EmbraerX announced on 31 January that it signed an agreement with Jet Flight Service (JFS), a global MRO service provider headquartered in Russia certified by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and Russian Federal Agency for Air Transport (FATA). This partnership is supporting Jet Flight Service (JFS) in gaining efficiencies by onboarding their teams into Beacon’s multi-sided platform.
After seeing the market adopt Beacon across Central and Eastern Europe, JFS decided to join the platform, recognizing it as the best alternative for improving coordination during maintenance operations. The main advantages identified by the provider were related to streamlining maintenance cases, reducing out-of-service time, eliminating redundant communications and leveraging data insights to improve the operation.
“Beacon is easy to use and adopt as it does not replace any systems for us. First, it is a communication solution and second, it is a machine learning engine that builds knowledge bases for the technicians of the future. You can't find that combination anywhere else," said Kirill Trushkovskiy, General Director of Jet Flight Service.
As their teams get onboarded into the Beacon platform, Jet Flight Service is increasing its productivity by expediting communication more efficiently to their customer base and improving coordination among all stakeholders working on interruptions. Teams are benefiting by getting back time and energy that today is wasted due to scattered communication and the use of outdated technologies.
“As an early adopter of Beacon, Jet Flight Service is a great example of a company recognizing the new technology trends. We are thrilled to welcome an organization that understands that success is dependent on coordination and reliability. JFS demands this of us to continually deliver excellence to their customers," said Marco Cesarino, Head of Beacon.
With this agreement, Beacon is bringing more players of the ecosystem into its platform so they can collaborate better and smarter while accelerating return-to-service. Beacon is continuing to serve all types of aircraft and leveraging the benefits of technology as a means to cut through complexity and facilitate collaboration in an industry that is ripe for digital transformation.
Incubated by EmbraerX, Embraer's market accelerator for disruptive businesses, Beacon is the maintenance coordination platform for faster return-to-service. It is an innovative platform designed to connect and synchronize industry resources, the aftermarket supply chain, and aviation services professionals in a more agile and efficient way to keep aircraft flying. Beacon aims to unleash high-value interactions and business opportunities to multiple stakeholders within the service ecosystem. The platform is initially focused on providing solutions to unscheduled aircraft maintenance interruptions.
Through an easily accessible digital web and mobile application (IOS and Android), Beacon's main goal is to connect companies and professionals with one another. The technology triggers a network of accredited providers, fostering real-time collaboration during unplanned maintenance activities, accelerating the return to service of aircraft.
