Satcom Direct has completed phase one of the strategic integration of MySky, the AI-powered spend management platform designed for the private aviation industry.
The incorporation of the single sign-in functionality into SD Pro, the digital flight operations and communications platform, now enables SD Pro users, subscribed to the MySky platform, to access and optimise spend management and operations data directly from the SD Pro dashboard.
The integration positions SD Pro as a single source of data delivering relevant information through a centralised system that is synchronised with all team members. In addition to the single sign-in function, graphics generated from MySky relating to spend efficiency are displayed alongside operations data on the dashboard interface. SD Pro users can switch between the flight operations platform and the spend management tool for instant access to real-time planning, operational and financial data for private aviation.
With the information now available through the single interface, all flight operations team members will have access to consistent, validated data to support immediate, proactive decision making to augment efficiency, budgeting and asset management.
“The integration of the MySky information into our open architecture platform provides clear visibility into the complete flight operation ecosystem, from the SD PreFlight planning module through to SD PostFlight reporting, as well as purchasing and invoice management,” said Chris Moore, Satcom Direct business aviation president. “This streamlines all the processes related to flight operations resulting in an enriched ownership experience and seamless flight operations. The addition of this sophisticated financial management tool complements our operations-focused products. It also demonstrates the power of aggregating data to support long-term sustainability and growth for our common clients, and the business aviation sector as a whole.”
This first phase of integration will be followed by the addition of the recently launched MySky Budget tool, which supports predictive budgeting analysis.
“Incorporating MySky Spend Management into the SD platform creates an aviation data powerhouse that will increase financial transparency and efficiency for business aviation owners and operators,” said Chris Marich, co-founder of MySky. “For jet owners, understanding the real operating costs of their aircraft can sometimes be difficult. Together, MySky and SD are providing SD Pro users with clear visibility of operating costs, enabling users to maximise their budgets and make more informed business decisions.”
