TrueNorth Avionics

How does an emerging company compete with larger, more established industry giants and actually win? It sounds challenging, but TrueNorth Avionics has proven it’s possible—thanks to the power of innovation and the right PLM solution.

TrueNorth Avionics provides airborne telecommunications technologies to large cabin, premium aircrafts. With a full suite of telecommunications offerings, the company’s technology helps working professionals stay connected and conduct business even while in flight. In just 5 years, more than 25% of Fortune 50 firms have chosen to incorporate TrueNorth Avionics into their business air fleets. 

"Time to market is very critical for us, and so is efficiency," says Chris Bartlett, director of product management at TrueNorth Avionics. "We need to continually incorporate the latest features into our products. At the same time, we have to stay quick, be more nimble and accomplish more with less."

TrueNorth Avionics turned to Arena BOMControl to help maintain tight control over product data while innovating and accelerate time to market. To share their fascinating story, Arena has put together a case study on the company’s unique business challenges and the results they achieved.
