Ramco, June 03, 2021 - Houston, USA / Chennai, INDIA – Global aviation software provider Ramco Systems announced it will implement its Aviation M&E MRO Software V5.8 to digitally transform the maintenance and engineering operations of Bristow Group Inc., one of the world’s largest helicopter operators providing offshore transportation, search and rescue (SAR) and aircraft support services to government and civil organizations worldwide.
Ramco shares a decade-long relationship with Era Group (Era). Bristow’s merger with Era makes them the largest civilian offshore, SAR solution provider and the largest operator of helicopter models S-92, AW189, and AW139.
Ramco will deploy its aviation software to track inventory and manage maintenance, engineering and operations on a single integrated platform.
Compliant with global regulatory standards, the multi-country roll-out of Ramco Aviation Software, complying with multiple regulatory bodies, will provide cost savings while increasing efficiency and reducing potential for human error, helping Bristow achieve their goal of paperless engineering and operations.
Bristow’s staff will also be able to interact with the solution on Ramco’s mobile application, Ramco AnywhereApps and operational Electronic Flight Bag features, which will enable them to manage their operations and receive alerts on the go, providing greater flexibility and quicker response time. Bristow will also be able to create a collaborative network of suppliers with real-time visibility and seamless performance tracking, thereby helping them improve their power by the hour (PBH) and consignment tracking abilities.
Smart inventory & maintenance management
The implementation of Ramco Aviation Software will enable Bristow to achieve smart inventory, maintenance management and streamline organization-wide warranty tracking processes. The seamless integration of the solution with Bristow’s financial application will help the company achieve on-time billing and financial closure.
