Kale’s CAPELLA Now Available On Windows Azure
By Anuja Abraham
CAPELLA- an enterprise wide web-based CFS/ICD management system is now on cloud and developed on Microsoft Windows Azure platform. CAPELLA is currently being used by many global CFS’s and ICD’s successfully for streamlining their container operations. Continental Warehousing Corporation (Nhava Seva) Limited is the first CAPELLA client to go live on Azure Platform.
Kale’s CFS Management System- CAPELLA is an enterprise-wide, robust, web-based system that automates the dis-organised CFS/ICD processes to give the operator instant access to information and provides the management with complete visibility of their business at all times. CAPELLA can be deployed both as licensed software and as a SaaS based application.
Mr. Amruthesh Reddy Chedimala- IT Manager, Continental Warehousing Corporation (Nhava Seva) Limited said “Our operations were semi-automated relying on legacy system which proved to be very expensive including the y-o-y maintenance costs. We required a feature rich, integrated and scalable solution for both our local and international needs. CAPELLA offers expansive features for CFS operations right from terminal operation, container inventory, yard management, back to town Processes and other features with a comprehensive reporting tool. Moreover with an MS Windows Azure platform the deployment time was fast and we no more have to bear costs on infrastructure, maintenance or administration. We have successfully implemented CAPELLA at 2 of our CFS locations at Chennai – Madhavaram and Redhills. Also, the implementation of the system is in progress at the ICD of our group company in Hyderabad.”
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Vineet Malhotra – SVP, Kale Logistics Solutions said, “CAPELLA incorporates industry best-practices for global CFS/ ICD operations. It provides automation, quality of data exchange and decision support in compliance with all local & international trade regulations. In recent years we have seen a greater adoption of a system like CAPELLA in global CFS operations as it effectively addresses the challenge of revenue leakages & container tracking while offering deployment flexibility.”
