Connectivity a “must-have”: ATR trusts ADSoftware

Talking about the partnership, Patrick Massicot, Head of Airframe & MRO Services, praised ADSoftware’s customer management and quick response times, saying: “As our ATR Part 145 and Part M/CAMO teams work not only in our Francazal (Toulouse) maintenance base but also in very remote areas, connectivity and high availability of the MIS are a must-have. Listening skills, technical skills and agility to meet ATR specifications and demonstrate or implement new features were just some of the key reasons for ATR’s partnership with ADSoftware, deploying the full IT suite which is now ongoing”.

A complete technical partnership

ATR has chosen ADSoftware to manage its MRO and CAMO activities, via ADSoftware’s pack of industry-leading Maintenance Information Systems. ADSoftware’s complete suite of tools allows users to manage

  • flight time and logbooks
  • supply chain
  • access key documentation
  • maintenance team planning
  • statistics and accounting
  • security management
  • full data indexation and file conversion

In addition to MRO and CAMO management, ADSoftware will work alongside ATR to develop new processes and methods to integrate and manage key technical data, including migration to new aircraft and phase-in/phase-out processes. With these new features aircraft data integration will be quick and easy, allowing the operator to save time and money in the process.
