A leading, globally active logistics company set itself the goal of making its business processes more efficient by using and developing state-of-the-art IT. To ensure that all operations run seamlessly, it is essential that the group’s business-critical core applications work faultlessly at all of the company’s locations and can also be quickly restored in the event of a problem. The replication of independent databases at locations with unreliable Internet connections was just one of the major technical challenges in this process. A further aim was to ensure continuous improvement to applications developed in-house and, above all, to standardise them on an international scale.
In Trivadis, we have found an IT partner that is on hand to help us with a pool of skilled specialists. Without them, we as a company would have been unable to maintain such a complicated structure.

To safeguard the operation, maintenance and ongoing development of its applications, the logistics company opted for Managed Services from Trivadis. This three-year service agreement covers the international installation of a core application with around 600 in-house users at various locations, most of which are in Africa. This application is business-critical because it regulates all of the logistic company’s freight handling processes. The agreement also includes the backing-up of seven Oracle database instances’ operations at the group’s East African locations, including database monitoring, in an effort to keep availability at a high level and to allow any disruptions to be responded to quickly. Trivadis is now also available as a development partner for the ongoing optimisation of in-house applications and their international standardisation. What’s more, Trivadis supports the in-house development team with enhancing their knowledge in the field of new technology and suggests ideas for how development processes could be improved. The company is also able to access a pool of technical experts with cutting-edge expertise via Trivadis’s service desk.
