Empowering Adani Ports with a unified equipment inspection system

Adani EIS Case Study Ranosys

“Ranosys transformed Adani Ports’ manual equipment inspection and maintenance (EIS) process with a comprehensive digital solution that facilitates compliance and automated checks.” 

Accounting for almost one-fourth of the cargo movement in India, Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone Limited (APSEZ) is the largest commercial ports operator in the country. It boasts a strong presence of 13 domestic ports in seven maritime states of Gujarat, Maharashtra, Goa, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, and Odisha and is responsible for connecting remote shores to mainland activities. The port facilities are well-equipped with world-class cargo-handling infrastructure and are capable of handling the largest vessels at Indian shores. With the ability to handle 500,000 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) annually, the Adani logistics business is growing at a rapid pace.

While the management has a separate maintenance department that takes care of inspection and quality control of various heavy equipments involved, the following challenges had started arising with increased workload:

  • Difficulty in ensuring inspection of each type of equipment before their allocation for specific tasks.
  • Increased safety risk due to ambiguous mechanisms of quality control and check
  • Noticeable delays in timely maintenance and service of equipment
  • Lack of integrated process that could facilitate real-time monitoring and control by a supervisor and management
  • No uniformity between the quality control process, leading to lack of visibility on accepted standards and best practices.


The main objective of the solution was to ensure timely maintenance of various equipment and real time data driven processes for quality control.  The solution would streamline the entire inspection process and bring in much-needed transparency. Moreover, this step would also complement the organisations’ overall goal of achieving complete digital transformation and automating routine tasks with smart tools.

The Result

Ranosys undertook the responsibility of understanding the vision of APSEZ with respect to its Equipment Inspection System (EIS) and the roadblocks they were facing in achieving it. After a thorough assessment and consultation, we developed an EIS digital solution using OutSystems that would replace their legacy process. Some of its key features are -

  • Unified solution with separate roles for every stakeholder - operators, supervisors, executives - to ensure seamless coordination and dispatch of relevant information at all levels.
  • Digitize process that inspects and verifies every type of equipment before it is allocated to particular tasks.
  • A centralized repository of all the essential details including quality check standards and routine checklists to ensure transparency.
  • Complete check on the maintenance routine and health of all the equipment.


Powered by OutSystems , the digital solution of EIS served as a solid foundation for the digital transformation journey of APSEZ.

Owing to the smart insights and data-driven reports supported by OutSystems, Adani Ports teams can predict the need for maintenance services.

An automated checklist ensures that only verified equipment is allotted for tasks, resulting in lesser delays and more efficient output.

The EIS solution has an intuitive UI/UX that simplifies and fastens the entire equipment inspection process.

With the implementation of EIS solution, the overall health and lifespan of equipment have improved considerably.

The EIS solution is built on OutSystem’s flexible architecture and is customizable as per the needs of any logistics and transportation organization.
