Success for A-ICE Ground Handling Solutions at the 21st GHI Conference
The 21st Annual GHI Conference was a success for A-ICE earlier this month, where we showcased our suite of Ground Handling Solutions. We gained some promising new leads and made the most of the fantastic networking opportunities the event offers airlines, ground handlers and service providers from around the world.
We received interesting feedback on the dedicated R753 compliance material, designed to offer airlines a streamlined, automated system that strengthens operations and meets compliance seamlessly. Compliance responsibility is an area surrounded by consistent debate within the industry at the current time. Although the deadline for compliance passed in June 2018, many airlines still remain non-compliant due to certain constraints at an infrastructural level.
A-ICE aren’t like other service providers
A-ICE’s suite of airport and ground handling solutions are designed to streamline and unlock vital operational efficiency at many levels. A surprising number of ground handlers revealed that they are still using paper-based recording systems for core operations to fill a gap in current processes.
We are different from other service providers. A-ICE provide uniquely flexible solutions that offer the chance to integrate dedicated, specific features into other systems. Our solutions carry a ‘no minimum usage’ policy unlike any other provider, who often insist on an expensive, long-term contractual agreement. A-ICE’s ‘pay-as-you-go’ flexibility delivers offers a unique opportunity to add vital, scalable features to augment current processes without blowing bottom-line budgeting.
Automation is still a hot topic for ground handlers
Automation is still a high priority for ground handling teams and airline operators. As interest around cargo was heightened this year, our A-HDB Handling Database was well-received at the stand. Handlers using paper-based recording processes understand the benefits of enhanced efficiency achieved through the automation of these core processes – particularly during aircraft turnaround monitoring (and compliance) – and the use of handheld devices for ease of accessibility.
A last word from A-ICE
The 21st annual GHI conference in Amsterdam, even though not so well attended this year, always offers some of the best networking opportunities in the sector and we enjoy spending this time with both existing and potential clients and catching up with our peers in the industry.
These types of events still feel like must-attend opportunities for the industry and we are looking ahead to other GHIC regions. We’d like to thank all who visited us at our stand this year in Amsterdam. We appreciated your interest and feedback and we look forward to seeing you at the next event.
