Market forces say now’s the time to update crew management software.

If you ask an IT manager at a regional airline, there is never a really GOOD time to make a big change to major software systems.  A busy airline has so many moving parts that making any change can seem daunting.  

But several market drivers indicate that sooner is better than later to make a change:

  • Rapid growth of the commercial aviation sector, an increase in commercial aircraft and passenger traffic; and the addition of airport terminals all spur the market.
  • Stable commercial aviation outlook signals growth opportunities for the crew management software market.
  • Entry of new airlines in developed and developing countries will boost prospects for regional airlines.
  • Growing international tourism and the consequent increase in air travel are opportunities for the CMS market, particularly in Europe, which captures the largest share of international tourist arrivals.
  • The need for efficient crew management is driving market growth, especially as airlines operate more low-cost long-haul flights.
  • The shortage of skilled and experienced aviation staff and the need for judicious use of resources raise the importance of crew management software.
  • The increasing use of IT  in the aviation sector promotes demand for crew management software, with growing IT budgets of airlines and airports spurring growth opportunities.
  • Safety requirements are receiving more emphasis.
  • Human errors in the aviation industry are more heavily publicized. 
  • The public is concerned about the rising threat of terrorism.
  • Airplane safety incidents are covered extensively and thoroughly by the media, often with crowdsourced video. 
  • Strict regulations governing work hours and safety of crew members raise the importance of crew management software.
  • The proliferation of tablets and smartphones and the advancement in mobile-based apps increase opportunities for remote and traveling crew members to access systems. 
  • The rise of smart airports emphasizes the need for crew management, and the technologies with tremendous potential to transform crew management software solutions market are Big Data, AI, and IoT.
  • The growing use of cloud-based software solutions enables efficient management of crew operations, and the evolving crew management needs of the aviation industry emphasize the importance of connected crew.
  • The demand for innovative crew management technologies and software solutions gains traction while the challenges confronting the crew management software market should not be ignored.
