CargoSmart Wins a TIBCO Trailblazer “Innovator” Award
Blog: The Tibco Blog
TIBCO Trailblazer Awards recognize individuals and companies who are accomplishing substantial business results using TIBCO technology. At TIBCO NOW 2016, CargoSmart received this year’s TIBCO Trailblazer Innovator Award honoring a collaborative company focused on accelerating IT innovation across its business to provide remarkable product and service delivery to customers.
CargoSmart, a provider of global shipment management software, was facing an expanding and volatile industry, requiring it to use big data to gain necessary competitive advantage. Integrating the powerful capabilities of TIBCO BusinessEvents, TIBCO Enterprise Message Service, and TIBCO Spotfire to process and simplify complex data such as live sea traffic conditions, vessel speed, total transit times, and metrics from multiple carriers, CargoSmart significantly enhanced its customers’ decision-making capabilities. Implementation of TIBCO technology resulted in a 70% reduction in the number of exceptions, a dramatic 400% increase in the number of shipping vessels monitored, and a 3.5% reduction in fuel consumption by its carrier customers.
Accepting the award, presented by TIBCO CEO Murray Rode, CargoSmart B2B Group Senior Manager Ralph Ho said, “TIBCO’s agile technology allows CargoSmart to facilitate, or to co-design with customers, custom analyses and dashboards. It’s shortening time to market and also allowing us to deliver exactly what customers need to meet their business objectives. Winning a TIBCO Trailblazer award is recognition that proves CargoSmart is moving in the right direction. We built an application and the market has recognized our success. We will continue to leverage big data analytics for decision-making and creating business opportunities.”
As a Trailblazer Award winner, CargoSmart will become a featured TIBCO reference customer with a new video testimonial and case study, both featuring Ralph Ho. Watch the CargoSmart video vignette.
