The Appareo Mission Manager is an innovative flight planning and data distribution system designed for helicopter operators seeking improved accuracy, shortened Accounts Receivable cycles and improved standardization of operational processes. The Mission Manager uses Apple’s popular iPad tablet as its primary interface.
More than just a standalone app, the Mission Manager also incorporates a web-based interface for managing fleet and operational activities, a cloud-based server for data storage and retrieval, and integration with enterprise services such as ERP, MRO, crew scheduling and other systems that support an application programming interface.
As a fleet management tool, the Mission Manager shines – allowing flight planners to quickly schedule and manage complex multi-leg flights, pushing that information to specific crews and locations. Flight crews also see immediate benefits from the Mission Manager, enjoying flexible routing, an intuitive weight and balance calculator and precise fuel planning assistance. Perhaps most significantly, the elimination of physical paperwork for recording flight information leads to a significantly decreased cockpit workload while increasing data accuracy.
With billing information accurately recorded in-flight and made almost instantly available for processing, the Mission Manager reduces the steps required to bill customers. This results in quick turn-around for invoices and considerable savings by eliminating the manual data-entry aspects of typical billing processes.
Initially designed to meet the needs of the world’s largest helicopter operator, CHC Helicopter, the Mission Manager offers a flexible platform that can be tailored to accommodate nearly any sized operator. The Mission Manager’s cloud-based servers allow for easy customization of the system, resulting in a quick set-up and long-term flexibility for evolving operational needs.
With Appareo hosted and non-hosted infrastructure options, the Mission Manager allows operators an affordable entry point that can scale to meet future needs.
If your organization is ready for the next step in efficiency, accuracy and usability in flight planning and data distribution, then it’s time for the Mission Manager.
