Ramco Systems has announced a new order win from Hevilift Group, an aviation charter service provider of fixed and rotary wing aircraft in the Asia-Pacific Region. Ramco says the win, announced during the HELI-EXPO 2013, being held at Las Vegas, further reinforces their leadership in the Heli-operator segment, where Ramco’s software has been maintaining over 1100+ helicopters, globally.
Under the agreement, Ramco will provide its web-based Series 5 M&E and MRO solution, including Maintenance & Engineering (M&E), Supply Chain Management (SCM), Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul (MRO), Reliability, Aviation Finance, and Work Force Administration, with integrated Multi-Country Payroll across numerous countries and legal entities of the Group.
“We have a diverse fleet of over 50 aircraft and wanted to consolidate our operations, which are spread across multiple geographies. Ramco’s solution was a good fit, both in terms of functionality and usability,” Colin Seymour of Hevilift Group, said. “Also, the rich experience of the team in serving multiple specialty operators in the rotor wing segment was a great plus. By moving to an integrated software platform, we look forward to improving the efficiency and productivity of our operations.”
Hevilift’s aircraft covers operations both onshore and offshore for verticals such as oil & gas, mining, mineral exploration, medical evacuation, and aerial construction among others. Though operations are spread across countries with low internet penetration, such as Papua New Guinea, Indonesia (Balikpapan) and others, Ramco says it has ensured availability of data at a central corporate location almost in real-time by harnessing satellite connectivity.
“We have been growing rapidly in the aviation business, and Hevilift is a great addition to our growing aviation customer base,” said Virender Aggarwal, CEO, Ramco Systems. “Ramco’s software runs in a large number of big helicopter operators, globally. The aviation software has been well received for its functionality and with its latest features of Mobility and Gen-Y user interface, it is sure to appeal to many more customers. We are looking forward to a great start with Hevilift as it also opens up entry into hitherto new markets such as Myanmar, and PNG.”
Ramco maintains customers’ whose rotor fleet span includes Augusta Westland AW 137 Series, Bell Series 206/212/407/412/UH-1, CASA 212-200 Series, Dash 8 DHC6-300 Series, EC 135, King Air E 900/200, Seasprite SH-2G, Sikorsky S-56/58/61/64/76, Super Puma AS Series etc., among others.
