Aircraft maintenance software provider Rusada and mobile solutions specialist Conduce have agreed to a strategic partnership. The partnership will see the two companies join forces on projects requiring both a maintenance software solution and an eTechLog solution. Rusada and Conduce have previously worked together on a number of projects, including their current joint deployment at cargo operator Texel Air. The partnership agreed today, which included the signing of an “e-contract” on a mobile device, formalizes the company’s working relationship, and sets targets for future joint projects.
“A key aim of this partnership is to make the transition to paperless processes more accessible and affordable for aircraft operators around the globe,” said Richard Landsbury, sales director at Rusada. “The combination of our two systems allows users to conduct much of their operations without using a single sheet of paper.”
The paperless processes in question are achieved by connecting Rusada’s ENVISION solution to Conduce’s eTechlog8 through a Representational State Transfer (REST) application programming interface, which allows for the seamless transmission of data between the two, in real time.
A typical scenario would see ENVISION scheduling the flight and assigning it to an aircraft. This information would then be transmitted to eTechlog8, where the line maintenance team would perform pre-flight checks using a mobile device, before transferring responsibility of the aircraft to the pilot. The aircraft would then fly the sector, with the pilot completing the journey log and recording any defects before handing back to the line maintenance team. Journey logs would then be transmitted to ENVISION to be recorded against the aircraft and its components, along with any defects. Corrective maintenance could then be planned, executed, and signed-off using ENVISION and its apps.
“The Conduce mobile aviation solutions have been developed to allow for easy data transfer across multiple airline engineering and flight operations systems.” adds Paul Boyd, managing director at Conduce. “Strategic partnerships such as this enable airlines to select the best of breed applications across their business. The systems integration with Rusada’s ENVISION will provide customers with the real time operational and maintenance status of their fleets wherever their location.”
