Available for Android and Apple, the new app features all-new technology
for a seamless user experience, providing Jet Card holders with a fast
and efficient way to easily reserve and confirm travel plans and receive
live flight updates. Through the app, Sentient Cardholders can
completely manage their accounts, from quoting and booking flights on
demand to reviewing Sentient’s proprietary Sentient Certified™ safety
flight reports, managing passenger information, receiving flight details
and rating their experience immediately upon touchdown. The app also
offers a 24/7 live chat feature, as well as localized recommendations
for some of the offers available exclusively to Cardholders through
Sentient’s extensive benefits program, including complimentary nights at
renowned hotels such as The Peninsula Hotels in New York and Chicago and
The Little Nell in Aspen, as well as exclusive retail offerings at
Brioni, Roberto Coin and Baccarat.
“Sentient Jet is committed to offering private jet travel solutions to
our Cardholders with the utmost flexibility and convenience,” said
Andrew Collins, President and CEO of Sentient Jet. “The launch of our
new app brings us to the next level in servicing our Cardholders’
personal and business travel needs by allowing them to book flights more
quickly and easily than ever before, while providing them with the same
unparalleled service and commitment to safety they have come to expect.”
Coming at a pivotal moment for the brand, the new app arrives following
Sentient’s best-performing sales summer since 2007, as well as its
greatest summer flight volume in seven years. Sentient’s record-breaking
results continue to underscore the thriving private aviation market and
the growing trend to fly private with the flexibility of a Jet Card,
with the company having sold over $104 million of its Jet Cards for the
first half of 2016.
Additionally, Sentient welcomed Peter Ockerbloom, Executive Vice
President, Sales and Revenue Management, to the team, whose experience
in leading roles at Penn Foster, Bain Capital, e-Dialog, and Boston
Globe Media will bring valuable expertise to the company as it continues
to expand strategically with the market.
“Peter Ockerbloom is an accomplished leader whose proven success in the
sales and business development arena will be a valuable asset to the
Sentient team,” said Collins. “Our appointment of Peter as Executive
Vice President, Sales and Revenue Management will allow us to continue
to distinguish Sentient as a provider of best-in-class private aviation
solutions amidst a growing market.”
Sentient also recently engaged award-winning communications agency CTP
to develop brand ID and a new tagline, “a more thoughtful way to fly,”
to capture the company’s level of service, as well as a brand campaign
that speaks to the discerning private aviation customer. The rebranding
further reflects Sentient’s continued growth and precedes the company’s
relocation to its new headquarters in the summer of 2017.
Sentient Jet offers its 25-Hour Jet Card in four jet-size options,
allowing clients to purchase flight time on Light, Mid, Super-Mid and
Heavy aircraft as well as in two age classes (Preferred and Select),
starting at just $124,825. Sentient Jet Cardholders receive a rare
combination of industry leading service at a tremendous value, complete
with a one-year lock on both hourly rates and fuel surcharges, with the
added bonus of 15% discounts on hourly pricing for qualifying travel.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises.
The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
