MMC Chooses Ramco Systems to Digitally Transform Five Ports in Malaysia's Single Largest Port Transformation Programme

MMC Group announced that it has embarked on a major digital transformation of five ports, in partnership with global software solutions leader, Ramco Systems Limited.  


The digital transformation will consolidate and standardise processes of MMC’s ports, which include Pelabuhan Tanjung Pelepas Sdn Bhd, Johor Port Berhad, Northport (Malaysia) Bhd, Penang Port Sdn Bhd and Tanjung Bruas Port Sdn Bhd. This technological transformation programme will propel Malaysia to the forefront of global best-in-class ports – which plays a crucial role in mitigating supply chain challenges, including recent disruptions due to COVID-19. The digital transformation will enable all the ports under MMC to consolidate various business support functions (namely Finance, Human Resource, Enterprise Asset Management, Supply Chain Management and Logistics Management) into a single integrated Enterprise Resource Planning system.


Over 8,000 MMC employees across the ports will be plugged into the platform on their computers/mobile devices which now eliminates duplication errors and other bottlenecks, allowing efficient business processes and enhanced data visibility.


The system will also include smart features such as Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, which will provide employees with greater insight as well as predictive alerts and chatbots which can reduce human error and save time. This will lay the foundation for MMC’s broader strategy to enhance business experience to its customers and suppliers.


“The COVID-19 pandemic has pushed several trends into the spotlight, such as e-commerce and strengthening the supply chain. More than ever, we see the importance of ensuring our ports remain efficient and capable of quick turnaround and we had been looking for a partner which could provide a scalable solution for all our ports.


The implementation of a common system and integrated technology platform will further maximise synergies and allow all our ports to share expertise and benefit from economies of scale. We aim to leverage on technology as a key differentiator in order to gain competitive edge and add value to our stakeholders,” said Dato’ Sri Che Khalib Mohamad Noh, Group Managing Director MMC Corporation Berhad.
