The thing is, audits could potentially save your airline time, money, and even your bottom line. They help you view your business as the sum of a whole- think an out-of-body experience but for your company. Regular or even semi-regular audits can help you view your expenditures and profits holistically, and help you manage (or perhaps even eliminate) redundant or ineffective procedures.
They are the codebreakers when it comes to telling you the “why” behind your results, and understanding that is the key to keeping what works and removing what doesn’t.
Isolating what’s working can then help you build on that success and translate it to other areas and teams.
Audits also help you maintain more accurate records, assuming you store them in an organized manner. This accessibility saves you even more time and having everything you need all in one place means you’re able to find that one receipt management is asking for with no problem.
Automated audits are a crucial part of our CrewPay software for the exact reasons above, and having everything sorted helps our customers feel more confident walking into a union grievance hearing or a contract negotiation.
When running an airline, it’s important to check in with your people, but also with your software. The trends you find are essentially roadmaps along your ultimate route of success- so heed their direction.
