Founded in 1981, MONSON is one of Australia’s most experienced global shipping specialists. From humble beginnings in the Port of Fremantle, Western Australia – MONSON now serves all Australian ports from 30+ locations across Australia and Asia.
MONSON’s legacy SaaS-based solution was ageing, unable to scale and a barrier to enabling competitive advantage. MONSON needed an application modernisation overhaul.
Their aim was to build their own end-to-end, in-house shipping agency application from the ground up to replace their current system. By owning the IP instead of leveraging another company’s SaaS product, they would have complete control over the feature set. It also needed to be scalable and allow for rich system integrations and with API connectivity.
“Being custom-made and built on secure modern cloud architecture, a new system would enable MONSON to gain a competitive advantage and expand its customer base and shipping offerings to top-tier commodity traders across the globe” said MONSON CMO, Monique Costantino.
“This would be achievable by being able to easily be configured to the requirements of new clients, ports and ever-changing legislation.”
“We didn’t have the resources within our business to run this project internally, nor did we want to employ any developers full-time per se, so we went to the market looking for a software development specialist to partner with.”
“We narrowed our search to two providers and decided to partner with Teknoverse – a decision we are very glad we made.”
