6A

AviationManuals, leading provider of aircraft operations manuals as well as SMS software, and emergency services provider Fireside Partners, Inc. are collaborating to provide enhanced Emergency Response Programs (ERP) through integration with Safety Management System (SMS) software. The collaboration will also allow them to provide higher quality collaborative ERP manuals and services with each of them focusing on their core strengths.

Fireside Partners, New Castle, Del., a fully integrated emergency services provider, delivers comprehensive services and resources required to respond effectively and compassionately in aviation crisis situations. Integrating elements of Fireside Partners’ ERP processes into ARC, AviationManuals’ SMS software, will provide clients with a more robust and effective ERP implementation.

“AviationManuals and Fireside, both leaders in our respective areas, are closely partnering to improve and blend elements of our SMS software with Fireside’s Emergency Response Programs,” said AviationManuals CEO Mark Baier. “The collaboration allows each company to offer clients improved ERP implementation through multiple ERP and SMS touch points.”

People, Perception and Participation

“Following an aviation accident, medical or mechanical emergency or act of criminal intent, an organization’s three priorities should be to protect people, protect the perception of the business and participate effectively in an investigation,” said Don Chupp, President and CEO of Fireside Partners. “This new partnership with AviationManuals brings together industry best practices, coupled with the rare ability to flex and customize the services and resources of two leading companies. Just as in any quality aviation manual, it is important that operators can actually do what they say they will do. The international community is resisting the traditional template-minded approach, and holding the aviation industry to account. This logical blending of ERP and SMS adds customization, certainty, and service excellence to an operator’s safety program.
