Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has introduced Kalmar Insight at TOC Europe. Kalmar describes Kalmar Insight as a "ground-breaking" performance management and improvement solution that offers terminals a true real-time view of their productivity and performance.
The solution has been developed based on customer feedback and Kalmar's vast experience from automated terminals. It brings the performance monitoring benefits from automated terminals to manual operations.
Kalmar Insight is a cloud-based software service that combines data from equipment fleet, Terminal Operating System (TOS) and the terminal's Maintenance Management System (MMS). The solution aggregates the data from these sources and displays the most relevant information on a single user interface with simple dashboards.
Kimmo Kallioniemi, Vice President, Service Business Development, Kalmar, comments: "Kalmar Insight helps terminals make sense of big data in order to harness its power. For the first time terminal operators will have a real-time view of their productivity and performance as it is actually occurring.
"Our solution helps terminals to plan ahead and focus on the essentials in their daily business. We have tailored dashboards for different user groups: Senior management, operations management, maintenance management and health and safety officers.
"Kalmar Insight provides for the first time a common platform and a holistic view for all of these user groups, allowing them to take immediate actions to remove possible bottle necks, ensure fleet availability and optimise productivity."
