  • (1888PressRelease) October 21, 2014 - UTC is currently using multiple software solutions across their offices to manage its operations. UTC's vision is to implement a single software platform which can make its global operation more efficient and effective. The major challenge was the standardization of processes, consolidation of operations and business information across their branches to improve quality and speed of decision making. UTC also wanted to enhance its customer service capabilities by providing complete visibility across the supply chain.

    UTC had evaluated various freight forwarding software applications to find the right solution to fulfil all its requirements. After a detailed evaluation process of different modules, features and functionalities of many applications, UTC concluded that Logi-Sys is the most suitable solution to manage their growing worldwide operation. The selection was based on fulfillment of multiple key criteria set up by UTC's evaluation team. The high points were the comprehensive coverage of freight forwarding operations, a powerful finance module, visibility, robustness and flexibility that Logi-Sys furnishes.

    Logi-Sys will help UTC to integrate their worldwide offices into one single platform for global visibility along with streamlining of operations and financial processes. Logi-Sys will be deployed in multiple UTC branches across 30 countries spread in the Americas, Europe, Asia and Oceania. At the end of this multi-phase project, UTC will achieve integration of various business operations and enhanced control over processes to attain standardisation. The first phase has already begun with implementation in USA which will be followed by UTC's offices in Brazil, China and India.

    Mr. Brian Posthumus, President & CEO, UTC Overseas said, "In Softlink, we found an ideal partner to match our global IT requirements of this fast moving industry. We trust Softlink because of their proven abilities in Quick Delivery, Effective Training and Unmatched Support. By adopting this simple and easy to use, the transition from the existing system will be very smooth. I believe Logi-Sys will help us to optimize resource utilization allowing us to cut costs and grow faster."

    Mirko Knezevic, Global COO of UTC Overseas said that "I am sure that Log-Sys will help us not only to integrate and streamline our operations which are spread across the globe but also empower management to take informed decisions".

    This project is led by Mr. Eric Soto, Global Technical & Development Lead at UTC, with the strong support of Mr. Edward Vaz, Chief Financial Officer of UTC Group. Mr. Vaz, said, "We are very excited and looking forward to achieving great results through this project. Logi-Sys is a perfect fit for our requirements as it is a true web based end to end ERP Platform that will integrate and automate our global branches. Logi-Sys has a very powerful accounting module which will help us in controlling the cost and revenue leakages and also to provide better control over collection processes."

Being chosen as a technology partner for a multi-national company like UTC Overseas is a huge testimonial to the capabilities of both Softlink and Logi-Sys.
