Frequently asked questions

If you have other questions, please contact us.

  • Can you give us a demo of your TOS?

    Of course! We are extremely proud of Octopi and are always happy to demo it to potential customers. Email us to schedule a demo.

  • What makes Octopi a better TOS?

    Octopi is much more user-friendly than existing TOS systems in the market. It is also built for the web and hosted by Cetus Labs so that you and your partners can access it from anywhere using your laptop, smartphone, or tablet.

  • Does Octopi offer EDI support?

    Yes. Octopi supports the EDIFACT standard used in the shipping industry. For example, it sends CODECO messages for gate movements and COARRI messages for loading/discharge movements.

  • Why did you call your TOS Octopi?

    Octopi are very smart creatures, known to master mazes, solve problems and even remember past events. Similarly, our TOS is very smart, as it uses Artificial Intelligence techniques to improve your operations. Also, Octopi have lots of tentacles to ensure they have their hands on all of your terminal's operations.
