mercator's operational safety solution keeps flying high
08 Mar 2010
Dubai, U.A.E., 8th March 2010 - mercator's operational safety solution, Sentinel, is continuing to experience high demand across the globe with a number of new contracts being signed recently.
Air Canada, Brussels Airlines, Insel Air, Royal Netherland Air Force, Surinam Airways, and Scandinavian Airlines have all adopted and expanded their use of mercator's Sentinel product to help them effectively manage safety in their organisation.
Sentinel is an advanced safety information and reporting solution which monitors airline safety data, enabling users to pinpoint potential areas of concern quickly and accurately. It captures safety-related data efficiently - information is entered into the system as incident reports - which can include everything from the seemingly trivial through to full emergency situations - and analyses this accumulated information to helps detect patterns and trends which are significant or may become significant. The results can be transmitted reliably and in real time to safety specialists within an organisation, guiding them in creating and adopting preventative strategies and targeting resources appropriately.
Duncan Alexander, Vice President, Sales and Market Development, mercator said: "We are delighted to provide our solutions and support to an ever expanding range of airline customers. Safety is always a top priority for airlines these partnerships illustrate our customers' belief in mercator's product development strategy and vision."
In Europe, Brussels Airlines (May 2009), Surinam Airways (October 2009) and the Royal Netherland Air Force (in January 2010), all recently expanded their use of Sentinel, which is capable of recording safety incident reports from various areas of the organisation to become their entire corporate safety management system. This allows airlines' corporate safety managers to have a central repository of safety incidents.
In the Americas, Air Canada selected Sentinel and migrated across from its previous use of a product called WinBASIS in September 2009. In the same region more recently Insel Air selected Sentinel for their Flight Safety information management. Insel Air International B.V. is a Curacao-based airline, privately-owned and operating scheduled services linking a dozen destinations in Aruba, Bonaire, Brazil, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, St. Maarten, Surinam, the United Sates (Houston, Miami and New York) and Venezuela from Curacao's Hato Airport.
