(13 Aug 2021) Beacon, the maintenance coordination platform from EmbraerX, has signed an agreement with Inflite The Jet Centre, one of the largest privately-owned European MRO component support providers.
The deal is designed to support Inflite’s teams in gaining efficiencies to accelerate aircraft return-to-service.
Inflite The Jet Centre answers over 800 AOG and Line cases per year thanks to its dedicated team of aircraft engineers on Embraer and other aircraft manufacturer’s products.
“Joining the Beacon platform is a milestone in Inflite’s efforts to ensure continuous improvement in service,” said Sébastien Albouy, General Manager at Inflite. “Continuing on our long standing partnership as the first and oldest Embraer Approved Service Centre in EMEA, we are proud to be part of the Beacon community and provide our team with a smart digital tool that takes off most of the burden and time spent in coordination. For us, it is a proactive shift to place digital at the core of our organization to help our teams deal with the increasing pressure in our industry. When we heard about the benefits of Beacon, the intelligence it brings to the operation and how easy it is to get started, it was a no-brainer.”
Beacon is an innovative platform designed to connect and synchronize industry resources, the aftermarket supply chain, and aviation services professionals in a more agile and efficient manner ensuring the rapid return of aircraft to service.
Benefitting from a startup mindset and backed by Embraer’s more than 50-year history of aerospace expertise, Beacon is aiming to become the leading platform for aviation maintenance collaboration, being capable of serving any manufacturer, anytime, anyplace.
“Inflite has an excellent reputation around the world for aircraft maintenance and customer support,” said Marco A. Cesarino, Head of Beacon. “We are thrilled to welcome an organization that understands that the power of technology relies on empowering people. Together with Inflite, we are pioneering a new era of aviation maintenance where we bring value to all stakeholders working on interruptions and prepare the foundation for a future where the workforce will be an even more scarce resource.”
Beacon has also recently signed agreements with ABS Jets and the Mobile Repair Team.
Last June, the company concluded over 35,000 unscheduled maintenance cases by more than a thousand users. These numbers are expected to grow as the aviation industry recovers from the COVID19 crisis.
