Our ICT approach
The ICT umbrella covers a large area of expertise: our ICT professionals tackle a variety of challenges ranging from installing hardware and applications, to designing complex software, computer networks and information databases, as well as supporting entire systems. Our experts also manage data and make sure this information is accessible to the users.
Katoen Natie has its own global network, connecting the different locations around the world, to speed up the flow of information. Interfacing with external customer systems (such as SAP) is common practice. Microsoft Dynamics NAV® has been chosen as the software environment for creating progressive systems capable of serving large, multi-customer operations and dedicated on-site terminals. In a rapidly changing technological world, we closely monitor the latest technologies in fields such as radio frequency systems, bar coding, hub connections and EDI. Implementing these solutions has proved to be rewarding.
Our main goal is to offer high quality tailor-made solutions. We do not just provide the hardware and software, we solve problems, provide support to industrial processes and ensure that information gets to the right person at the right time. Software development, set-up and maintenance of hardware and networks are done in-house, creating a flexible and cost-efficient operating environment.
