ASQS, a leading global provider of integrated aviation Quality and Safety Management solutions is thrilled to announce the launch of its latest feature – the iQSMS Ai Co-Validator. Developed in close cooperation with Lufthansa Industry Solutions (LHIND), a renowned IT service provider specializing in digital transformation, the Ai Co-Validator promises to radically transform the way organizations process large volumes of incoming reports.

Leveraging ASQS’ expertise in aviation safety and risk management and Lufthansa Industry Solutions’ understanding of complex IT landscapes, system integration capabilities as well as a shared passion for innovation, the Ai Co-Validator optimizes the processing of reports with the help of artificial intelligence and thus contributes to a significant increase in productivity in aviation organizations.

Users of iQSMS can benefit from the collaboration by saving time and resources while ensuring higher data quality and compliance”.

The sophisticated tool examines the content of incoming reports and suggests the best matching customer-specific event classification. If the classification suggested by the AI matches the reporter’s selection and either reaches the highest AI confidence score or exceeds the predefined minimum confidence score for the specific event classification, the report is automatically approved.

By approving incoming reports on a 24/7/365 basis in the iQSMS Reporting Module, the Ai Co-Validator ensures that important safety information is consistently forwarded to the relevant departments, not just during office hours but around the clock. The sophisticated tool thus reduces time-consuming repetitive and routine tasks and frees up resources for more critical tasks, increasing the company’s overall safety and effectiveness levels. One of the main advantages of the Ai Co-Validator also lies in its objectivity. By eliminating possible personal subjectivities and performing based on the operator’s taxonomy, the AI ensures objective and consistent report analysis and evaluation.

As GlobalX onboards new aircraft, ProAuthor will enable faster, more routine manual revisions and help the airline remain audit ready. Comply365’s mobile app will automate compliance tracking for the airline’s users and electronic forms will provide frontline employees with an easy way to send information from the field to the operations staff, to enable data-driven decisions.

GlobalX joins a community of more than 90 global customers, from start-up airlines to the world’s most mature carriers, from ultra low-cost to full-service airlines, charter operators, cargo airlines, business aviation, ACMI and wet-lease operators, Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS), flight training and rail operations.
