Needs Assessment
Our needs assessment helps assess special requirements to implement your airline's safety management software. Our assessment will provide airline managers a configuration profile based on your airline's size, geographic nature (more than one airline in group) and functional organization. airlines with fewer than 80 to 100 employees typically have only one division. Larger airlines may have multiple divisions, such as operations, facilities, administration and maintenance.

Airline authorities may have multiple airlines with each airline having their own portal or being either a division inside a parent airline safety portal.

State Safety Programs (SSPs) may also have special needs as to how their system will be configured.
airline Safety Program Design & Requirements
Airlines may require special configuration and customizations to the Web-based airline safety management software. In these cases, NWDS safety software professionals work with you to determine the appropriate modifications that might be required.

We review your business processes and determine whether the software modifications may help you best achieve your return on investment and improve safety. NWDS' design review process is simple and straight forward.

Our communication with your airline safety team is clear, concise and timely to ensure your airline management understands and approves system modifications before they are made.
Data Conversion & system integration
NWDS has over ten years of experience converting legacy data from existing and disparate safety databases of many different types.

We also can create connections to Human Resources and payroll systems. NWDS can easily pull existing data into our airline safety management software and also create integrations with existing systems. NWDS will provide you with data conversion plans and data integration plans that are easy to follow.

NWDS will work with your airline IT staff to ensure all your airline's data integration and data conversion needs are met.
Web Database & Software Configuration & Customizations
Based on your airline's functional needs and system requirements, NWDS can configure and customize the SMS Pro airline safety management software to meet your airline's specific business needs.

We provide your airline staff an opportunity to test and accept custom software modules to make sure we have met your design and system requirements.

We can also provide documentation on all our modifications, including training videos.
airline Safety Portal Set up
For each airline, we typically set up a unique portal with a dedicated URL. This airline safety portal is accessible only to your airline employees. Each airline may have a separate portal, or optionally, airline authorities may choose to have smaller airlines act as divisions of the larger airline safety program. In these cases, SMS Admins can choose whether personnel in other airlines can access or share data. Having other airlines configured as divisions works well when airline share similar:

- Policies;
- Safety Documents and forms.

When an airline has more than 100 employees, we recommend that this airline has its own safety portal.

Management portals can also be configured to manage the safety programs of other airlines. The benefits of management portals are that authorized personnel can get real time reports of all related airlines. Child portals (other airlines) cannot access data from other airlines; however, management portals can monitor safety activities of all portals in real-time.

For each airline safety portal, NWDS support staff configures the modules to match your plan and number of users purchased by your airline. Once your airline safety portal is set-up, you can configure site details yourself including departments, users, hazard reporting forms, and email notification settings. We are always available to assist your airline SMS Admins with system configuration and customization.
