Cloudcards flies high on deal with CAE Parc

The Limerick-headquartered company founded by brothers Brian and Barry Fitzgerald will supply CAE Parc Aviation with its aircraft transition and inspection tool CARDS.

Irish aviation software company Cloudcards has signed a major partnership deal with Canadian-owned Irish-based company CAE Parc Aviation.

The Limerick-headquartered company founded by brothers Brian and Barry Fitzgerald will supply CAE Parc Aviation with its aircraft transition and inspection tool CARDS.

CARDS is a cloud-based software platform that has been successfully deployed in over 300 aircraft transition projects worldwide to manage the delivery and redelivery of leased aircraft, as well as inspection and maintenance projects.

Designed and built on Salesforce, CARDS helps simplify the management of complex aviation assets. It offers both remote and on-site auditing capabilities of aircraft documentation as well as physical aircraft inspection via its mobile application. 

Bill Blake, CEO of Cloudcards and Don Salmon, head of Aircraft Leasing Services at CAE Parc Aviation.

CAE Parc Aviation’s technical services division selected the CARDS system following an extensive review of providers to improve efficiencies across aircraft transition.

Cloudcards was established in 2013 and recently opened offices in Dublin.

The past year has been its most successful yet as it capitalises on the booming aircraft leasing business. The company is currently closing its second funding round, details for which will be announced in the New Year.

“It is a massive endorsement for Cloudcards to be chosen to partner with CAE Parc Aviation, a highly reputable company and one that recognises the importance of innovative solutions in the ever-evolving aircraft leasing industry,” said Bill Blake, CEO of Cloudcards.

“This partnership will help expand our global footprint further and build on a very successful 12 months for the company.”

With offices in Ireland, Singapore, the US, Japan, Vietnam and China, CAE Parc Aviation’s technical services division specialises in supporting the full aircraft lifecycle, from aircraft build and delivery to operation and transition.

“We are delighted to partner with Cloudcards who have a solid reputation in the industry and a solution that meets our needs and those of our customers, while dramatically reducing the cost of aircraft asset management,” said Don Salmon, head of Aircraft Leasing Services in CAE Parc Aviation.

“Not only is CARDS easily adopted but it can be used worldwide in any jurisdiction and covers all aspects of an aircraft transition process.”
