Shannon, Ireland. November 2013//With the release of Alkym Version 5.4 Volartec have the pleasure to announce a complete new Safety Management System (SMS) Module to enhance the already fully integrated maintenance management solution on offer.  Complementing the Quality Assurance Module along with the integrated digital document module M-Files the SMS module was the next natural evolution for Alkym.

Just a few highlights of the SMS module included in Alkym relate to the ability to:

  • Define responsibility levels and permissions associated for all the resources that intervene in the management of SMS
  • Enables the publication and revision of policies, procedures and all the documents associated to the management of operational security
  • Records events associated with safety, such as incidents (events that impact safety directly) or as occurrences (events that may result in an incident)
  • Allows the user to categorize the event and apply a criticality rate in relation of the risk associated
  • Monitors all the investigations of events and highlights the items expired. The Safety Manager or Executive may perform recommendations and monitor the implementation
  • The SMS module provides statistical reports and graphical analysis of trends. These reports may be performed in accordance to the incident type, aircraft type or location

John Barry, SVP Business Development with Volartec greeted the new release stating, ”Every three months we do a major release of Alkym. We look to the market to see where we can add value to our market leading product. With the addition of the SMS Module it allows our existing and potential customers leverage more value from our integrated solution. The idea of having one system to manage as many aspects of the business as possible was the message we were getting. Now the customer can get SMS along with all the existing features but still we have a price tag that makes it us the most cost effective solution available.”

As with all modules in Alkym SMS can be taken as an integrated solution or a standalone module. A bundle offering QA / SMS & M-Files (& HR) is available.
