Dubai Taxi Corp deploys DSI solutions
Dubai, November 20, 2012
Dubai Taxi Corporation (DTC), part of the emirate's Roads & Transport Authority, has signed up Data Systems International (DSI) to help improve inventory accuracy and reduce operational costs across its fleet of 3,500 vehicles.
A global leader in enterprise mobility, DSI will deploy its flagship mobile application development platform, dcLINK, for inventory and fixed asset management in the transport company.
The dcLINK seamlessly integrates to any back-end system and features an integrated development environment that accelerates the development and deployment of mobile applications by technical and non-technical personnel alike.
Using these capabilities, DTC will expand its use of dcLINK to track the status and condition of fixed assets, ensuring more accurate and effective enterprise asset management, said a senior official.
“The seamless integration into Oracle JD Edwards ERP was a critical factor in our decision to select DSI and dcLINK,” explained Mansoor Al Falasi, the director of Resources & Support Department in DTC.
“We looked at other vendors, but DSI’s ability to help transform the way we conduct business with their robust mobile application development platform and industry-proven business process applications was impressive,” he added.
The Dubai group will deploy DSI’s on-premise mobility applications for inventory and fixed asset management with a mix of handheld devices and fixed work stations for workers to track more than 34,000 parts per day from receipt to repair in real time.
Al Falasi said, “We quickly recognised that the utilisation of a single mobile platform and IDE allows us to quickly manage change, extend automation to other processes and even create new applications in other areas of the business, both on-premise and out in the field."
"DSI’s mobility solution enables us to be proactive in identifying other areas in our organisation, and potentially across RTA, where benefits could be achieved from effective automation. DSI’s mobile technology is scalable and future proofs our IT investment," he added.
Rakesh Harji, EMEA vice president of sales said, "DSI has a proud 33-year history of understanding our customers’ needs and working with them to transform the way they conduct their businesses to meet the needs of the twenty-first century organisation."
"The ability of our customers to show rapid ROI from DSI’s mobility solutions is a source of deep satisfaction in our organisation," he added.
Headquartered in Kansas City (US), DSI is an industry pioneer in enterprise mobility with operations around the world.-TradeArabia News Service
