Legacy Modernization

About the client

The client is the cargo handling division of one of the largest Airlines Group. 

Challenge

The client group carries more than 897, 000 tonnes of freight and mail in a year - equivalent to 1680 Kgs loaded every min. To handle this, a separate Cargo Support division takes care of all support activities to keep the IT system up and running. Owing to the complex nature of the cargo business and unprecedented challenges of cost pressures, the client wanted to implement a new IT Management solution for their cargo operations. Their objective for the transformation was:

  • Achieve economic efficiencies
  • Performance improvements
  • Operational advantages

The major challenges were:

  • Legacy Technology Stack
  • Architecture / Infrastructure improvements
  • Support Processes were not streamlined
  • Different ITSM Tools used in different locations
  • Multiple Technology Stack

Summary

The client collaborated with Coforge to enhance all its cargo interfacing systems. We enhanced and streamlined multiple applications, which support and maintain cargo operations of the airlines. Most of these applications have to be up and running on a 24*7 basis. We used our deep cargo understanding to redefine the applications for the following business areas:

  • Booking
  • Revenue Management
  • Revenue Accounting
  • Warehouse Management
  • Reporting
  • Customs Management
  • Pricing
  • ULD Management
  • Staff Roster Management
  • Schedule Management
  • Cargo Portal

We have been the preferred supplier for the client for all their delivery projects.

Through these end-to-end solutions, we enabled the client to streamline the business process and improve the existing infrastructure and architecture.
