Shannon Ireland. April, 2012 // Africa Charter Airline and its sister AMO organisation Jet Centre have selected Alkym Management and Control System for Aircraft Maintenance as its preferred software system. This brings the Volartec customer list in Africa to five in a very short space of time.

ACA had gone to the market in a number of different ways to ensure they got the best value proposition for their organisation.  Jonathon Mark, CEO at African Airline Charter explained “We used a number of methods to explore what products were available and the costs involved. This included an external consultant as well our own internal project team. Both worked independently and we planned to examine in greater detail the benefits of both systems they returned to us. When both reports hit my desk the conclusion was the same – Alkym offered the best functionality and did so at a price range that was within our budget.”

ACA and Jet Centre will utilise 14 of the 15 modules / tools that Alkym has to offer and begin with a 10 concurrent user licence to look after its growing fleet. along with

John Barry, VP Business Development with Volartec was delighted to confirm “the growth in our customer list is simply a reflection of offering the customer what they want. Alkym is a very modern system that is tried and tested. It has all the functionality that an airline or MRO require. It integrates all this functionality in an easy to use interface. However we can still deliver this product in a timely fashion and at affordable price. I have said many times in the past 2 years I am pushing at open doors when I have such an offering to present.”

The remote set up of the ACA servers is already complete and our on-site implementation and training project is currently underway in Johannesburg. ACA will have Alkym live within 4 weeks from the project start date with all of the aircraft loaded and under control of the system.
