Automation has become an accepted part of every day life – from the self-service checkouts in our supermarkets to the way in which you can now control your home heating from your mobile phone. Automation is a smart way to make processes smoother.
This technology is now being applied to airport pass offices who process thousands of applications for workers on an annual basis. Ensuring that all staff have the right access at the right time to the right areas of the airport is a crucial job and one which can be made more streamlined and efficient using automation.
There are new technologies out there, such as MTrust, which can also help to join up some of the dots and make the process even more valuable by connecting related processes in the airport for example validating a pass to work and providing access control at the same time.
The future for airports is definitely grounded in technology and automation will play a key role in this both for passengers and for staff. The work that is going on behind the scenes to ensure that your journey as a passenger remains as seamless as possible will continue to improve the day to day operations of the airport for its staff and visitors.
