SmartPref simply solves the Preferential Bidding System (PBS) dilemma by creating the world's only live and transparent bidding environment for both crewmembers and planners. SmartPref brings PBS into balance by providing a far better quality of life and work for crewmembers while delivering the world's most advanced parameter & rules controls for planners. In every case this speed and flexibility results in time and cost savings for the airline and better schedules for crewmembers.
See how you can bid LIVE with Real Time awareness, live interaction and control using SmartPref's Next Generation smart technologies. Use the simple Drag and Drop interface to modify bids from anywhere at anytime. Create multiple bids and see what is available at your seniority as you bid, as if the award were to be made NOW.
The world's fastest Preferential Bidding System means far more chouces and awareness for crews while solution speed creates cost savings and administrative awareness. Crews finally have the ability to see what they can achieve while they build their schedule. Crewmembers get the schedules they expect and the flexibility they deserve and need. Our Patent Pending continuous build method keeps the results current, while Hueristic processes build accurate and efficient Line Award solutions faster then any other Preferential Bidding System in the world.
Realtime rules and constraint control combined with our transparency solves award problems DURING bidding. Crews see all rules and parameters at all times. Between bid periods Planners can test the impact of assignments on the Award, Review open time, change credit limits, modify allocations with total visibility to all. Use the extra time and awareness between awards to make intelligent marketing changes.
SmartPref’s total transparency and immediate feedback gives bidders the freedom and confidence to know that even when bidding mistakes or miscalculations are made, they'll never suffer any negative consequences. No seniority inversions in SmartPref PBS. Bidding poorly, bidding incorrectly, not deep enough or illegally will NOT result in having to pay dearly by having to fly a poor line award the next month. Crewmembers build their lines and cannot bid incorrectly.
