Bond - Training Management System
Bond Offshore Helicopters provide energy support and search
and rescue services to a range of companies in the offshore
oil and gas industry.
Bond had an existing database application written in Microsoft
Access that held key information on their pilots and the training
they had undertaken.
Although previously adequate for their needs the existing
application had become obsolete meaning it was difficult to support
and make changes. In addition, the application had become very slow
and accessing information had become frustrating and inefficient
for users. For these reasons Bond decided the time was right to
replace the application.
Codify developed a new web-based application that included
enhancements and additional functionality compared to the previous
system. This provided Bond with a system that met their new
requirements and legislation.
Bond asked for the user interface to be similar to that of the
existing application as users were happy and familiar with its
layout. This resulted in minimal training as users easily
transitioned from one to another.
The replacement application is web based which means, unlike the
old Access application, Bond does not have to install it onto each
individual PC and it can be accessed remotely.
The new Training Management System has brought Bond a number of
- Fast and reliable application
- Changes can be made quickly and easily
- Simple training checks and management
- Minimal training with excellent user adoption
- Workflow and calculated fields has automated processes and
- It integrates with other applications such as HeliPlan used for
Captain Steve Godfrey, Head of Training at Bond, explains, "The
rewrite of the Training Management System has been a great
success. We can now add new features and modifications when
required and the performance of the system is excellent. The
support team at Codify are fantastic and always keep us up to date
