Portek International has emerged as a leading global specialist provider of solutions to the port industry. Portek's commitment to excellence has led to its breakthrough in the African market. Portek is headquartered in Singapore and operates in three terminals in Indonesia, one in West Java, Bejaia, Malta and two ports in Gabon, Africa.
Portek was using different software for its three main departments - sales, accounting and project. For a huge company like Portek, different software did not allow proper information exchange on transaction and costs. With planned global growth and expansion, the previous system hindered development.
Helping Portek achieve its success has been a solution from IBM and Synergix Technologies, an IBM business partner. The solution includes IBM WebSphere Express, IBM DB2 Express, IBM xSeries and TaskHub from Synergix.
With IBM and Synergix, Portek found everything it was seeking. The project department is now managing entire projects with a clearer view of project activity, commitment and cost. There is no longer information delay among various parties.
