NSW Ports Live Announcement: Streamlining Ship-to-Shore ISGOTT Processes with Platform8

This case study highlights the successful implementation of Platform8 and our partners Smartflow’s digital solution for ship-to-shore ISGOTT (International Safety Guide for Oil Tankers and Terminals) at NSW Ports. As an international standard, ISGOTT ensures safe and efficient operations within the maritime industry.

The adoption of Platform8’s solution presents a transformative opportunity for all ports and terminal operators across Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) to streamline their processes and achieve a rapid return on investment (ROI).

The Problem: Inefficiencies and Compliance Challenges 

The existing bespoke legacy tech solution for ship-to-shore ISGOTT processes at NSW Ports relied on outdated communication methods, such as email and PDF document sharing. This resulted in inefficiencies, coordination challenges, and a lack of real-time visibility into operations. Moreover, compliance with ISGOTT guidelines became increasingly demanding, necessitating a more robust and efficient solution.

The Solution: Digital ISGOTT Compliances 

Platform8’s digital platform provides an innovative solution for ensuring ISGOTT compliance and streamlining ship-to-shore processes. By leveraging partner Smartflow Document Flow, the platform offers a centralised view of operations and facilitates efficient communication among key stakeholders, including vessels, port authorities, ports, and terminals. This transformative solution not only enhances safety and operational efficiency but also simplifies compliance with the international ISGOTT standard.

Working with Platform8 and Smartflow has been a seamless experience. Their solutions have proven to be efficient and reliable. We are impressed with the ease of implementation and the value they bring to our operations. We are excited to explore more of their solutions across our platform.”
