Hendrik-Ido-Ambacht, the Netherlands, March 26, 2019 – IT Partner is excited to announce that they signed an agreement with Port St. Maarten for developing and managing a cloud-based Port Community System (PCS).
Port St. Maarten is the leading port in the Caribbean and offers cruise, cargo and yachting facilities. The port is fully automated since 2009 by using the GLS software developed by IT Partner. GLS is used for port management, container, general cargo and ro-ro operations, dock master/berth planning, cruise and ultra-yacht services as well as billing and invoicing.
The Port Community System will operate as an extension to the port. The software will be developed as a secure cloud-based solution with several web-based and app-based applications. Various parties besides the port, like agencies, shipping companies, ministries and customs are going to use the software. The agreement between Port St. Maarten and IT Partner has a focus on two years of agile development. The first features are expected to go live in the 2nd half of 2019.
IT Partner is looking forward to continuing the excellent cooperation with Port St. Maarten.
