London Oxford Airport has adopted Centrik as its operational management system, playing an invaluable role in assisting the airport to join a select club of IS-BAH Stage II accredited support operations.

The cloud-based operational management system makes it easy to evidence operational compliance to auditors and regulators – an instrumental factor in London Oxford Airport securing the accreditation, held by just a handful of business aviation support operations across the globe.

The airport – which handles more than 36,000 aircraft movements a year – has found the system has transformed its management by integrating every aspect of airport operations into a single real-time platform.

Dolores Sardina, Compliance and Standards Manager, London Oxford Airport, says: “Centrik provides us with minute-by-minute management of Safety, Health and Safety, Quality, HR, GDP and Environmental Management systems – and it’s transformed our operations, because all these areas are now integrated into a single system.”

As a result, Centrik has greatly simplified document control, process reporting, tracking and monitoring of all activities at the airport, including management of third-party suppliers and contractors.

The system also assists with operational compliance, thanks to its ability to integrate and interlink all findings, follow-ups and actions – enabling management to see at the click of a button everything that happens on site and how it is being handled.

Based on the success of the system to date, Centrik is developing a new bespoke module for the airport designed to provide management of equipment maintenance.
