GCR Inc. launches AirportIQ Safety Management System

New Orleans, LA, May 10, 2016

GCR Inc. (GCR), a New Orleans-based technology and professional services company, proudly expands its AirportIQ suite of aviation industry software solutions with the launch of AirportIQ Safety Management System (SMS). AirportIQ SMS offers airports a flexible, easy-to-use process that guides risk management in accordance with FAA regulations and allows airport staff, tenants, and the public to work together to report and mitigate safety issues.

AirportIQ SMS was built with input from leading airport operations professionals, airport risk managers and GCR safety experts who have been creating airport operational safety software for over 15 years. With AirportIQ SMS, users from any airport department can collaborate to triage, track, and analyze safety issues. Incident trends can be evaluated and corrective actions can be developed, all while staying in compliance with FAA guidelines.

Matt Batina, product manager, stresses the dual benefits that AirportIQ SMS brings to an airport: “AirportIQ SMS is the software that airports need to jumpstart and stay in a position of compliance with the FAA. It is a powerful tool that provides all the information needed to identify safety trends, keep full audit trails of all reported issues, and show the proactive effort being made to manage risk.”

AirportIQ SMS follows the FAA Advisory Circular 150/5200-37A: Safety Management Systems for Airports and is able to integrate with AirportIQ Airport Safety & Operations Compliance System (ASOCS) and other FAA Part 139 and event management software. It provides a central point of operational safety monitoring, risk management, and compliance for your airport.

AirportIQ Safety Management System will be unveiled by the GCR aviation team at the 88th annual AAAE Conference in Houston on Tuesday, May 17. Tim Walsh, GCR’s Director of Aviation Services, will be the featured speaker for the “Risk Management and Safety Assurance with AirportIQ in a time of Regulatory Uncertainty” session being held at 9 a.m. in Innovation Theater 1. The AirportIQ team will also be set up in the exhibit hall during the conference. Please stop by booth 920 for more information.
