Comply365 Platform Streamlines Operations for Growing Private Aviation Company
Beloit, WI – FEB. 16, 2023 – Aviation software leader Comply365 is excited to share its newest implemented customer, Wheels Up Experience Inc. (NYSE:UP), who is relying on Comply365’s cloud-based document and compliance management system and electronic forms to transform their digital operations. Employees across nearly every department are using Comply365’s mobile platform to view and personalize their latest operational documents, record compliance and send information back to the operation.
Wheels Up is one of the largest private aviation companies in the world – with the membership-based, on-demand charter business headquartered in New York City. In 2021, Wheels Up became the first private aviation company to be traded on the NYSE, and last year, it expanded its global reach when it acquired the UK-based global aviation services group Air Partner PLC (LSE: AIR).
“As we’ve expanded our global operations and grown our fleet and services, the need for a unified system that easily tracks and manages compliance and operational content across our group became vital,” said Michael Vargo, senior vice president of Operations at Wheels Up. “We needed a simple way to distribute documents to our flight and operations crews, gather data from them, and capture and report on compliance across our enterprise. Comply365’s mobile solutions will simplify and unify these processes, providing greater efficiencies for us as we keep growing.”
Wheels Up reported its active members grew by 12 percent year-over-year, and it increased its revenue by 39 percent year-over-year, according to its 2022 third-quarter financial report.
Using Comply365’s mobile app, pilots, flight attendants and other operational crew members will always have the most updated content with revision control and automated syncing. Within the app, they can search across all their manuals at once, use tags to filter documents, and add personal annotations, bookmarks, and highlights that will be retained whenever a document is updated.
“Working with the knowledgeable team at Comply365 implementing the solution made for a smooth process, especially considering we rolled it out across all five of our AOCs (air operator certificates) at once,” Vargo said. “We are pleased to hear our flight crews found the app intuitive, and they are enjoying all the benefits of having what they need at their fingertips.”
Wheels Up is now able to distribute all document types (PDF, XLS, MP4, etc.) based on a user’s role. Users can easily see what’s changed in an updated document and read and sign in the same place. Automated compliance tracking and reporting will provide increased visibility and insights for Wheels Up.
“It’s my pleasure to welcome Wheels Up into our Comply365 community and congratulate them on a successful implementation. It’s an exciting time at Wheels Up, and we are proud to provide them with a solution to their challenges that will enhance the efficiency and safety of their operations,” said Tom Samuel, CEO of Comply365. “We look forward to our continued partnership in helping them streamline their operational content and compliance management.”
