Marine Port Authority of Singapore
Get access to the latest vessel information, news and alerts with myMaritime@SG
MPA’s MARINET is a one stop online portal for the shipping community to interact and transact with MPA. The MARINET was previously not optimised to be accessible via mobile devices. With the rising trend in mobile internet connectivity, MPA’s long term plan is to implement a mobile MARINET (myMaritime@SG) app, and to make available all the eservices in MARINET accessible via mobile devices.
To kick off the myMaritime@SG journey, 3 new services will be introduced. They are Notification and Alert Centre (NAC), Mobile Vessel Enquiry (MoVE) and Vessel Alert Service (VAS)
Vintedge implemented the solution with IBM Mobile Foundation, which provides simple and scalable enterprise mobile middleware, deployable on-premise and on-cloud. This mobile infrastructure integrates with popular development tools and accelerates delivery of mobile apps with rich support for front-end development tools, comprehensive security, application lifecycle management and a complete, backend server-side logic engine.
In this project, Vintedge designed and developed an interface that is progressive, intuitive and user-friendly. All data through the app was also synced securely to MPA’s backend servers
The mobile app designed and deployed on iOS and Android platforms. New e-services could also be dynamically added without the need to re-publish the app on the respective app stores.
