From its early days, ORIX have used the Leasepoint® system to help them manage their fleet. ORIX’s initial use of the system focussed on its Contracts Management and Technical Expenditure functionality. More recently, ORIX wanted its ever-increasing volumes of technical data to be centrally managed. They decided to go for a best of breed approach and investigated both in-house and external options. Commenting on their decision to use the Technical module of Leasepoint to satisfy their requirements, ORIX stated:
“The rich functionality of Leasepoint offered the best solution to our requirements. In addition, by extending the footprint of what we already had, we now have a central repository for all our commercial aircraft leasing data. This gives us better access, more accuracy and full control of a vital commercial asset that is often overlooked – our data. This is a major factor internally and also to those whose aircraft we manage. Leasepoint continues to help us provide a world-class service to our clients”
The new technical module allows ORIX to store detailed technical specifications in the system. Combining this with utilisation data, the Leasepoint system will help ORIX to predict with great accuracy when major maintenance events should take place. In addition, the ability to readily produce accurate marketing documentation from Leasepoint makes placing an aircraft when it comes to the end of its lease a much easier process.
In addition to this, ORIX plan to further extend their use of the Leasepoint system by using new functionality which is currently in the final stages of testing:
This eases the process of collecting data from regular technical inspections. The resulting data can then be quickly and accurately transferred into the Leasepoint central data repository:
- Data in Leasepoint exported to excel format
- Collected by inspector
- Imported back into Leasepoint central data repository
- Import process provides facilities for on-screen validation, review and modification
Maintenance reserve exposure analysis
This allows the user to monitor Coverage and Exposure for Maintenance Costs for their Portfolio based on agreed Operator Maintenance Reserve Rates. The System provides detailed analysis in both list and graphical form of Maintenance Coverage and Exposure for Aircraft.
“The new functionality provided by Leasepoint will enable ORIX to offer a more efficient and complete service to our ever-expanding customer base” commented Eoin Kelly, Vice President, ORIX Aviation.
“Our investment in Leasepoint has delivered measurable benefits to our bottom line over the years and working in partnership with AMT-SYBEX, we plan to continue to offer a superior service to our worldwide customer base in Europe, The Americas and Asia.”
The aircraft leasing world is a dynamic one and part of the reason for ORIX’s success to date is its ability to adapt to this ever-changing environment. AMT-SYBEX’s ongoing software development makes Leasepoint a mature application and allows ORIX to advance within the industry.
The Leasepoint system has helped ORIX to manage their operations. With it, they are well positioned to continue to take advantage of incremental business opportunities as they appear.
