Jeppesen, along with the company BoldIQ, has introduced Jeppesen Operator, an online business aviation platform that offers a "one-stop shop self-service environment" for pilots and operations staff. The flight department management software operates through the cloud.
Operator integrates "flight planning, runway performance, weight and balance, crew scheduling and management, aircraft scheduling, domestic and international trip planning and reporting (financial, maintenance and custom), customer account management, real time pricing and cost accounting capabilities," the company announced. A custom checklist "provides insight into the complexity and requirements for each trip and determines if additional resources are needed."
“The introduction of Jeppesen Operator represents the culmination of years of meticulous research and proven in-production software, understanding customer driven requirements and design work performed to create the next generation business aviation tool,” said Mike DiDonato, Jeppesen director of industry services. “Integrating multiple resources into a single platform that is optimized by BoldIQ’s technology allows operators to improve collaboration, increase productivity and reduce errors, with total operational control. Plus, Jeppesen’s renowned global customer service team is available 24/7 to resolve any issues that customers may encounter.”
When using Operator and concierge service, a customer can connect with Jeppesen’s International Trip Planning (ITP) global experts for help "managing flight plans, permits, and handling arrangements, or to establish a line of credit, to eliminate operational financial concerns that could jeopardize a planned flight."
Airport, FBO, and vendor data for Operator systems is generated by the Jeppesen Aviation Database, the company said.
“The complexities and real-time dynamic nature of on-demand aviation operations are significant and much more than many other industries we have seen,” said BoldIQ President and CEO Roei Ganzarski. “The combination of sophisticated industry proven technologies with in-depth experience-based know-how are what make the Jeppesen solution so powerful and applicable.”
