Skeyos revolutionises MRO procurement with industry-first ‘buy-or-repair' parts comparison

04 June 2019, Frankfurt: Online MRO marketplace Skeyos is announcing the launch of its parts trading module, introducing a comparison functionality for repairs and parts which will revolutionise the way ‘buy or repair’ decisions for aircraft components are made in the future.

In an industry first, purchasers of aircraft parts and services can now make instant and informed comparisons between all sourcing options available to them. New and used parts, as well as associated repair services are displayed with a single click, establishing full transparency on prices, availabilities, certificates and terms. Customers are able to search, compare and order directly through one combined interface, saving time previously wasted on generating RFPs and collecting and reviewing diverse quotes.

Hans Bernd Schmidt, General Manager at Skeyos says: “Currently, airline purchasing managers have to manually compare the costs of repairing a part, buying used or contacting the OEM directly for a replacement part, each time requiring contact with several points of sale. This is incredibly time-consuming. Using the Skeyos Marketplace, the various means can now be compared with just two clicks and resulting orders can be placed, tracked and managed directly via one consolidated channel.”

Skeyos was founded in early 2018 to provide the UK MRO market with an automated online channel offering better transparency, dependability and simplicity when buying aircraft component services. Today’s introduction of a parts module gives purchasers access to 140,000 products, bringing the industry one big step closer towards a true one-stop-shop for all aircraft component needs.

Schmidt continues: “At Skeyos, we strive to offer a high degree of automation at all levels for our users. MRO is a great example of an industry acknowledging the advantages afforded by digitalisation to improve efficiency and transparency in their operations. We are proud to be part of that movement and look forward to taking the lead in future innovations.”

Schmidt will be speaking at AP&M Europe’s conference on 4 June at 14:30, exploring “Digitalisation and The Changing Face of Inventory Management”.
