Rotorcorp Takes The Guesswork Out of Parts Ordering With Live Stock Updates

September 02, 2021

Ecommerce Innovator

In 2018 Rotorcorp quietly launched the first of its kind E-commerce platform committed to online sale of parts for Robinson R22, R44 and R66 helicopters to a world-wide customer base.  In that time, we have continued to make relatively small iterative improvements to the technical aspects and the user experience of the shopping tool.  Robinson helicopter owners, operators and maintainers from around the world now widely enjoy the ability to buy the helicopter parts they need from a trusted and qualified supplier without the constraints of language, local time, or currency differences.

Real Time Inventory Status

As more customers began utilizing the Rotorcorp webstore, they expressed the desire to quickly and easily confirm stock levels to help better inform purchasing decisions when factoring lead time, shipping and other considerations.   After several months of development and testing, Rotorcorp customers can now view live stock levels and quantities on- hand for more than 3200 of the nearly 10,000 part numbers on the Rotorcorp shelf.  While we cant stock every Robinson part, Rotorcorp uses historical sales data and detailed forecasting to make sure that the most in-demand parts are on the shelf and ready to ship when our customer needs them!

2021 Inventory Growth

Everyone is feeling the crunch on their flight and maintenance operations created by labor shortages, extended lead times and logistics delays as the world emerges from the global COVID-19 pandemic.  With the largest Robinson spares inventory outside of the factory, Rotorcorp is uniquely positioned to respond to customer spare parts needs in a timely and cost effective manner.

So far in 2021, Rotorcorp has increased its inventory levels by more than 50% and is on track to doubling on-hand inventory by the end of the year.  This expansion allows us to be more likely to have more parts for more customers when needed.
