Frankfurt-based Lufthansa Cargo has selected IBS Software to host and maintain its cargo handling application platform.
Thiruvananthapuram-based SaaS (software-as-a-Service) solutions provider IBS Software signed a five-year contract with Lufthansa Cargo to take full ownership of the hosting and maintenance of Lufthansa Cargo’s iCAP cargo handling application platform. Lufthansa Cargo is the fully owned subsidiary of the German airline.
“IBS Software has consistently delivered beyond expectations throughout our relationship that started with the iCAP implementation. They have demonstrated their capability to take on the established leaders in application hosting and offer true SaaS provisioning that helps us to focus on our core competencies,” Jochen Göttelmann, Lufthansa Cargo, CIO said in a statement.
IBS says its ‘zero outage’ SaaS offering will help Lufthansa Cargo manage round-the-clock cargo handling operations across all time zones without any service disruptions, the company said.
“IBS Software is thrilled to sign up Lufthansa Cargo as a SaaS customer, benefitting from our industry-leading iCargo platform hosted in our world-class data centres,” Ashok Rajan, SVP and head of Airline Cargo Services, IBS Software said.
The IBS Software SaaS platform will help ease business operations. For example, Lufthansa Cargo claims to processes one million messages per day. Each message will now be processed faster than before in less than one second on the IBS Software SaaS platform.
Recently, Indian IT services firm Tech Mahindra said that it has signed a multi-year contract with aircraft maker Airbus to help the company with design engineering capabilities for its cabin and cargo holds.
