Eagle, ID -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/15/2017 -- Encompass Aviation has secured a multi-year contract with eTT Aviation for its SkedFlex Air Operations Suite. SkedFlex will enable Encompass to operate its Surf Air operation in Hawthorne, California, at peak efficiency while maximizing its use of critical pilot and aircraft resources.
SkedFlex is an innovative product designed to help its airline customers operate more efficiently and profitably by providing them with the advanced capabilities needed to manage operations at a lesser cost than the outdated and less customer-focused solutions used elsewhere. In automating many processes and reporting functions that heretofore have been accomplished either manually or with less capable software, SkedFlex significantly reduces workload and improves operational efficiency and communication, while providing customers' employees a better quality of life – a critical factor in retention, productivity, and satisfaction given the shortage of qualified pilots and competition among air carriers. Flight operations, flight crews, maintenance personnel, and station personnel can directly access the software to view and manage schedules, training currency/compliance, day-to-day routing, and much more.
"We look forward to our association with eTT Aviation and their robust SkedFlex Air Operations Suite of software. We believe that SkedFlex is the best solution in the market and will enable us to grow our airline, expand our fleet and increase our network across North America. SkedFlex will not only help us in providing information to maximize resource utilization but will increase efficiencies in managing our operation," said Steve Harfst, CEO of Encompass Aviation.
