Implementation

We have implemented Master Terminal at more than 70 terminals around the globe. We know what we’re doing. In fact, our global team of experts are regarded as industry leaders in general cargo, RORO, and container terminal management solutions.

Risks attach to all technology implementations. However, we customize the process for each client, which minimizes the potential for error and disruption.

With our clients, we determine the optimum mix of process improvement and product functionality, and the best implementation pathway and adoption program.

We also build training plans to transfer knowledge and bring super-users up to speed.

This is how we work

Training

Training is the key to a successful implementation. Master Terminal TOS implementations are not only a technical project, but are as much a change management exercise to help your staff learn, adopt, and use new processes and systems. Training is the key enabler of this change. We use a ‘train the trainer’ approach, with two steps to training: super user training and end user training. 

"Working with Jade gave us confidence that the implementation would deliver us the operational efficiencies we were looking to gain in our business. Jade's flexibility and training enabled our staff to adapt quickly to the new technology."
