Thome Ship Management has migrated its existing Thome Competence Management System (TCMS) into the Seagull Competence Manager online platform to manage its ever-growing demand for crew training and competence gap analysis as part of the extensive Thome crewing training investment and unique Thome Human Element Concept.
Thome Ship Management is a dynamic global provider of integrated ship management services to the international shipping and offshore industries. Based in Singapore, and celebrating 50 years of service, the Thome Group of Companies represents a unique combination of the best elements of Scandinavian shipping tradition with the modern drive of Asian business enterprise.
Thome provides a global service extending to 300 vessels supported by over 600 shore staff and a pool of 10,000 seafarers globally.
After several years of using another software vendor to manage its Thome Competence Management System, Thome has transferred to the Seagull Competence Manager platform. The process involved a system clean-up, review and restructuring of defined competences, which are ship and rank specific. Seagull also assisted Thome in the integration of the Thome Competence Management System with their Crew Management system.
“We have been using the Seagull CBT Training System onboard our vessels for the past few years and have been very satisfied with the products and services offered by Seagull,” says Sartaj Gill, Head of Group Crew Training, Thome Ship Management. “Since we saw the need to improve the functionality of the software platform last year, we decided to transfer our competence elements and assessment results to Seagull’s Competence Manager allowing our employees to use one system for both training and assessment. We are very happy with the cooperation with Seagull during the process and are confident that we now have a solution that fully covers our needs.”
Building a competent crew through continuous training, gap identification and assessment is key to improving ship performance.
The Seagull training and competence system has been designed for easy use by crew members, as well as giving managers ashore a full overview of each seafarer’s development and level of competence allowing them to identify candidates ready for promotion.
“When Thome made inquiries to change their IT platform to manage their Thome Competence Management System we were able to demonstrate that our solution is the best available and is a working solution already used by many other major shipping companies,” says Frank Pete, Director Software Systems, Seagull AS . “We were happy to take on the challenge as we see every such opportunity as a way to learn more about industry requirements and needs. We acknowledge our partners to be the most powerful resource to guide us on how to improve our products and services to ensure they have the most efficient tools available to solve their challenges. We look forward to continuing to work with Thome Ship Management on developing the competence of their seafarers and our systems and services.”

New Thome Head of Tanker Crewing Operations - Henrik Bisbo
It is with great excitement and equally great expectations that I have taken over the position as Head of Tanker Crewing Operations with Thome Ship Management based in Singapore as from 17 February 2014. I shall be replacing Reji Joseph and will report to the Chief Operations Officer tankers as part of the Thome tanker division management team.
The shipping industry in general, and the tanker segment in particular, have undergone tremendous changes over the past years, and everything points in the direction of even more changes to come. At Thome we take great pride in being at the forefront of the industry in all aspects, and very few people involved in shipping will disagree that the single most important asset to any company is its staff. Our ships will go nowhere without you and your dedicated work and efforts in a taxing and strenuous environment.
A married family man and a proud ex-seafarer with almost twenty years at sea followed by another almost twenty years in shore based positions in shipping companies in Asia, Africa and Europe, I feel confident that we can work together towards an even better and brighter future for the company and for each of us individually. To achieve that a positive and constructive communication is paramount, and I am confident that we can establish such a positive and constructive dialogue by means of personal contact at seminars, during visits to your ships or your visits to the office in Singapore or elsewhere. Our dedicated team in the crewing department in Singapore together with all the crewing offices in Asia and Europe will work closely with you to ensure a mutually beneficial relationship.
Whatever thoughts and ideas you might have on how to improve on safety, security, procedures and anything else you might think of, please bring them forward. We at the office depend on your input from the ships to be able to effect changes where needed. A new initiative aimed at facilitating an efficient communication on such matters is under way, and you will receive more information about this shortly.
Our crewing executives are your primary contacts in the office for day to day issues, but in case of urgent and serious matters, please feel free to contact me directly at: email@example.com or call me at +65 6329 4327.
I am looking very much forward to embarking on this journey with you.
