A better way to communicateFlight Dispatch, Operations Control, Weight and Balance, Maintenance, Pilots, Aircraft Routing Crew Scheduling Airport Operations, Airport Services, Passenger Services and 3rd Party Partners and Contractors can now collaborate on operational problems and situations, using a common platform.
Collaboration and sharing of the latest information among many airline business units, allows even the most complex issues to be resolved timely and efficiently. A common communications platform is now able to unite: Flight Dispatch, Operations Control, Weight and Balance, Maintenance, Pilots, Aircraft Routing Crew Scheduling Airport Operations, Airport Services, Passenger Services and 3rd Party Partners and Contractors.
Supported by our advanced alerting and notification system, S4A Smart COMM represents a significant advance in streamlining and improving airline communications and decision making by presenting relevant, key information and data to all operational stakeholders.
S4A Smart COMM cannot replace human input for various position accountabilities, but it is a solution that allows the individual to focus on more critical aspects of their jobs, and permit the technical and interface-related issues be solved by the professionals at Smart4Aviation.
Alerting and NotificationsOver 70 types of alerts can be established to warn of any operational conditions, providing users with a comprehensive view of the operation in real time. Airline can precisely customize types of alert and conditions for each user group to make sure no user is disturbed by irrelevant information.
Regardless of an individual’s role in the airline, with S4A Smart COMM alerts can be established to warn of any operational conditions, providing users with a comprehensive view of the operation in real time. Key examples of events for ground and station personnel are flight cancellations, aircraft changes and delays; for staff concerned with flight watch, alerts such as en-route turbulence and altitude variance can be established. Pilots can be informed via ACARS about changing weather or aerodrome conditions. One can precisely customize types of alerts and conditions for each user group to make sure no user is disturbed by irrelevant information. S4A Smart COMM is equipped with a powerful and intuitive assignment builder tool for managing and maintaining the system functions, access rights and alert routing capabilities. With S4A Smart COMM, you give your airport, maintenance, departure control, SOC, STOC, operations or back office users a single tool for complete operational awareness.

Case Study was published on Aircraft IT magazine in Autumn 2012.
"The implementation of S4A Smart COMM at Air Canada significantly improved communication between operational groups and flight watch. Thanks to many exception-based alerting rules, unwanted or irrelevant information is filtered out and only the most relevant messages and alerts are delivered to users. The user is more focused on critical aspects of airline operations and able to react faster in crisis situation."
