Dusseldorf Uses Sally-Mobile for Follow-Me

Dusseldorf Airport has started operating delair’s software solution ‘sally-mobile’ to plan assigning follow-me vehicles.
The software comprises a disposition system and a mobile display in the vehicle.  The disposition system automatically generates the orders for the follow-me vehicles on the basis of flightplan data.  Tablet computers are used as mobile system components which indicate the orders to be edited by the driver via the corresponding input.
The system can be operated by automatic generating and allocation of orders, or automatic generating of orders with autonomous takeover of orders by the drivers.  The latter is preferred by Dusseldorf.
Jorg Fruhner, the airport’s Project Manager, said:  “The convincing functionality of sally-mobile allowed us to take the system into operations without any problems.  The dispatchers as well as the drivers have accepted sally-mobile immediately from the beginning.”
Implementing sally-mobile may prompt manual planning, coordination and order transfer by the dispatcher to be dropped completely in order to assign time to other tasks by the dispatchers.
