AirVault has announced a higher level of systems integration with Swiss-AviationSoftware’s AMOS MRO software. The AirVault M&E (Maintenance & Engineering) Integration provides comprehensive bi-directional integration with M&E Systems, such as Swiss-AS AMOS, to automate document data capture activities, allow comprehensive reconciliation, and allow publication of links into the AMOS for direct access to AirVault-stored records from within the AMOS application. AirVault’s AMOS integration securely maintains a synchronised cache of key AMOS data related to work packages, work orders, parts orders, and parts transactions to support document index augmentation, and reconciliation of records scanned/received with records expected. AirVault includes a rules-based BPM workflow capability to manage discrepancy resolution processes to audit records for completeness and accuracy, as well as to manage the entire discrepant record remediation process within the airline and with third party MROs.


AirVault’s cloud-based service technology and M&E Integration for AMOS are now in joint production at a number of airlines including Finnair, SAS and flydubai.

Ramco Systems has announced the launch of its ‘Anywhere’ apps on mobile devices, which will enable requisition managers and mechanics to work on-the-go. The native mobile applications offer smart context-aware functions such as electronic signoffs, real-time monitoring and part tracking, easy deployment of online manuals and cloud-based data retrieval. All of these solutions also integrate the geo-fencing security feature, which prevents unauthorised access beyond the premises of a work centre. Integrated with a barcode scanner, smart search and voice input, executing critical transactions from a hangar or warehouse will now be possible on the move. 


The Anywhere apps available are:

  • Warehouse Anywhere – providing warehouse managers and clerks with a platform for comprehensive stock order management, with separate functions for enquiries, issues, returns and transfers. The software searches for parts based on warehouse location and offers real-time context sensitive map views of stock positions
  • Mechanic Anywhere – helping mechanics to streamline daily operations by introducing new data entry procedures for task cards and post-flight logging. This app also enables mechanics to request and track parts and resources, as well as log discrepancies and view resolution histories
  • Route Anywhere – helps logistics personnel to service requests to pick parts from the warehouse or work centre and deliver it to another warehouse or work centre right from a mobile device. They will now be able to monitor and track the real time location of the part between warehouses and work centres at any given point
  • Approve Anywhere – eradicates waiting time for approvals, rejections, purchase authorisations, invoice acceptance or modifications that typically put on hold the otherwise seamless internal workflow of maintaining an aircraft within an organisation. Notifications of the respective actions pending are pushed through the app to the palm of the user to take necessary actions on the go, eliminating the need to use a work station
  • Customer Anywhere – designed for MRO organisations, helps users sync better with their customers. Besides offering their customers the ability to track their maintenance at a work order or an individual task level, the app allows MROs to transparently speed up customer authorisations on maintenance quotes, additional scopes, new discrepancies and even pending invoices for balance payments via in-app notifications.


Ramco will be rolling out the Mobile Solutions for a select set of customers that have signed up for the release. The solutions will be available on both iOS and Android platforms.


Seabury MRO Solutions, formerly known as Volartec, has been selected by Nauru Airlines to provide its Alkym Management and Control System for Aircraft Maintenance to help with the process of bringing all airworthiness control tasks in-house. The Seabury MRO Solutions project team will be on site on two phases to ensure Nauru Airlines gets the maximum benefit from Alkym in a short timescale. Phase 1 will be complete before the end of 2015, with the ‘go live’ date planned during that visit.


Swiss-AviationSoftware has expanded its partnership arrangements for its AMOS MRO software. Amsterdam-based EXSYN has become a partner after providing services for AMOS implementation projects for two years. The company provides data migration, systems integration, reporting and business intelligence solutions. Merit Globe of Norway is another new partner, providing subject matter experts with practical aviation and AMOS knowledge to complement the customer’s core project team. The customer will, for example, be able to fully transfer the data migration activities to Merit Consulting. After going live, Merit Consulting offers an AMOS 1st level support service, add-on products, reports and integration with other systems, as well as system operations. Swiss-AS will continue to lead all AMOS implementation projects and focus on project governance, knowledge transfer, operational services and business consulting.


Meanwhile, CrossConsense, one of the first partners, has recently enlarged its core business activities, which were focused around data migration, BIManagement, AMOS Support and Hosting. With CROSSMOS they now offer an electronic technical logbook interfaced with AMOS. Swiss-AS will continue to lead all AMOS implementation projects and focus on project governance, knowledge transfer, operational services and business consulting.
