I had a recent conversation with Jacob Wright, President of CCI Aero. CCI is based in South Carolina and is a full aviation parts stocking distributor who just recently implemented QSTEP, Component Control’s new Cloud Based Aviation ERP Software for Parts Traders.

Q: Jacob, thanks for meeting with me. Can you tell me a little more information about CCI Aero?

A: Absolutely, CCI is a company that I recently founded that specializes in Aviation parts distribution. We plan to expand into nose-to-tail but are focused on Avionics (APU) and (QEC) Engine parts and stock the parts that are most frequently used in the marketplace.

Q: How are you acquiring your inventory?

A: We target tear-downs and surplus assets both domestically and internationally.

Q: Why did you purchase Quantum QSTEP for your business?

A: There were a few reasons QSTEP made sense for us. I have been in the industry for 13 years and am familiar with the Software provided by Component Control, and its broad market usage. Further, the integration with our Cloud-Based Financial system (QuickBooks) was key in supporting our paperless objectives.

Q: What other features do you feel were positive in generating ROI for subscribing to Quantum QSTEP?

A: The ability to store files in the cloud and not have to build out IT will save us significant costs. The web-based User Interface gives us a lot of flexibility by allowing us to use the service from a desktop, tablet, or mobile device.

Q: Did you take advantage of the training program that is included with the on boarding?

A: I did but I kind of “jumped the line”. I was anxious to get started and had already used Quantum before so I didn’t need quite as much training. Happy that we have it available should we need more.

Q: Did you take advantage of the StockMarket.aero Premium Services as part of the recent promotion that we ran?

A: Not yet. I am not as familiar with StockMarket.aero as some of the other parts e-listing services. Now that I know it is free, and premium is included in the initial subscription, I will be looking into implementing.

Jacob, thanks for the conversation and for choosing Quantum QSTEP to be your Aviation Parts ERP solution to help you grow your business. Hopefully we can catch up at the QUE Group user conference.
