Why an Equipment Fleet Management Solution is Mission Critical for the Aviation Industry

The challenge for dispatchers and equipment managers is multi-fold: First, they appear to have a limited amount of equipment to provide their services. They also have a potentially limited number of workers who are tasked with operating this equipment as efficiently as possible. Second, a relatively high percentage of the AGE/GSE assets are of a high value and are expensive to maintain. However expensive the equipment is, not meeting the agreed upon Service Level Agreements can be even more expensive. Every minute that a commercial airliner is delayed costs about $500. Due to the dynamic nature of the aviation operations, it is impossible to operate the ground equipment in a continuous manner. The current solution is to invest in a best-guess size fleet of equipment. This requires additional cash to be unnecessarily tied up and also results in higher costs maintaining these assets.
