Integrated mission-critical business system for shipowners



The shipping industry involves investment in new construction, which is an important step by ship owners as it is time-consuming and requires decision-based on long-term investment. Hence, "TRANS-Owner" helps guide the ship's life cycle from shipbuilding to sales.

Highly Accurate Financial Forecast

TRANS-Owner software provides efficient and accurate financial information, which act as a solution for shipowners investing in a new construction that requires long-term perspective decision-making for recovering the funds.

Flexible Simulation Elements

The software attempts financial forecasts, thereby helping in measuring profit and loss of investment through forecasted hire rate, providing rates for floating interest, exchange and inflation. It also helps predict the final return on sale from the time of sale and selling price.

Accelerate Settlement Of Accounts By Linking Accounting Systems

Our TRANS-Owner software holds contract information, which is not specifically used for financial forecasting but also to get linked with TRANS-Account (Maritime Accounting System). With this contractual information, you get the chance to add accuracy to your daily operations systems within its operations. Moreover, the journal entries, including accrued interest, depreciation, and the TC Hire are automatically calculated, which further helps in early account settlement.

System Configuration

TRANS-Owner is a tool that works with the TRANS-Account (Maritime Accounting System) to manage the ship’s business cycle comprehensively. Seamlessly linked to the TRANS-Account reduces the workload for complicated tasks such as preparing settlement, accrual and deferral journals and helps in the budgeting and profit forecast from external systems through data import tools.

Main Functions

Shipbuilding Contract Management (OW)

New construction in shipbuilding will require multiple payments related to the whole process from contract to delivery, such as keel laying, launching instalment payment. The user can register the delivery instalment schedule as shipbuilding contract information in the contract entry, and the payable data will be registered in the accounting system during payment processing.

Loan Contract Management (LM)

Ship-building is a costly and expensive process, and hence, the borrowing contracts are finalised with financial institutes and other parties. Moreover, it takes a well-scheduled loan process, including payments and reimbursements. The TRANS-Owner software incorporates a borrowing system, which holds repayment schedules and contract information. It has a financing plan screen that allows you to inquire about the link between payment schedules, shipyard, and borrowings. It further allows you to check the financial allowance status concerning payment schedules that change as per ship-building’s moments and progress. Besides, the system automates journal entries for repayment and borrowing through repayment schedules. By the end of the financial year, interest over-due is posted, with long and short term transfers are recorded.

Time Charter Contract Management (TC)

The software provides a TC management system that includes all the charter related information, just enter the hire schedule and information in the system to obtain the hire income ledger and settlement slip at financial closing time, the hire income apportionment is automatically generated and saved in the accounting system. The TC management system incorporated in the TRANS-Owner registers accounting data such as time charter settlement slip, charter hire slip, brokerage slip etc.

Ship Cost Management (SC)

The system for ship cost management contains an annual budget provided and arranged by companies that are registered every month with each cost depending upon the forecasting about the increase in each cost item. Further, the payment data for advanced payments done monthly is stored in an accounting system that helps manage forecasting and actual payment.


Enhanced Purchasing Function!

The new feature enables you to manage purchases via single sources incorporating purchase requests through vessels, supplier emails, quotation requests, automated import quotations, comparison of quotes, cost recording and allocation. This includes orders, shipping costs, debt payment vouchers, and creating general bank transfers with remittance data. You may also use reverse-lookup the past estimation as per the product categories. You can separate deliveries and develop debt payment data when there are instalment deliveries. Besides, the system automates journal entries required for budget management, including order balances and estimated unpaid amounts on receiving the goods that are not invoiced. It’s a long-awaited system to accelerate purchase operation efficiency.

Fixed Asset Management (FA)

At the time of ship delivery, the construction in progress as of accounting term will be recorded during transferring to FA from OW. It will be depreciated using the depreciation method every period during the useful life in the module and the ship price and profit recording by disposal and depreciation data. These accounting data will be registered automatically into the TRANS-Account. With the TRANS-Owner, the profit forecasting will be accurate.
