Ozion Hosts Ground-Breaking Airport PRM Conference at Paris CDG

Ozion Hosts Ground-Breaking Airport PRM Conference at Paris CDG

On November 9th Ozion will host the Airport PRM Conference at Roissy Charles de Gaulle Airport.

The conference will be attended by professionals who oversee or run PRM services for airports and service providers who are looking to improve their PRM (1) operations by sharing their PRM challenges and solutions with their peers.

Paris CDG is an interesting case study: the airport took the strategic initiative of choosing the Ozion PRM Manager software solution while outsourcing PRM operations to 3 service providers at the same time. CDG is also special because it actually comprises 3 airports in one: a large airport (Air France’s Hub in terminal 2), a medium-sized airport (Terminal 2’s ABCD satellites) and a smaller airport (Terminal 1). Lastly, CDG has recently overseen what may be the largest implementation in the world of possibly the most complete and latest PRM-only Web enabled software solution to date.

The Conference will Address Three Questions 

  • What are the main PRM challenges for the primary parties involved: the airport (Passenger Services Director) and the provider (IT, Manager, Dispatchers and Agents)
  • What essential issues must a PRM application solve if it is to « tick the boxes » that really matter to PRM providers and the airport they serve
  • How well does the Ozion PRM Manager application overlap with the map of PRM operational needs

PRM Conference Overview

  • Presentation by the Paris CDG Airport head of Passenger Services in charge of PRM: «The challenges we face and why we decided to adopt Ozion PRM Manager»
  • Presentation by a PRM service provider at CDG: « How we use Ozion PRM Manager and to what extent does it cover our needs »
  • Highlights of the Ozion PRM Manager solution (15 minutes)
  • Lunch : interactive peer-to-peer workshops to discuss and list the main issues faced by PRM service providers and airports to agree on the focus of the forthcoming PRM Survey
  • Visit of Paris CDG PRM Dispatching Command Center
  • Cocktails : Of course !

About Ozion Airport Software

Ozion developed the Ozion PRM Manager SaaS application that Paris Aéroports (formerly ADP) chose to equip all the terminals at its two main Paris airports, Paris CDG and Orly. At Paris CDG, 3 different PRM providers covering different parts of the airport carry out just over a million PRM jobs a year.

Ozion only enters a new market to develop a powerful easy-to-use airport software if 6 criteria are met:

  • a large complex airport-related problem exists that can be solved by an application developed from scratch based on the interpretation of thorough client feedback
  • clients see a high value in an application that overcomes the complexity of the job they want to do
  • no application exists that addresses customer’s evolving set of needs and does so the way they want
  • opportunity to become market leader
  • the solution matters to Ozion’s international airport service provider and airport client base
  • obvious growth potential worldwide

Ozion also develops and sells the Ozion CheckPoint Manager SaaS application that is used by airports and their providers to:

  • accurately size their Passenger checkpoint (called « screening » in the USA) staffing needs
  • arbitrage with the airport in real time between reducing passenger queue times and adding extra staff
  • ensure every checkpoint operation is traceable and time-stamped while allowing the optimal use of available agents by using optimal dispatching
