Accenture will draft IT strategy for the expansion of Shanghai International Port (Group).
Accenture did not disclose the size of the IT deal.
As per the IT deal, Accenture will build an information management platform that will use analytics.
SIPG, which is aiming to retain its market position as a leading terminal operator, will benefit as it can improve the analysis of operations and support its decision-making processes.
SIPG’s new information management platform will be based on a set of key performance indicators.
Accenture says its solution will enable insight into customer service levels based on data analysis of real-time productivity information of vessels as they berth in Shanghai.
In addition, integration with video footage will allow customers to view real-time broadcast footage of their vessel via an iPad application.
Won-Joon Lee, managing director of Accenture’s Infrastructure Practice, Asia-Pacific, said: “This will drive the adoption of new technologies as well as analytics and shared services as port operators look to consolidate their leadership positions and fight off a wave of new market entrants.”
Meanwhile, Accenture recently renewed its business, application and infrastructure support services arrangement for the Technical and Further Education (TAFE) student solution in Queensland, Australia for 2 more years, marking a 10-year relationship with the Department of Education, Training and Employment.
