Dubai Government-owned leading marine and offshore services provider Drydocks World is launching a digital transformation project to strengthen its key systems to deliver operational efficiencies and enhanced customer service.

According to the company statement, the transformation project will use IFS Cloud to meet its rising enterprise resource planning and asset management needs.

The transformation project will improve Drydocks World’s core business processes and pave the way for the company’s transition to a digital shipyard. It will enable more efficient operations, improved system integration, and more use of real-time data to promote better decision-making across the company.

Furthermore, the project will improve fundamental technologies such as RFID devices and make use of new technologies such as augmented reality and robotics that can be easily embedded into the IFS solutions.

“This digital transformation program is important to ensure we deliver world-class service. With this new system, our people will be better equipped to do their jobs by working with real-time data, integrative platforms, and improved knowledge sharing that will enable them to focus on the areas of their expertise. We chose IFS for its industry experience and expertise, as well as its best in class product capabilities.”

Mr. Mehmood Khan, Managing Director at IFS Middle East and South Asia, commented that “IFS is honored to be selected by Drydocks World as its digital platform of choice, as it embarks on this ambitious and exciting initiative. We look forward to helping Drydocks World harness our managed cloud services to simplify deployment and reduce total cost of ownership with a more environmentally sustainable, cloud-based solution.”

As per the reports, Drydocks World’s current manufacturing and operating capabilities will be modernized and automated using the IFS solution, which will consolidate the current core systems and processes into a single product based on a shared platform. The asset management and manufacturing modules of the IFS solution will increase complete transparency and automation at Drydocks World shipyards for new builds and repairs.
