Thiruvananthapuram, July 3 (IANS) IBS Software Services, a provider of information technology (IT) solutions to the travel, transportation and logistics industry, has signed an agreement with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines for providing a crew management solution. The company said here Thursday the airline will gradually replace the existing mainframe system with IBS crew management solution AvientCrew.

AvientCrew will help KLM manage all aspects of their crew operations - from planning vacations and roster systems, to tracking performance.

“This new system for roster maintenance for our cabin and cockpit crew is very important for KLM operations,” Y. de Haan, the airline’s executive vice-president of operations, was quoted as saying.

“We see this deal as a major milestone for IBS and the AvientCrew product,” IBS chairman and chief executive V.K. Mathews said.

The existing clients of IBS include Cathay Pacific, Emirates, Iberia, China Southern Airlines, Oman Air, Air New Zealand, Qatar Airways, Qantas and airports which include Heathrow and Gatwick in London, and the New Tokyo International Airport.

Since its inception in the late 1990s, IBS has developed 17 software products for the travel, transportation and logistics sectors.
