Leading marine terminal operator DP World has selected the Mainpac
2011 enterprise asset management solution for DP World Djazair in Algeria in order to ensure best practice asset management.
The project builds on a global strategic partnership between DP World and Mainpac. DP World Operations Efficiency Manager for Africa, Supachai Wattanaveerachai, had previously deployed Mainpac 2011 in Maputo, Mozambique.
He says that he was so impressed with the benefits of the system that he elected to implement it at DP World Djazair.
"We were looking for an integrated system to support engineering, purchasing and inventory management. We considered other vendors, but Mainpac was a clear standout when it came to providing the entire suite of services we were after, strong search capabilities and a secure, user friendly interface at a competitive price," Wattanaveerachai explains.
For DP World, one of the most important features of the Mainpac 2011 enterprise asset management solution that will help to simplify operations is Mainpac Asset Intelligence. Wattanaveerachai notes that it offers powerful, yet easy to use business intelligence capabilities, which in turn helps the organisation identify and analyse costs in time for the planning cycle.
"Since operations depend largely on measurement, Mainpac 2011 helps improve business performance and lead to profitable growth," he added.
Commenting on the announcement, Mainpac CEO Andy Mason says that "expansion of Mainpac 2011 is a strong indication that we are adding value with our integrated, performance-driven solution to Ports and Terminals, a strategic industry sector for Mainpac.
"We are very proud to have been selected for DP World Djazair. Having delivered immediate and lasting value from our Mainpac 2011 solution, we seek to maintain the relationship and supportDP World’s growth," he concludes.
