Darwin International Airport selected WhosOnLocation Visitor, Contractor and Induction Management cloud based software over several competing companies in May 2014
Darwin International Airport needed to manage the compliance of visitors and contractors onto the Darwin location. Included with the solution are a number of wall mounted self-serve kiosk’s allowing groups of employees and contractors to sign in and out as they arrive and leave the location providing all compliance has been met. The contractor kiosks are placed strategically around the airport giving access to all contractors as they arrive at the location.
While the requirements for Darwin International Airport were all met out of the box not long after starting to use the software we were asked if we could create a live feed that could be broadcast onto several large tv screens showing the status of any contractor currently on site including the total hours and minutes the contractor had been on site.
What are the key drivers for moving electronic?
When asked what were the key drivers to going electronic Krystal said we needed to be able to track contractors time on site more efficiently than we had been doing with the manual paper system, Krystal went on to say the manual paper based system was virtually impossible to use efficiently. When asked what Krystal liked most about the software Krystal explained she liked the ease of use for contractors, and the flexibility with all the different options available for use. Krystal also mentioned the help desk support is very prompt.
