Aeroji connects all aero engine aftermarket stakeholders on a single platform. Aero-engine lease and sale processes are simplified with available tools like a marketplace, a social network-based communication system and documentation management. The platform Aeroji helps you to get connected more easily with business partners whether for leasing engines or engine sales.
The aviation industry is a big economical market with a steady yearly growth. However, in comparison to the technological development of aviation products the aftermarket domain is in a pre-developed phase of digitization.
There are various ways participants are contacting each other during their search for available spare engines and business growth opportunities – mainly during conferences, via phone calls, emails or messages. And although the number of participants is relatively small compared to the industry size, new stakeholders are continuously entering the arena. The success commonly relies on the participants, partners or contacts, namely their professional network.
On the one hand, getting new contacts/information is a favourable outcome – on the other hand sharing contacts/information is uncommon, because an information advantage is seen as a competitive advantage. This circumstance is one of the reasons for the missing transparency of the availability of spare engines.
This results in a number of problems for all stakeholders of the domain:
- High management efforts and related costs for airlines as well as for lessors
- The need to invest in multiple procurement models and programs
- Strategic growth problems due to tied-up capital in fixed assets
The goal should be to create as much transparency as possible to allow the stakeholders to base their decisions on the same level of information. The processes and communication channels can be integrated in one system and streamlined to increase the professional work experience of asset managers.
Platforming is one of the most powerful ways to integrate different tools in one system. Combined with excellent UI/UX design a tailormade product related work experience can be created. A marketplace provides transparency and recency as known from stock exchanges and fairs. An integrated social network puts the user in the focus and creates motivation and allows networking for business growth. A lot of processes can be standardized and streamlined and still leave room for individual approaches, if required or desired.
A lot of repeatable and iterative processes, like searches, can be automated and saved for future requests to avoid wasting time and energy. Social Network tools like notifications and status updates keep you up to date with your desired content. An integrated light CRM and communication tools ensure that all tasks can be completed on the same system and you get an excellent overview of your portfolio performance. A document management system encourages you to store all the import documentation in one place and provides you with the option to share the documents with the partners of your choice. Furthermore, there is no need to switch between the different information sources like email client, in-house spreadsheets or websites of your business partners.
