Managing Director: V. K. Mathews
The IBS Group (IBS) is a leading IT solutions provider to the global Travel, Transportation and Logistics (TTL) industry. A specialist in the domain, IBS is SEI CMM Level-5 assessed, ISO 9001:2000 and TickIT certified, and operates software production and competence development centres at Trivandrum and Cochin in India. IBS offers a range of software products that manage mission-critical operations of major airlines, airports, oil and gas companies and seaports world-wide. Services offered by IBS include software development, business and technology consulting, turnkey solutions, customer support services and application maintenance.

Founded in 1997, IBS started business operations by providing turnkey solutions addressing specific areas of airline operations. Over time this included flight operations/scheduling, passenger reservations, departure control, airport resource management, airport ground handling, air cargo terminal handling, ULD management, airline revenue accounting, mail tracking, port management, voyage management, helicopter scheduling and personnel tracking for a range of clients.

In 2002 IBS acquired TopAir, a versatile and fully integrated flight management solution, from EDS, as part of a strategic initiative to develop a complete operational solution that would cater to the varying needs of small and medium-sized scheduled/charter airlines. This product is currently used by ten airlines, all operating out of Europe.

In September 2003, IBS acquired Avient Technologies, a business unit within Honeywell International. The products thus acquired further expanded IBS' portfolio of offerings to the air transportation industry. Avient Solutions is IBS' global centre of excellence for flight operations and provides integrated solutions and services for airline/airport operations. IDAHO an advanced airport management system is currently operational at London's Heathrow and Gatwick, two of the world's busiest airports. IDAHO in an enhanced form has recently been chosen by the British Airports Authority for managing airport operations at Heathrow's new Terminal 5.

The technology and business domain competence acquired in the last eight years, has resulted in IBS taking the initiative to develop two next-generation products, both meant to replace more expensive and less flexible legacy systems currently in use in the air transportation industry. These new-generation products (among a number of other products offered by IBS) are:

" aiRES, (formerly known as iRes) a comprehensive integrated Passenger Services System being developed in business collaboration with Cendant TDS. IBS has recently announced that WestJet, the No. 2 Canadian airline, has entered into a multi-year agreement for the implementation of aiRES.

" iCargo, an airline Cargo Management System that supports the needs of the entire cargo/logistics chain from shipper to consignee. This product will include industry best practices and comprehensive functionality, validated by a Core Group of Influence (CGI), consisting of Air New Zealand Cargo, South African Airways Cargo, Gulf Air and Qantas Freight. The first release of iCargo is slated for December 2005.

Yet another major initiative by IBS is the development of iLogistics, a first of its kind, state-of-the-art solution designed to manage and optimise the upstream logistics operations of oil and gas companies. This product also enables like-minded companies to share their logistics resources. Shell International Exploration and Production (SIEP) has entered into a long-term agreement with IBS for the implementation of iLogistics in most of its operating companies world-wide. The other major products of IBS include SmartCargo, iFly, iPort, iMacs, CTS, MCS and RSMS.

The clientele of IBS includes major corporations like Shell International, BP, Orbitz, Emirates, Cathay, Qantas, Swiss, WestJet, Air Canada, Qatar Airways, SITA, EDS, Heathrow & Gatwick Airports, Sharjah Port, and DNATA.

To meet IBS' aggressive growth targets, IBS has ramped up operations with the opening of a centre at Cochin, India. This centre, IBS' sixth in the world and second in India, was formally inaugurated in October 2005 by Oommen Chandy, Chief Minister of Kerala. IBS and its group companies operate out of USA (Atlanta), Europe (London/Zurich), Middle East (Dubai), Asia-Pacific (Sydney) and India (Trivandrum and Cochin).
