Aviation ERP Software – About Component Control in 2018

Learning, Scale, and Vision

I joined Component Control as Sr. Vice President in January-18 and as “the new guy” I spent the last 60 days traveling the globe to meet with Customers, Partners, and Prospective Clients to learn more about what they want, what they like about Component Control, and how Quantum-ERP is positioned in the Aviation Software Market.  Personally, having over 20 years in the global commercialization of software but no experience in this space, I felt that it was critical to quickly get a better understanding of the Aviation market.  With that purpose in mind, I met with several customers and prospects and attended several trade shows including AEA, HAI, ILS, and MRO Americas.  Although far from an aviation software expert, I listened and learned.

Learning

Nearly every customer that I spoke with LOVES Quantum.  I really felt their passion for the product and I was told that our software was part of their daily work life.  They leverage Quantum aviation software as the foundational system that they use to build, repair, inventory, ship, account, sell, and support their customers.

I heard that they want to do more with Quantum by gaining higher accessibility, increased visibility, and quickly identifying business impacts and opportunities for productivity gains.  I heard that they want more integration with 3rd party software and marketplace providers.  I heard that most want more training and to get a better understanding of what they have but are not yet using.  I also heard that our customers are excited to attend our user conference in June (QUE Group) to meet their peers across the aviation space to share best practices and learn more about Quantum.  These market lessons have allowed me to action a vision and plan for 2018 and beyond.  For us to deliver this plan we will need an even higher level of customer engagement and leverage our, now, formidable business scale.

Scale

Component Control is a different company than it was three years ago.  We started as a founder owned business and grew rapidly by capturing the majority of the aviation parts logistics and MRO markets.  With more than 1,500 global aviation customers, we are the product that companies in this space rely on.  We are now part of an even larger market as a CAMP Systems owned company and part of the $10.6B Hearst Portfolio.  CAMP Systems has over 800 employees and those resources are now available to Component Control.  We are actively engaged with CAMP on product development, marketing, operations, support and finance.  Those joined resources have already produced great results in the delivery of new products (CAMP Connect & MobileTech) and improved imaging and branding with our newly designed Website.

Vision

2018 will be a year of leverage in building new applications around mobility, visibility, and accessibility.  We are actively engaged in building deeper partnership with existing partners like Oracle and evaluating several exciting new partnerships.  We are working to improve the users experience in StockMarket.aero with more access to more vendors, better filtering, and community sharing.  With over 150,000 searches per day and over 3,000 vendors, we feel StockMarket can be even better and will continue to remain free to list. And finally, we are encouraging our customers to come to San Diego and attend Quantum Academy.  We offer a full week of training every third week of the month and once completed attendees will be certified on Quantum, get exposure to new products, and gain a better understanding of their existing capabilities.  If you require more Quantum training please attend, meet our team, enjoy the food in Little Italy and the San Diego sunshine.

2018

With these strategic initiatives set for 2018, we are committed to continue to be the service-oriented and professional company that our customers love while delivering new and innovative software.  Our ultimate goal is to provide Quantum-ERP customers the highest productivity and ROI in the Aviation marketplace.

    Well said. I lived the Quantum experience for short time and miss it. Having spent over 30 years in Aviation Supply Chain I experienced many other platforms and nothing compares.
    You have a great product. Keep listening to your customers, their input will help you continue to enhance a world class product. Please say hi to Andrew and Todd for me.
