The staff rostering system, APHIS, has been awarded with this year’s Inter Airport Europe’s innovation award in the category interDATA.

The system was developed as part of a co-operation between the topsystem Systemhaus and AHS Aviation Handling Services.

APHIS, short for Aviation Personnel Handling and Information System is a computer program that integrates components such as flight data and specific service requirements of single airlines. APHIS also allows for the quick response to unforeseeable events like sickness notifications or changes in flight schedules.

Integrated data may be utilised for accounting purposes from within the system.
“With this program, we are perfectly prepared for all the special requirements that the working environment at airports holds up for us as a service provider,” said Martin Roll, Managing Director and Chairman of the Management Board at AHS Aviation Handling Services GmbH. “APHIS therefore enables us to organise our staff in the best possible manner.”

“In topsystem we found a highly specialised partner that perfectly responded to our needs and we are very proud of also having convinced this year’s inter airport Europe’s innovation award jury with our concept,” added Amélie Charisius, Managing Director at AHS Aviation Handling Services.

topsystem Managing Director, Franz-Josef Leuchter, concluded: “We extended AHS’ existing ground handling software with the APHIS module, which meant a completely new approach to solving the rostering issue. It now includes the entire process of staff rostering, starting from roster drafts leading to day-to-day operational deployment control – all within the very same user interface.”
