IBS Software is to host an air freight management platform for Lufthansa Cargo, after signing a five-year contract to host and maintain the carrier's iCAP cargo handling application.
After having evaluated the capabilities of hosting service providers on factors such as 'application availability, security regulatory and data privacy', the carrier selected IBS Software's software as a service (SaaS) platform as part of its move to focus on its 'core cargo business without compromising on IT operations,' reported London's Air Cargo News.
As a result of its partnership, Lufthansa Cargo will benefit from IBS Software's 'zero outage' functionality, which enables planned maintenance to be carried out with disruption to Lufthansa Cargo's IT system.
Said IBS Software: 'This unique capability results in operational stability, which is essential to fulfil the customer promise and to provide effective and seamless cargo handling operations around the clock across all time zones without any service disruptions.
'Lufthansa Cargo will also benefit from superior and faster application performance of highly complex cargo business functions and processes. As an example, Lufthansa Cargo processes one million messages per day. Each message will now be processed noticeably faster than before in less than one second on the IBS Software SaaS platform.'
