LONDON, Aug. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- LogicaCMG today announced that the wireless solution it provided to Britannia Airways enabling cabin crew and pilots to access flight and company information via a personal digital assistant (PDA)- has been awarded the Sybase 2003 Innovator Award for Mobile Solutions. The wireless solution which currently has over 2,300 users eradicates the need for paper-based processes allowing flight, roster, passenger, health and safety information to be captured quickly, reducing the time taken for crew to check in. LogicaCMG integrated an iAnywhere solution with Britannia Airways' existing enterprise information system over a wireless network located in all UK crew rooms, enabling the PDA to be used to access information. Britannia Airways will save #500,000 per annum by automating 50 workflow processes, eliminating the need for printed manuals and a dedicated electronic point of sales system. The solution also supports the in-flight sales system, Skytrader, enabling the PDA to act as a tax free point of sales application. Moreover, Britannia's 450 pilots are now able to access technical calculations, flight reports, aviation journals and other records via their laptops. During the pre-flight briefing, the wireless solution allows data to be transferred to all crew simultaneously enabling them to perform concurrent activity. Previously, crew members experienced bottlenecks at PCs and printers. All crew can now connect wirelessly allowing flight data to be captured within three minutes meaning the fifteen minute pre-flight window is not threatened and flights are not delayed. Iain Andrew, Britannia Airways' Director of IT and Change, said "LogicaCMG's broad service portfolio allows Britannia to centralise all of its development with highly qualified staff. I see LogicaCMG as a long-term partner for Britannia". This is the third year Sybase has run the awards for iAnywhere Solutions Alliance Program members, LogicaCMG won the award for its innovative use of iAnywhere Solutions. Tony Prendergast, service delivery manager, LogicaCMG said, "This award highlights our commitment to providing wireless solutions that enable businesses to rework traditional processes so that they operate more effectively. It illustrates our ability to leverage strong partnerships to provide our customers with the best solution to meet their business needs". NOTES TO EDITORS LogicaCMG also received the award for successful implementation of its mobile ticketing solution provided to NoordNed, the second largest provider of transportation services in the Netherlands. The mobile ticketing solution which utilised iAnywhere products enables travellers to book tickets via mobile telephone and receive an SMS ticket that inspectors validate against information stored on PDA's.
