GAT Airline Ground Support first to Benefit from new FiNDnet Shift Optimiser!

Staff are the most valuable, and the most expensive, resource that GSPs have. Making the most efficient use of staff is key to a well-run, profitable business. 

For many ground handlers like GAT the first step is to calculate the demand required to service their airline customers by using FiNDnet Demand Planning. This powerful system maps out all the resource types against the flight schedules, engagement standards and SLA database, and displays the results in an easy to follow Gantt chart. With full visibility of the operational day and advanced features for modelling ‘what-if’ scenarios, FiNDnet Demand Planning delivers crucial management information at-a-glance. 

To maximise the potential created by the calculated resource demand, the next step is to optimise shift patterns to meet that demand. This makes sure that you meet your contract SLAs with the right staff rostered in an efficient way.

Welcome to the all-new FiNDnet Shift Optimiser! 

Damarel is delighted to continue helping GAT Airline Ground Support with the mammoth task of staff optimisation across their 37-station network with the launch of FiNDnet Shift Optimiser. 

FiNDnet Shift Optimiser replaces manually intensive systems used to calculate staffing requirements with a fast, integrated and automated solution. Resource data is seamlessly transferred from FiNDnet Demand Planning and allows GAT to quickly produce optimised shift patterns for all resources, at all stations, for any period. Simple, fast and efficient, FiNDnet Shift Optimiser helps you maximise the potential of your staff.

Paul Bruton, FiNDnet Manager said:

“FiNDnet Shift Optimiser is a brand-new add-on module specifically developed to make the planning and allocation of staff even easier and more cost effective. It is very easy to use and a vital tool for ground handling managers to help them save time in staff planning and the wasted costs from over staffing, or the penalties for under-performance against SLAs.”
