Lufthansa Cargo picks CA solutions
Dubai, January 11, 2012
CA Technologies, an IT management software and solution firm, said Lufthansa Cargo has selected its project and portfolio management solution to boost productivity and facilitate investment decisions.
One of the largest air freight carriers in the world, Lufthansa delivers more than 1.8 million tons of freight and mail to 300 destinations globally.
With 4,500 people employed, Lufthansa Cargo depends on smooth workflows and logistics, not only in the area of transportation, but equally with regard to project management, said a company statement.
In order to meet these challenges, Lufthansa Cargo was looking for a holistic project and portfolio management (PPM) application that would unify and consolidate all project information in one place, it added.
Wolfram Martin, head of Controlling Cross Functions Lufthansa Cargo AG said, “CA Clarity PPM was chosen over other providers particularly on the strength of its plenitude of functionality, its high-quality configuration options, and its flexibility.”
The solution also needed to provide resource management so that Lufthansa Cargo AG could balance capacity with demand, financial management to capture costs and all project transactions, and portfolio management to ensure that strategic investments are aligned to corporate goals, he added.
CA Clarity PPM will replace a number of heterogeneous applications at Lufthansa Cargo AG, said a statement from CA Technologies.
With the implementation of CA Clarity PPM, it will be possible for Lufthansa to record everything, from the initial project specification to the delivered project, in a single system, eliminating the need for application integration and speeding up the entire process significantly, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
