After the initial solution was developed, we began to market it to other aviation companies operating both fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft. Although the initial solution was designed for a commercial airline, we found it worked well in helicopter operations as well. The key was the solution development provided a configurable architecture to meet the requirements of each individual organization.
With the early versions of the product, configuration required quite a lot of involvement from our implementation staff. Over time, we added more features for administration that allowed client configuration of KPIs, limits, taxonomy mapping, operational groups, and more. In addition, we integrated with various web services, APIs, and other sources to consume external information.
For me, this represents several years of solution design, multiple iterations, product management, product evolution, client relationship building, technology advancement, product promotion, and a lot of fun!
