Houston TX. July 31, 2013. Optimized Systems and Solutions, Inc. (OSyS) announced today Garuda Indonesia went live with visiumAQDTM, an integrated safety and risk management solution that combines quality assurance audits with flight, cabin, maintenance and ground safety occurrence reporting. The implementation of the system is in line with the airline’s strategic expansion program and forms part of its commitment to constantly improve its safety quality.

visiumAQDTM is a comprehensive set of tools that integrates risk-related activities across organisations; from safety, quality and security management to occupational safety, environmental management and beyond. visiumAQDTM covers all functions from accident/incident reporting, risk assessment, compliance, analysis and investigation through to auditing and corrective action tracking. It has been developed by aviation software specialists and is backed by over 20 years’ experience in delivering aviation software solutions to regulatory authorities, airlines and other aviation-related organisations.

Novijanto Herupratomo, Executive Vice President (EVP) Operations of Garuda Indonesia, said that Garuda Indonesia’s choice to go with visiumAQDTM as its Safety Management System (SMS) is part of its effort to improve its safety quality. “In line with our long-term expansion program, and due to the fact that traffic volumes continue to increase, we are always committed to constantly improving our safety and complying with global flight safety standards.” Mr. Herupratomo said.

Mr. Herupratomo also said that visiumAQDTM is widely used and recognised as a high quality product, and that as the program moves towards being completely browser-based, this will enable their staff right across the organisation to report incidents and be assigned corrective actions.

Garuda Indonesia currently uses visiumAQDTM Audit, Safety and Risk modules. Part of the implementation project involved migrating historical safety data from the legacy system. This data migration brought all recorded safety incidents, along with their classifications and subsequent follow-up findings and actions, into visiumAQDTM, allowing combined analysis of data recorded in the legacy system with new data entered into visiumAQDTM. This avoids any cutover issues in reporting and analysis.
