Alkym® Platform’s Industry-Leading Capabilities Advance Colombian Cargo Airline’s Digital Transformation

Córdoba, Argentina – September 21, 2021 – Seabury Solutions, a subsidiary of New York-based Seabury Capital Group LLC and the market leader in delivering aircraft M&E and MRO software solutions for the aviation industry, announced today the addition of a new customer for its Alkym® Platform, a Colombia-based cargo carrier, Líneas Aéreas Suramericanas S.A.S. (“LAS Cargo”).

“Digital innovation continues to be top-of-mind for executives across the airline industry. The digital economy is expanding at its fastest pace and the shift to digital transformation initiatives among carriers, including cargo operators, is being accelerated by the effects of the pandemic,” noted Manuel Roché, Seabury Solutions’ VP, Sales & Marketing LATAM.

For airlines, this means that acting fast is key. But to act faster, airlines need technology solutions that advance their digital transformation agendas and are supported by a technological partner that can implement and comprehensively support solutions for their new processes.

Following an exhaustive selection process, LAS Cargo enlisted the support of Seabury Solutions, licensing several modules of the Alkym suite, to implement the applications for Planning, Engineering, Maintenance Control, Purchasing and Repairs, Inventory, Receiving and Dispatch, Reliability, MRO, as well as the mobile application for mechanics and inspectors.

“The implementation of Alkym in LAS Cargo allows us to advance in our technological value proposition focused on digital transformation in the processes,” asserted Juan Pablo Bonilla, LAS Cargo IT Manager, adding that “we are sure that with this application in a 100% cloud infrastructure and with the support of Seabury Solutions we will be able to advance in this way.”

With the implementation process currently under way, the Alkym software is already supporting the airline’s M&E and MRO operations. LAS Cargo will continue to receive ongoing support from the Seabury Solutions team for the software’s support, maintenance, and updates in the future.

Maurice Thorin Brauer, Chief Executive Officer of LAS Cargo, commenting on the collaboration between the companies’ teams, emphasized that “LAS Cargo is focused on an ambitious transformation plan that involves a change from corporate governance and its strategic plan, which is centered on a digital culture to provide technological solutions to all stakeholders. Alkym plays an important and fundamental role in the optimization of our processes in the maintenance area.”

EPAS-Dashboards-1-1200x676.png

This EPAS series campaign examines ‘Network Performance Management’ and the challenges faced in most airlines today. Through our extensive experience in Airline Performance Analysis, we have identified these challenges, along with some favorable outcomes for organizations applying a disciplined approach and robust technology to performance analysis.

The results are made available to executives and decision makers for reporting on customizable dashboards.  Some examples of these dashboards are included below. It then concludes with a sample case study with one of our North American customers, where we highlight some of their key results using APAS.

Challenges:
  1. Timely performance results are required by stakeholders
    • Performance analysis is useful and required, yet performed almost a month in arrears and not capable of supporting real time and mid to long term planning
    • A significant amount of time spent waiting to procure the inputs and yet more to manually assemble it into the accepted format, to generate the required analytics
    • Correction and reprocessing of input data to regenerate performance results can take multiple days to a week
    • Model changes and reprocessing of historical periods to generate a consistent basis for evaluating performance can take multiple months provision
  • Accurate granular data is required for deep dive analytics is spread throughout the organization
    • Missing or erroneous operational input data puts into question the validity of the output
    • In the age of virtual cabins, limited or unaligned data across systems makes it difficult to evaluate the airline’s investments in new products and services
    • While the financials are accurately captured in the general ledger, they are not at the granularity needed to truly assess the operation
    • Revenue accounting data is exceptionally large, yet provides vital information on passenger seating and itinerary flows enabling deeper insights into cabin, product and beyond contribution
  • Analytics are performed as a “snapshot” view and difficult to repeat
    • On a periodic basis (monthly/quarterly/yearly/ ad-hoc) analysts are required to gather outputs of data from the various sources
    • The methodology used to model the results is often of a singular focus designed to answer a specific question
    • Expansion of the model or drill down requirements are either difficult to perform or impossible
    • Once the analysis is done, the work required to gather and assemble is not leveraged for future analytics
  • Warehousing of the data is not sufficient to model the operation
    • Modeling the true activity cost using the disparate sources requires greater sophistication than a data warehouse
    • Data warehouses are rigid environments which naturally limit change and a solution’s ability to evolve with the business and adapt new data sources
Observations in performance analysis and evolutions resulting:
  1. More frequent and timely reporting
    • Instead of waiting until GL close to measure results for prior month, airlines are moving towards weekly and even daily reporting
    • Processing of performance month end results should be a matter of hours or minutes, not days
    • Eliminate costly reruns with system data correction and enhancement
  • Multi-dimensional analysis
    • Instead limiting the focus to market or even flight performance, extend performance analysis to the cabin, product or even seat
    • Evaluate the contribution of a market to the Network analyzing passenger flows, beyond revenue and contribution
    • Extend airline’s analysis to include a passenger itinerary or journey view of performance and evaluate online O&D performance
  • Forward view
    • Produce a continuum of result views including month to date thru projected month end results, month end results, projected next month thru future year schedule
    • Include booking data to measure forward looking trends vs. forecast revenue
    • Iterate on schedules to measure future performance with the same scorecard as prior month performance
Executive Dashboard Reporting
Capabilities:
  • APAS reports and analysis increase visibility to performance.
  • Helps drive need for more sophisticated fleet analysis
  • Used to confirm benefit from re-fleeting decisions

  EPAS results are presented to each executive on customizable dashboards:

Case Study – Network Performance Measurement

One of our North American carriers installed and used outputs from APAS to stimulate fleet assignment reviews which ultimately found at least US$25M in improvement to pre-tax profits.

for Efficient Management of MRO Operations

NEW YORK – June 3, 2021 – Seabury Solutions, a subsidiary of New York-based Seabury Capital Group LLC and the market leader in delivering aircraft M&E & MRO software solutions for the aviation industry, announced that Nauru Air Corporation (“Nauru Airlines”), the flag carrier of the Republic of Nauru, has deployed the Alkym® Platform’s newest feature, the MRO Management and Mobile Maintenance Customer Application (“MRO Customer App”).

Seabury Solutions, VP, Head of Sales & Marketing, Carlos Bianchi underscored that “supporting Nauru Airlines as they continue to expand their MRO capabilities is of critical importance to the Seabury Solutions team.”

The MRO Customer App will enable the Pacific airline to approve or reject in real-time the defects and non-routine works that appear during the execution of maintenance tasks performed on their aircraft or components, resulting in significant improvements in their operational and financial performance.

“The new way of promoting and understanding their business, presents many opportunities and challenges, from a digitalization point of view,” commented Nauru Airlines Chief Financial Officer Mariette Ebersohn, adding that the airline “had to find a way to face these challenges by introducing new business verticals to control and manage, in the best way possible, the ones we have already established as profitable. For that reason, we were looking to find a flexible and easy to configure solution, that would allow us to digitalize and manage contracts for our hangars.”

“Our understanding of how we wanted to control our hangars played an important role in under-standing the MRO Management solution that Seabury Solutions was providing,” expounded Brian Huddy, Nauru Airlines’ Head of Maintenance. “We know it will be challenging but after effectively accomplishing the utilization of the Alkym® MRO suite, we’d like to explore expanding our MRO capabilities.”
