Avionics shops can provide ADS-B quotes without any barriers.
Here at the Equip ADS-B Marketplace, we try our utmost to service both our core groups of constituents – aircraft owners and avionics shops. Since our launch, they have provided great suggestions that will make it easier for you to get equipped. Here are just a few of the new features that will soon be available on the Equip ADS-B Marketplace.
More quotes for aircraft owners
Aircraft owners told us that they like the Equip ADS-B Marketplace platform and they like the actionable advice we provide. The one thing they said they would love to see is more quotes! We identified the obstacle and removed it.
More aircraft information for avionics shops at no cost
After speaking with several shops, we learned they were hesitant to provide quotes because of the service charge. They said with the upcoming installation crunch rapidly approaching; they are booked to capacity already. They asked us to remove the charge because they simply don’t need to pay for extra business at this point, no matter how small.
They also said that despite the relative sophistication of our project listings, they told us they wanted more information about each aircraft’s surveillance and navigation system to know which of their solutions may be appropriate to quote. By the end of the month, we will have a new project listing system in place that will provide shops with every piece of information they need to accurately evaluate any individual aircraft, and instantly recognize whether the aircraft listing is one they can competitively bid for.
New revenue model benefits everyone
Consequently, we have decided to fundamentally adjust our revenue model to serve our core constituents better. All features of the Equip ADS-B Marketplace are going to be 100% completely free to use from now on — for both the avionics shops as well as the owners. This will eliminate any barriers and encourage shops to deliver more quotes for our aircraft owners.
We have replaced our former revenue model with a gratuity-based structure. Individual aircraft owners and avionics shops are invited to give a voluntary contribution – at whatever level they select – if they feel we have saved them time, money, or both, in the course of the purchase, installation, and exchange of their ADS-B equipment. We have confidence in our client’s generous giving to sufficiently cover the costs of our operations, especially after they realize how much we have saved them. The Equip ADS-B Marketplace saves each constituents dozens of hours and hundreds or even thousands of dollars.
We will make a big announcement outlining the changes in the next couple weeks. Make sure to stay tuned.
For now, spread the word that the Equip ADS-B Marketplace has not only unmatched convenience but now it is completely free to use for aircraft owners and avionics shops as too!
