We are nearly there. UK airports are already bustling with the estimated 6 million of us that will spend Christmas abroad and the pressure is on to ensure that the second busiest season for the industry goes without a hitch.

Being part of that operation can be stressful. Making sure you have the right person in the right place at the right time with the right training without fail, can be a logistical nightmare.

Just in time for Christmas, AIRDAT delivers another present to our customers. A completely new Training Management System. With over 200 new features, our team spent hours looking at every detail of the old system to see if, and how, it could be improved. Our developers sat in on numerous training sessions, evaluating where time could be saved from registration, to instruction, assessment, permit issue and feedback, and the results of the adjustments are overwhelming.

Because registration has been simplified and we have minimised the information required, the validation sequence for assessments has been shortened, the test system has been streamlined and there is no need to run multiple systems for photo and permit generation, trainers are saving a huge amount of time on the administrative aspects of delivering out training.

In addition, when planning and organising courses, the new system automatically calculates which rooms and which trainers can be utilised (no more thumbing through different calendars) and it helps those looking to book a course by filtering and organising bookings, simplifying the process and meaning company managers can sort out their requirements in a fraction of the time.

So for Christmas 2014 – AIRDAT’s gift to you – time! What more could you ask for?
