Lockdown Feat: TCS Deploys Digital Solution Remotely to Help Adani Ports Transform Mundra Operations
Tata Consultancy Services’ DynaPORT Solution, Implemented Through Secure Borderless Workspaces™, to Help APSEZ Automate and Optimize Operations
Mumbai, June 23, 2020: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS), a leading global IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, announced that it has successfully deployed TCS DynaPORT, a state-of-the-art terminal operating system at the Mundra CT4 terminal for Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone (APSEZ) Limited, India’s largest private port operator and end-to-end logistics provider. The deployment was completed remotely, while under a lockdown, leveraging TCS’ Secure Borderless Workspaces™ (SBWS™) model.
APSEZ operates 11 strategically located ports and terminals that represent 24 percent of India’s port capacity. As part of the company’s growth and transformation journey, it chose TCS to deploy the DynaPORT solution at the Mundra terminal, a multipurpose port that serves as a major economic gateway.
DynaPORT, currently powering more than 80 terminals across the globe, is a one-stop solution for order-to-invoice processes and supports multi-modal (vessel, rail, truck and barge) and multi-purpose (container, break-bulk, liquid bulk, dry bulk and ro-ro) requirements by leveraging digital platforms to address key challenges.
India’s countrywide lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic meant that port operations, and the implementation, ground to a halt. The TCS team switched to SBWS, a transformative operating model that allows organizations to fully and seamlessly transition to virtual workspaces, and proceeded to implement DynaPORT at CT4.
With DynaPORT, APSEZ can expect to reduce its total cost of ownership, improve terminal performance, accelerate business transformation and ensure resource optimization. The success of this remote implementation is viewed as a gamechanger that will enable terminal operators to roll out applications faster.
Capt Unmesh Abhyankar, Joint President, CEO Office, APSEZ, said, “The abnormal becomes normal. With the announcement of 75% work from home by TCS, it gave us the inspiration, and the site team was also up to the mark to take it forward. As I have said, I will continue my belief in TCS to deliver against all odds, and your product is proving it.”
Sridharan Narayanan, Global Head – Ports & Cargo, Travel, Transportation and Hospitality unit, TCS, said, “As a growth and transformation partner, we are committed to bringing together the very best of TCS to help our customers meet their business objectives even in uncertain times. This implementation is a testament to the effectiveness of the Secure Borderless Workspaces model, and to our customer-centricity.”
