Retail inMotion Strengthens Partnership with Stobart Air

Stobart Air, one of Retail inMotion’s first technology customers, has chosen to ink its contract with the company for up to four more years. The partnership extension is a strong testament to the reliability and long-term benefit of the Retail inMotion software, which has been used by the airline since 2010.

Retail inMotion has supported Stobart Air through a strong period of growth for the airline and now provides them with more than forty devices for processing payments on board their flights. Additionally, Stobart Air uses Retail inMotion’s vPack module to help manage effective operations for the airline’s onboard services, master control modules to maintain and monitor back-office functions, and vRec to reconcile sales and inventory.

“Signing this partnership with Stobart Air is a clear confirmation that Retail inMotion’s technology delivers results for its customers,” commented Sarah Conlon, Director of Account Management at Retail inMotion. “We are thrilled to be strengthening and expanding our working relationship with Stobart Air and look forward to supporting them in the years ahead.”

Graeme Buchanan, Managing Director of Stobart Air, said: “Stobart Air is delighted to extend our partnership with Retail inMotion until 2022. We have enjoyed a long and successful partnership, working together since 2010.

“Retail inMotion provide valuable customer insight, expert procurement knowledge, and stock and inventory management, all of which aids us in keeping our standards of customer service high.

“We are a growing airline with ambitious plans, including route network expansion, fleet modernisation, and pilot recruitment. Working with Retail inMotion allows us to plan for the future with the secure knowledge that we will deliver an ever-improving in-flight experience to our passengers.”
