BAE Systems Regional Aircraft is a division of BAE Systems based in Hatfield, Hertfordshire and is a leading global provider of managed solutions for aircraft support services and engineering and was the world's third largest provider of commercial aircraft for lease.
We developed a web-based app to manage their fleet of commercial aircraft for lease
BAE Systems had a large team of people spread throughout the globe who managed multi-million pound commercial aircraft lease contracts. Their requirements were as follows:
- Secure centralised data silo accessible via an Internet connection
- Store and track sales leads
- Add and manage prospects
- Manage sales teams
- Provide management with statistics on salesperson performance (leads/conversions)
- View and manage aircraft availability and idle fleet status
- Store aircraft technical documents
- A robust disaster recovery plan to ensure recovery and protection of critical data in the event of IT failure
New Media Aid developed a secure, bespoke web app which met or exceeded all the customer objectives. We developed the web app in the object-orientated programming language "C#", integrated with an enterprise-level MS SQL database and hosted the solution on a Windows 2012 datacentre server.
A disaster recovery plan (DRP) which documented the process we would follow to recover and protect business data in the event of a disaster was agreed with the customer.
A source code escrow agreement was offered to mitigate the risk of working with an agile, boutique app development company such as New Media Aid.
BAE Systems management were very happy with the results due to end-user buy-in, increased productivity of the business development staff and the ease of management reporting as well as CRM (Customer Relationship Management). In fact, the person who commissioned the app received an internal BAE Systems award!
New Media Aid has developed a number of advanced, bespoke apps for BAE Systems and we are happy to recommend them for bespoke app development.
