10 reasons why you should consider integrating an Azure cloud-based platform for your ground handling operations management

Aviation industry is not quite out of the woods yet, but there are signs of recovery. Airports, airlines, and ground operations service providers are already working on the next challenges that they need to address. But how can they be sure to be ready to handle efficiently this 'expected' big return to activity with the start up again of international traffic flows and the surge of a high level of passengers.

Cloud-based platforms such as Wiseleap allow you to manage your ground handling operations the easiest way possible while ensuring flexibility, cost-efficiency, automatic upgrades and updates, quick deployment capabilities, and enhanced security.

Here are 10 advantages of integrating an Azure cloud-based solution:

1. Centralize all your ground handling operations

2. Scalable

The cloud allows you to evolve your platform according to your growth rate, to add new applications, new features and to remain future-ready. Azure cloud allows you to build and scale all your applications without constraint to meet your organization’s needs over time.

3. Accessible at anytime from anywhere

A cloud-based SaaS solution will usually be more cost-effective than an on-premises one. You don’t have to make a significant capital investment to purchase software on day one. The cost is based on your usage metrics, such as users or portals, so you only pay for actual usage of your cloud application. This means that cloud-based solutions are normally more cost-effective in the short term. In the long term, you also don’t have to pay for maintenance, upkeep, and support so you’ll never be charged huge upgrade costs in the future.
