Within a few weeks, state-owned Transnet Port Terminals (TPT) will launch a new version of its container terminal operating system, Navis Sparcs N4. According to CFO Sharla Chetty, this latest version will set the new architectural foundation for added features and capabilities.
The Navis Smart platform will incorporate apps such as the truck booking application and real-time operations insights, as well as other features such as berth and equipment optimization.
“As technology becomes an integral part of executing daily tasks, the upgrade introduces improved performance, reliability, security and scalability, providing support for later database software versions. Business intelligence and operational monitoring dashboards have been tuned for better usability and performance,” Chetty told engineeringnews.co.za.
The information and communications technology team will be remotely supported by an experienced team of Navis engineers from around the world.
