Maintenance price quote platform provider MRO Insider is adding new AOG service functionality to its mobile application for smartphones, tablets, or desktop computers. Through the app, users will be able to simplify the AOG process by entering their aircraft’s location. Service providers will then quickly respond to them with their hourly rate, ETA to aircraft, and other information. This will be presented along with any client reviews or ratings and the facility’s repair authorization and drug program paperwork.
“Our team began developing the app based on the feedback we’ve received from owner/operators, as well as AOG providers,” said co-founder Andy Nixon, noting this will allow users to streamline searches for qualified maintenance providers on just one platform. “With a worldwide database, we had the ability to quickly build out our current AOG search from our website.” He added it will save aircraft operators time and money by removing the need to pick up the telephone or perform internet searches—“one ping and the AOG providers will respond to them with a competitive rate.”
The function is expected to be operational early next year. Next month at NBAA-BACE, the company (Booth N2711) will be offering showgoers a sneak-peek preview of the AOG service request features and how it works.
