How CHRONO AVIATION OVERCAME
THE CHALLENGES OF GROWTH
with Veryon TRACKING+
Veryon Tracking+ (formerly Rusada ENVISION) has transformed Chrono's
rapidly growing operation by seamlessly integrating with their
in-house planning system and bringing their team onto one solution.
Chrono Aviation currently operates a fleet of 14 aircraft, employs 300 people, and manages two maintenance facilities.
Due to several years of rapid growth, in 2019 Chrono was seeking a scalable and modern software solution to help with some of the operational headaches it was experiencing. They decided that Veryon Tracking+ was the solution to fix these issues and support their growth in the years to come.
About the customer
Chrono Aviation is a Canadian-based group of companies providing charter, cargo, and maintenance services.
Its fleet of Boeing 737s, Pilatus PC-12s, Beechcraft 1900Ds, and De Havilland Dash 8s provide charter services across Canada and the U.S., including to locations in the Northern and Arctic territories, while Cargo services are available globally.
Due to several years of rapid growth, Chrono was seeking a modern software solution to help with some of their operational headaches. Chrono's various departments - Sales, Maintenance, Ground Service, and others were using an array of systems to manage their data and processes. With larger aircraft joining the fleet, Chrono had more complexity than ever in their operation and were looking for a scalable solution that would integrate with their existing in-house planning system.
The implementation of Veryon Tracking+ brought significant benefits to Chrono's operations. The integration of Tracking+ into their existing system meant they were able to bring their team into one solution giving them the benefit of more defined internal processes, increased visibility into their operation, and improved aircraft reliability across their fleet.
"With our previous system, we struggled to track everything that the business wanted tracked, and this was only being compounded by our levels of growth. Veryon Tracking+ had all of the features and capabilities we were looking for in a solution and has helped overcome the challenges we were facing as a business."

Overcoming the challenges of growth
Upon implementing Veryon Tracking+, Chrono now has a single source of truth for their entire operation and the digital nature of Tracking+ greatly improves transparency and accessibility.
In a growing operation, you need a solution that will scale with you. Veryon seamlessly integrated with Chrono's existing system, which meant a rapid, smooth adpotion of the platform for the team.
Communicating across departments seamlessly
With their operations expanding, issues with tracking transactions, requisitions, and billing were starting to grow. Veryon Tracking+ allows Chrono to track all of their inventory and capture extensive transaction logs efficiently.
Maintaining regulatory compliance
The addition of larger aircraft to their fleet, such as their Boeing 737, led to more complexity in their operations and more items to track. Veryon Fleet Management gives them a high-level overview of each aircraft in their fleet, showing its serviceability, number of defects, assigned base, flying hours, and more. From here users can drill down into each aircraft's individual dashboard which displays a whole host of information.
Maintenance forecasting allows Chrono to plan ahead based on an array of metrics and permutations. Once maintenance events are forecasted, work packs can be created and scheduled with ease.
In conclusion, Veryon Tracking+ has transformed Chrono's fleet maintenance, making their operations more efficient and reliable. By implementing Veryon Tracking+, they were able to:
Optimize Workflows and Reduce Redundancy: Veryon streamlined maintenance processes by efficiently eliminating redundant approaches, resulting in valuable time and resource savings. It enabled the team to address issues in a structured and efficient manner.
Control Regulatory Compliance: Veryon uses Chrono's real-time data to present a high-level overview of each aircraft in the fleet. With the ability to drill down into individual aircraft views, the team can easily view the status of their fleet and efficiently plan maintenance.
Improve Inventory Management: Team members can manage their inventory more effectively by tracking transactions, requisitions, and billing digitally.
