Textron Aviation Introduces New Online Customer Portal

As part of its ongoing commitment to enhancing support for its customers, Textron Aviation Inc., a Textron Inc. (NYSE:TXT) company, rolls out a new, web-based customer portal which allows customers to seamlessly manage their aircraft maintenance and provides increased transparency and efficient communication when aircraft service is required.

“Textron Aviation’s aircraft play an important role in the productivity and success of our customers, and the service team continues to develop solutions to minimize aircraft downtime. The new customer portal is yet another example of how we are investing to deliver on that commitment,” says Kriya Shortt, senior vice president, Customer Service. “From the beginning, our customers were integral to the design and development process, both through providing feedback on the portal’s features and in testing the final product. The result is an intuitive platform that allows customers to more efficiently manage their aircraft maintenance. And just a few months since rolling out the customer portal, we have already surpassed 500 customers enrolled and actively using the platform.”

The customer portal allows individual owners or directors of maintenance to track an aircraft through its entire maintenance cycle and is designed to reduce the aircraft’s downtime. Accessible through any device at any time, owners, operators, directors of maintenance and technicians can manage numerous tasks within the customer portal, including initiating service requests, tracking maintenance events, ordering parts, reviewing and approving maintenance tasks, viewing invoice history and paying invoices online.

Rolling out to customers in phases throughout the remainder of the year, the customer portal is just the latest addition to Textron Aviation’s full suite of support solutions. The company has focused its investments on simplifying access to factory-direct support solutions which most recently include: 1View, the company’s new technical publications platform; optimization of its eCommerce parts-ordering platform; same-day invoicing; and 1CALL localization for customers in Europe and Central and South America, which streamlines support during unscheduled maintenance events.
