The Mitsui O.S.K. Lines Group is one of the three major Japanese shipping companies and generates consolidated sales in the order of ¥1,700 billion. In August 2016, a joint study started with Yokohama National University, aimed to explore the practical application of big data to marine transport by using AI. The Mitsui O.S.K. Lines Group also actively utilizes IT for personnel payroll service. It aims to revolutionize “quality of work” by reducing repetitive administrative tasks and focusing on creativity with its AI-embedded, cutting edge technology.
Deeper understanding of employees - Improved efficiency and reformed operation can be extended to other group companies -
MOLIS supports the information systems of the Mitsui O.S.K. Lines group. By adopting AI WORKS as its AI-infused next-generation HR management system suite, MOLIS aims to improve efficiency and reform its operations based on big data. Automatic data entry with image processing and input prediction through operational log data analysis enable users to be released from the work entailed by data inputting. Furthermore, any employees can access and utilize the results of analysis based on machine learning with ease. This ultimately leads to development of the conditions to promote IT and talent data utilization by executives and middle management. Looking ahead, the reformed operation will be extended to the companies of the Mitsui O.S.K. Lines group.
Comment from Mr. Nobunaga Shima, President, MOL Information Systems, Ltd.
“We understand that our decision to go with AI WORKS means our new technological challenges. If we're going to do something anyway, we should do it as soon as possible. We are eager to see how will we benefit from AI WORKS’s tremendous usability, how we can utilize talent data to further our business activities. Once we confirm its effectiveness, we will extend the system implementation to other group companies."
MOLIS decided quickly to adopt its cutting edge technology. Also, it is an important approach to have frontline employees personally experience the day-to-day conveniences of such technology. Thus “AI WORKS Expense” was adopted, which leads employees to easily realize the effectiveness of their new system through automatic and hassle-free settlement of daily expenses. WAP will continue to support the Mitsui O.S.K. Lines group in its efforts to establish and maintain competitive superiority.
