COMMERCIAL MRO aggregators, replacing a web of different suppliers with a single point of contact. A good network, with a pre-agreed contractual framework, can do much of the hard work before a part even leaves the aircraft. Adopting this approach allows operators to benefit from a standardised quality of service and more streamlined processes. Aggregators are better placed to select the right supplier and can also more easily offer exchange options, avoiding the need to wait for repairs to be completed. We are increasingly seeing demand from operators for this type of arrangement as it ensures better customer service — in their preferred language — plus savings derived from the aggregator's ongoing relationships with suppliers, where they benefit from economies of scale and can drive continual improvement and efficiencies. Taking a global approach to MRO and working with an aggregator allows operators to spend wherever they are likely to see the best return — taking advantage of fluctuations in exchange rates. They can also spread risk by avoiding price spikes driven by regional natural events such as ash clouds and earthquakes. THE DATA DIVIDEND Thinking internationally and more strategically can unlock further benefits for operators as big data and technological advances open up new opportunities.
