SAS Institute Inc. Key Developments

SAS Launches New Oslo Vilnius Route

On 29 October 2015 Scandinavian airlines SAS launches a new Oslo Vilnius route. SAS passengers will be offered four weekly flights on this route: on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays. During the last few years economic partnership between Norway and Lithuania was rapidly developing and has gained significant momentum: currently there are over 200 Norwegian capital companies in Lithuania that employ over 11 000 people. Growing business cooperation between the two countries became major encouragement to SAS for opening a new route Oslo - Vilnius. For the start, the company will offer passengers four weekly flights, while in the future the company might increase the frequency. At the break of this year, i.e. during the winter holidays season, SAS was operating direct flights between Oslo and Vilnius. This route was particularly popular among Lithuanian emigrants living and working in Norway. This became yet another reason for opening the new SAS route between these two capital cities. SAS passengers from Vilnius will have convenient connections via Oslo to other Norwegian cities such as Bergen, Bodo, Evenes, Haugesund, Molde, Stavanger, Trondheim, Tromso, and others. Flights between the Norwegian and Lithuanian capital cities will be operated by Boeing 737-700 offering 141 seats.

SAS Signs an Agreement with the Norwegian Pilot Union

SAS has signed a new modern collective bargain agreement with the Norwegian pilot union NSF. The negotiations have reached its objective after a strike that lasted for seven days and involved 17 pilots. SAS has now agreed with all of its pilot unions on new collective bargain agreements that create conditions for future expansion. Job security, reduced complexity and SAS need to act faster in relation to the market's demand have been central parts in the negotiations for a new collective bargain agreement with the pilot unions during this spring. The Norwegian pilot union NSF signed the agreement as the last of the pilot unions and the agreement is now subject to a member voting.

SAS Institute and Toshiba Global Commerce Solutions Partner for Retail Customer Analytics

SAS Institute recently struck an agreement with Toshiba Global Commerce Solutions to equip retailers with analytics capabilities, providing them with customer insights at the point of sale (POS). With retail customer analytics, merchants will be able to make sense of the big data available about their customers and better understand how their customers shop, offering up opportunities to better serve them regardless of the channel. By integrating SAS retail customer analytics with Toshiba's retail promotions and loyalty management systems (hardware and software combinations), the renowned business analytics expert will enable retailers to provide near real-time personalized services to their customers. Specifically, through sophisticated SAS retail business intelligence (BI) software offerings such as SAS Visual Analytics and SAS Visual Statistics embedded into Toshiba loyalty management in-store POS systems, SAS will provide retailers with the means to make sense of the all customer data available to them. Through near real-time data visualization and recommendations, retailers could glean the insights to better recognize and react to trends about their customers' shopping behaviors and habits, allowing them to quickly and more effectively identify opportunities to satisfy their customers and meet their needs. At the base implementation, my understanding is that no SAS professional services are required. However, this solution is delivered through Toshiba and its Professional Services group so they might provide those services as necessary. This is not a cloud solution. The TCxVector promotions engine is a Toshiba offering and is implemented as part of the company's POS solution, which is store based. Since this is delivered as a Toshiba offering, all pricing information will come from Toshiba.
