ARGUS Announces New Version of TRAQPak FBO™ Program

Cincinnati, Ohio, April 9, 2012….ARGUS International’s marketing intelligence division is proud to announce the new version release of the widely used TRAQPak FBO. TRAQPak FBO is a web based live flight tracking aircraft activity analysis and market intelligence reporting tool used by FBOs, air charter operators, aircraft management companies, and other aviation service providers to analyze the current and historical trends of aircraft activity. The new version, TRAQPak FBO v2, offers a wide range of enhanced new tools and features that will simplify and improve flight tracking for all FBO employees.

“Nearly 2 years ago, ARGUS launched the first version of TRAQPak FBO and today our program is being utilized by network affiliated and independent FBO’s around the country,” said Shirley Mason, ARGUS Senior Vice President and the product manager for all market intelligence products and services. “The new version of TRAQPak FBO embodies ARGUS’ forward thinking vision and commitment to the growing needs of its customers. Some of the great new features that simplify usability in TRAQPak FBO v2 are the ability to add unique color codes to any aircraft allowing you to track VIP’s, based customers, etc., and now you can change the activity views in the program to suit your needs; choose between full map, no map, and the standard map and grid side by side view.”

TRAQPak allows customers to monitor live airport arrival and departure information, code aircraft with custom meanings unique to their operation, review flight history data of specific aircraft, determine aircraft base information, check anticipated fuel purchase estimates for each aircraft, and view activity at other airports.
