The ARC Advisory Group has named German downstream IT solutions provider Implico Group as the market leader for terminal automation systems in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) in its most recent market study.
According to the ARC Study 2020, Implico is also one of the top three providers of terminal automation services in the world. Implico was first acknowledged as a leading provider in EMEA in 2010.
The Implico Group major terminal management system is OpenTAS, a comprehensive package for automating processes in bulk liquid storage facilities. It also has QINO, developed by its Dutch subsidiary, Brainum. The systems support all means of transport and are suitable for tank farms of all sizes. Implico plans to expand the cloud functionalities of these systems and add web-based micro-services that address key business challenges, embedded in a future-proof framework called the Supply Chain United (SCU).
‘We are very pleased with the Implico Group’s prominent position in the ARC Study 2020. We work hard to ensure that our solutions and services offer our customers decisive business benefits and lasting value – today as well as tomorrow. Also, we constantly push forward to expand our global presence and footprint. In this regard, we are sure that our recently formed partnerships will help us to not only strengthen our market leadership in EMEA, but also gain an even stronger foothold in other key regions of the world,’ says CEO Tim Hoffmeister.
