Acumen Aviation Announces 2020 Operational Review
Dublin – 10-02-2021:
Acumen Aviation, a leading Aircraft Asset Management Services Company is delighted to release its 2020 Operational Review.
The year 2020 proved to be a challenge for the entire global community as it came to terms with the impact caused by the COVID 19 pandemic. Throughout this period Acumen managed to find innovative ways to support its clients and its global reach helped provide localised support where needed. Acumen continued to develop its capability as a complete asset management company and as part of this strategy it announced its partnering with Blueberry Aviation at the Dublin Aviation Conference week in January 2020. Together they offer cradle to grave asset management from evaluation and sourcing aircraft to managing day to day requirements through to transition and remarketing. Both companies complement each other’s strengths and have successfully created new opportunities to grow the client base.
Acumen is looking to the future so, in order that the industry has the necessary skills and resource to meet future industry needs, the company launched its new training department, under the leadership of Mr Vishwanath Hampanna. This department has seen significant growth over the last year with a total of eleven online external courses conducted throughout the period. Significantly, the culmination of the efforts of Vishwanath and his team was the exciting announcement of a new strategic co-operation agreement with CMS Business School, JAIN (deemed to be University). This presents both parties with an exciting opportunity, combining Acumen’s domain knowledge and experience with CMS’ strong foundation in management education and academic research.
Acumen’s digital business has also continued to be rewarded through the sustained and increased growth of its popular asset management platform, SPARTA. The SPARTA Pay-As-You-Go model continues to expand, attracting new clients, globally. In addition, the launch of its Digital Success Advisory (DSA) has further expanded the digital service offering to clients to meet the needs of today’s evolving market. Through the combined wealth of sector, digital and domain knowledge, Acumen is now assisting clients in optimising performance, driving up profitability and future proofing their businesses.
Acumen’s valuation team added a new service offering too. Acumen began delivering a parts valuation service, which has generated considerable market interest, so watch this space.
