Introducing AIRDAT VISA, our mobile smartphone app on Android and iOS. The worlds leading aviation training management system, now in your pocket.
Easy to use
When things are slow and difficult to understand people tend not to use them. VISA keeps things simple and clear for users. This means zero training required and people are up and running in no time.
Stale information is next to useless. AIRDAT VISA links via an API with the AIRDAT Passport Training Management system. The moment an update is made (training, points, bookings, profile, notes) - VISA is updated.
Keeping track of existing training validity, managing bookings for future courses and launching eLearning used to mean a trip to the office for a desktop. Save yourself the leg work. Do all of this via VISA in a few clicks.
Whether its drivers, contractors, managers or baggage loaders, they all need valid qualifications to carry out their tasks. Scan their secure QR code and see their live qualifications data with a full profile.
With VISA you can consolidate your training permits down to a single card, or even allow staff to use their mobile as their permit. No need to carry and reference several documents & expiry dates - just one app.
Reference existing penalty data and apply new points. Take photos, signatures and other evidence, then apply the associated scheme and penalty that instantly updates their Passport profile and issues out comms.
London Gatwick Airport required a solution that would allow their EHS and Ops teams to be able to audit personnel whilst out and about, and if necessary, review and apply penalty points. They also require a solution that would bring benefits to the stakeholders, to promote use of the service.
The airport community is made up of around 35,000 people and 2,500 companies all performing various tasks around the campus. The Gatwick team makes up around 3,000 of that total number.
AIRDAT VISA was developed in partnership with the airport, connecting the training data held in AIRDAT Passport to a new mobile smartphone application, available on both Apple and Android devices.
The airport teams are now able to audit whilst on site, bringing greater levels of compliance, assurance and safety to the campus. In addition, they are also able to review points offence history and authorised users can issue new points using just their mobile device. For Stakeholders, there is no need for multiple permits and their full training history can be held on their mobile device. Training can be booked and eLearning launched, whilst notifications keep people up to date with any re-training that may be required. An ITN video production that covers this case study can be found here.
