The Mindanao Container Terminal continues to upgrade its systems and procedures to improve efficiency and how it serves its clients, partners, and other stakeholders.
On June 1, the terminal implemented the new Computerized Accounting System or (CAS). The adaptation of this new system was approved by the Bureau of Internal Revenue in March.
Prior to that, the terminal’s SAP accounting software went live in 2017 and the Navis implementation happened in November 2019. The adaptation to CAS was the next logical progression to complete the series of updates and improvements.
The CAS upgrade allows for improved efficiency of terminal operations and better productivity.
According to Ms. Ritchel B. Delos Santos of Controllership, since the implementation of the new CAS, they have noted clear improvements in operational visibility, efficiency of equipment utilization in the yard, efficiency with gate processes, event monitoring and inventory management.
She adds that they are expecting the same level of performance and efficiency on the accounting side of operations.
Ms. Delos Santos was quick to add that the MCT personnel adapted quickly and seamlessly into the new system. They were provided detailed training and were given time to transition into the new system before the launch.
Having well-trained and knowledgeable personnel and advanced, top-of-the-line programs and systems will keep MCT current with global standards. It will also allow the terminal to address the needs of its clients and stakeholders with speed, efficiency, and accuracy.
