This contractor has knowledge of and experience with the existing workflows, processes, and customizations of the software specific to Aviation IS which gives them unique qualifications. They have deep knowledge of this platform as well as significant understanding of Aviation IT’s operations and needs and can provide expert consulting, guidance and solutions for system and process improvements specific to Aviation IS. The Aviation IS supports approximately 500 internal City employees and approximately 75 airport business partners through its shared tenant services program. Failure to continue using this software system would leave the airport without a reliable system for tracking work orders and service requests, and with no system for tracking key metrics to drive improvements.
