Kerala firm inks deal with Maldives Ports Authority

Technopark-headquartered IBS Software has signed a deal with the Maldives Port Authority to implement and maintain iPort, a port operations management solution.

iPort, developed by IBS, will optimise the management of core port and marine operations at Male port, reducing throughput time of vessels and cargo.

In a press release Friday, IBS said that its iPort was selected for port operations after an international bid and detailed evaluation.

V.K. Mathews, chairperson and CEO of the group, said their experience and expertise in the transportation and logistics was their key strength behind building functionally and technologically superior software products.

"We are certain that iPort will ensure improved service levels and revenue. We look forward to a long-lasting relationship with the Maldives Ports Authority," said Mathews.

iPort is a comprehensive and fully-integrated port operations management solution that supports the entire gamut of port operations, ranging from marine operations, cargo and container operations, yard operations, cargo delivery to billing of all services rendered by the port.

iPort currently manages three ports under the Sharjah Ports Authority.

Mahdi Imad, managing director, Maldives Port Authority, said iPort would help them manage their resources optimally while helping them adapt to changing business needs.

IBS group is a leading provider of new-generation IT solutions to the global travel, transportation and logistics industry.

A specialist in the domain, IBS offers a range of products that manage mission-critical operations of major airlines, airports, oil and gas companies, seaports, cruise lines and tour operators worldwide.
