Exchange feature

With the increased interest in exchange transactions, the exchange feature was added to the IATA Smarthub Connector module in 2020.

Exchanging parts lowers total costs

  • Instead of purchasing a broken part from the market, the part can be replaced by doing an exchange. It lowers costs and prevents filling the customer’s inventories.
  • Since most exchange parts are available on short notice, they can be used to fulfill urgent demands such as Aircraft On Ground (AOG).
  • With the increased interest in exchange transactions it became a priority to include this feature into the Connector module of the IATA MRO SmartHub.

Effective and integrated exchange processes

  • The IATA MRO SmartHub exchange feature is seamlessly integrated into the existing processes and functionalities.
  • Suppliers are now able to list parts for sale and/or exchange on the Connector. To specify a listing for exchange, a set of basic parameters must be specified: exchange fee, core value and core return time. In addition, a set of optional parameters about the exchange offer is available: mark up on repair costs, additional time and fee to return the core.
