The David B. O'Maley College of Business has implemented state-of-the-art aviation and transportation software and platforms, including Sabre Solutions and Amadeus Reservation Systems, into the Intelligent Aviation and Transportation Platforms Lab.
Embry-Riddle is one of the few educational institutions with direct access to these platforms and real-time data from airlines. Students use these systems to gain hands-on experiences with software used directly by industry.
The College of Business uses Sabre Solutions software for teaching and research. Sabre, the leading provider of software solutions for the airline industry, provides the College with access to their scheduling, profit, and fleet management modules.
Students can model and design airlines, networks, and fleets. The software allows students to examine various analyses on scheduling and planning, so they can evaluate their best options for profitability and use of resources, all of which are skills valued by industry.
The College also provides access to the Amadeus Reservation Systems, a traveler life cycle management technology. The system has a global impact since it operates in 195 countries. The College of Business has access to Central Reservation Systems, which spans all transportation modes (airlines, trains, ships, and cruises), hotels, and rental car companies. These systems are extensively used by these industries throughout the world.
