Terminal operating system provider Navis has reached a new milestone that reinforces its partnership position in the market with terminals across the globe with an announcement that since June 2015, seven more terminals have gone live on its Navis N4 Terminal Operating System (TOS).
The companies which have gone live on the N4 TOS since June, 2015 include Peel Ports, ACT Burgas Port in Bulgaria and the Ports of Auckland.
All seven go-lives covers every region of the world and brings the total number of live N4 terminals to 118.
The success and volume of terminal go-lives this summer is largely attributable to the partnership and collaboration that the Navis Professional Services team establishes with its customers to ensure TOS implementation success.
The comprehensive implementation services offered by Navis include the integration of operational technologies with the TOS, pre and post go-live system testing, infrastructure analysis, operational performance tuning, support for product extensions and in-depth staff-training.
These specialised planning and implementation services are available to help terminals ensure a seamless move to N4, whether from a legacy in-house system, another third-party system or from legacy Navis SPARCS/Express TOS.
Scott Fleming, VP of Navis Professional Services, said: “Terminal operators can leverage a variety of implementation options with Navis Professional Services ranging from a complete implementation package to self-implementation support, or a combination of both.
“We’ve been working hard to expand our team, our skills and improve our standard service offerings for customers, to enable terminals to achieve their anticipated ROI more quickly.”
As challenges in the ocean shipping industry become more complex due to larger vessels, carrier alliances, increasing container volumes and massive infrastructure expansion projects, container terminals worldwide are seeking strategic technology partners, rather than software vendors.
These partnerships not only help to improve operations but also prepare and fortify terminals for the needs of tomorrow. The newest set of N4 implementations, consisting of both new and existing terminal customers from around the world, reinforces the continued market demand for Navis services, software and support as a way to transform terminal operations.
