ShipServ Signs Pact with AMOS Group
ShipServ, the marine eProcurement platform for ship operators, announced it is set to deliver a full supplier integration solution for AMOS Group Ltd, the SGX-listed global provider of diversified products services and solutions to the marine and offshore industries.
The new full integration solution will enable AMOS Group to increase efficiencies and the speed of processing multiple transactions, significantly reducing labour time as well as quickly responding to RFQs. This will help drive customer retention and the ability to win more business through faster turnaround times.
The development is an important part of AMOS Group’s digitization strategy, which includes investing in the implementation of a new ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system as it looks to strengthen its global customer network and deliver a campaign of facility modernisation and certification.
This is designed to deliver efficiency improvements and enhance capabilities across its 11 international locations in Asia, the Middle East and Europe. The company also recently opened its newly upgraded Logistics and Fulfilment Centre in Gul Circle, Singapore.
Commenting on the agreement, Dan Tan, Chief Executive Officer, AMOS Group said: “The shipping and offshore markets are being transformed by the opportunities of digitalisation and using technology to drive efficiencies and improve the ability and performance in responding to customer demands and delivering more value. Our focus is on providing our customers with a modern, seamless and streamlined logistics and supply infrastructure; integrating the ShipServ trading platform into our ERP system is a critical component to achieving this and an important element within our digitalisation journey.”
Prior to the integration, AMOS Group was utilizing ShipServ’s SmartSupplier solution, the advanced Outlook-style order management tool used to prioritize and manage transactions.
The integration will be phased, with the initial steps focusing on integrating its Shanghai and Hong Kong offices with the ShipServ platform, followed by the Korea office in phase two.
Sharon Gill, Senior VP Sales and General Manager Singapore, ShipServ said: “When the number of transactions that a supplier processes reaches a critical mass, full integration with the ShipServ platform provides a significant return on investment."
