About Us

Port Computer Services (PCS), a subsidiary of the Shipping Association of Jamaica Property Limited, was established in 1981 to provide information technology infrastructure and systems support to the local port community and the wider Caribbean maritime sector. The company now trades under the name ADVANTUM.

Over the last thirty years, the company has evolved to become the leading IT service provider to more than thirty (30) entities in the shipping industry and beyond. ADVANTUM focuses especially on systems development and maintenance, application hosting, hot site (backup) services, internet and network services. ADVANTUM holds the distinction of being the pioneer in the computerization of the Port of Kingston, one of the Hemisphere’s premier and most strategically located transshipment ports.

Given its thrust, ADVANTUM has revolutionized its products and services to meet the needs of a broader clientele which resides outside of the shipping industry.

ADVANTUM can state unreservedly that we have one of the most advanced systems for the exchange of information in the Port of Kingston. Our well-equipped data centre is bolstered by dual off site back up. ADVANTUM provides 99.9% system availability to our customers who operate in a 24x7 environment.

ADVANTUM has a culture of being creative and innovative, manifested through its technical staff, which consists of well-trained and experienced programmers/software engineers, AS400 operators, business & system analysts, network administrators, project managers and Microsoft Dynamics GP consultants.
