Astra Airlines, an emerging passenger airline operating from Greece went live with Ramco Aviation on Cloud .The cloud implementation was carried out remotely using Lean model that ensured ‘On time, within budget’ delivery. 

From project kick-off to go-live, the implementation was handled predominantly from off-shore through conferencing facility, without compromising on efficiency. With virtual blueprinting, pre-built business process documents, pre-loaded Industry standard codes, the lean model of implementation further ensured reduction in deployment cost by 40%. Astra has been able to reap the benefits of a functionally rich Maintenance & Engineering (M&E) Solution with industry best practices and standards in record time, within budgets.

Commenting on the Go-Live, Mr. Kostas Drizis – CAMO Manager, Astra Airlines, said “Within a short timeframe and limited resources from our end, we have transitioned to a modern and sophisticated Maintenance & Engineering IT system provided by Ramco. This has been possible because of the strong domain knowledge, professional approach and lean methodology adopted by Ramco. The Ramco team exhibited excellent domain knowledge and systematic approach which ensured every member at Astra understands and appreciates the interdependencies within units and contribute towards an efficient and coherent value-adding system.”

Mr. Virender Aggarwal, CEO, Ramco Systems, said “This is a proud moment for all of us as we have created yet another revolution in Aviation industry by adopting lean method of implementation to go live in record time of 45 days at Astra Airlines. Having demonstrated our strength both in functionality and usability, this implementation reiterates the strength in our process and approach. This landmark implementation will set a trend for many other airlines which have not embarked on modernization of their IT systems because of the cost and time involved to look at new-age cloud based Aviation solution.”

Astra Airlines has gone live on Ramco Aviation’s complete suite that covers Engineering, Line Maintenance, Maintenance Planning, Materials Management, Procurement Management, Vendor Invoicing, and Management Accounting.
