Flight Information service for mass market powered by OutSystems
Lisbon, Portugal - 19 September 2005
OutSystems Hub Edition platform has been selected to power ANA Aeroportos’ Info Flight system, aimed at the general public.
ANA Aeroportos has recently launched a public service that provides very useful information about flight status, which is especially relevant for frequent flyers, meeters and greeters.
This system was created with the OutSystems Hub Edition platform, allowing passengers and general public to have information on a flight status anywhere, via SMS. If you have a flight to catch or if you must pick someone at the airport, a simple SMS message may help you coordinate your professional and personal schedule, or even prevent you from waiting around in the airport.
This time saving system provides two levels of service – the Status and the Alert options – for both departures and arrivals. The Status option provides information about flight status. Right after sending the SMS with the flight number, you receive back another SMS with the same information that is displayed on the airport monitors. If you wish to be periodically notified of the flight status evolution, you just need to confirm the Alert option on that message, and you will receive an Alert SMS 2 hours before Arrival / Departure, 1 hour before Arrival / Departure and one for Arrival / Boarding.
ANA Aeroportos has been using the OutSystems Hub Edition platform since 2003, to create a set of management systems that enhance several business processes. The multi-channel capabilities and the simplicity in integrating with existing systems were the main reasons for choosing OutSystems.
