Airport In Cloud is a modular, cloud-based IT solution developed by A-ICE, the experts in aviation IT. It provides small and medium-sized airport operators with an accessible, efficient and cost-effective route to implementing a compliant software stack for smooth-running airport operations.
Already in use at busy European aviation hubs, Airport In Cloud is based on a selection of core components that come together as a suite of cloud-hosted applications. Clients can deploy the full suite for an end-to-end airport management solution or simply pick and choose the applications to suit their circumstances.
Because it is offered on a pay-per-use basis, costs for Airport In Cloud are directly related to a client’s level of activity. And because it is a Software as a Service (SaaS), an internet connection is all that’s needed to get started.
Airport In Cloud is made up of a series of well-established in-market software products that each control specific aspects of functionality. Developed by A-ICE’s team of aviation software experts, they are built on state-of-the-art technology and compliant with current industry standards.
Airport In Cloud is equally suitable for an entirely new installation at a greenfield site as it is for an established airport location, having been designed for maximum flexibility when it comes to integration with existing systems and programs.
The Airport In Cloud front-end features a user-friendly graphical user interface (GUI) that has been designed to be highly intuitive, helping operators get up-to-speed quickly and minimise the time, effort and cost associated with training.
With Airport In Cloud, there is no requirement for anything to be installed at the client site and applications are managed remotely, minimizing effort and cost both for the initial deployment and on an ongoing basis.
Airport In Cloud is held on a highly secure, managed platform to guarantee stability of operation and to safeguard the integrity of the data contained within client systems.
At a time when airport operators are faced with significant declines in income, fixed overheads from costly software licences are a burden on the balance sheet. Airport In Cloud’s pay-per-use model is a highly cost-effective alternative, with only a minimal set-up charge and low-level ongoing licence fees.
As well as providing a pleasing experience for users, Airport In Cloud gives management team access to highly valuable data insights through its dashboards, reporting and analytics, all of which can inform operational and strategic decision-making.
