NEW YORK, June 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- MySky, the only AI-powered spend management platform designed to bring order to the private aviation industry, today announced a strategic agreement with S&P Global Platts, the leading independent provider of information, benchmark prices and analytics for the energy and commodities markets. Under the terms of the agreement MySky clients will be able access S&P Global Platts' comprehensive database of global jet fuel price assessments, in an effort to construct the most precise benchmarking tool on fuel costs for private aviation owners, operators and consultants. This new capability will enhance MySky's existing platform, making it the most reliable source of information available.

The MySky platform brings financial transparency to the industry for the first time, providing users with proprietary IT tools that automate essential tasks including data administration, benchmarking, budgeting, and reporting. Already backed by 15 million data points, the spend management platform's database will expand exponentially as a result of this partnership. In turn, MySky users will have increased control and visibility into how their money is being spent, empowering them to make smarter financial decisions. Additionally, the inclusion of S&P Global Platts jet fuel price assessment data will help establish a more fair and dynamic competitive landscape for industry suppliers, allowing them to accurately benchmark fuel costs.

"At MySky, it is our mission to equip our clients with the state-of-the-art tools to effectively and efficiently manage the costs of their assets," said Kirill Kim, co-founder and CEO of MySky. "Our agreement with S&P Global Platts brings a new level of transparency to the private aviation industry, strengthening our database so that we can provide our customers with the information they need to achieve long-term financial success and drive the industry forward."

Amidst current global uncertainty, owners, operators and consultants are showing a heightened interest in spend management tools like MySky to help ensure financial stability and success for the future. Today's economic climate, paired with a long-time lack of financial order, has made it even more critical for MySky to continue enhancing its capabilities.

"The essential intelligence from S&P Global Platts has helped drive innovation across numerous energy and commodities industries, and we are excited to work with MySky to bring these same capabilities to private aviation to make a long-lasting and positive impact on the industry," said Silvina Aldeco-Martinez, Head of Product Management, S&P Global Platts.

Operating across Europe, the Americas and the CIS region, MySky reported 60% growth in the first quarter of 2020. Its unique position as an independent, third-party player has established it as a trusted partner for all industry stakeholders.
