StocExpo 2016: Implico to Preview New OpenTAS Release
Focus also on iGOS cloud solution for downstream process automation
How can efficiency be improved for oil product storage and distribution? Answers will be provided by Implico at StocExpo 2016, where the company will be offering a sneak peek at key features from its new software. The new release of the terminal automation system for tank farms and refineries is currently still in development, with a market launch expected at the end of the year. Compared to previous versions, the new software will offer expanded functionality, improved performance, support for the latest technologies and usability optimizations. Some of the highlights that users can look forward to include a highly flexible reporting system and especially user-friendly truck handling in the form of the new TOC (Truck Operations Cockpit) module.
The new terminal automation system release will be available as on-premises software and as a cloud service. Full details of this option will be available from the Implico stand. With iGOS (Implico Global Operation Services), tank farm operators can migrate their entire supply chain to the cloud. Low operating costs, better data quality, leaner structures and greater flexibility for adapting the product to customer needs are just some of the advantages offered by iGOS.
Together with Dimitris Pagonis, Head of Sales OpenTAS at Implico, Rompetrol Downstream Warehouse Manager Marcel Dobrita will be speaking as part of the official conference program on the first day of the show, with a talk entitled “Optimizing end-to-end delivery processes through automation.” Rompetrol is currently rolling out OpenTAS to its Petromidia refinery – Romania’s largest refinery – and six tank farms.
