"With NetSuite, all our information is standardised and available in one place. Now I can know in real-time what is going on in every single port."
Tratamiento Ecológico de Residuos (TRAER)
NetSuite has given TRAER much greater visibility and control over its collection, recycling and environmentally responsible disposal of fuel sludge waste and garbage collected from cargo ships and cruise vessels.
Replacing Excel in early 2011, NetSuite enables TRAER to seamlessly manage waste operations at 12 ports in Mexico and one in Argentina.
Time to track and report on operations reduced from as much as a week with previous Excel processes to real-time, on-demand.
TRAER has virtually eliminated unproductive manual data management work with a single, integrated cloud solution to handle end-to-end business processes.
The B lab certified Corporation has recycled and responsibly disposed of 40,000 tons of fuel sludge waste and 5,000 tons of trash in the past four years; previously responsible waste management was difficult to be traced.
Free and discounted licencing through the NetSuite.org corporate citizenship programme helps this social enterprise channel resources into its environmental business.
NetSuite powers end-to-end sales orders, invoicing and management with 130 customers, including Maersk, MSC, Norwegian Cruise Lines, Royal Caribbean and Disney Cruise Lines.
NetSuite provides a scalable platform for TRAER's plans to grow the business 60 percent in the near term, to service 800 ships a year in Mexico.
Single, authoritative data source on operations aids compliance with Mexican environmental regulations and International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships, MARPOL 73/78.
Founded in 2004, TRAER struggled with time-consuming, error-prone manual tasks in Excel to track complex operations and high materials volume at 13 ports.
Paper-based invoicing to customers slowed cash flow and introduced high administrative overhead.
Company didn't want an IT-heavy environment of on-premise software and servers to manage business processes.
After comparison against SAP, TRAER selected NetSuite for greater cloud maturity, ease of use and depth of functionality.
On-time, on-budget implementation in early 2011 with training by NetSuite Solution Provider partner NetSoft in Mexico City accelerated time to value.
Acceptance into the NetSuite.org corporate citizenship programme frees resources to improve operations in a spirit of environmental sustainability.
