Gryphyn Works and Horizon Air Begins Testing Emergency Communications Alert

Gryphyn Works announced today it will begin testing an emergency communications alert system for Horizon Air. Emergency testing will take place over the next two weeks and automatically run at random intervals to verify response times system wide.

The purpose of the testing is to ensure all essential Horizon personnel are notified immediately of an emergency alert situation using Gryphyn GSE Maintenance software. The technology allows designated employees to receive the message via pagers, computers and cellular phones. An emergency message can be deployed in text and voice form by entering the emergency alert once in the system. A fully auditable trail is automatically created with each notification.

"An effective communication system is always crucial, but especially during emergency situations" said Brad Wegner, System GSE Manager for Horizon Air. "With constant national threat status and extreme weather changes, we must have complete confidence in getting an emergency notification message to our employees, no matter what the time or location. A paging system simply isn't reliable enough to be effective."

The success of Gryphyn GSE Maintenance application with Horizon Air led to this venture and possible further discussions utilizing the Gryphyn Works Application Services Platform to implement solutions for other departments. Last month, Gryphyn successfully enabled Horizon Air to become the first airline in the world to conduct all its ground support equipment maintenance operations paperless.
