ARGUS Adds FBO Network as New TRAQPak FBO Customer

Cincinnati, OH, October 19, 2010

ARGUS International, Inc. (ARGUS), is proud to welcome the Paragon Aviation Group® as the latest customer of TRAQPak FBO. TRAQPak FBO is ARGUS’ newest market intelligence tool, which they developed specifically for FBOs. TRAQPak FBO is an integrated source of operational, financial, and contact information related to aircraft movements at any airport within the reach of the U.S. Air Traffic Control system.

“We are very excited about our new partnership with ARGUS’ TRAQPak FBO,” states Megan Barnes, Vice President of Paragon Aviation Group®. “I believe the overall benefits along with the sales and marketing opportunities that this program will bring to our network will be tremendous. The ARGUS team of experts has done a fantastic job meeting our requirements in a very short time.  TRAQPak FBO will enable our network to share information and benefit from being a unified group.”

TRAQPak FBO was developed by ARGUS in conjunction with representatives from the FBO community, ensuring a product that meets their specific needs. ARGUS surveyed FBOs around the country, of all sizes, to determine the features and tools considered most important to them. This cooperative effort has produced an operational, financial, analytical, customer service, and marketing tool that is unparalleled in its capabilities. TRAQPak FBO is a real-time flight tracking web portal with fully integrated functionality driven by FlightView® near real-time air traffic information, JETNET® owner/operator contact information, and ARGUS TRAQPak historic activity data and analysis. TRAQPak data is serial-number specific aircraft arrival and departure information on all IFR flights in the US (including Alaska and Hawaii).

“We are thrilled to see so many satisfied TRAQPak FBO customers like Paragon Aviation Group®,” said Shirley Mason, ARGUS International Senior Vice President of Market Intelligence. “The program was developed specifically for the FBO community and their unique needs. TRAQPak FBO provides each user with highly useful tools and information to help them grow their business and enhance services levels. We are continuing to add functionality to this program as requested by our customers. Our main goal is to make their life a little simpler.”

“I truly believe that ARGUS’ TRAQPak FBO system, along with their research and reporting capabilities, will be a major contributor to our success in creating a cohesive group at Paragon Aviation Group®,” added Barnes.
