Portside acquires SeaGil Software Company to expand its portfolio of software solutions for business, private and government aviation

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, January 12, 2022 - Portside, Inc. (Portside) announced today that it has acquired SeaGil Software Company (SeaGil) and its BART scheduling software product suite. Portside’s investment signifies another step the company is taking to expand its product suite which supports business, private, and government aviation flight departments.

The investment will support the continued growth of Portside’s customer base of Part 135 and Part 91 flight departments. After acquiring Professional Flight Management, “PFM”, in July of last year, Portside looks to provide the business aviation market with a range of scheduling solutions. The two scheduling software acquisitions, PFM and BART, serve different market needs and have their own unique competitive advantages.

“Delivering mobile-first scheduling solutions is one of the many ways BART products work to increase accessibility as well as efficiencies for flight departments,” said Alek Vernitsky, CEO of Portside. “We are continuing to make strategic investments in scheduling solutions that can build on our core Portside products including the Owner Portal, Optimizer, ExpensePulseTM, and others, further expanding the tools we offer to flight departments globally. SeaGil delivers a distinct product, and will be complementary to our existing Portside and PFM offerings, further expanding our capabilities to best meet the needs of commercial and private operators alike.”

The BART product suite was first introduced in 1986 and owned by Bradley Tilford and his wife, Kimberly Tilford. Over the last few years, SeaGil has rapidly expanded its customer base, supporting hundreds of operators, over 6,000 aircraft and well over 15,000 crew members globally.

“Brad and the team have worked hard to serve their customers for over 35+ years,” said Kimberly Tilford, CEO, SeaGil Software Company. “Portside’s investment is a validation of our proven growth strategy and product capabilities. The team will remain focused on driving the best outcomes for our customers.”

Following the completion of the acquisition, SeaGil will continue to operate as it does today with a distinct brand, identity, and product focus. Portside’s investment will enable BART to accelerate product development, complete additional integrations, and enhance our customer support capabilities.

Portside Acquires Professional Flight Management (PFM) to Expand Its Portfolio of Technology Solutions for Private, Business & Government Aviation

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.-- Today, Portside announced it has acquired Professional Flight Management (PFM), a leading scheduling and dispatch software platform for corporate flight departments. The combination of Portside and PFM will provide an enhanced suite of software solutions for private, business and government flight departments.

Portside’s mission is to bring modern technology to business aviation. Today, the industry relies on many disconnected systems and manual processes. From streamlining operator communication with aircraft owners through the Portside Owner Portal; to allocating the fleet and crew effectively with Optimizer; to managing the backend expense and billing processes with ExpensePulseTM, Portside continues to provide its customers with innovative solutions addressing their key pain points.

PFM’s mission is to provide a comprehensive set of scheduling, record keeping and reporting applications for corporate, private, and government flight departments. Founded by Bill Figures in 1983, originally born out of a Fortune 100 Company’s flight department, PFM has been led by Bill and Julie Figures, serving customers for almost 40 years. Today, PFM supports hundreds of flight departments, including many of the largest Fortune 500 corporate fleets in the world. Customers choose PFM because they value the Company’s innovative and resilient solutions, 24/7 customer support, and the ability to meet challenging needs faced by complex flight departments operating globally.

Together, Portside and PFM will continue development of private, business and government aviation technology, advance software solutions available to the industry, and accelerate the process to upgrade software for the increasingly mobile-first and cloud-based business aviation ecosystem. The combined company will have a sizable, fast-growing market opportunity and capabilities to drive significant value for customers and the industry.

“Portside’s competitive advantage is our ability to focus on the customer experience and deliver cutting-edge technologies,” said Alek Vernitsky, CEO of Portside. “With PFM, we now gain a deeper understanding of the needs and expectations for the corporate flight departments which will accelerate our vision to support the broader private, business and government aviation industry.”

Continue development of private, business and government aviation technology

Portside and PFM are deeply committed to pushing the industry forward by developing innovative tools. With Portside’s and PFM’s extensive product set, customers will be able to access a greater set of robust capabilities to support the safety, efficiency and collaboration needed to manage a well-run flight department.

Advance software solutions available to the industry

Operators are challenged with the ever-changing requirements imposed on their operation impacting their ability to scale effectively. Whether it be staffing constraints, asset management, regulation, communication tools or mobile accessibility, there are many processes that are currently managed with excel sheets and phone calls that can easily be solved with the right technology. With PFM, Portside takes another step forward in assembling and creating a comprehensive business and government aviation platform.

Accelerate the process to upgrade software

Upgrading complex legacy systems is no easy feat. With Portside’s expertise, PFM products will have a clear path to cloud-based, mobile-first architecture. This will benefit all stakeholders, as upgraded technology will allow operators to maintain a modern operation, while having the flexibility to operate in a resilient way that’s critical for government and corporate customers alike.

“Portside has a bold vision of building an end-to-end technology ecosystem for corporate flight departments and we have seen them continue to grow their product suite at a fast pace focused on serving the end user,” said Bill Figures, Founder of PFM. “We always prided ourselves in treating our customers as family and are confident that our customers will be in good hands and will get added value as we join Portside,” added Julie Figures.
