Compass leads the way
As YILPORT Rolls Out the Navis’ Compass Visual Work? ow Management Application, the collaborative tool promises improved planning and greater visibility across ? ve terminals. And, that’s just the beginning. By Joseph Keefe n May, Navis announced that YIL-
PORT Holding Inc. would roll out
Navis’ Compass visual work? ow
Imanagement application to ? ve terminals that already use Navis N4.
The goal is to bring enhanced visibility, communication and collaboration to the planning process across all of the termi- nals. In a nutshell, the Compass applica- tion not only digitizes work? ow, but also standardizes the way terminals work to improve the quality of the planning and tracking process to improve the termi- nal’s ef? ciency.
