Blackpool International Selects Rostima

October 2008:  Rostima, the world leader in Enterprise Workforce Management solutions to the global transport sector has announced that Regional and City Airports (RCA), the airports operation and ownership division of Balfour Beatty, owners of Blackpool International and Exeter International airports, has chosen Rostima software to optimise workforce management processes. Enterprise Plus by Rostima allows for the import of flight schedules to define the workload across various departments in relation to the inbound/outbound flights (customer demand). It enables users to quickly and objectively build demand requirements which form the basis of employee roster creation. Working within the current rostering rules, Rostima aims to give the best possible coverage at the least possible cost, whilst ensuring that working practices are fulfilled.

Blackpool International is the regional airport for Lancashire and the Lake District, handling approximately 500,000 passengers to and from over 25 European destinations.
Rostima’s Leave Planner, Duty Manager and Scheduler tools have been initially implemented across 6 departments consisting of approximately 150 employees. The software will enable the airport to achieve unprecedented business benefits through significant labour cost efficiencies and improved customer service. 
Graham Pugh, Planning and Scheduling Co-ordinator for Blackpool International said: “The Rostima system has met our requirements in terms of ease of use and functionality and has ultimately enabled us to improve staff planning whilst reducing costs. This will assist us in taking the business forward in what is at the moment, a competitive and challenging industry.”
Steve Moore, CEO of Rostima commented: “We are delighted that RCA has chosen Rostima. This agreement further demonstrates Rostima’s unique position and brand strength within the transportation market”.
