Enterprise quality SMS tool to facilitate internal communication at freight airline

TynTec, the enterprise quality mobile messaging operator, today announces that it has been selected by TNT Airways, the airline for the global logistics business TNT Express, to supply corporate SMS. Under the deal, TNT Airways will use TynTec’s eBizSMS™ suite to facilitate internal communications between head office, pilots and management globally.

With various fleets of aircraft and pilots dispersed globally, internal communication is a significant challenge for an airline like TNT Airways. Pilots will use the new SMS tool to register their flight arrival and departure times to indicate that they have fulfilled their statutory rest requirements. In addition, the system will be used to manage scheduling information for pilots and aircrew.

TNT Airways will use TynTec’s eBizSMS™ suite which offers users an intuitive, webmail like interface, making SMS communication simple and rapid from each desktop within TNT Airways. The company can schedule messages to be sent at the appropriate time to act as a reminder for pilots whilst they also make use of the full reply functionality, by which pilots can text information back to head office. TNT Airways selected TynTec’s enterprise quality SMS for its guarantee on message delivery and also the fact that all messages sent via eBizSMS™ can be tracked at any time.

TynTec delivers enterprise quality mobile messaging through its close relationship with mobile network operators such as Manx Telecom and Digicel Jamaica. TynTec’s deep level access (SS7) to the global mobile network means that it can offer secure, rapid and reliable messaging services. In addition, this also means that enterprises can access rich data from their SMS communications, such as delivery receipts and information on the status and area of the receiving phone. The guaranteed reliability and rapid delivery times are particularly important in a time and mission-critical situation such as air travel.

Michael Kowalzik, CEO of TynTec, said: “TNT Airways needed an efficient, reliable and easy to use method of communicating with a globally dispersed workforce and they found this in the enterprise quality SMS of TynTec. Using our eBizSMS suite, TNT Airways will be able to ensure that head office staff can communicate with pilots wherever they are in a quick and cost efficient manner without the need for costly new devices or re-training.”

Daniel Donnay, Flight Operations Director of TNT Airways, said: “At any time our crews and personnel are dispersed across multiple European and international destinations – we needed a tool that would enable us to keep in touch with them in a timely and cost efficient manner. SMS is the ideal solution – it doesn’t require new devices or extra training and the near ubiquity of GSM coverage means that it works almost anywhere.”
