Aviation Security, Data Driven Consulting and Technology Advisory
We help our clients by observing, measuring, analysing and, fully understanding their needs and the field we work in.
Point FWD was founded in 2011 by Gunther van Adrichem, after serving 10 years as R&D manager for security at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. It has since then grown into a diverse company with a tight-knit core; the seasoned consultancy team consists of aviation enthusiasts and technology geeks.
We believe in the power of data; real-life and valuable data
For aviation security, our belief is that data-driven decision making should be preferred over gut feeling decisions. Major investments in, for example, security equipment should be based on modelling, math and knowledge. The consultancy we provide our clients is always based on a combination of in-depth knowledge and extensive data analyses.
We’re consultants with an A-Team mentality
Point FWD was founded from an intrinsic motivation to help clients move forward, by solving their issues or obstacles. We’re not focused on “burning hours”, we focus on quality and getting the job done. Like ‘The A-Team’ we love it when a plan comes together.
Point FWD is linked to the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, this partnership sees a yearly input of intern and graduating students. The graduation theses are aviation security focussed and generate insight and valued fresh views on current topics.
