iPort DCS is a role based system. This means that users have their own user ID, password and profile. To manage all these users, iPort Core features an extensive identity management tool. Also the AHM database is managed in an innovative way. Customers are no longer dependent on their DCS supplier for the input of AHM data, as they have direct access to the online database and their own set of data. Further useful features include the online management information reporting tool, flight messaging, and flight control with its smart flight monitor tool.

iPort Customer is the module that is used at airport check-in counters, where all users automatically see all active flights for their airport. From there on, the user dialogue is almost completely self explanatory. Select a flight, select passengers (type along functionality) and fill in the relevant fields. API and PSS data will automatically be requested if applicable. Boarding, standby handling and all other functions are one tab away. The application supports both a mouse driven interface as well as short cut keys.

Using smart concepts such as My Assigned Flights, the Flight Header and a W&B overview in combination with Flight Monitor allows a load controller to easily handle multiple flights simultaneously. Distributing load is a matter of ‘click & drop’. If a flight requires attention, an alert will pop up in the My flights list. Loadsheets can be printed or sent via ACARS, telex or e-mail. Passenger data is automatically imported from the passenger handling module. Load control has never been easier.

All components of the iPort Departure Control Suite share the same central software and database elements. This allows them to work seamlessly via all access channels. Since there is only one single point of truth for all iPort components, there is no need for synchronisation.
Web check-in helps an airline to reduce the strain and costs of airport handling. Every airline customer can use the iPort DCS web check-in facilities by framing in the iPort web pages in their website or to redirect to a separate web page to provide full transparancy to the traveller. The airline’s logos and styles can be used to blend in with the airline website. Boarding passes can be sent to various devices: printer, mobile phone or Apple’s passbook. Travellers can change their own seats and API data can be completed in advance.
The iPort web check-in pages are compliant with the WCAG 2.0 Level AA guidelines of W3C.
Specific software is developed to connect iPort DCS via IATA based CUSS kiosks. iPort CUSS is available on all CUSS kiosks that adhere to the IATA CUSS standards. The iPort CUSS application is web based and deployment is quick and simple. Passengers can select their seats, check in and print boarding passes and bag tags via an easy-to-use interface.
Travellers can check-in their baggage at an automated baggage drop off point. Baggage limits are stored in one central place and can be updated online by the customer.
iPort DCS is unique in offering an ancillary sales component that is fully integrated throughout all channels. Airport desk, web check-in, bagdrop and kiosk all run through the same central component, creating a consistent view for the traveller that allows sales of various items. The control over the type of items, pricing and other parameters can be fully managed by the airline. Prices can be differentiated by various criteria, such as route, sales channel, passenger type and more.
