February 5, 2013 Manila, Philippines – CTSI Logistics, a leading global logistics company has tapped dB Wizards to provide IT training and certification services to its IT Team. Aligning with the company’s objectives to improve on its IT internal processes, the members of the IT team went through a series of trainings on Microsoft Visual Studio 2010, SharePoint 2010 and Exchange 2010.
Currently, most of CTSI Logistics’ applications are running on Microsoft SQL Server and those applications interface with legacy systems, some running on non-Microsoft platforms. The company supports a wide range of different systems and platforms without any standard development tool and methodology. Different stations or affiliates have their own standards. Another concern was the lack of expertise on each system and application. The company ultimately realized that they had to standardize on tools that would allow them to have a more efficient means of developing their own systems, thus the requirement to have the members of their team trained and certified on the Microsoft Platform.
“We would like to provide not only better service but also value-added services to our stations and affiliates which we support. They deserve the best and it’s only appropriate that their IT requirements are handled by trained and certified team members” said Efren Bernardino, IT Manager of CTSI Logistics. “Our stations and affiliates are more at ease knowing that they have the best people working with them”, continued Bernardino.
dB Wizards delivered trainings using Microsoft Official Learning Products (MOLP), a curriculum developed by Microsoft for its various products, conducted by Microsoft Certified Trainers (MCT) with real-world experience in actual projects. dB Wizards’ MCTs are exposed to actual projects with customers through the Company’s consulting services that delivers solutions on Business Intelligence, Portals and Collaboration, Enterprise Resource Planning, Custom Development among others. CTSI Logistics took their certification as well right after the training to validate the knowledge and skills gained by the participants.
“We have trained with other training centers but based on our assessment, dB Wizards provides more value for our training investment because we have access to excellent facilities, trainings were delivered superbly by their trainers and they have very good after sales support. They have excellent commitment on our training schedules as well”, continued Bernardino.
CTSI Logistics is now able to shorten development time of new modules or features in their current IT projects using the same number of manpower which allowed them to save on costs. The Company is also able to provide innovative solutions that minimize, if not eliminate the need to enhance their existing system that has to be integrated with CTSI’s. This minimizes additional cost of implementation.
“We are proud to be the Partner of Choice of CTSI Logistics. Our main drive is to provide organizational capabilities to our customers by delivering excellent training services complimented by real world cases,” said Pocholo Reyes, Managing Director of dB Wizards. “With our R&D team, we are able to constantly develop material to enhance our offerings, be first to market with new technologies, in response to our customers’ needs.”
CTSI Logistics’ Corporate IT team service not only its stations located in other countries, but also affiliated companies in a wide range of industries including hotels, manufacturing, distribution, healthcare and airlines.
