LAUNCH Technical Workforce Solutions formally introduced eLAUNCHNow, a new online platform powered by StaffNow.aero. The digital platform is a first of its kind in the US aviation industry and is designed specifically for matching aircraft technicians with the many open contract positions available in aviation maintenance and manufacturing. LAUNCH and StaffNow.aero, headquartered in Spain, have partnered to bring this technology to the United States through an exclusive license for the aviation industry. The software will revolutionize contract hiring by delivering digitalization, speed, transparency and optimization.
“eLAUNCHNow is a game changer for contingent labor in the aviation maintenance industry,” said Mike Guagenti, LAUNCH CEO. “As we’ve continued to seek ways to speed up our hiring process, we encountered the StaffNow.aero platform with our client in Puerto Rico. We were impressed by its capabilities and learned of its extensive use throughout Europe. By digitalizing the LAUNCH database of mechanics, we’ll use technology to match candidates directly with our clients and greatly reduce the time to hire. No more endless resume submissions, document reviews and requests for feedback. We are creating an advanced process offering more transparency and control to both our contract technicians and our clients.”
StaffNow Co-CEO, Mariya Vinzens, added, “StaffNow.aero has optimized the process of candidate sourcing and vetting for our MRO clients in Europe. We successfully addressed the main pain points of the players involved – speed, transparency and timely feedback – something that only a digital solution could achieve. As our partner and a leading staffing firm in the US market, LAUNCH will enable us to offer a unique product and bring the sourcing for aviation talent to the next level – the digital era.”
eLAUNCHNowTM is currently in beta testing with a selection of LAUNCH clients and contractors. LAUNCH will plan to roll out the platform companywide once the testing and customization for the US market is complete later this year.
