Headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, United Airlines serves as one of the largest commercial airlines in the world. While maintaining a workforce of over 84,000 employees and a fleet of more than 850 aircraft, United Airlines also provides immense passenger service with thousands of flights to over 350 global airports daily.

The Airport Operations Safety Leadership team at United Airlines often finds it useful to access raw data on employee injuries and aircraft damages on demand. However, the team is currently unable to access data in a timely manner during key conversations. This information is also not accessible on mobile devices.

Our Data on Demand App delivers raw data to the fingertips of Airport Operations Safety Leadership via a robust mobile website.

Airport Operations Safety Leadership can quickly access the website and select the desired data domain, either injuries or damages, to initiate their analysis. Upon choosing a data domain, the user can provide filterable conditions regarding the occurrence, such as a date range, a location, and the status of investigations. This enables Airport Operations Safety Leadership to immediately view the total number of incidents accordingly.

In search of more information on specific incidents, the user can click the resulting figure indicating the total number of occurrences, and a table of incidents with deeper information corresponding to the figure is displayed. The user can share this data along with the associated filter options via email.

With our system in place, United Airlines can ensure and maintain a safer workplace environment for its employees.

Our Data on Demand App is written in ReactJS, an open-source Java Script framework. The data is being accessed via a REST API, which is developed using Node.js.
