SINGAPORE / Medianet International-AsiaNet/ -- Unisys Corporation (http://www.unisys.com/) has won the Customer Choice Award for IT Service Provider of the Year at the recently concluded Payload Asia Awards.
The New York-listed firm (NYSE: UIS) got the prize for its Digistics (http://www.unisys.com/digistics), an integrated digital logistics solution that allows air cargo carriers to streamline their freight management and improve operational efficiencies.
The awards, hosted by leading industry publisher Payload Asia (http://www.payloadasia.com/), were presented in Singapore on October 12, 2017.
Determined by popular online voting, the awards spotlight air cargo supply chain companies that have excelled despite a challenging global air freight market, demonstrating agility, innovation and superior strategic planning, as well as having a beneficial impact on market trends.
Digistics features a modern, cloud-based architecture that greatly improves a carrier’s speed to market, while advanced analytics and machine learning technologies analyse past, present, and future data to optimize supply chain operations and route planning. The cloud-based solution allows for seamless integration into existing systems and supports multiple device types--including mobile devices, tablets, touchscreen devices, and PCs--enabling a more agile, digital workspace.
"This award is a testament to our clients as much as it is to us," said Tony Windever, vice president and general manager, Unisys Asia Pacific. "We have seen first-hand the commitment and dedication our clients have toward embracing digital transformation to foundationally transform their business operations, and through our partnership and collaboration, have developed software to meet those most critical business needs."
This acknowledgement is the latest recognition for Unisys cargo capabilities.
