Logistics BusinessJLT VERSO Series validated as ‘Navis Ready’

JLT Mobile Computers, the developer of reliable computing solutions for demanding environments, has announced that its VERSO Series of high-performance vehicle-mounted terminals (VMTs) has passed Navis Ready Validation for the latest version of the Navis N4 terminal operating system (TOS). The validation reinforces the fact that the JLT VERSO Series – specifically developed for use in the harshest conditions – is the ideal mobile IT platform for highly demanding port operations the world over.

Navis is a premier brand from Kaleris for best-in-class port, terminal, carrier and vessel solutions. Kaleris, the provider of cloud-based supply chain execution and visibility technology solutions, offers a global platform that unlocks operating data, connects workflows and increases visibility to improve the entire shipment lifecycle. Navis brand technology plays a key role by linking the busiest nodes in the global supply chain to the Kaleris platform.

This revalidation announcement sees a continuation of JLT’s long-term partnership with the Navis Ready Program that began in 2015 and was reinforced in 2019, when JLT became the first hardware provider to ensure that its rugged computers for the port segment would be validated for use with major upcoming Navis N4 TOS releases for the following five years. This gives customers an extra level of security and confidence when purchasing JLT terminals for their Navis system.

According to the Navis report: “This [validation] ensures customers can buy and engage with vendors with confidence knowing that the majority of the integration work has been completed. The information provided in the Navis Ready Validation report helps customers assess the level of integration achieved and what is possible with a vendor.”

As an experienced supplier of rugged IT solutions for the port environment, JLT has also committed significant resources to those requiring help and support in the port sector, including the popular Port Guide: Five ways to make IT your port’s hero, not its headache, which can be downloaded in English or Spanish for free.
