AMOS trusted by 12 new customers in 2013
2013 has been a very successful year for Swiss-AS in terms of new business, company growth and substantial product innovations.
12 new customers have signed for AMOS in the past 12 months. Among them AviancaTaca Holding, Scandinavian Airlines, CommutAir, Aeroflot, Vanilla Air, LOTAMS, Lufthansa Cityline, Royal Air Maroc and UTAir.
Since April 2013 the newly opened AMOS office in Singapore is up and running and has already gained its first customers, while the well-established US office continued to win high-profile deals in the Americas region.
Due to the continuing success of AMOS, the Swiss-AS team has been growing and will further grow in all project and development related departments to cater for the needs of all our customers. By the end of the year 2013 Swiss-AS had almost 120 employees.
A big milestone in 2013 was the release of AMOS 10. Apart from surface changes like adding widget functions and introducing a cleaner structure of the menu and status bar, major new developments have been launched with AMOS 10. With the introduction of “Multi Entity” functions in AMOS and the new “Maintenance Program” we responded to the requirements of complex maintenance organisations. In addition, Swiss-AS strengthened the competitiveness of AMOS by extending rotable control dimensions and improving “Resource Management” functions and presented new features to cover the needs of new-generation aircraft operators.
Another highlight of the past year was Swiss-AS being awarded “Best IT Software Provider 2013” by Aircraft Technology Engineering and Maintenance (ATE&M).
The year 2014 will be characterised by two important anniversaries: AMOS, which was launched as an MRO software development project by Crossair in 1989, turns 25. The company Swiss-AS, established in 2004 when the AMOS business activities were transferred from the IT department of SWISS to the newly founded subsidiary of SWISS called “Swiss AviationSoftware”, celebrates its 10th birthday.
At the end of 2013, a research program was completed that investigated new system technologies and developed a prototype for the usage of AMOS on mobile devices. The main focus lies now on developing mobile, browser-based applications for a selected number of AMOS modules with the purpose of covering in a first phase, the complete line maintenance process.
An all-new AMOS brochure will be released in early 2014 while the homepage SWISS-AS.COM will be equipped with additional information on AMOS and Swiss-AS.
