Taking Flight to Save Lives in the Bahamas

Success Story
Database Optimization
Saves Big Bucks

When 3,000 customer service representatives wait 30 minutes to download their schedules every day, there is a big problem. For this retail company, not only did man hours and frustration levels rise, but costs to the company significantly increased, affecting nearly every department along the way.

When it simply got to be too much, they called the database consultants at Soaring Eagle! After analyzing their databases, we created solutions reducing their download time to under two minutes. This saved 28 minutes each day for every customer service representative in the organization, totaling more than 1,500 hours in additional available resources. At $30 an hour per rep, this change in their database system saved the company an average of $45,000 a day! Now that’s the power of database optimization done well.

Flight Database Software

Our Proprietary Flight Software

It’s no secret that the hundreds or thousands of email alerts generated by your database each day get ignored until your customers begin calling to complain. We knew there had to be a better way. After more than four years of research and development, we built Flight, the world’s first IT support software for remote database management.

This proprietary software automates the traditional alert response, notifying you only when there’s a problem that needs to be fixed. With Flight, you can rest easy knowing your systems are working and your customers and employees aren’t having problems accessing the information they need when they need it.

Client Testimonials

While COVID-19 has has presented a challenging time for all, Soaring Eagle has looked not inward, but outward, to see how can keep our clients going though these unprecedented times.

“Soaring Eagle Team; We have not met. I am CEO of a company founded over 30 years ago. Earlier this morning, the COO told me of your gracious offer to forego your billing in April. Thank you. I greatly appreciate it.

We are all facing challenges, the likes of which I have not experienced in my 68 years. While the short term is very unsettling, I continue to be encouraged by the longer term. We are fortunate to work with many strong, capable people in our client companies who are working hard to figure out how to adapt their organizations to a rapidly changing environment.

While I am thankful for your decision regarding the April billing, I am most grateful for the positive impact the Soaring Eagle team has had on our company. We can deliver more consistent service for our clients, and we all worry a bit less because of this. I look forward to a continued working relationship for the future. “
