Atlanta, GA, November 26, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Bermuda’s L.F. Wade International Airport (BDA), completed an airport-wide installation of Quantum Aviation Solutions’ BagScan, baggage reconciliation solution (BRS). The airport selected BagScan’s hosted model eliminating all upfront costs for implementation.
“We chose Quantum’s baggage reconciliation solution for two reasons. Their hosted model of BagScan allowed us to implement a new BRS without any capital expenditures. Quantum’s knowledge of our existing solution assured us that we could continue to operate with minimal downtime during the installation,” said Donald Clark, Manager of Airport Operations at the L.F. Wade International Airport.
“The airport placed great importance on technical support and was looking for a partner to deliver more than a cost-effective solution.” said Robert Gonzalez, Director of Business Development, Quantum Aviation Solutions. “BagScan’s hosted model satisfied all of L.F. Wade’s requirements to improve baggage handling, have access to knowledgeable technical support and minimize installation costs. We had the added benefit of knowing their existing BRS and were able to service the product during the transition period.”
Quantum’s BagScan provides baggage reconciliation for the airport’s nine commercial airlines that service 17 cities in Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States.
With its high performance features, BagScan has helped airports and airlines raise their on-time performance, passenger satisfaction, and employee productivity, while significantly reducing incidences of lost or mishandled baggage and related operating costs. BagScan is part of the BagSuite solution which also includes BagTrail. BagScan incorporates an innovative wireless design, barcode technology, and leading edge system architecture.
