Novire Tech­nolo­gies Pvt Ltd is en­gaged in the busi­ness of de­vel­op­ing and pro­vid­ing smart IT so­lu­tions,that are ba­si­cally con­flu­ence of the 4 ma­jor busi­ness trends - Mo­bile Tech­nolo­gies, Cloud Com­put­ing, Big Data and In­ter­net of Things, to the lo­gis­tics in­dus­try. Founded in 2004 by Hiten Varia and Suresh Sachdev, Novire has also for­ayed into in­ter­na­tional mar­ket with its first op­er­a­tions in Thai­land. En­cour­aged by the grow­ing de­mand for its con­sis­tently de­vel­op­ing newer tech­nolo­gies, NovireTech­nolo­gies has re­cently floated 2 new sep­a­rate units – Au­to­plant, and ITBS - Truck ka Load.

Novire Tech­nolo­gies caters to over 200 cus­tomers in var­i­ous in­dus­trial sec­tors. These com­pa­nies de­rive sig­nif­i­cant ben­e­fits like re­duc­tion in cost by 5 -10 %, in­crease in on-time de­liv­er­ies by 20%, in­crease in as­set util­i­sa­tion, and im­prove­ment in cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion level by de­ploy­ing smart IT so­lu­tions in the lo­gis­tic sec­tor.

Novire, in as­so­ci­a­tion with ‘Au­to­plant’ and ‘ITBS-Truck ka Load’, or­gan­ised in Mum­bai re­cently its an­nual cus­tomer meet ti­tled `Ig­nite 2017’ and con­fer­ence With the theme: ‘Lo­gis­tic 4.0: Pre­par­ing for the New In­dus­trial Rev­o­lu­tion.’ More than 200 in­dus­try lead­ers, de­ci­sion mak­ers and IT Heads from lead­ing com­pa­nies par­tic­i­pated. The con­fer­ence de­bated and dis­cussed how the emerg­ing tech­nolo­gies like mo­bile, cloud com­put­ing, Big Data and IoT are trans­form­ing lo­gis­tics and sup­ply chain ser­vices world­wide. In­dus­try vet­er­ans dis­cussed why a strong lo­gis­tics sec­tor is a pre-req­ui­site for the suc­cess of the In­dian in­dus­try and how tech­nol­ogy adop­tion is at the core of bring­ing the nec­es­sary trans­for­ma­tion in lo­gis­tics.

The con­fer­ence kick-started with the key­note ses­sion by V S Girish, Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor, SCM PRO, and Hiten Varia, Chair­man, Novire Group. On the cen­tral theme of Lo­gis­tics 4.0, Varia said, “Man­u­fac­tur­ing com­pa­nies are mov­ing into “Smart fac­tory” mod­els (in­dus­try 4.0), which leads to man­u­fac­tur­ing and ware­house units that rely more on the work done by machines. These machines plug into IoT net­works to com­mu­ni­cate with each other, and in the process al­low us to ac­cess all as­pects of the man­u­fac­tur­ing/lo­gis­tics chains. Lo­gis­tics 4.0 is the new par­a­digm of hu­man-ma­chine in­ter­ac­tion in lo­gis­tics that is be­ing im­ple­mented by man­u­fac­tur­ers to sup­port their in­dus­try 4.0 trends.”

Girish said, “Due to the in­creas­ing use of cy­ber phys­i­cal sys­tems and IoT net­works, Big Data analysis for hu­man-ma­chine in­ter­ac­tions has never been this im­por­tant. The cur­rent sce­nario of a seg­mented ap­proach to lo­gis­tics is in­ef­fec­tive and needs to be re­aligned with the trends that are cur­rently be­ing fol­lowed.”

Busi­ness in­no­va­tion

The par­tic­i­pat­ing Novire cus­tomers in the con­fer­ence shared their best prac­tices and how they were driv­ing in­no­va­tion in sup­ply chain with the use of smart IT so­lu­tions.

Arun At­tri, CIO, Won­der Ce­ment, said his com­pany achieved in-plant au­to­ma­tion and is ac­cru­ing sig­nif­i­cant ben­e­fits from it. Ab­hishek Singh of Akzo No­bel said his com­pany has elim­i­nated bot­tle­necks and op­ti­mised pro­cesses by im­ple­ment­ing mo­bile tech­nol­ogy in sup­ply chain.

Some of the early adopters of Lo­gis­tics 4.0, have relooked at their end- to- end pro­cesses and also adopted Novire-Auto plant to plug the gaps in lo­gis­tics and sup­ply chain. V V Benu­gopal, CEO Pan­ther Trans­freight Lim­ited, (part of JSPL Group) and It­taya Siri­va­sukarn, CEO OF INSEE Dig­i­tal Com­pany Ltd, (Part of Siam City Ce­ment Group, Thai­land) had part­nered with Novire-Au­to­plant to im­ple­ment their E2E So­lu­tion.

Shi­dan Mur­phy, An­goss and Mru­gank Parikh, Byte Prophecy, dis­cussed how Big Data can be lever­aged to en­hance busi­ness ef­fi­cien­cies and also pre­sented real time cases il­lus­trat­ing the use of Big Data. Swap­nil Bagul, CTO of Writer Safe­guard Pvt. Ltd, shared his com­pany’s achieve­ment af­ter im­ple­ment­ing IoT so­lu­tion for the cash vans and ATMs.
