Essential Jet Solutions extends integration with Leon to provide end-to-end fuel purchasing and ordering automation. Essential Jet Solutions, an innovative portfolio management service, and Leon a Flight Management System, are together extending their integration and automation capabilities to further optimise operational efficiency and cost control for the mutual clients.
Today’s market and geopolitical climate present many challenges for the business aviation operator. Rising prices, unpredictable and short notice supply challenges, increased operational workload, and recruitment challenges. All of these contribute to a squeeze on resources and an ever-increasing need for cost control and efficiency in operations. Essential Jet Solutions’ full-service portfolio management offers operators access to expert knowledge, global network, and proprietary processes. With EJS working as an integral member of the team, operators benefit from a partnership that delivers cost and time-saving efficiencies whilst delivering increased profitability. As a progressive and client-focused scheduling software provider, Leon worked on increasing the level of automation between Leon and the EJS system Meteor, therefore increasing the value and operational efficiency provided through their system. At every step EJS clients benefit from daily, weekly, and monthly monitoring of fuel pricing and supply options, ensuring they receive the most value from fuel and ground handling purchases for each and every flight. From the point of contracting, sourcing, ordering, and confirming services through to invoice reconciliation, compliance, and reporting; EJS provides oversight and automation, thus returning additional time to operators’ dispatch and finance teams allowing them to focus on other tasks essential to the successful management of their trips. The enhancement of Leon integration allows full details of the supplier and pricing combinations selected by EJS, within Meteor for each flight, to be automatically populated within Leon; along with notifying that the fuel has been ordered, confirmed, and a copy of the fuel release attached. This automation sees these details transferred in real-time and automatically included on the ‘Crew Tripsheet’, saving an operator considerable administration time while ensuring they benefit from the best pricing option available. Post-flight, the integration automatically updates trip specific information recorded in Leon(including fuel uplift volumes and delivery tickets) with Meteor. Invoices can then be reconciled to ensure compliance on pricing, uplift volumes, and taxes; any anomalies identified will be managed by the team to minimise and correct any overspend. Saving Operations and Finance teams considerable administration. EJS and Leon are excited to share this development with Leon users and are committed to the continued development of services to improve the workflows, cost management, and profitability of our clients.
