CrewBuddy is a leading edge solution that brings the convenience of managing crew information to the mobile and web platforms.
CrewBuddy empowers staff to manage their own roster and gain better control over swapping roster allocated activities.
CrewBuddy provides alerts and reminders for upcoming flights in addition to the capability to set custom reminders.
CrewBuddy allows for the personalization of a roster through the addition of custom notes to any day or duty.
CrewBuddy provides weather information and maps for all ports included in a roster. Crew are also able to gather additional information relating to their ports.
CrewBuddy enables crew to swap work with others at any time via an automated swap market. All proposed swaps are simulated and checked against a central rule base in real time to ensure feasibility.
Once the swap request has been agreed to, CrewBuddy passes the swap to the airline’s crew tracking system.
CrewBuddy allows crew to quickly export their rosters to any of the following formats:
CrewBuddy allows members of crew to send and receive private messages. Users can manage their messages via a Notifications inbox that notifies the user of any new messages received.
CrewBuddy allows crew to establish a sense of identity through the ownership of a profile with user defined privacy settings.
CrewBuddy fosters a greater sense of community between crew members by allowing them to view the current roster and locations of their fellow crew.
Crew can also elect to broadcast their location to fellow CrewBuddies, notifying them of flights or layovers they are currently on.
CrewBuddy allows crew to use their preferred Social Networking platform to share their work statistics, location and roster.
CrewBuddy also allows crew to access roster statistics over set periods, allowing them to keep track of their duty time, block hours or any other metrics.
CrewBuddy is designed to run on all of the following platforms:
Our online web portal allows crew to manage their account as they would on their mobile device. Additional services are also provided by the website such as the ability to access further details of fellow crew members and friends.
The web portal allows users to complete processes quicker and easier than they would be when performed via the mobile app.
Larger screen real estate allows users to see more in-depth information when viewing their rosters and swaps online.
In addition to this, an online administrators portal allows the enterprise to track their employee’s usage of the app, and easily push custom notifications.
New users can be added to the CrewBuddy network from the one portal. Roles can be created and users can be assigned different roles.
CrewBuddy is designed to be easily integrated into an enterprise’s existing I.T. infrastructure. Data can be loaded either through the processing of messages in an event queue or as a batch extract using XML. CrewBuddy stores its data using Constraint Technology’s Network Data Broker (NDB) technology. NDB is a super reliable multi-node data store that is capable of persisting data even with the loss of 49% of its nodes. All roster change requests are issued as a Change Message which are then loaded into the enterprise’s existing Crew DB using messaging, web services or secure sockets.
CrewBuddy is a hosted solution. A client will make a secure connection to one of our data centers in either Australia or the U.K. The CrewBuddy client is configured to automatically switch between data centers if needed to ensure continual service. The same CrewBuddy server processes requests from both mobile clients as well as web browsers. All roster changes are evaluated for legality using separate rules servers that can operate in parallel to allow for scale.
