April 11, 2011—Miami—Southwest Airlines and TRAX USA Corp announced that the carrier has selected TRAX to provide its new ERP MRO solution.

“We need a solution that makes our Mechanics’ jobs easier, while at the same time enhances Safety and Culture,” said Brian Hirshman, Southwest’s VP M&E.

The project will be implemented over a two year period and will allow Southwest to benefit from having information about their aircraft, inventory, and maintenance activities integrated into a single system, streamlining aircraft maintenance and inventory planning processes. In addition, by  delivering an ERP MRO solution, SWA will realize a substantial yearly cost savings by retiring many existing applications.

“We’re excited about our new strategic relationship with Trax, and look forward to a very successful project,” said Jan Marshall, Chief Information Officer for Southwest Airlines.
