Story behind MariApps inception

MariApps is a Bernhard Schulte company. Bernhard Schulte was using 3rd party software products for its ship management and owning needs until 2010 and then it decided to do something in-house. The company started first being the IT division of Bernhard Schulte and later in 2014 became a separate entity which started selling cutting edge solutions to shipping companies across the globe. MariApps is a pioneer in web based ship management ERP. We have built a unique product which caters to all the ship management needs.

Its ERP covers all modules like Crewing, Payroll, PMS, Purchase, Accounts, Catering, Voyage, Dry Dock, QDMS, Insurance etc to name a few. It is a web based system which can operate in all browsers and in all platforms like mobile, tablet and desktop.

Straight from the delighted customer!

“The MariApps Team, with their PAL e3 web solution, has introduced tangible efficiencies and brought a fresh approach to IT systems we use daily. We have been working with them for the last 5 years, and they took the time to understand our business and delivered exactly what we needed. With PAL Dashboards and Customer Web Access, I can now get the information that I need, any time, with a focus on the data that is relevant to me. The same applies to my colleagues, who get tailored information, even when they are traveling, as PAL is fully mobile platform compliant. PAL e3 system is used in all our global offices, and has put critical information just a click away. Now I don’t have to wait anymore for a long time to get inconsistent management reports, but I can concentrate on analyzing the financial and operational performance of our worldwide operations. The implementation of the different modules has enabled us to offshore our accounts department to a lower cost environment and the projected cost savings and efficiency gains could be well achieved.

The MariApps Team has the right ‘can do attitude’ and I look forward to continue working with them on further enhancements of the software.”
