Xantic: Focus on Integrated Solutions

Friday, September 10, 2004

Long gone are the days when companies could profitably compete with a single service or product. Today's evolved satcom provider is not simply selling airtime, rather the trend is to offer a suite of tailored business solutions unique to the maritime business. In this regard, Xantic has clearly blazed a path, staying ahead of the competitive curve via customer-driven R&D and timely acquisitions. "Everyone is focusing on the integration of systems," said Arthur C. Hendriks, AMOS Director of Marketing. "We want to cover the full business processes of our customers." Proving the company's commitment was its recent announced strategic alliance with Veson Nautical, a provider of integrated management systems for the shipping industry. Xantic and Veson Nautical will produce and distribute AMOS Chartering & Operations, a software product that takes an innovative approach to organizing and managing a shipping company. AMOS Chartering & Operations will be suitable for operators of dry bulk, tank, parcel and general cargo vessels. Xantic's network of regional offices will provide consulting and support for AMOS Chartering & Operations. The new product will be integrated with the rest of Xantic's AMOS Business Suite so that information is shared seamlessly between ship and shore.

The New AMOS Business Suite

To maintain top of the line software, AMOS is continuing to invest heavily in R&D. Many new and known AMOS products have been seamlessly integrated into the new AMOS Business Suite. All modules in the AMOS Business Suite share the same AMOS framework, same single database and same technology. Plus they're fully integrated, providing comprehensive functionality and reducing complexity. Data can be easily shared between AMOS modules and across departments, eliminating re-entry and errors. The modules in AMOS Business Suite now share the same look-and-feel. Users familiar with one of the AMOS products will require minimal training to start using the full suite. Along with the new AMOS software: Voyage Management, Personnel, and Quality and Safety; the Business Suite will also feature AMOS Maintenance & Purchase and Mail. Planning voyage and cargo activities, keeping track of actual voyage execution and progress, and monitoring events that effect operational efficiency are all parts of the newly integrated Voyage Management software, an essential tool for all shipping companies.
