Astra Aviation Services, the flight services provider for Africa, has signed an agreement with FBO One from Amsterdam Software to provide its online operational management. The new system will provide enhanced logistics across all its front and back office departments to enable Astra Aviation Services to provide a superior service offering and facilitate increased efficiency to all its customers across its locations in nine African countries.

Astra Aviation Services specialises in providing support services to commercial, cargo and business aviation clientele in Africa including operational support, ramp handling, catering and fuel supply services. Together these services at each of its locations currently generate a huge amount of planning, paperwork, communications and logistics. The FBO One software will offer an individual picture of each and every customer's activity as well as 'the bigger picture' and help to meet the company's requirements between all departments more quickly and more efficiently. FBO One's online product has the added benefit of being accessible on any (mobile) device further enhancing workflow efficiency.

Designed originally to serve the business aviation sector, FBO One has and continues to evolve. Its software can be customised to serve the requirements of different sectors including business, cargo and commercial operations like those at Astra Aviation. In fact, Astra Aviation represents one of the first companies working within all three sectors to sign up with FBO One.

"We are very excited to have selected leading provider FBO One as our software management system. Our decision reflects our desire to provide our clients with the highest quality service from operational handling to catering to providing accurate and timely invoicing. The capability to customise it to our own unique service levels is an obvious added advantage enabling us to serve all our client groups. We are already experiencing some of the many benefits it offers." comments Phil Eyre, Director and Founder, Astra Aviation Services.

Ries Vriend, CEO Amsterdam Software adds: "FBO One was originally designed to support international FBO networks and has grown a lot since its inception in 2008. Astra Aviation's particular requirements across its client groups are all provided for including its international operations, remote working coordination, service arrangements and auditing and billing in multiple currencies. Astra's customers and suppliers alike will benefit from the FBO One ecosystem."
