Launch of a Product Line

Announcing ELP Reserve Product Line

We’re excited to introduce the ELP Reserve, a new product line that is currently comprised of 4 reserve tools: Reserves Available, Reserve List, Reserve Auto-Assign, and Reserve Self-Assign. All four work well independently, but work optimally when used in combination, and combine to protect operational integrity for now and in the future through automation and increased transparency; never get sidelined by staff shortages again as you rake in the savings.

We Know What it Takes

In terms of beasts, reserve is the trickiest of all- like a momma Grizzly in springtime. It is complex and impossible to nail down or predict. This aviation system more than any other will make or break an airline. Short-sighted, inefficient tools lead to poor reserve utilization and ultimately the breakdown of consistent staffing. How is it then, that such a critical component of an airline is still using outdated systems that can’t handle the unique staffing solutions airlines of today need? We wondered that too- but we couldn’t answer it, so we decided to solve it instead.

Still more predictable than staffing during a snowstorm

 That’s how we came up with our line of reserve products, all designed to fill the gaps in your current scheduling software. All 4 of our reserve solutions are built on a foundation of transparency to take the pressure off of your people while insuring they stay in the loop.

Short-Sighted No More

Common practice insists that your team focuses on today often at the expense of future operations. Rushed decisions and non-optimal utilization have a domino effect that leads to an eventual breakdown of staffing levels and the timely running of your airline.

No more. Our reserve suite of products understands that while now is important in its own right, it’s also critical for setting the tone for later. Automation and increased visibility optimize your scheduling department which in turn helps them react better- sometimes even proactively- to situations that arise and are able to maintain adequate levels of reserves throughout the month.

Without further ado, we’ll let our tools speak for themselves:

For the Now- Reserves Available/Reserve List

Reserves Available is a tool that helps you today; it ingests your raw data, and sorts available reserves within a certain footprint in a proper order- one that automatically refreshes every 2 minutes to ensure that only available reserves appear in the call-out list. In that same vein Reserve List keeps your crewmembers informed with incredible accuracy.

For the Future- Reserve Auto-Assign

Now that you have present day sorted, why not look ahead? Reserve Auto-Assign enables scheduling to finally operate with acknowledgement that every scheduling decision they make affects a future one. With RAA they are able to view a report that looks ahead up to 7 days, and automatically pairs the various open pairings with the most optimal reserves based on contractual obligations and reserve variables. This tool can then be used to assign automatically into your CMS, based on your level of comfort.

Bring it Home- Reserve-Self Assign

If you really want the full scope of convenience, this one is for you. With the Reserve Self-Assign module of ELP’s CrewPortal, Open Time can be advertised to your crews based on your contractual obligations. Your reserve crews can bid, be awarded, and assigned in your CMS (based on your chosen level of automation) all with one click of a button. No phone calls or manual processes.

This module can be used by itself or as a companion to the Reserve Auto-Assign, where trips that are flagged as unassigned are automatically dropped into your CrewPortal and are then available for Open Time pickup. Once a crew member requests a trip, you can also decide if you want to assign it manually in your CMS or automatically depending on your comfort level.
