Navis, a part of Cargotec Corporation, recently announced the launch of Navis Smart Suite – a set of applications to digitize planning and execution for terminal operations. These Navis Smart applications are available by subscription to N4 customers who are interested in leveraging data to improve operations in and around the terminal. With the launch of the Navis Smart architecture in March 2019, Navis customers are able to unleash the power of untapped data collected in the TOS. Smart applications can be developed and deployed without the need for upgrades, eliminating the need for IT development resources and enabling operational teams to realize the benefits of new functionality.
A sample of Navis Smart Suite of applications include:
Mobile Reefer: Mobile Reefer ensures data accountability, reduces errors and increases productivity for reefer technicians, eliminating the need for manual tracking of reefer containers within a terminal.
Tower Checker: This application increases safety within the yard by identifying and flagging towers of stacked containers that are creating a safety hazard for workers. The planning features of the app allow customers to resolve problems during loading sequences and avoid the creation of new towers from being created.
Berth Planning: This application enables terminal operators to digitize their berth plans. With this service terminals can easily plan berths against proforma and graduate from error-prone spreadsheets.
“Ports, terminals and the vessels that transport goods and materials from one corner of the globe to another are crucial components of today’s global economy, as is the wave of smart technologies that allow them to respond to ever-evolving consumer and trade demands,” said Younus Aftab, Chief Product Officer at Navis. “With N4 as a core system, we are developing ‘cloud first’ applications for customers to derive even more value from N4 to support their business. The release of this suite of Navis Smart applications reflects our plan to deliver the next generation TOS.”
