Software developer Zafire has launched the latest version of its FirstBag baggage reconciliation software (BRS) at Passenger Terminal Expo 2017 in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
With IATA 753 compliance a major discussion point at this year’s Expo, Zafire’s FirstBag BRS solution offers operators a feature-rich bag management and reconciliation application that provides baggage tracking from departures to arrivals, and transfers between terminals. FirstBag supplies airports, airlines and ground handlers with end-to-end real-time baggage data, enabling them to make effective decisions and reduce mishandled baggage.
Zafire has been working on Resolution 753 from its conception and is a long-term member of the IATA Baggage Group. The company is confident that its fully compliant solution will result in enhanced operational efficiency with full integration and real-time data sharing between previously disconnected systems.
Some of the new features of the latest version of FirstBag BRS include: integrated BRS departure, transfers and arrivals functionality; a mobile app for the baggage handlers for use on any mobile device; push alerts, using the FirstBag mobile app; integrated FirstConX mobile tug driver app, keeping record of change of custody/location of the transfer bags between terminals; Message Gateway, allowing easy setup and exchange of baggage information (BPMs/BMMs) with other airlines/systems; the AUTO Reflighting module, automating the process of handling bags that have missed their flight; Transfer Optimization module, which improves the efficiency and accuracy of baggage movement, vehicle tracking and resource planning, minimizing the impact on service levels; improved SLA monitoring and analysis reports; and the passenger mobile app.
