The domestic airline of New Caledonia, Société Calédonienne de Transports Aériens (Air Calédonie) has gone live with Ramco Systems Aviation (Ramco) M&E MRO Suite V5.8, a modern aviation ERP which will enable automation of maintenance, logistics, planning, engineering and shop floor activities and improve visibility of aircraft maintenance planning activity. Ramco’s M&E MRO Suite V5.8 replaces a 21 year old system with the airline.
Eric Broutte, Technical Director, Air Calédonie, said, “We are happy to announce the successful go-live of Ramco Aviation Suite at Air Calédonie. The journey so far has been both eventful & challenging. On one hand, we faced the arduous hurdle of organization wide, cultural & process change management, by migrating from a 21+ years old legacy system to a state-of-the-art fully integrated system. And on the other hand, we faced the unprecedented business, operations, and resource disruptions due to the COVID pandemic; that hit us hard during the most critical, rollout phase, of the project. However, both Air Calédonie & Ramco teams, tirelessly worked together as one, to successfully push through the tough times and are now more effectively adapting to the best practices using our new system. Our future vision is to complement our core system with Ramco’s mobility solutions, in our shop floors, warehouses and cockpits!”
The project marks Ramco’s first implementation in New Calédonie.
“The prevailing pandemic situation has given us a chance to design an aviation industry fit for the future. It is during these tough times that operators like Air Calédonie are leveraging the latest technological stacks to transform their businesses. We are confident that Ramco’s rich functionalities and deep domain expertise, bundled with next-gen technology will help Air Calédonie’s automate operations, enabling efficient aircraft utilization,” said Virender Aggarwal, CEO, Ramco Systems.
With modules for Engineering & CAMO, Maintenance, Supply Chain Management, Compliance, Quality & Reliability Management, Employee certification management, MRO execution, Book Keeping and Accounts Payables, Ramco Aviation Suite V5.8 enables Air Calédonie to reduce manual effort and costs for aircraft maintenance planning activities, and conduct efficient analysis of aircraft utilization. The solution is integrated with the finance system of Air Calédonie, allowing it to systemize inventory tracking and improve inventory turnover and cost tracking.
