GCR Inc. (GCR), a New Orleans-based software and services firm, is supporting Airports Council International (ACI) as an Airport Excellence (APEX) in Safety Program World Business Partner. ACI, an association of the world’s airports, created the APEX program to promote safer airport operations, foster the sharing of best safety practices, and improve overall safety compliance and performance. As a World Business Partner, GCR will assist APEX in making use of valuable data collected from participating airports via enhanced user trainings. GCR will offer use of its AirportIQ software, a platform designed to gather intelligence and create efficiencies, where all observations will be recorded via mobile technology.
“Our mobile platform will assist in the assessment of operations and infrastructure by providing checklists, logging and reporting capabilities, and allowing observations to be captured in real time. Through our AirportIQ technology, we hope to improve the efficiency of the on-site review team, enhance the quality of feedback to the host airport, and facilitate learning across the entire APEX team,” explains Tim Walsh, CEO of GCR’s Airports Division.
Headquartered in New Orleans, LA, GCR offers a broad range of software products and services to over 100 airports that help gather, analyze, and apply information. GCR’s client base extends from the aviation market to a broad array of public sector clients at the federal, state, and local level.
