SMS Pro™ is represented world-wide by SMS Partners. SMS Partners are often directly linked to their respective regulatory agencies and keep their fingers on the pulse of changing environmental issues.
SMS Pro™ has been in production since January 2008. Since then, airports, charter airlines, biz-jet operators and medical transport companies have been audited many times. Auditors are always impressed with operators using SMS Pro™. However, SMS Pro™ is NOT an SMS. To be effective, you have to get the entire organization involved with your aviation safety program.
NWDS also manages the “Aviation Safety Management Systems” group on LinkedIn. SMS discussions and announcements are made using this social networking tool. This group currently has more than 900 members in the airlines industry. Members are screened to exclude marketers and recruiters. Enhancements and new features are also discussed using this group.
NWDS also belongs to the world-wide VSO group (Virtual Safety Office), of which SMS Pro™ plays a key role. Members represented are from Australia, Europe, Latin America and the United States. VSO participants also drive development of SMS Pro™.
