MINT SOFTWARE SYSTEMS WINS VIRGIN ATLANTIC AIRWAYS AS NEW CUSTOMER FOR ITS TRAINING MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE MNT TMS
Kiel, 09 December 2014 – MINT Software Systems announces the signature of a service agreement with Virgin Atlantic Airways for the implementation of its web based Training Management System MINT TMS.
MINT Software Systems, provider of contemporary Training and Learning Management Software products, has signed a software agreement with the UK based airline Virgin Atlantic Airways, for the implementation of the fully web based MINT training and ATQP management software MINT TMS. Virgin Atlantic will use the new system for effective license and qualification tracking and pilot training management, with a focus on electronic grade sheets and records for ATQP data analysis.
MINT TMS allows to collect and analyze all training related data electronically and provides access to electronic grade sheets, which instructors can use on tablets during training sessions for example in full flight simulators, even without active internet connection. The collected data is automatically stored and synchronized with the main database from where the training results can immediately be accessed by the planning staff, either for operational purposes or for further analysis.
“With MINT TMS we have found the best training management solution available on the market today. It will allow us to optimize our training workflows and speed up the ATQP training data collection with its outstanding electronic data gathering capabilities”, says Graham Stokes, Head of Flight Operations Training and Standards at Virgin Atlantic. “We are convinced, that the exceptional electronic grading tools of MINT TMS will help us to significantly enhance the day to day life of our instructors and trainees and that they will really love the instant online access to their up-to-date training schedules in the integrated, multifunctional web portal”, he adds.
“We are very happy that Virgin Atlantic has chosen MINT for their pilot training management and the ATQP related data collection and analysis” says Jörg Latteier, Managing Director of MINT Software Systems. “Virgin Atlantic is a very important customer to us and we are proud to welcome yet another major player of the international airline aviation industry to the MINT user community.”
The agreement signed by Virgin Atlantic Airways and MINT Software Systems includes the fully embedded electronic grading functionality and ATQP management for cockpit crews. Virgin Atlantic Airways intends to implement the MINT hosted SaaS (Software as a Service) deployment across all functional workgroups of the airline’s training department.
