Greece-based shipowner and manager Kyklades Maritime has begun full installation of JiBe’s web-based integrated maritime ERP software for its ship management business.
Kyklades’s selection of JiBe as its ERP system is part of a growing trend among the leaders of the industry towards fully web-based, integrated systems. JiBe is an independent software-as-a-service (“SaaS”) maritime ERP that is not owned by a shipping company or class society.
With the addition of Anglo-Eastern in 2019, JiBe now has more than 1,200 client ships in its ecosystem and over 250 employees globally.
"We are excited to begin this project with JiBE. We have been looking for a dedicated shipping ERP Tech Company that has a large existing client base, while also seeking best practices from its clients to continuously improve. The ERP implementation is a strategic project for us and our team is focused on the smooth implementation and ready to complete this project swiftly with the cooperation of the JiBE professionals. We strongly believe that the future of ship management is in big data, machine learning and powerful industry-wide networks for risk management”, said Dimitris Patrikios, CEO of Kyklades Maritime Corporation.
“We are thrilled that Kyklades has selected JiBE,” said Yariv Zghoul, CEO of JiBe. “JiBe is committed to delivering one version of its product to all Clients, eliminating expensive customisations, and without extra charges for upgrades and updates. A modern ERP that was designed with a web framework from the get-go can run a single version for all clients, with basically no need for customization. The result is up to 70 per cent in reduced IT and office admin spending while delivering the most advanced solution to the ship manager or owner.”
With the addition of Anglo-Eastern as a customer, JiBe's big data and machine learning capabilities, the ‘UpWind’ platform, have now passed the critical mass of data required to provide in-depth learning-based risk management, performance management, and procurement tools for the entire industry.
