Navis launches visual workflow application for terminals

Navis, part of Cargotec Corporation, has launched its Compass visual workflow management application to improve the clarity and efficiency of processes when a vessel visits a terminal.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The Compass application enables all users to see vessels’ upcoming visits, comments, and important information on the vessel, ensuring clarity on what tasks need to be done and who will be working on them.  The application shows when the vessels call the terminal and includes the activities that take place before, during and after the vessel visit. This includes berth and vessel planning, execution, continuous improvement, claims management and commercial discussions.

The application is useful for a variety of users including vessel planners and EDI clerks who need to see the details of a vessel’s visit, the workflow tasks, and other important information. Planning and operations managers can see the process and accurately set priorities and steer the team and have all information in one place for meetings. If there are disputes, the claims and commercial managers have visibility of who and when was involved in the planning and decision making during the vessel call and can easily see how well partners adhered to the terminal’s commercial agreements.

The Compass application is easy to implement, with multiple deployment options suitable for every terminal. The application uses the Navis Smart technology to unlock vast amounts of data within the TOS for greater visibility and speed across all parts of an operation.

Younus Aftab, chief product officer, Navis, commented: “At present, management of different tasks and processes across the terminal container flow take place in silos, with little standardisation or real-time information exchange, and few opportunities for collaboration.

We are addressing these fundamental constraints to give our terminal customers the critical visibility and connectivity required to reach the next level of efficiency and productivity. Our end-to-end application ensures the availability of critical planning information exactly when it is needed, enabling more informed decision-making and better service.”

Andy Barrons, chief strategy officer, Navis, stated: “The Compass application provides a single source of operational truth that offers tremendous benefit and clarity to all parties. All users will now be on the same page and have access to the same information, leading to fewer instances of miscommunication. The real-time visibility alerts terminals to potential issues early on and allows them more time to take corrective action while a complete and visible list of planning tasks ensures that everyone’s priorities are aligned and leads to less idle time and rework.”{/mprestriction}
