- This customizable system automates the port specific functional activities.
- Integrates the activities of different departments of the ports.
The main objective of this integration is to make the following port operations faster and flexible, thus improving the quality of the services being offered to the customers.
EIPMS Primary Program Modules:
Cargo Handling, Storage and Delivery
EIPMS takes care of the export and import cargo movement by different modes of transportation. This is required to be on hand to speed up cargo clearance and cut the long waiting time for loading and unloading of ships. It therefore helps in avoiding port congestion and reduces the demurrage cost.
One of the major tasks of the port authority is to bring the ships in quickly and safely and vice versa. For this, appropriate berth allotment and cargo movement is necessary, keeping in mind the berth availability, climatic conditions and the type of cargo. EIPMS facilitates this berth management so as to ensure fast and safe port services.
The system supports the Gate Supervisor of the port to monitor and track the movement of every vehicle permitted to pass through the gates by the port authority.
For efficient regulation of port services, EIPMS manages the inward and outward flow of materials. This improves the inventory control and increases safety of the cargo by proper inspection.
Usually all port authorities have vast expanses of land under their control. IPMS assists in appropriate allotment of this land and therefore ensure optimum utilization of the available resources.
Civil Engineering Information
The port authority should have the complete information of the big and small construction work being carried out at the port premises. This information includes details of the tenders, the lowest bidder and the financial and physical progress of the construction work. EIPMS helps civil engineers maintain the required documents and also generates consolidated reports of the same.
Mechanical Engineering Information
From time to time, ports have to undertake huge amounts of repair and maintenance work owing to the nature of activities at the port. EIPMS helps document the scheduling and the expenses on the repair works in different divisions like electric, mechanical and dry docks.
The system also prepares department wise as well as consolidated financial reports. These help in analyzing the port’s overall performance as well as help identify potential cost cutting areas.
The HR module in the EIPMS maintains documents of employees’ recruitment, payroll, training and other welfare activities. This helps in determining employee productivity levels and thus gives direction to the measures to be taken by the port authority to address their needs.
Key Advantages of EIPMS:-
- Enhanced port planning and operational activities.
- Efficient, fast, cost effective and secured services to customers.
- Ensured Online monitoring by the top management.
- Enhanced coordination among different departments and agencies of the port.
