Airborne Capital, a specialist aircraft lease and asset manager, deployed LeaseWorks’ Aeris Asset management software to streamline its aircraft portfolio management.
Prior to implementing Aeris Asset, Airborne Capital managed its aircraft portfolio using several systems to share and monitor critical asset information. As the company grew, now with 58 aircraft in its portfolio, it required a system that would automate the technical, contract and finance processes of managing assets to enable the commercial team to make better decisions in a timely and efficient manner.
Donna Marie O’Neill, head of operations at Airborne Capital, scoured the market for off-the-shelf solutions with an adaptable framework that would accommodate the business’ growth, leading her to select the Aeris Asset platform.
“While managing customers’ portfolios through spreadsheets is a temporarily workable solution, manual processes have limitations and hinder the potential for scaling a platform,” O’Neill said. “LeaseWorks’ Aeris Asset offered us the right combination of easy user experience, cloud and mobile device accessibility and the robust reporting dashboards we needed for managing our expanding fleet.”
Archana Sukumar, LeaseWorks’ customer success manager, and her implementation team collaborated with Airborne Capital to gather and document processes, customizing the system’s configuration to meet the lessor’s requirements.
“The implementation process was efficient and the LeaseWorks team’s assistance was best-in-class,” O’Neill said. “We now have the ability to automate our invoicing and generate on-demand management reports without manual processes.”
Using the Aeris Asset platform, Airborne Capital streamlined its business operations by implementing an approval process across third-party service providers using the system and setting up notifications. Additionally, using profile-level restrictions, the lessor is now able to share information with external users and investors.
“We are continuing to strengthen our partnership with Airborne through ongoing collaboration and adaptation of our various products and solutions to meet their evolving needs,” Haseem Vazhayil, CEO of LeaseWorks, said.
LeaseWorks is a provider of cloud-based solutions and services to the aviation industry.
