Incorporated in 1997 and with Norwegian-roots, BASS Software Limited has offices strategically located in Malaysia, Norway, Germany, Hong Kong, Cyprus and the Philippines. The company was part of a technology division of one of the world's major shipping organisation, Wilh Wilhelmsen ASA before operating as a separate business entity.
Since 1997, BASS has developed and delivered software products and services to ship owners, ship managers and crew managers, worldwide. Allocating 25 per cent of the company's annual costs to product innovation ensures that BASSnetTM Fleet Management Systems provide simple, effective, future proof, and easy to use software tools meeting the demands of shipping companies, today and tomorrow. The integrated suite is designed to optimize fleet administration and operations, planned maintenance, inventory control, purchasing, safety, quality and environment management, work flow and document management, crew & HR management, and accounting/finance.
Backed by a group of competent and experienced management team, BASS has grown from strength to strength, gaining recognition from leading companies in the maritime sector. Our staff has evolved from a dedicated team of pioneers to a mature organisation with a good balance between development, services and corporate management.

Our scope of solutions have extended from a single stand-alone application (financials software) to a full suite of Business Applications & Services for Shipping to enable industry users to have total control and visibility of their maritime operations chain.
BASS has also distinguished itself as one of a select few maritime software companies with a full suite of integrated fleet management systems and class approvals from five of the most prestigious class societies.
