Ideagen, a supplier of information management software to organisations in highly regulated industries, has secured a contract to provide International Airlines Group (IAG) with a safety and risk management and reporting software solution.
IAG, parent company of Aer Lingus, British Airways, Iberia and Vueling, will adopt Ideagen’s cloud-based safety and reporting software product, Coruson, to implement a safety and risk management system across the group.
Coruson, a SaaS software product, will enable IAG’s portfolio of airlines, cargo operators and maintenance repair organisations to proactively manage safety and security and provide staff with a mobile incident reporting application.
The IAG contract strengthens Ideagen’s position in the aviation safety sector. The company already provides software and services to over 100 regional and national airlines including Emirates, KLM, Thomas Cook, Brussels Airlines, Spirit Airlines and Air Transat.
David Hornsby, Ideagen’s CEO, says: “We are delighted to announce a new contract win with International Airlines Group, one of the world’s largest airline groups.
“Across the aviation industry, we continue to see strong new business demand for our software and with 10% of the tier one market currently using our products, we are confident of further extensive growth in this particular area.”
Raghbir S Pattar, chief operating officer of IAG Global Business Services, says: “The safety and security of our customers and staff is always our top priority, so we are delighted to be implementing new software which can make our reporting systems more effective, and our airlines safer.
“We encourage our staff to highlight any safety or security issues which concern them, and being able to do this on the move means we will get accounts of incidents quickly and more accurately so that we can fully investigate, and work to mitigate risks.
“We look forward to working with Ideagen on creating a fully-integrated platform for use across the group.”
Hornsby states: “This contract with IAG is a major win for our SaaS Coruson platform and it is further testament to both our product innovation and ability to successfully engage with larger organisations in aviation and beyond.”
