Air Methods Corporation (Nasdaq: AIRM), the global leader in air medical transport, recently announced it upgraded to Ramco Aviation Suite V5.7 to streamline maintenance, engineering and supply chain functions across its base locations and headquarters in Englewood, Colorado.
“With Ramco, we are able to continue to be a lean organization, yet have the visibility and control that is important to manage our growing business,” said Teri Short, Vice President of Engineering at Air Methods. “I am happy to note that the internal team managed the upgrade to the latest version with minimal support from the Ramco team. In short, Ramco has empowered us to manage our growing business while maintaining our streamlined organizational structure.”
For nearly a decade, Air Methods has worked with Ramco to run its maintenance application software to manage its fleet maintenance operations.
Mr. Virender Aggarwal, Chief Executive Officer at Ramco Systems, said, “Our nine year old relation with Air Methods has touched a new milestone with this go-live. While the upgrade underscores our commitment to offer latest features that help clients’ meet the regulatory and compliance needs; we have focused our efforts to offer features which help improve efficiency and productivity from shop floor to the hangar. The major highlight of this project is the user-friendliness of the solution, which helped Air Methods carry out the project, in-house without any hassle. We are delighted to extend our association with Air Methods and look forward to developing newer features that add greater value.”
The Ramco Aviation Suite V5.7 includes modules for real-time tracking of aircraft movements to improve compliance to regulatory needs; centralized inventory control, allowing mechanics to trace part availability based on closest location to source; warranty tracking of all parts, thereby substantially reducing repair expenses.
With Emirates, Malaysia Airlines, Petroleum Helicopters Inc., Era Group, Cobham Aviation Services, Columbia Helicopters, Able Engineering & Aerospace, and seventy others onboard, Ramco is the solution of choice for several large airlines and five of the top heli-operators and multiple MROs in the world. Designed to be accessible on cloud, mobile and tablets, Ramco Aviation Software continues to add technological innovations with wearable devices offering hands-free computing, and the ‘one user once screen’ concept called HUB, amongst others that help significantly reduce transaction time both during AOG conditions and critical aircraft turnarounds.
