Everyone is probably familiar with phrase – “work smarter, not harder.” Well, as cliché as it might sound, FlightBridge recognized the need for flight departments, pilots, FBOs, and service providers to work together and eliminate the wasted time, energy, and money spent trying to coordinate all trip-related services.
I remember my days working in a FBO and being on hold over the phone for ten plus minutes trying to make hotel reservations, while greeting arriving customers and trying to make coffee for a crew member. Each week, I would literally spend hours on the phone or browsing through different websites trying to book rental cars, catering, hotel rooms and more. It was very frustrating, to say the least, because I felt so much of my time could be better utilized.
FlightBridge changed all that with their streamlined booking and management platform that provides a centralized system with all reservations in one place. It’s like the Expedia of the GA industry!
Not only does FlightBridge help with time management for FBOs, but they are also a valuable resource for flight departments and pilots. Planning trip services and FBO reservations is now easier and more efficient than ever because your account allows you to manage your own contacts, aircrafts, and loyalty numbers in your profile plus receive negotiated rates. If you are using a flight scheduling system like BART, Avianis, Schedaero, FOS, PFM or many others, they have a selection of technology partners they integrate with to allow for simplified processes and real-time confirmations in the preferred system you rely on.
FlightBridge has added a new feature to their website called “Help Center.” Here you can find specific articles that will walk you through how to use each of their features with quick start guides and step-by-step detailed instructions so that you get the most out of their software.
Communication, time, and productivity have improved among this network of trusted partners, vendors, FBOs, and operators because of FlightBridge’s unique platform. And that is what I call working smarter, not harder.
