In mid-January, it was announced that portions of the aviation consultancy Seabury Group would be acquired by Accenture.
Bijoy Mechery, president & CEO of Seabury Enterprise Solutions, says the acquisition will not affect Seabury’s Alkym MRO software, as the application is owned by his Solutions unit, which is not part of the Accenture transaction. Seabury Enterprise Solutions is part of the ongoing, non-acquired concern, Seabury Capital.
Seabury issued three major releases of Alkym software in 2016 and recently added productivity features for third-party MROs and airline base maintenance. Further enhancements will include a mobile solution for maintenance execution. The software is used by 80 customers in 40 countries.
Mechery also notes that Seabury currently does other aircraft-maintenance consulting and support work and will continue to do so in the future through its sister-business SGI Aviation.
SGI is scheduled to become part of the Seabury Capital businesses upon the sale of the other business units being acquired by Accenture. The acquisition of these latter units will be completed when regulatory reviews in United States and Europe are complete, which is anticipated to occur within 60 days of the sale announcement that occurred on January 19.
