TCS Enables Cochin To Become India's First e-Port
The project integrates the port's operational, financial, real estate and human resource systems on a unified 'Port Information System'.
Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has completed the ERP implementation of Cochin Port Trust to enable the south Indian port to become the country's first e-Port.
Christened 'e-thuramugham' or e-Port, the project integrates the port's operational, financial, real estate and human resource systems on a unified 'Port Information System'. Once fully functional, it will provide a real-time interface with customs, port users, banks and the port community system of the Indian Ports Association. The system will provide a single window facility to the trader for filing applications, receiving service bills, payments and enquiries.
N Ramachandran, chairman, Cochin Port Trust, said, "I am extremely happy to see the speedy implementation of e-thuramugham in record time of 10 months. With this, we will be enabled to closely monitor performance, improve operational efficiency and provide higher standards of service to the shipping and export-import community."
TCS has implemented and customised the application software for port operations including SAP ERP and GIS-based Estate Management and has also set up a state-of-the-art data centre along with campus-wide networking. The GIS-based estate management system will enable Cochin Port Trust to monitor as well maximise returns on their realty holdings.
