Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) March 2, 2007
Gryphyn Works, a pioneer in hosted maintenance and tracking systems, has enabled Horizon Air to become the first airline in the world to conduct all its ground support equipment maintenance operations paperless.
Horizon Air partnered with Gryphyn Works in June 2006 to provide a comprehensive solution in managing all of Horizon's GSE maintenance operations system-wide. Since implementation, Horizon began a calculated integration of their GSE maintenance operations using Gryphyn's web based application, Gryphyn GSE Maintenance, to become paperless within 7 months.
Andy Schneider, Senior Vice President of Customer Services for Horizon Air, reported the accomplishment after core GSE offices in Boise, Seattle, Spokane and Portland were fully integrated into the system. "Our goal was to find a secure, paperless solution comprehensive enough to manage all of our daily GSE operations - equipment and parts management, cost analysis, document management, and accident investigation support. Going paperless has given us a cost-effective way to track equipment and gather critical details about accidents and emergency repairs."
Built on the Gryphyn Works Application Services platform, Gryphyn converted Horizon's pre-existing manual processes with no capital equipment expenditures. The success of Gryphyn GSE Maintenance application with Horizon has led to further discussions utilizing the Gryphyn Works Application Services Platform to implement solutions for other departments. Last week, Gryphyn successfully enacted its Emergency Communication System to alert company management system-wide of any national threat status changes or internal emergencies by sending text messages to employee cell phones, pagers and emails.
"Gryphyn is proud to be associated with Horizon as an innovative, technological leader in the aviation industry," says Michael Wegner, President of Gryphyn Works. "We are pleased at the speed of this integration and look forward to collaborating with Horizon for many years to come."
