Online aircraft services quote facilitator MRO Insider has introduced a new live map feature on its system that will enhance its functionality for users.
Previously, quote requests for services were sent through the app to vendors based on the location/radius of the aircraft. With the enhancement, users can now identify specific vendors and direct-request quotes through the platform, depending on where they want to have the work or services performed.
Using the system, those requests are sent directly to the service provider through email and text. The service provider can then respond back to the aircraft owner/operator via MRO Insider—which currently has more than 250 provider locations and 2,500 registered tail numbers—with pricing, timing of the work, and contact information.
“Our platform traditionally allowed users to send requests based by airport identifier and automatically notified providers located within a specific radius,” said company president Andy Nixon. “With our map feature, users will be able to find the location on the map where they need service and send direct requests to providers for AOG support, FBO pricing, or detailing needs through our network.”
