Ports and port operators
The equipment used at ports easily falls under the category “high-value capital assets”. API PRO is helpful in maintaining these type of capital assets. This enables the possibility to develop the full handling potential of the port and its equipment.
Maintaining a port is a high demanding and difficult task. Equipment needs to be maintained and tasks of different kinds are performed. If equipment is taken out of operation it doesn’t take long until the pressure of the work load quickly rises. API PRO provides you with the right tools to be able to control and optimize the productivity, and in doing so lowering the down time.
When working at a port it can be difficult to gain an overview of the total work area, so API PRO added the Graphical Navigator as the solution to this problem. In a simple and uncomplicated way, users can access the whole equipment structure. With the Graphical Navigator users can create a digital map of the surrounding area which assists in daily work activities. With the Graphical Navigator users can easily access information on different detailed levels just by a few clicks on the map. Each new click gives users access to a new level of information. For example, users can obtain a map of the complete area, which provides the overall big picture, and at the same time use the same program to create a work order for a specific object.
Furthermore, modules like, Stock Control and Purchase Management, are of great use to port industries. Stock control data is the information needed to tell API PRO which parts are located in which stock locations. The stock control data allows you to control stock quantities and do automatic reordering. By integrating the Stock Control module and the Purchase Management module, you will have access to fully updated information about stock levels, material availability, expected delivery dates for ordered parts and committed costs on projects at any time.
