Covid-19: INFORM Releases Tools to Keep Aviation Staff Safe

: Aug 19, 2020 - : 11:41 pm

INFORM, a global provider of advanced optimization solutions for airlines, airports and ground handlers, is offering software-based solutions designed to quickly identify workers potentially affected by COVID-19.

The solutions are part of a series of tools designed to support companies during the pandemic. The solutions work with the company’s GroundStar product, GS RealTime. Companies can extend their GS RealTime functionality to enable contact tracing by adding the company;s new GS BIS Contact Tracer web application and/or GS BIS Contact Tracing report.

By using GS RealTime’s historical staff allocation data, it is possible to determine which staff worked with whom, in which team, at what times, and in which locations. Equipped with this data, the GS BIS contact tracer’s functionality can visualize an infected person’s history of contacts. This can be displayed as an on-demand report using the GS BIS Report solution, or in a standalone web application, both to facilitate the implementation of a staff quarantine plan.

“Resource and staff planning has always been key to a successful operation,” said Uschi Schulte-Sasse, Senior Vice President Aviation at INFORM. “The pandemic has introduced an additional layer of uncertainty and forces companies to redefine work processes to mitigate the risk of the virus’ spread, all while trying to survive as a business. We have the ability to help our clients plan to minimize and trace staff contacts, to reduce the risk of contagion and adjust to operational changes in real-time.”

In addition, INFORM’s workforce management system, GroundStar (GS) WorkforcePlus, also applies proactive measures to minimize the risk of contagion.  The company’s fully web-based employee portal coordinates shift plans with the entire workforce, especially with those re-entering service. The portal can be accessed from any device. Any changes to the schedule are immediately visible. The portal is offered free of charge for the first two months.
