EmbraerX unveils Beacon business platform
By Wings Staff
EmbraerX today unveiled a new business platform called Beacon designed to serve a diversified fleet of aircraft, by synchronizing industry resources, the aftermarket supply chain, and aviation services professionals. The launch customer is JetSuiteX, a Dallas-based air carrier that operates 30-seat Embraer jets out of private terminals.
“As the launch customer for Beacon, we believe [Beacon] will enhance JetSuiteX’s operational efficiency and minimize aircraft downtime, thereby driving greater customer satisfaction and enhanced overall performance,” said Robert Hamel, Vice-President of Technical Operations, JetSuiteX.
Beacon aims to leverage high-value interactions and business opportunities to multiple stakeholders within the service ecosystem. The company explains this platform is initially focused on providing solutions to unscheduled aircraft maintenance interruptions. Tests of Beacon have been conducted in several places since mid-2018.
“Beyond its broad capacity to meet the needs of existing aviation systems, Beacon was also designed to account for the future of urban air mobility,” said Antonio Campello, president and CEO of EmbraerX. “The JetSuiteX spirit of innovation pairs well with Beacon’s purpose, and we are thrilled to have them onboard with this personalized, agnostic, and collaborative services initiative.”
Through an online and mobile application (IOS and Android), the technology triggers a network of accredited providers, fostering what EmbraerX describes as real-time collaboration during unplanned maintenance activities, accelerating the return to service of aircraft.
