Jade Software’s product for ports, Jade Master Terminal, is proving to be in demand from marine terminals all around the world.
Already in use by mixed cargo ports and terminals from New Zealand to Norway, the Kiwi-based company has secured 19 new terminals across the Middle East, Europe and Africa (EMEA) in the last three months to September.
“Demand has been building for the product over the last two years as legacy systems struggle to deal with demand for integration and visibility across the supply chain when managing mixed cargo and industry pressure," says David Lindsay, Managing Director, Jade.
Lindsay says Jade’s focus on mixed cargo ports and terminals is paying off, as this is the fastest growing segment of the port market.
“We believe this acceleration is a trend that will continue and therefore we’re committed to invest in building capability, particularly off-shore," Lindsay adds.
"Combined with its growing reputation for high quality software, timely implementations, and support capability, Jade is becoming increasingly well positioned to assume the number one position in this market."
While this past quarter has seen success in the EMEA region, Lindsay says Jade is also focused on driving growth in the US market and expects to secure significant new business from this region in the next six months.
“This growth would mean Jade would double the size of its international offices to ensure it continued to provide the best local experience for its customers," Lindsay adds. "Implementations are currently underway in Africa, Europe, USA and Central America.
“Jade will stay focussed on maintaining its hard-won reputation. This goes beyond the software. The relationship with our customers and improving their business is hugely important and this emphasis will continue.”
