ECONOMYNEXT – Sri Lanka’s two main international airports Bandaranayake International Airport (BIA) and Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport (MRIA), will run an enterprise resources planning (ERF) software from IFS, a Sweden based tech firm which has a development in the island, said.
The software will connect smaller airports owned and operated by the state-run Airports and Aviation Services of Sri Lanka (AASL).
“The completion of the first phase ensures seamless operations between airports across the country,” IFS said in a statement. “Multiple locations now work in synchronization, with back-end operational teams working in collaboration.
“This in turn enables management personnel to monitor the system centrally.
Shiraz Lye, IFS South Asia Managing Director said they aimed to deliver an outcome-based solution to support AASL “to ensure business continuity while adapting to the current changes in the economy.”
“With modernized business applications, we have a bird’s eye view of the operations of all locations with a click of a button. With its transparency and real-time data, we are now equipped to take up our next journey to reinforce economic growth,” G. A. Chandrasiri, Chairman, Airport and Aviation Services Sri Lanka, said.
