The Manzanillo International Terminal (MIT) in Panama has gone live on a new terminal operating system (TOS) from Tideworks Technology, becoming the first terminal to implement Tideworks’ latest generation Mainsail 10 application.
“We have had an opportunity to experience Mainsail 10 and found that it is extremely intuitive and responsive,” said Stacy Hatfield, general manager at Manzanillo International Terminal (MIT).
“Our team collaborated closely with Tideworks to successfully deploy the platform. We have also begun integrating Mainsail 10 with the variety of third-party tools and technologies in use at MIT to increase efficiency across the terminal.”
Mainsail 10 was developed to provide improved access to real-time operational data, to allow terminals to improve their decision making and increase the flow of cargo through their facilities.
The TOS is customisable to allow operators to create individualised user experiences and generate ad-hoc reports that meet their specific needs. The software was also built to be able to integrate with back-office accounting and ERP systems, and other relevant third-party systems.
“We are thrilled to introduce our next-generation TOS that will offer a strategic advantage to terminal operators worldwide,” said Thomas Rucker, president of Tideworks.
“The successful go-live of Mainsail 10 at MIT is the first deployment of our latest marine TOS and signifies another milestone in our long-term partnership with MIT. Mainsail 10 provides terminal operators with an extremely flexible, world-class TOS platform that enables growth and enhanced efficiencies.”
Tideworks will continue to offer ongoing maintenance and support services following the go-live of the system, which includes technical support and software upgrades.
