Headquartered in San Diego, Component Control serves more than 1,100 companies, the majority of which are third-party repair providers, says Andrew Valley, senior vice president of sales. Also among its customers are parts traders and distributors, as well as FBOs and companies that combine some of these functions. Recent additions include Air Atlanta Avia Services and CRS Jet Spares. Other users include AJW Technique. One differentiator, Valley notes, is relatively high revenue per capita among Quantum Control customers.
All Quantum Control customers get a broad set of core modules and a choice of optional modules. The software can be installed as a client/server application or hosted remotely via Amazon or other services. But Quantum Control is not a browser-based application, he says.
A Mobile MRO app is planned for release this year. The touchscreen-enabled, device-agnostic software will allow technicians to see their work assignments, record their time, and sign off on maintenance operations.
Component Control also offers StockMarket.Aero, an e-commerce, parts trading platform. Unlike some competitors in this area, Component Control uses an “advertising-based” model. It’s free to search the data, list your inventory, and send requests for quotes, Valley says. “If you want to show up first or second or in the top five, you can sponsor a group of part numbers—it’s like a Google ad.”
