Aviation SMS - It's about the Money!

Airline & Airport SMS - It's about the Money!

Aviation SMS has been moving at a snail's pace in the U.S. because business is driven by the "bottom line."

Airline service providers are tasked with the often "dirty/unwelcome" task of being the "Safety Manager." Effective safety managers report directly to top management; however, they have no power to assign resources to fix safety issues. Their position requires them to use considerable tact in facilitating the "safety process."

Top management is concerned about adding value to stakeholders' investments. Anytime a safety manager appears before management with "non-essential" expenses, he must be prepared to justify the expense. This is often difficult for safety managers and aviation SMS software tools.
NWDS has been failing safety managers in this respect and we now promise to support your efforts to justify these expenses. SMS Pro is a top-notch, Web-based aviation SMS tool to save the organization time and money.

SMS Pro isn't about "saving the world," any longer, because, simply put, this message doesn't affect the bottom line unless your company advertises to its customers about its aviation safety programs (and customers believe you).
SMS Pro is about making money for your organization and providing the BEST aviation SMS tools on the market. NWDS will provide tools and industry metrics to make your business more profitable.
  • Compare your company with others of your size/region/certificate type.
  • Determine which safety issues (by category) are costing your organization the most money and target those categories to save you money.
  • Justify your expenses with a business case template that requires a minimum of work for managers to prepare and present.
  • Easily enter costs in SMS Pro and get real-time financial reports in seconds.
This is only a taste of what SMS Pro users can expect in the near future. SMS Pro is about showing your organization the money. Your organization can present to your customers that your ulterior motives is purely altruistic and in the betterment of society; however, you run a business and business is about the money.
