Mountains and Mountains of Spreadsheets


The Wrong Technology for the Job at Hand. Time-Consuming Manual Processes.

Using desktop publishing or spreadsheet applications results in hard-to-manage duplicated data spanning hundreds of pages. Maintaining standards and consistency in documents is nearly impossible with the free format nature of off-the-shelf office software tools. Every update requires excessive time to ensure the diagrams reflect continuity with packing details for the requested changes. The sheer volume of data means errors are commonplace and cause consumers of the reports to either question changes or make their assumptions.


The Right Tool Really does Make a Difference

With Paxia Galleys, Galley Load Plan documents are transformed through the availability of various automated industry standard reports. Using the centralized Parts Catalog and Container Catalog, you can make changes in a fraction of the time previously taken, speeding up the ability to react to market changes.

Dealing with Legacy Systems


You Can’t be Productive Utilizing Obsolete Software

Using the same-old, same-old galley planning solution that is at its end-of-life results in loss of productivity, increased costs, and a ton of manual processes. There is no hope for reinvestment to keep the technology up to date—for example, a planning tool like Visio results in a highly labor-intensive approach to galley planning. What’s more, it can use out-of-date data management techniques.


Improve Efficiencies for Tasks that Take Minutes Instead of Hours

With Paxia Galleys, you instantly gain significant improvements in the data management approach, so much so that the equivalent business changes take minutes instead of days compared to a legacy system. The high-quality report output from Paxia Galleys is recognized as the industry standard and has shown significant efficiencies and opportunities for cost savings.

Eliminate duplication with centralized parts and container catalogs
As opposed to an item/part or container appearing 100 times on 100 pages across a range of Office documents, Paxia Galleys uses a single instance that would be linked to the equivalent 100 locations in the software. A change to the item/part or container in the centralized parts or container catalogs is applied to every occurrence of that entity within the galley plans in a single move.

Get the ability to make changes quickly and release to market
Changes to galley plans use a range of time-efficient processes and tools to implement and evaluate changes that meet requirements such as equipment balancing. Reports are generated using the latest versions of the data, on-demand by your vendors, and without any airline intervention.

Enjoy a structured change management workflow and version control
Galley load plans and contents are controlled by version numbering with effective/end dates in conjunction with a draft or published status. Data cannot be changed without publishing a new version with a future effective date, triggering communication to end users that there is a new version.

Get instant global access to published data
A web-based portal provides instant access to published content when the publish button is pressed. Access caterer loading plans for stations and print a complete set of the airline’s published flight loading instructions from the portal. You can also view read-only access to container & parts catalogs and obtain labels listing flight number, departure time, stowage position, galley, and packing contents for each flight.

View and review a wide variety of system-generated reports
Over 200 pre-defined reports can be generated from within the system. Data continuity between the reports is error-free because the same data source is being queried differently. For example, galley diagrams, packing plans, and items inventory will all reflect the same data, albeit in different data structures and levels of detail.

Get simplified data analysis for decision support
With the data being stored in a database, data required for analysis can be easily extracted using various export formats and interfaces readily available from the system. Data is filtered on end-user requirements and generated in CSV / XLSX or XML from most pre-defined system reports. Large exports are managed by batch servers and generated behind the scenes to avoid impacting the user experience.

Eradicate equipment balancing issues
Equipment balancing is notoriously challenging at the best of times. Without a system and the tools to quickly cross-check inventory flowing in and out of a station, it can be nearly impossible to get correct. The system provides several time-saving approaches for analyzing inventory movements and supporting and pre-empting problems due to incorrect deadheading decisions.
