Ian Taylor Peru, a subsidiary of the Chilean Empresas Taylor, has decided to implement the Danish maritime ERP system SERTICA by Logimatic. Ian Taylor Peru is upgrading its fleet which operates in two of the most important ports of Peru, Callao and Paita and SERTICA will play an important role in digitalizing maintenance and procurement.

José Huillca Salas, Head of Fleet at Ian Taylor Perú tells, “We have been in dialogue with several providers and decided to implement SERTICA as I have previous experience working with the system. I have seen how the maintenance and procurement standard can be improved using SERTICA and look forward to implementing the system at Ian Taylor Peru.”

The implementation is taken care of by a combined team from Logimatic’s headquarters in Denmark and the SERTICA Regional Manager based in Chile. This ensures that Ian Taylor gets the support needed in a local time zone and in Spanish. 

José Huillca Salas, Head of Fleet at Ian Taylor says, “With the support from Logimatic, I expect that SERTICA will assist us in improving the maintenance standard significantly. In a short term, I also believe that we can optimize how we procure spare parts for our tugboats, which will save us valuable time and money.”
