INFORM Launches GS RegionMaster to Give Airlines a Network-Wide Overview

GroundStar (GS) RegionMaster now gives airlines expanded access to monitor the operational management of their stand assignments across the network

INFORM, a leading provider of AI-based optimization software known for improving decision-making, process efficiency, and resource management, introduces GS RegionMaster, exciting new software within INFORM’s GroundStar software suite. Primarily used by airlines, their small to medium size operation airports will now have a best-in-class solution for their stand assignment management. Control personnel will achieve even greater cost savings while improving on-time operational performance. GS RegionMaster, available as a SaaS solution (cloud-ready), brings greater efficiency and cost savings for airlines.

“With GS RegionMaster, airlines can monitor and manage numerous airports at a glance to identify conflicts or disruptions in order to avoid costly delays,” said Bernadette Schaefer, Product Manager for GS RegionMaster at INFORM. “Our new software solution allocates, and monitors stand assignments and delivers a transparent view of the situation on each airport in real-time. This supports airline’s regional managers in achieving smooth and efficient airport operations.” The new solution will be presented to the public for the first time at the upcoming PTE in Frankfurt (Hall 6.1 #D121).

GS RegionMaster was specifically designed to support airline regional managers, who are tasked with detecting and correcting irregularities in the ongoing operation of stand allocations. The software also alleviates their necessity of having to intermittently review individual stations, one by one. Users can now monitor their entire network in one view and will receive notifications when disruptions or irregularities are detected at a specific airport. This immediate and proactive guidance gives personnel the ability to intelligently solve problems before they occur.

With its advanced algorithms, GS RegionMaster excels at providing a focused set of functions that facilitate airlines in preparation for and upon conclusion of a flight. For example, time is critical in-flight management. If a flight is arriving early and an outgoing flight has been delayed, GS RegionMaster will alert the region manager to immediately navigate the incoming flight to an alternative parking position, saving wait time on the apron, avoiding further delays, and supporting more effective resource management.
