"Our industry is heavily regulated - compliance is mandatory and outstanding service is required 24/7. Because of Intelex we now have 100% visibility of our training compliance at every location, and as a result the level of non-compliance on mandatory subjects has fallen to almost nil."

Servisair provides aircraft ground handling services at 175 airports, and prior to Intelex these locations all had different approaches to managing training. In some cases these methods were no more sophisticated than a whiteboard with dates on it, while others were using solutions such as Microsoft Access databases. The lack of global oversight left Servisair vulnerable; there was always the risk of being blindsided by an auditor discovering a previously unknown noncompliance.
Servisair required one system that could track, monitor, predict and report on training requirements and compliance across all their locations. They required each of their locations to have the autonomy to control and deliver their own training, but there needed to be visibility at the global level. Servisair wanted to start slow, but they were also interested in finding a solution that could at some point be leveraged to deliver eLearning and online testing, and eventually be expanded into a full Quality Management System.
Intelex offered exactly what Servisair was looking for at that moment, and stood out from other suppliers because it was possible to start small and expand the system over time. Alternative providers required Servisair to purchase a full blown system up front, even if initially Servisair would only be using 10% of that solution.
With Intelex, Servisair would be paying for exactly what they were using, with the ability to easily add on to the solution as needed in the future. Within approximately a week of purchasing Intelex's software, Servisair had their first airport loaded into the system and was able to start seeing the benefits.
More than a year after the initial implementation, it was decided that an aircraft cleaning division should be added to the Intelex system as well. Intelex's user-friendly nature made it possible for a Servisair employee with average IT skills to import approximately 2,000 new employees at 24 different airports and their entire training history into the system independently and with relative ease. In mere days, this new department was up and running with Servisair's training system.
