In a partnership that would accelerate digitalisation in the air cargo industry, IT provider CHAMP Cargosystems has selected Google Cloud to provide an API platform and developer self-service portal option to all its SaaS customers – increasing its range of options and services.
Google Cloud’s full-lifecycle API management platform ‘Apigee’ will allow airlines to easily connect with customers without using any messaging or bespoke interfaces.
“CHAMP is thrilled to partner with an API-first culture company, like Google,” says Lee Booth, Vice President Global Products at CHAMP Cargosystems. “Our customers want solutions that can quickly scale up with their growth and meet their complex localisation needs. By partnering with an industry leader in data and information technologies, we can provide that across the industry.”
CHAMP and its customers can quickly connect to a variety of back-end systems, including in-house and third-party apps, marketplace portals, and more with utilising the platform’s self-service capabilities. It comes with industry standard security implementations for each API and provides secure analysis of how APIs are being consumed by CHAMP’s customers.
This will enable CHAMP to understand future requirements and better serve its clients with further relevant APIs in future.
Furthermore, CHAMP has published its internal low-level APIs via Apigee. This enables developers to take advantage of API orchestration to invent new use cases, all without any implementation in the back-end.
“Google Cloud is pleased to support CHAMP Cargosystems in its efforts to accelerate digital transformation across the air cargo industry,” says Amit Zavery, VP and GM, Platforms at Google Cloud. “Our Apigee API management platform powers CHAMP’s community of customers and partners to deliver critical air cargo shipments by seamlessly connecting backend systems and marketplace portals. The partnership with CHAMP has provided us one more channel to indirectly help those in need.”
