Horizon Business Concepts

CORRIDOR Aviation Software can tell you if you have excess inventory, where your cost centers are and what jobs are most profi table, according to founder and president, Jack Demeis.

“Several fundamental issues plague aviation maintenance products,” warns Pentagon

2000’s Baugher. “Many products are delivered as a toolkit and need extensive, complex and expensive configuration and programming in order to allow basic use of the product. [And] Many products are ‘light-weight’ and lack the depth of functionality and technical integrity required for enterprise class and commercial use.”

A Necessary Requirement

Despite these shortfalls, aviation maintenance software remains by far the most effective way for an MRO to manage, measure and improve the ways in which it does business. “You need to know how productive your company actually is and you can only do this easily and accurately collecting data electronically,” says Chris Reed, managing director of TRAX. “Armed with this data, you can see where your weak spots are and determine how to deal with them. You can also rationalize processes that are inefficient and costly. You can make a real difference to your bottom line.” Earlier this year, Southwest Airlines selected TRAX to provide its new ERP MRO solution. “We need a solution that makes our mechanic’s jobs easier, while at the same time enhances safety and culture,” says Brian Hirshman, Southwest’s VP M&E. “MROs need to stay competitive, which means they truly need to use an enterprise-wide system to handle all of their transactions and billings,” echoes Component Control’s Z. Bar-On. “Our software allows them to monitor their productivity on a daily basis, and to make sure everything they do is properly documented. In today’s tight margin business environment, this kind of detailed, insightful management is a must.”

The bottom line: aviation maintenance

software is as necessary to an MRO’s ongoing success as the tools they stock, the people they hire and the work they bring into their shops. Conversely, there is no way that an MRO can expect to remain competitive without entering the 21st century technologically, and this includes running the business with an electronically enhanced advantage. That’s what aviation maintenance software can deliver. That’s what makes it a necessity.
