PASSUR and GE Partner to Advance Airline and Airport Operations
Integrating multiple data sources with the Industrial Internet
LE BOURGET, France -- PASSUR Aerospace is partnering with GE Aviation Digital Solutions to leverage GE's domain expertise in software development, design thinking and FastWorks. The work will take place in GE's digital collaboration center in Austin, Texas.
"This agreement is aligned with the goal of supporting the aviation ecosystem with our suppliers and customers to drive efficiency," said Andrew Coleman, chief commercial officer for GE Aviation. "This is a perfect example of working with an innovative partner like PASSUR so they can bring in their customers to discuss new digital solutions to address operational challenges."
With iterative input from their customers, PASSUR is in the process of creating the next generation of aviation intelligence solutions, to address its customers' biggest operational challenges and opportunities with the goal of improving overall airline and airport reliability, service, and cash flow - and is utilizing GE to help accelerate this journey.
"PASSUR partners with its customers to ensure that the best practices from the brightest minds of the industry are reflected in its software solutions," said Jim Barry, PASSUR president and CEO. "GE is bringing the same approach to PASSUR's digital design opportunities by applying the best practices of decision support design to help PASSUR bring leading-edge solutions to its customers."
This partnership will be the kickoff of a design process that will lead to new, transformative capabilities for PASSUR's customers, and will shape the vision and future of PASSUR's integrated suite of solutions. It is an important milestone in both companies' active investment in the Industrial Internet, by advancing the integration of multiple data sources from disparate systems, together with machine learning, onto an integrated decision support solution.
"Another unique aspect of the agreement is that we are leveraging GENIUSLINK™ for the design so we're essentially crowd sourcing the desired outcome from the design workshop to accelerate creative innovation with PASSUR," continued Coleman.
