Ignify CXO Breakfast Event with the CIO of the Port of Long Beach
Are you looking to make some high-profile business contacts while learning crucial insights from one of the leaders of the Southern California business and technology communities? Be sure to join Ignify for the CXO Breakfast Event on May 8th, at the Renaissance Long Beach Hotel.
The CXO Breakfast Series initiated by Ignify features prominent information and technology officers every quarter who share details on the solutions they have implemented for their companies, and the tangible benefits they have received from their decisions. Attendees at these events receive expert advice on what to avoid and what to do, which solutions are effective and which ones aren’t, and other key information from both business and technology standpoints.
One of the world’s premier seaports, the Port of Long Beach provides over 316,000 jobs in Southern California and 1.4 million jobs throughout the United States, and handles over $140 billion worth of products, natural resources, and provisions that traverse through the harbor annually. The Port of Long Beach also strives to be an active steward of the environment by directing programs that seek to reduce or eliminate negative environmental impacts.
With such a high volume of vessels and cargo to track, the business software previously responsible for helping the Port of Long Beach monitor their operations required the manual processing of shipping documents, vessel information, and billing, which created a massive amount of paperwork. This system not only slowed processing efficiency, it also made it difficult to get a clear view of management information for decision making.
Microsoft Dynamics AX proved to be the solution that fulfilled the critical IT requirements the Port sought, eliminating time-consuming practices and improving operational efficiency by automating the invoicing and accounts receivable processes; increasing oversight of revenue recognition and analytical reporting systems; enhancing productivity; and providing complete visibility of Port processes.
This event will be an excellent opportunity to hear specifically how the Port utilizes Microsoft Dynamics AX software, and the significant advantages provided by this system and the Port’s IT infrastructure provides business operations. You can also share your solution experiences with other IT and business executives, get feedback on any IT issues or questions that you may have, and exchange ideas on how to better position your business for success.
