Tracking every drop of jet fuel: a case for automation
This panel discussion will review the potential of best practices for automating the aviation fueling business. Fuel, like cash, needs to be reconciled and accounted for every day by all those involved, with a minimal amount of repetitive data entry. Today’s manual methods create challenges and the amount of capital invested in fuel requires a fuel ticket infrastructure as effective as that of the banking industry.
Panelists will look at improving the fuel ticket process with a critical accounting view and instant data visibility, as well as future evolution once digital data has been established. Panelists will include a fuel supply company, an into-wing service provider, an airline representative and a technology expert. The discussion will highlight opportunities to improve workflow along the custody chain for fuel from an operations and financial perspective, along with the benefits.
