Zurich, 8 September 2020 – Cargologic, the leading ground handling service provider in Switzerland, has extended its long-term partnership with CHAMP through a new ten-year agreement.
Cargologic has been operating CHAMP’s Cargospot Handling solution on an in-house licensed basis for over 13 years. Through the new agreement, the company will adopt CHAMP’s Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model, transitioning its current system to a fully managed service, hosted from CHAMP’s state-of-the-art data centers.
Cargologic’s SaaS migration will enable them to take advantage of additional Cargospot system features, together with CHAMP’s smart technology solutions, such as the Cargospot Mobile App, ergonomically designed to transform and enhance the physical cargo handling processes.
“I was part of the first Cargospot implementation team and now look forward to this next step.” says Jürg Zimmermann, Executive Vice President Operations at Cargologic. “Cargospot has been the cornerstone of our operations for over a decade and has helped us to streamline our business processes. We are pleased to extend our partnership and are eager to harness the added potential of CHAMP’s SaaS platform.”
“I am extremely pleased that CHAMP and Cargologic are able to continue their strong partnership,” says Nicholas Xenocostas, Vice President Commercial and Customer Engagement at CHAMP Cargosystems. “We are delighted that we will be supporting this great ground handler for at least another decade, delivering the efficiency gains of a SaaS offering, whilst further transforming Cargologic’s operations through the introduction of advanced new technologies and solutions.”
To better enable its customer community to meet and adapt to changing business demands, CHAMP’s Cargospot solution continues to evolve through the introduction of new interoperable technologies, such as APIs, portals and IoT based applications.
