Corridor Aviation Service Software (www.corridor.aero) Corridor Aviation Service Software covers a full range of MRO business functions. These include everything from quoting and estimating through procurement, inventory tracking, and work order/shop floor execution; to compliance and final invoicing. Among its special features are real-time visibility of integrated inventory part statuses, displaying procurement status in the work order, and a customer quoting system that transitions into work orders. “Corridor provides each MRO real-time visibility and management of what’s actually happening on the floor,” says company Founder/President Jack Demeis. “It improves inter- departmental communication and provides a seamless flow of information throughout the operation. By eliminating errors and redundancy, Corridor increases productivity and profitability.” To help MROs make the move from manual to automated business management, the company provides a “proven, formal and structured implementation process that provides predictable and repeatable results,” Demeis tells Aviation Maintenance. This process covers each aspect of implementation from process consultation and training, through data conversion and installation to Go-Live. In addition, “Each MRO is assigned a certified Corridor Implementation Coordinator as a single point of contact to understand each operation’s unique challenges, create a specific detailed project plan, and manage and guide the implementation,” he says.


“ This reduces the introduction of errors in recording the use or movement of parts and data entry and increases the speed to capture these transactions....”


its modular design, OASES “is much simpler to use and offers extensive configurability, despite providing full regulatory controls and compliance features with extensive security controls and audit/transaction logging facilities.”


Commsoft (www.commsoft.aero) Commsoft is known for its OASES MRO software. Short for Open Architecture Strategic Engineering System, OASES is built upon a modular system. It has discreet modules that manage Core, Materials, Commercial, Production, Airworthiness, Planning and Line Maintenance function. “The OASES Core module provides all elements required for the operation and support of the OASES system; including extensive security controls, all required operating systems, and the industry-leading Oracle database,” explains Nick Godwin, Commsoft managing director. Its features cover security management facilities for functions, users, groups and policies; audit logging facilities for major transactions; and scheduling tools for auto-report generation.


“Most MROs need flexibility in commercial modeling, tracking


and margin management together with close management and monitoring of tasks, including NRCs (non-routine cards) allied to forecasting and repair monitoring tools,” Godwin notes. Due to

Decision Software Systems (www.decisionsw.com) Like Commsoft, Decision Software Systems’ AvPro Software is built upon modules. Collectively, these modules are “designed to provide easy-to-use functionality for activities such as Inventory Control, Work Order Management, and Accounting,”says Gerry Merar, president, Decision Software Systems. As well, “AvPro Software modules are built around a Microsoft database application and allow users to ‘streamline’ these operations and have full transaction ‘traceability’ in all reporting.” AvPro Software uses barcode technology and labeled inventory


to record and track parts. “This reduces the introduction of errors in recording the use or movement of parts and data entry and increases the speed to capture these transactions,” Merar says. “By labeling the inventory as it is received, it also allows users to maintain a perpetual inventory count.” In addition, bar codes eliminate handwritten and key-in errors; and makes it easier to trace parts when so required by the FAA. AvPro displays each complete customer work order and account history on one screen, improving customer service while reducing mistakes. This allows sales agents to check on a customer’s credit status before agreeing to new contracts. “Being able to easily identify un-invoiced work orders and customers on credit hold before starting new jobs means a better bottom line and less overall loss,” Merar tells Aviation Maintenance. “Robust management reports also identify gross profit trends on individual work orders, employees, by aircraft, and overall business operation.”
