Wipro, in partnership with Qatar Airways, Thursday launched a range of information technology solutions for the aviation industry.
The aviation portfolio contains two categories of enterprise and mobility solutions. Enterprise solutions include products for crew management, route profitability analysis, loyalty management, inflight catering, aircraft maintenance planning and crisis management. Mobility solutions include products for pilots, cabin crew and flight dispatchers.
A Bangalore-based company statement said these products would help airlines fill gaps in their IT applications and provide an edge over competitors.
"We believe that this portfolio of products will transform the airline industry and help them do business better," said Anand Sankaran, senior vice president and business head, Global Infrastructure Services & Wipro Infotech.
In September 2012, Wipro entered into a strategic partnership with Qatar Airways to research and develop the portfolio resulting in new software products for the airline industry.
“These solutions have played a key role in enhancing customer service and operational efficiency of Qatar Airways,” Akbar Al Baker, chief executive officer of Qatar Airways said.
“Now these already proven solutions can be brought to market and deployed in a variety of means such as licensing or Software as a Service.”
