Bird Aviation will utilize the industry-leading Alkym® / Aircraft Management and Control System (“Alkym”) to ensure maximum efficiency and optimize its MRO technical operations.
“As a startup MRO provider, we will bring a new offering to the airframe maintenance market in our region. We set out to ensure we put IT at the center of the new operations and drive our process correctly from the outset. There were many options to examine during our research,” said Shai Gill, COO of Bird Aviation, who led the company’s team in evaluating available market solutions. “Alkym and Seabury Solutions clearly demonstrated they understood the business. It will allow us set up our data and process to match a proven solution from the day we open the doors.”
Alkym will be hosted on a cloud server with the initial scoping project set to begin this month. Bird Aviation will begin utilizing ten of Alkym’s modules and will work on concurrent user’s model. They can scale up with ease.
John Barry, Senior Vice President with Seabury Solutions commented: “Our development work over the past twelve months focused on the pure MRO aspect of Alkym. These customers have been underserved in the market in terms of a truly cost effective solution. We looked to ensure we had the entire business cycle encompassed within our modules. Our experience taught us that providers wanted to manage from proposal to invoice. Having a single source for data that each department works with was key.”
