ADB SAFEGATE Airport Systems’ new Resource Management Express (RMX) is an automated, intelligent way to manage airport resources and flight schedules. The cloud-based software as a service (SaaS) solution offers a real-time, integrated view of gates, stands, and baggage reclaim stations allowing operators to plan and allocate airport resources from anywhere. With accurate data, in one place, airports and airlines can respond more quickly to unplanned events, make better decisions and plan for growth.
“Resource management systems (RMS) are typically associated with a higher level of hardware and infrastructure management costs and seen as solutions for large airports,” said Sébastien Jodeau, Vice President Airport Systems & Tower Solutions, ADB SAFEGATE Airport Systems. “But we’ve honed our expertise in RMS over 20-plus years, and we believe that airports of all sizes can benefit from resource optimization That’s why we’ve designed RMX as a turnkey solution: it’s scalable, affordable and easy to use.”
The turnkey RMX is ideal for airports or airlines wanting to avoid the complexities of a traditional RMS. It is fully hosted and managed by ADB SAFEGATE Airport Systems and comes with online training and 24/7 tech support. Its feature-packed suite includes modules for planning, allocation, alerting and reporting as well as a rule-based engine that automatically factors in constraints and preferences specific to each airport allocating these resources in a matter of seconds, boosting operational efficiency.
Real-time alerts improve situational awareness and safety, by allowing users to proactively manage disruptions and avoid, as well as resolve, conflicts. Airlines can work closely with airports and ground handlers to reduce ground time and support more sustainable operations.
With RMX’s virtual sandbox area, airports and airlines can check if existing resources can support additional flights. This automated test environment is particularly useful to identify growth opportunities and manage seasonal surges in air traffic. RMX can integrate easily with the Airport Operational Database, billing and other airport systems. In addition to an extensive library of canned reports on resource usage and on-time performance, airports can integrate RMX with third-party business intelligence tools for advanced reporting capabilities to improve decision making.
RMX is now available commercially for airports and airlines with the first deployment of the system planned at a small airport in North America.
