i-Sail – Integrated Supply Chain Lab project initiated by Republic Polytechnic (RP) main aim is to help local logistics companies cut costs as well as improve operational efficiencies.
By partnering with leading hardware and software vendors, this gives companies an opportunity to test the technology before investment and also serves as a learning ground for the polytechnic’s students.
This can be seen when Boon Software brought down a group of potential customers from Indonesia to the lab. “Normally we have to coordinate with existing customers to bring potential customers to their facilities.With i-SAIL, we easily save $50,000 in coordination costs. And it helps shorten the decision making process,” said managing director Boon Suan Chew.
