Greenwood Village, Colorado, July 23, 2013 – Professional Resources In System Management, LLC (PRISM), proudly announces the success of its partnership with the USAIG Performance Vector program. Since joining the program in April 2012, PRISM has welcomed 40 fixed and rotary wing USAIG insured operators as subscribers to their highly regarded Safety Management System program.
USAIG, a global leader in aviation insurance underwriting, developed the Performance Vector program to deliver valuable, forward-looking safety support to USAIG-insured operators of turbine aircraft. PRISM’s partnership in the Performance Vector program allows USAIG policyholders to subscribe to PRISM Essential or PRISM Professional at no charge for the first year of their subscription. Additionally, PRISM offers a significant discount to operators when they renew the subscription with PRISM through the Performance Vector program.
"We are thrilled at our policyholders' enthusiastic response to PRISM services being available through our Performance Vector initiative,” said David L. McKay USAIG President and CEO. “PRISM’s unique tools allow its users to leverage the most from their Safety Management Systems and reinforce their safety culture through their active use. That's a good thing for all of us!"
“PRISM’s relationship with USAIG and the participation in their Performance Vector program has provided aircraft operators with an even more affordable solution for their SMS needs,” stated Chris Young, PRISM Vice President Helicopter Services. “USAIG understands the value of SMS and the Performance Vector program enables operators to enhance their operational safety while saving money.”
“We are proud to have reached such a significant milestone in our first year as a USAIG Performance Vector partner,” said Steve Witowski PRISM Vice President Business Aviation Services. “As continual evolution is key to a successful SMS, PRISM’s SMS Solution continues to evolve with offerings that support an operator’s safety program no matter what stage they are at. The PRISM ARMOR software is easy to use, has incredible capabilities from your laptop or mobile device, and is accessible through the internet from any location around the world. The Performance Vector program offers operators the ability to invest into the industry’s leading SMS solution at an unbelievable value.”
PRISM’s SMS solutions are specifically tailored to assist all aircraft operators – from single aircraft operators to the largest flight department – to plan, effectively implement and manage their SMS. The program is aligned with the International Civil Aviation Organization’s “Four Pillars of Safety Management” concept and is fully compliant with the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO). PRISM’s SMS solutions are uniquely designed help operators effectively meet the increasing challenges created by emerging regulations and standards while also facilitating safe and efficient flight and ground operations.
Performance Vector programs meet aviation regulatory requirements, accreditation protocols and industry standards such as FAA, IS-BAO, NBAA’s Certified Aviation Manager program, and ICAO. Eligibility for additional Performance Vector services refreshes upon each policy renewal. Flexible, web-based delivery works with, rather than against, busy schedules to help meet the training goals of modern flight departments.
