Creating your on-line approved supplier list.
Moving your approved supplier list on-line is a great idea - easy to manage, gives you "at a glance" approval status, is free of charge* and keeps you up to date as to changes.
Once you've created an AvSMART login and password, you can start to build your list, and add any fully registered supplier. Upon logging in, you are taken to your control panel, and from here you can search individual suppliers, by typing their name in the search field, or you can leave this field blank, click search, and reveal the full list.
Some of the suppliers show a cog symbol. This means that they have registered at the invitation of one of our AvSMART Total airlines or MRO's, are a "Limited" registration, and only the requesting airline is able to add those suppliers, and has access to the full audit. Please contact us if you would like to add these suppliers - AvSMART Total may be a good fit for you, or we can approach these suppliers to discuss extending the accessibility of their form. You can read more about AvSMART Total here.
For fully registered suppliers, clicking the plus sign adds that supplier to your list, and any time that supplier makes updates you will receive an email with the details of the updated fields. As you add the supplier, you will be asked whether you wish to advise the supplier they are now on your list. Clicking "Yes" means suppliers are more likely to keep their self-audit current, since they are aware you are monitoring them via the system.
A green plus sign indicates the self-audit is current. Some suppliers will show an amber or red plus sign. This means they are in their final month before updates are required, or they have gone over a year since last updating. Where this is the case, you will see an envelope icon. Clicking this will send the supplier a message to let them know you would like to see updates made.

A note for suppliers: by telling all your customers your self-audit can be found at AvSMART.aero, you will receive less and less paper forms to complete, and will only have one on-line form to keep updated. We will cover this in more detail in a future article.
