MRO Insider (Booth 4818) is celebrating its first anniversary with the addition of StandardAero to its list of subscribed facilities as the first international MRO subscriber. In its first year of operation, the company has added more than 100 maintenance locations and 400 corporate aircraft to its website. MRO Insider’s site provides a free service that enables aircraft owners and operators to submit RFQs, search subscribed facility profiles, and read customer reviews when searching for MRO services.
“StandardAero is delighted to become the first international MRO to support operators through MRO Insider’s online maintenance quote portal,” said Jason Johnson, vice president of sales and marketing for StandardAero’s airline and fleets business unit.
According to the company, MRO Insider was developed as a solution to improve word-of-mouth referrals for aviation maintenance services. Those who elect to become subscribed maintenance facilities pay a monthly fee to have a profile page and quoting ability. Owners and operators can access the website for free to send required maintenance out for quote to multiple subscribed facilities within a desired radius.
Then owners and operators can review quotes sent from facilities, read facility information, and examine customer reviews during their decision-making process. Once a facility is selected, owners and operators can accept the quote of their choice and are encouraged to review the service once completed on the website.
“Adding StandardAero to our network strengthens and benefits our owners and operators in a big way,” said Andy Nixon, co-founder and vice president of sales for MRO Insider. “When searching for maintenance providers and obtaining quotes, our users will now be able to get responses from more facilities, with a larger geographic spread than ever before. When someone is AOG, the StandardAero network of mobile service teams will mean our third-party AOG search will likely solve their problem.”
