Enabling aviation organisations around the world to manage risk and continuously improve safety standards.

VISIUMAQD™ is an integrated, all-in-one safety and risk management software solution developed for the aviation industry.

Bringing together a comprehensive set of easy-to-use tools, it helps aviation organisations reduce risk to public and staff safety while also ensuring compliance with global safety standards.

VISIUMAQD™ assesses occurrence reports captured across an entire business, seeking out the root cause of any findings that are identified and then promoting an ongoing focus on corrective actions.

Not only does this process ensure that operators are continuously improving their safety and quality standards, it also enables them to maintain a world-class Safety Management System (SMS) that meets ICAO, IATA and National Airworthiness Authority guidelines.

Ultimately, VISIUMAQD™ helps airline operators to build a trusted brand and a profitable, sustainable business.

VISIUMAQD™ is used by over 100 customers worldwide, including leading international and regional airlines as well as airports, air traffic service providers, ground handlers and maintenance organisations.

Our key customers include Air Canada, Alaska Airlines, AviancaTACA, Cathay Pacific, China Airlines, COPA Iberia, Garuda, Gulf Air, jetBlue, LAN, Malaysian Airlines, Philippine Airlines, Qantas, Qatar Airways, Saudi Arabian Airline, Singapore Airlines, Swissport, LATAM, Turkish Airlines, Volaris and Westjet.

VISIUMAQD™ Features

An integrated solution

With VISIUMAQD™ there’s no need to purchase separate Safety, Quality and Risk Management software. AQD brings all of these elements together in a single, integrated solution.

VISIUMAQD™ incorporates risk-related activities spanning an entire aviation organisation, covering everything from occurrence reporting right through to investigations, auditing, proactive risk assessments and corrective action tracking.

Integrated solution

Accessible to all staff

VISIUMAQD’s system of web-based and offline information capture can be accessed by all staff across an entire organisation.

It provides a simple, direct and accurate process for submitting occurrence reports from the field to the relevant safety department. 

Accessible to all staff

Customisable reporting forms

On the basis that no two airlines are the same, VISIUMAQD™ offers our clients the option to customise the forms being used to input occurrence information.

The tool comes with a number of default reporting forms commonly used by aviation organisations, with users given the opportunity to either modify these forms or design new ones from scratch.

Customisable reports

Targeting the root cause, not the symptom

Instead of addressing the symptoms, VISIUMAQD™ targets the root causes of safety and quality problems.

Once root causes are identified, ongoing corrective and preventative actions can then be implemented to address the real issues, reducing the risk of recurrence and enabling a continuous improvement in safety and quality standards.

Targeting the root

VISIUMAQD™ Customer Quotes

Garuda Indonesia’s choice to go with AQD as its Safety Management System (SMS) is part of its effort to improve its safety quality. “In line with our long-term expansion program, and due to the fact that traffic volumes continue to increase, we are always committed to constantly improving our safety and complying with global flight safety standards.” Mr. Herupratomo said.

Mr. Herupratomo also said that AQD is widely used and recognised as a high quality product, and that as the program moves towards being completely browser-based, this will enable their staff right across the organisation to report incidents and be assigned corrective actions.

AQD reflects a real step forward for Cathay Pacific”. We have successfully used AQD for our quality audits for many years and now the timing is right for us to move to an integrated safety and quality database system. Most important we know that AQD is backed by aviation safety professionals who understand our requirements.

As a long-time partner of Superstructure Group, we have seen AQD mature to a web-based tool that provides us on-the-go accessibility to our system and serves as our platform to support SMS implementation and dozens of programs related to Safety, Compliance, and Operations through a number of departments.

The single database and common system aligns with our efforts to become a more standard airline and helps reduce costs with less complex IT maintenance requirements as well as a single access point and common methodology for retrieving all information relating to those programs, translating to time savings from resource-intensive querying to higher payback projects. Periodic reviews of other opportunities in the market have led us back to AQD as the most viable tool with best cost/benefit ratio. Conferences are a good opportunity to learn and share best practices with airlines from across the world in an open, friendly environment.

The risk management in an ISMS cannot be implemented successfully without suitable means; AQD has helped it come through. TAM Airlines has an advantage by having this important resource.

It is a good system which is easy to access. It allows you to customize your reports and provides a dashboard for easy management of tasks. AQD was chosen because of its potential to connect with data from other airlines, introducing the possibility of benchmarking.

We believe that AQD will reduce the hours spent collecting and classifying incident reports, freeing up staff to do more high-end work identifying risks and analysing risk trends.
