Emotions play an important part on how we understand the world around us and learn new things. Donald Norman coined the concept of Emotional Design in his famous book by the same title. In this TOS Talks, we will have a conversation about emotional design applied to a Terminal Operating System, featuring our in-house designers.

Octopi announced that Tropical Shipping has signed a subscription agreement at its St. Croix location. This agreement comes on the heels of the Tropical St. Thomas go-live, making St. Croix the second Tropical Shipping terminal that has signed with Octopi this year.
Despite setbacks due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Navis and Ultraport teams worked together to complete the project on schedule via remote assistance. After the implementation was complete, Punta Arenas has become the first terminal in Chile with a cloud-based TOS and has already seen the benefits of a more up to date system.
Octopi's successful go live at Tropical Shipping’s St. Thomas site was performed with 100% remote assistance. We interviewed Mark Chapman, VP Business Operations at Tropical Shipping St. Thomas to learn more about what made this implementation so successful.
The implementation of Octopi at Tropical St. Thomas has positively impacted customer service and has made employees more efficient to better perform critical tasks. Gate and vessel operations are now more productive and the “equipment control” team has saved an average of 6-8 hours a week with Octopi due to less repetitive communication and data verification, in addition to the introduction of EDI.
