Jan. 20, 2013 - PRLog -- NorthWest Data Solutions, (NWDS), maker of SMS Pro™, a best-selling aviation safety software system, announces that SMS texting is now offered to airlines and airports using SMS Pro's hazard reporting software.

For five years, SMS Pro™ email notifications ( have been notifying safety managers of reported aviation incidents and accidents from employees and stakeholders. Both internal and external auditors also submit safety issues that are included in the email notifications. Being notified by SMS (short messaging service) will alert safety managers who are not able to receive emails, such as when they travel outside the range of their ISP.

Currently, when employees or customers report an aviation accident or incident, safety managers are immediately notified so they can perform risk management activities. Reported aviation accidents and incidents enter the airline and airport safety management software systems either from Web based reporting forms, email or third party software integration.

Short Message Service (SMS) is also called Simple Messaging Service. SMS is a text messaging service component of phone, web, or mobile communication systems allowing exchanges of short text messages between fixed line or mobile phone devices. Roman Mikheev, aviation safety technology professional, states that "allowing text messages to communicate incoming hazards to safety managers furthers the abilities of SMS Pro's Web based safety management capabilities." Mr. Mikheev also indicated that SMS Pro™ staff is exploring technologies to also enable automated voice calling using text transcription services.

SMS Pro™ has frequently been called the most complete aviation safety management software solution with over 60 modules as of early 2013. Their list of modules continues to grow as their customers demand that their aviation safety management software ( includes functionality that goes beyond the scope of ICAO mandated SMS principles.
