Chennai: Global enterprise cloud software specialist Ramco Systems has announced that it has teamed up with Airbus Helicopters SAS to develop an MIS Data Pack Connector – a product feature that automates Airbus’ fleet management data, with Airbus systems.
Ramco, one of the only four vendors shortlisted for the initiative, will build a Management Information System (MIS) data pack connector for Airbus Helicopters, which will be bundled with Ramco’s own Aviation Software for fleet maintenance and engineering (M&E).
With the MIS connector, Ramco clients who use or plan to buy Airbus Helicopters can import each aircraft’s specific configuration data and maintenance programs to their Ramco enterprise system in a matter of days, compared to more than a month required by traditional ERP systems.
By automatically importing the latest available data packs directly from Airbus Helicopters, the data pack connector removes manual error and eliminates the need to collect data from disparate sources when inducting new aircraft, thereby expediting the aircraft induction process by ~90%.
“Through these agreements, we’re paving a two-way digital street between Airbus Helicopters and the companies that manage maintenance data for helicopter operators, facilitating the automatic sharing of data and avoiding human-error-prone and time-consuming manual transfers,” said Matthieu Louvot, Executive Vice President of Customer Support & Services for Airbus Helicopters. “This capability takes us one step closer to creating a complete digital ecosystem, while simultaneously helping our customers along their own digitalisation journeys.”
By partnering with Airbus to create these digital pathways, Ramco Systems will get easier and faster access to Airbus’ rotorcraft data and technical documentation — especially when a new aircraft is put into operation – which feeds the maintenance information systems and informs a customer’s maintenance planning.
Commenting on the association, Virender Aggarwal, CEO, Ramco Systems, said, “We are pleased to work with Airbus Helicopters to develop the MIS data pack connector, which will be a valuable addition to Ramco’s global aviation enterprise offerings. Our clients will soon be able to enjoy increased visibility of their Airbus assets, as well as productivity gains and improved airworthiness. We are confident that this exciting venture will benefit new and existing customers of both Ramco Systems and Airbus Helicopters.”
