FOS Sync — Never Miss a Beat

Key to our development strategy is FOS Sync, which automatically keeps current FOS synchronized with the NextGen flight operations management system in real time, with no additional data entry on your part. Simply migrating your current FOS application to the Stellar Cloud will allow you to work seamlessly between the current and NextGen features, as well as experience new features as soon as they become available. Operators hosted on Stellar Cloud are able to use FOS Sync to take advantage of NextGen Quoting today.
