At the end of 2015 we attended the MRO & Flight Ops IT Conference, hosted by Aircraft Commerce. On the first day of the conference and exhibition Mr Subhranshu Sekhar Das, Head of Aerospace & Defence for Frost & Sullivan, APAC, presented on the changing landscape of the aviation supply chain. We were delighted to see that an organisation of Frost & Sullivan’s stature had placed Rusada as one of the ‘champions’ in the Aerospace IT provider quadrant.
The three main points that were considered for this analysis were:
- Technological Innovation
- Geographical Ambition
- Growth In Market Penetration
This was a very comprehensive study that Frost & Sullivan undertook. Competitors such as SAP, Ramco, Oracle, Swiss AS, Mxi Technologies, Trax and Seabury MRO to name but a few were compared.
This section looked at Application Architecture, Mobile Support Platforms, Option For Cloud Deployment Support, 3rd Party Interfacing Capabilities and APIs, and Big Data Analytics. We scored very strongly in all categories but were given full marks for 3rd Party Interfacing Capabilities and APIs.
It is well known that we have offices in UK (one in England and one in Scotland), Switzerland, Dubai, India and Singapore. This helps us reach our customer base quickly and time differences between countries have the minimal of impacts on our work. We have customers ranging from as Far South East as New Zealand and as West as Mexico. This is a fantastic reach but we have big ambitions. Given the demand for our solutions from regions such as China and Russia, Envision’s now-ready multi-language support feature is helping us penetrate in to these markets.
Growth in Market Penetration
Frost & Sullivan also look us on favourable in the Growth in Market Penetration section of their analysis. Awarded in their eyes a growth of 20% in the past 36 months, this sees Rusada as one of the big movers in this section, having more growth in the past 36 months than Seabury MRO, Ultramain, Trax, IFS, CAMP, Corridor and impressively Oracle.
We were unaware that this study was being conducted and our business being analysed by Frost & Sullivan but we are delighted with the outcome. Rusada CEO, Julian Stourton, said “This is high praise indeed. A consultancy such as Frost & Sullivan are always listened to when they speak. We have taken this analysis and used it to our benefit. The areas where we didn’t score as highly as we’d have liked were already our focus for our 2016 Product Road Map. To be considered as a ‘champion’ Aerospace IT solution provider is something we are very proud of”.
