Fujitsu-GlobeRanger has entered into a strategic collaboration with Switlik Survival Products, a market leader and worldwide supplier of inflatable safety and survival gear for aviation, marine and military customers.

GlobeRanger’s Emergency Equipment Management (EEM) application has been adapted to Switlik products to simplify the ability to inspect and verify the configuration of critical, life-saving safety equipment – allowing airlines to manage and maintain safety equipment to a much greater degree of accuracy, while reducing time and costs by up to 99%. Using digital, leading edge technologies such as IoT, RFID, mobile and sensors, this solution also elevates airline’s inventory management capabilities, providing transparency into the lifecycle – allowing for greater scalability and predictability.

This partnership combines Switlik’s vaunted, 97-year heritage of safety, compliance and quality in Aviation with GlobeRanger’s industry leading IoT technology to offer the market a unique solution.

Businesses are rapidly undertaking Digital Transformation to become more competitive in an increasingly disrupted marketplace. GlobeRanger’s solutions help our customers get ahead of the curve by quickly solving real challenges, allowing for more human and financial capital to be freed up for innovation.

“As we see the demands of the aviation market changing in today’s digital enabled world, this partnership represents a significant opportunity for both organisations to bring a regulatory accepted, end-to-end proposition to market,” said Dennis Badman, Head of GlobeRanger. Our combined solution introduces RFID technology to help simplify and streamline existing business processes and deliver real and measurable business value to airlines.”

Stanley Switlik, CEO of Switlik, comments: “We are delighted to have entered into this partnership with Fujitsu-GlobeRanger and see it as a great opportunity to be able to offer significant-added value to our airline customers and at the same time expand our reach in the commercial aviation life jacket market via a best-in-class, unified life vest/RFID offering.”
