FuelPlus Newsletter – Q12017

A word from our CEO

“Over the last year or so, we’ve been focusing on product innovation, growing our business and on making sure our existing and new customers are successful.  Here are some of the things we’ve been working on…

  • Expanded customer service and development teams in the EU.
  • Improved architecture in our product for airlines, Airline One. It’s now more flexible and modular so that it can be offered as Software as a Service (SAAS) and you can subscribe to just the features you need.
  • Improved features in Airline One. We have thoroughly researched the aviation fuel management process and built modules that address common issues at each key stage using automation and workflows.
  • An innovative new product for fuel suppliers, Supplier One.
  • New leaders and offices in the US and Asia.

Looking forward, we have also been trialing some game-changing new products that we think will transform aviation fuel management in the coming years, and have been continuing our work with IATA to create industry-wide standards for tender documents. It’s certainly an exciting time. We will keep you up-to-date with the key developments through these newsletters, but for more news, comments and industry analysis, please subscribe to our blog.”

Klaus-Peter Warnke, CEO of the FuelPlus Group.

On Thursday 6 April, we hosted a free webinar: Airline Fuel Management – The biggest challenges and how the leaders are addressing the problem.
