Satcom Direct (SD) has formed a strategic alliance with MySky, an AI-powered spend management platform for the private aviation industry. Real-time operational and financial information will be combined on the SD Pro platform.
MySky provides access to financial data and proprietary IT tools, the intention being to help owners and operators reduce costs, refine spending and improve the overall aircraft ownership experience. SD Pro, a digital management dashboard, provides pre- to post-flight aircraft performance information to aircraft operators around the world. SD Pro is an open architecture platform, aiming to add value to the user experience through the integration of third-party suppliers. As a result of the integration with MySky, SD will add a financial component to SD Pro.
Through the SD Pro platform, aircraft operators will have direct access to financial and operational information from both MySky and SD. The companies say the aggregated information will help operators in making informed, proactive decisions in real-time, heightening control and efficiency. Rote tasks can be automated to increase productivity and enable the reallocation of human resources.
“At MySky, our goal is to bring increased transparency and accountability to the private aviation industry by ensuring stakeholders have the necessary tools to better understand and manage the costs of their assets,” said Kirill Kim, co-founder and CEO of MySky. “By combining our industry-leading financial data with SD’s detailed operational information, I’m confident that this alliance will help stakeholders better navigate the long-time obstacles associated with private aviation management.”
“SD is dedicated to delivering advanced technological capabilities to our customers,” said Chris Moore, president of business aviation at SD. “With the integration of MySky into the SD Pro platform, we are adding a significant resource to the operational mix by providing a business management tool that complements our operations-focused products. We are excited to work closely with the MySky team to foster industry growth and long-term sustainability for our clients.”
