Integration specialist Orbita Ingenieria has successfully completed the 'Navis Ready' validation of its gate operating system (GateOS) with Navis N4 2.6 after a three-month collaborative effort.
Francisco Grau, Director of Ports and Terminal at Orbita, said: “The purpose of this work has been to provide Orbita’s Engineers with the knowledge of the gate processes and methods of N4 and to develop standardised and tested, interfaces between our two platforms. Orbita wants to be up to date and ready for any integration projects with the market leader in TOS systems.”
Successfully achieving the Navis Ready validation confirms that Orbita’s Gate Systems have been tested against the most recent release of Navis N4 2.6 and that they are compatible with some of the most common scenarios in gate operations.
Clients that are already working with a Navis Terminal Operating System (TOS), or those that are currently in a migration process, can now be certain that the majority of the integration work between the TOS and Orbita’s gate systems has already been completed.
Navis N4 2.6 release has been tested with the current versions of Orbita’s GateSuite solutions which includes the Gate Operating System (GateOS), GateKiosk, GateClerk and YardKiosk.
The test run results show a complete success as all test cases have passed. The official report will be issued by Navis in the next few days and will be made available on the Navis and Orbita web sites.
Sanket Sheth, Director of Global Technical Services at Navis, concluded: “Navis is very pleased with Orbita’s approach, to complete typical integration tasks in advance of an implementation at a customer site. Customers can be confident that choosing Orbita will reduce the risks as they can see the level of integration achieved along with the supported business process flows in advance.”
