Amadeus Airport Common Use Service

Amadeus Airport Common Use Service

Amadeus Airport Common Use Service (ACUS) represents a leap forward in common use platforms. Leveraging cloud technology to deliver application virtualisation, ACUS brings greater business agility, operational resilience, scalability and flexibility to make passenger processing more efficient than ever before. 
 
ACUS is a highly-competitive, next-generation common use solution, which enables passenger processing systems to be accessed and deployed anywhere, on demand (both within and outside the airport terminal). ACUS is also fast and easy to implement and can be used on a PC, laptop or mobile device, once a secure network connection is in place.
 
Our common use platform also contributes to achieving substantial cost savings, by eliminating the need for costly on-site servers and ongoing maintenance, as well as reducing energy costs. Providing airports, airlines and ground handlers with a complete end-to-end solution, ACUS is fully scalable and can be adapted to your unique business needs.
 
Key benefits
  • Reduce your operating costs: simplify and eliminate the need for costly on-site server infrastructure, local data centres and IT maintenance, and realise substantial energy savings.
  • Gain "real" business agility: deploy and relocate operations rapidly and seamlessly, anywhere on and off the airport, using a secure network connection (from fixed or mobile workstations). Respond efficiently to any irregular operations and “peaks” in passenger flow.
  • Scale your business: increase capacity rapidly with activation on demand using the Software as a Service (SaaS) model. Scalable to any size airport, airline and ground handler.
  • Increase your operational resilience: reduce reliance on expensive, traditional “bricks & mortar” infrastructure by using applications which are virtually hosted and remotely managed from our secure data centre.
  • Deploy quickly and easily with a simple network connection.
