'S-HERTOGENBOSCH, The Netherlands, Sept. 17, 2013 /CNW/ - Copenhagen Airports, the operator of the busiest airport hub in the Nordic region, has announced that it is now using Quintiq to plan its workforce.
Copenhagen Airport (CPH) with its 140 destinations and more than 60 airlines handled over 23,3 million passengers last year. Quintiq, a global leader in supply chain planning and optimization, has provided a single integrated software platform to optimize the planning of CPH's workforce, comprising 2.100 staff.
Quintiq replaces multiple legacy systems that were previously used by CPH. The first phase of the Quintiq software implementation has recently gone live and will enable the airport operator to make more efficient use of its workforce. CPH has begun using Quintiq's Workforce Planning application to manage staff rostering and task assignments. In addition to managing union and Danish labor rules, the new system will enable greater transparency and visibility in workforce planning across CPH's 11 departments.
The next phase of the Quintiq software implementation is currently underway at CPH. It includes the deployment of a mobile application, integration with SAP Payroll, and the automation of key planning tasks.
"Using multiple systems to roster staff in 11 departments and plan their assignments was a very complex process. We chose Quintiq's application as it offers greater visibility and flexibility for handling real-time events, particularly with its mobile application," says Kristian Durhuus, COO of Copenhagen Airports.
"Airports and air navigation service providers use Quintiq solutions to manage over half the world's airspace," said Arjen Heeres, COO of Quintiq. "Being selected by the largest airport operator in northern Europe further reinforces our position as the leading solution provider for the aviation sector. We're pleased to partner with Copenhagen Airport to help optimize their workforce planning process."
