FAA win sends Axios flying higher in America

FAA win sends Axios flying higher in America

The FAA is installing Axios’ assyst product on Help Desks in Oklahoma City supporting Desktop Office Automation, Mainframe Host (ICE-MAN), the Office of Information Technology's (AMI's) Systems Management Facility (SMF), and the Department of Transportation’s (DOT) financial accounting package. 


The software provides both client and web-based functionality including pagers, PDAs and Blackberries. 


Specific capabilities for the FAA are Service Desk, Incident Management, Problem Management, Asset and Configuration Management, Change Management, Service Level Management and metrics, Availability Management, Release Management, Service Continuity Management, Capacity Management, Financial Management and Knowledge tools 


Axios Systems’ software will replace three limited capability help desk software packages currently used by AMI's Customer Support Center (CSC). The CSC, which operates 24 hours a day and 365 days a year, supports over 25,000 DOT and FAA users worldwide. The assyst solution will also support the FAA's one-desktop-support consolidation initiative. 


Ailsa Symeonides, Sales and Marketing Director of Axios Systems, commented: “This significant new business is further proof that we have really taken off in North America. We are proud to be playing a part in continuing efforts to improve systems supporting the efficiency and safety of civil aviation in the US and are delighted to have the FAA on board our fast growing client list.” 


Axios Systems opened an office in the United States in 2001 and now runs its North American operations from Herndon, Virginia. The company also has offices in the UK, Australia, France, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Cyprus, and Canada.
