Press Release
Air India SATS Airport Services selects Kale to host Its servers.

Mumbai, 05 August 2008: Air India SATS Airport Services (AI SATS), a joint venture between National Aviation Company of India Limited (NACIL) - the Indian national carrier, and Singapore Airport Terminal Services (SATS) - Singapore’s leading airport ground handling company, has chosen Kale Consultants Limited to supply, install and manage the server hardware and software to host the applications that support its operations at the new Bangalore and Hyderabad International Airports.

Kale will help to procure, set up and manage all the server hardware and software, network components and leased lines. This arrangement helps to take away the burden of managing the data center operation, and allows AI SATS to focus on its core competencies - in providing ground handling services to its airline and freight forwarder customers.

Mr. Ranjiv Ramanathan, Senior Vice President, AI SATS Cargo said: “In keeping with our commitment to delivering professional services to our customers, we have sourced for a vendor who can help ensure that our server infrastructure is well managed to meet the needs of our operations and our future growth. Kale has been selected through an elaborate Request for Proposal (RFP) process.”

Mr. Sumeet Nadkar, Head - Logistics SBU, Kale Consultants Ltd. said, “We are very pleased that AI SATS has selected Kale for this engagement. Kale’s domain expertise and wide range of offerings makes it the ideal partner for IT infrastructure management. I am sure that AI SATS will derive tremendous value from this engagement.”

He further added, “Our vision is to be the end-to-end Technology Partner for organizations in the Airline, Logistics and Travel space and this deal is another defining step in the right direction. We believe that our customers need not look beyond us for their technology needs including applications and IT infrastructure.”

Kale’s infrastructure management solution is based on hub and spoke methodology whereby the customer does not need to replicate the IT infrastructure at every new location that they operate from. The solution also provides world-class services in a cost efficient manner using the “best of breed” approach. It will be expensive for our customers to create secured IT infrastructure and replicate the same across the different locations. Kale utilizes economies of scale from several partners, which translates into best-fit solutions for our customers.

Kale also provides IT infrastructure consulting for airport modernization and has several applications developed for airport operators that help them automate their end-to-end business processes. Kale will utilize its extensive experience in the international aviation industry to help airports deliver superior value to their customers.
