AMOS will enhance competitive advantage

Flybe Aviation Services has chosen the fully-integrated software package AMOS  to manage its entire aircraft maintenance, engineering and logistics’ requirements.

The AMOS implementation is expected to take between 12-15 months and will incorporate business process mapping, ‘gap’ analysis, data migration, key-user workshops and key and enduser staff training for 600 potential users. It will replace Flybe’s current and somewhat fragmented in-house built legacy system and leverage greater efficiencies and cost savings.

John Palmer, Managing Director Flybe Aviation Support, says: “For some years, there has been an aspiration for Flybe Aviation Services and Flybe UK to have an M&E system that can be used to leverage and exploit technological advances and in turn also satisfy our business and regulatory requirements. We are therefore extremely pleased that we have concluded this agreement with Swiss-AS to implement AMOS  in order to satisfy the diverse and individual demands of the 20 divisional units that comprise our engineering facility.”

The fully integrated Swiss-AS AMOS system is one of the market leaders in M&E software and, FAA and EASA compliant, is being continually developed to meet the needs of its customers.

Swiss-AS CEO, Ronald Schaeuffele, adds: “We are honoured to have been awarded this prestigious contract to implement AMOS for Flybe that will also play a key role in supporting its planned fleet expansion.”

Mr Palmer concludes: “We’ve established a close working relationship with Swiss-AS during the AMOS evaluation process and look forward to embedding this advanced system into our operations to enhance our competitive edge by providing value for money maintenance services to our expanding list of high profile global clients.
