Our Blu Market asset management solution serves as a vital, strategic management tool empowering the enterprise in effectively assessing, managing and increasing the return-on-investment of large aviation holdings.

 

These holdings represent both a substantial investment and significant risk. Properly assessed, valued and managed, they can produce a sizeable financial return. Achieving this return, though, requires mitigating risk, leveraging all the data at our disposal and a keen understanding of market forces and direction. Blu Miles has developed an asset management platform that provides powervul analytics, integrated business applications and easily implemented modules to track, manage and more profitably move parts through the pipeline. And we do it all on a first-of-its-kind cloud platform that is easy to use and configurable to meet individual client needs. 


Just one of several Blu Miles solutions empowering the aviation industry with digital transformation tools that position clients to compete successfully at the highest level. To view our other innovative solutions.






Unlocking the Value of Aviation Assets


Our intuitive, easy-to-use, online portal manages the end-to-end process from lead generation / assets identification through evaluation and ultimately winning the acquisition of the targeted assets. We arm trading teams with unique insights into parts values and parts relationships (upgrades and configuration changes) that help them source, price and profitably market parts and material.


As a proactive planning and analytics platform, Blu Market ensures our clients have the visibility and prognostics to drive performance to meet their business and financial goals:

  •       Measuring program and business commitments to actual performance
  •       Providing leading indicators to your sales floor (managing commission programs along the way)

Transforming business knowledge into valuable intellectual property, Blu Miles helps create a sustainable and scalable business built on the power of cumulative organizational data versus the knowledge of a few.
