Martinair scraps legacy system
26 / 03 / 2013
MARTINAIR has scrapped its legacy system in favour of a full roll-out of CHAMP Cargosystems’ Cargospot community software.
The complete core full freighter business now runs exclusively on the new-generation platform.
Martinair, part of the Air France-KLM-Martinair cargo group, is using Cargospot’s fully integrated air cargo application suite for all core business processes, says a spokesman.
This includes sales, handling operations and revenue accounting – on a networkwide basis.The rollout covered some 900 users in numerous countries and several time zones all around the globe.
Fully integrated, yet described as ‘very flexible’, Cargospot enables Martinair to respond faster to changes in both customer demand and consequential business process change, a spokesperson insists. “Cargospot also gives Martinair optimal operational and commercial agility.”
The project was a very complex one as it demanded the customisation of more than 25 Martinair business-specific product enhancements.
Air France-KLM-Martinair Cargo works with several different GSA, GHA and own stations in its global network and all of these had to be fully integrated.
“The new software tools will help to make us even more successful,” says Rob Veltman, vice-president, full freighter management, at Air France- KLM-Martinair Cargo.
