Available on iPhones, the current version of the Avinode Marketplace App allows users to search Avinode’s full global database.
Avinode, the world’s leading online marketplace for buying and selling air charter, is today announcing the launch of its new Avinode Marketplace App, enabling users to stay on top of their business, and their customers’ trips, whilst on the move. Later this year, additional features will be launched to allow operators to modify and respond to quote requests.
Available on iPhones, the current version of the Avinode Marketplace App allows users to search Avinode’s full global database of available private jet aircraft, which includes the industry’s largest database of empty legs. The app also now allows brokers to organise trip requests and responses all in one place. It keeps track of the status of all requested trips, originating from Aircraft and Helicopter Search, Empty Legs or Trip Board in the Avinode Marketplace. The app compares the options, making it easy to evaluate and compare quotes from operators and allows push notifications to see when a request is accepted.
Oliver King, Avinode’s managing director, says: “More than 80% of the European charter market already uses Avinode’s Marketplace. The goal with this app, our ‘pocket-sized Marketplace’, is to allow brokers and operators to manage their business 24/7, servicing trips, taking care of their end client and managing quote requests whilst on the move. Our long-term goal is to put all the functions that a user needs to manage their business remotely onto the app, so they can work on any mobile device or tablet, wherever they are. ”
Avinode’s Marketplace App has been designed to make the processes for operators and brokers as fast and efficient as possible. Once the key stages of the iPhone development have been put in place, Avinode’s next priority will be to build the same product for Android. At the end of June 2015, Avinode also launched a refreshed user interface to the Avinode Marketplace so that it works across devices, from tablets to operational displays.
Avinode’s Marketplace App is free to download and available from the Apple Store.
