Portside has acquired SeaGil Software, which will allow the San Francisco-based provider of cloud-based software for Part 91 and Part 135 flight departments to expand its scheduling software. The purchase of SeaGil, headquartered in Georgia, follows Portside’s acquisition of Professional Flight Management.
Portside said the two purchases enable it to provide a range of scheduling solutions. PFM and SeaGil’s Bart serve different markets and have their own unique competitive advantages.
SeaGil, which was owned by Bradley Tilford and Kimberly Tilford, introduced the Bart product suite in 1986. Since its launch, that software has supported hundreds of operators, more than 6,000 aircraft, and more than 15,000 crewmembers globally.
SeaGil will continue to operate under its own name following the completion of the acquisition, which will enable Portside to accelerate Bart’s product development. “The team will remain focused on driving the best outcomes for our customers,” said SeaGil CEO Kimberly Tilford.
