IBS Software has signed a five-year contract with Lufthansa Cargo to host and maintain its iCAP cargo-handling application platform.
The iCAP service is powered by IBS Software’s iCargo management platform, and the contract allows the German airline to focus on its core business without compromising IT operations.
Lufthansa Cargo will benefit from IBS Software’s zero-outage capability for its Software as a Service, with planned maintenance not disrupting the IT system.
Business functions and processes will be sped up, with each of the one million messages Lufthansa Cargo processes a day being sorted in less than a second.
Dr Jochen Gottelmann, chief information officer of Lufthansa Cargo, said, “IBS Software has consistently delivered beyond expectations throughout our relationship that started with the iCAP implementation. They have demonstrated their capability to take on the established leaders in application hosting and offer a true SaaS provisioning that helps us to focus on our core competencies.”
Ashok Rajan, senior vice president and head of cargo airline services at IBS Software, said, “IBS Software is thrilled to sign up Lufthansa Cargo as a SaaS customer, benefitting from our industry-leading iCargo platform hosted in our world-class data centers. Lufthansa Cargo’s selection of IBS Software is testament to our excellent track record of iCAP delivery for the past seven years, and our commitment to consistently deliver value to our customers.”
