The dedicated Marine Insurance Software

MARITIME SYSTEMS presents MARSYS , the dedicated software for marine insurance professionals (brokers, agents and companies).

MARSYS operates under a LAN/Windows environment.


MARSYS software is the result of an in depth analysis of a number of data systems of various insurance companies which cover the whole spectrum of the marine branch. From this MERISE data analysis, the conceptors established a model combining the data and organisation process involved in Marine Insurance.

Optimised to operate under a LAN system, MARSYS operates in its basic version with the « Interbase » database, Marsys can also operate under a Microsoft SQL Server environment. We can also propose Marsys in other DBMS versions (Oracle,DB2…) with a few changes of code with no cost to the customer.

It is possible for a user with a user name identification and password to make insurance requests on open policies or even to consult the statistics and loss files of any given policy.

Non-Marine Marsys

Recently, Marsys software has been enriched with a non-marine version, which can manage risks such as , industrial fire, professionnal liability, house-holder policies and more.

This non-marine MARSYS is being installed in an insurance company but has also been designed to be used in the brokerage field too.

The software is user friendly and reliable, and benefits from the same analysis tools and reporting methods that have been developed for the marine application but completely adapted to a non-marine environment.

The premiums are automatically generated from the Indices FFB, RI, BDM, which are some of the official french statistical data supports. They can of course be replaced by the relevant data index in the country of use.

Products can be defined with a large number of facultative or obligatory risks, such as NatCat, Gareat, (french war risk pool), different taxes including territorial taxation, which are all automatically managed.

MARSYS and Optiflux

Since January 2004, an electronic data information system between the marine insurance actors, companies, brokers and agents under the control of the French Cesam insurance bureau has seen the light.

The information exchange platform (BDI) is available on the Optiflux web site: Optiflux.

We also know how to generate Optiflux files and have developed the appropriate software to automatically deal with the integration of Optiflux files with our client companies.

We are at present working on a dedicated data base to enable brokers and marine underwriting agents to follow the exchanges and consult the corresponding Optiflux files,
