RTS | Compass
RTS Compass allocate your ships optimally to sailings with the objective of maximizing revenue while satisfying demand and constraints through state of the art demand forecasting and optimization techniques.
The solution allows schedulers an intuitive way of viewing, modifying and publishing schedules and performing what-if analysis. The solution is optimized for use by Cruise Ferries that carry both passenger and freight.
The SaaS cloud option is best suited for rapid deployment, immediate benefit, minimal implementation effort and low ongoing maintenance costs
RTS offers an on-premise option for a tighter integration with business processes and other on-premise systems. The on-premise option is also better suited for a higher degree of customization.
Generates demand forecasts from historical bookings using seasonality components for both passenger and freight components to ensure that ships that can satisfy demand are assigned to sailings.
Maximizes profitability of the sailing schedule while honoring operational constraints including port times, docking times, crew rest period, co-docking constraints, fueling restrictions using advanced business rules engine and sophisticated optimization algorithms
Enhances productivity by viewing, building, editing, and manipulating schedules using an intuitive and interactive schedule management interface
Identifies revenue bottlenecks including sailings with low load, capacities unable to satisfy demand, etc. by performing what-if simulations using the Schedule Evaluation module
Provides critical business insight into ferry schedule performance through Operational reports including trip statistics at various levels (total trips, trips by ship on daily, weekly, monthly and yearly levels) and Planning reports including ship utilization (comparison of demand vs capacity on daily, weekly, monthly and yearly levels)
Scheduling sailings by considering demand forecasts and deploying network level optimization techniques while honoring operational constraints can significantly boost the bottom line.
