Zulu has added a Crew routing solver to create schedules that are “crew-friendly” early in the planning process. This saves a tremendous amount of time and prevents problems counterproductive changes that can happen in separate silos.
Crew System Integration » Zulu can be quickly integrated with your existing Crew system using an API interface or standard file transfer of information.
Crew Planning, Training and Qualifications » The new module (in development) is a rules-based engine that is flexible for the specific work rules of each AOC / crew contract. Planners need to view and edit crew schedules to assure coverage and the most efficient utilization for the planned schedule. Pairing and rostering needs to take crew training and qualifications into account along with the work rules.
Crew Tracking » Airlines need a great Crew Tracking system for viewing, updating and administrating Crew Schedules as things change. These include real-time disruptions in addition to crew legality checking and reserves assignments. Current systems struggle to handle the message volume or auditing for pay that modern airlines require.
