Report 'Genesis System' Can Produce Record Fuel Savings For Vessel Owners
American Information Management Inc. (AIM) of Bay St. Louis, Miss., has developed a computerized information management system for the commercial marine industry (ships, offshore service vessels and river boats). The system, called The Genesis System®, includes proprietary software programs for use aboard vessels and by office management.
Realizing that the marine transportation industry must reduce the cost of operations and yet remain efficient, Walter Todd, founder of American Information Management Inc., developed a format for the information that was needed by both the boat operator and shore management, along with equipment to produce the information. Mr. Todd has been a director and presi- dent since the inception of AIM in 1981. In 1986, AIM formed Genesis Systems, Inc. as a wholly owned subsidiary. Genesis Systems, Inc. is responsible for all operations, markets and service for The Genesis System worldwide.
According to the manufacturer, the system will save approximately 15 percent to 50 percent of the daily fuel operation expenses of commercial vessels, savings of $6,000 to $30,000 per month. The system includes engine fuel burn measurement, special navigation equipment, speed over bottom, engine efficiency, Vessel Trak, Trip Trak, Rudder Trak, electronic log, accounting, performance objectives and many other functions to help both vessel and shoreside management increase productivity.
The company services marine transportation companies on the U.S. Inland Waterways System, the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean, East Coast, West Coast and the deep sea.
