Amsterdam, The Netherlands; 4th March 2014 – AerData, the provider of software and services for the aviation industry announces the launch of GEARS, a new software tool, that is designed to standardize data collection for routine audits and inspections.


GEARS (Global Electronic Asset Review System), is a digital tool that can control the quality, consistency and efficiency of data collection by utilizing standard procedures and guidelines.  The assigned ‘inspector’ completes a series of pre-defined questions and at the end, based on the answers, multiple reports can be generated and shared.


Commenting on the announcement, Vincent van der Gulik, Director, Products and Services, AerData said; “GEARS was developed to address the problem of gathering data in a standardized way for routine audits and inspections.  Lessors can deploy their standard audit template in GEARS for technical reps to complete and be sure that the data they collect is the right data, collected in a standardized format.  For airlines, the principal is the same.  When an airline has Quality Reviews to carry out, they too may utilize GEARS to efficiently manage the data collection and distribution.”


Van der Gulik continued; “GEARS is designed to integrate across the AerData product platform, most notably CMS and STREAM.  This means that customers who use one or both of these products, realize the benefits of automated data transfer from GEARS to CMS as well as document linking from STREAM.  This will improve the quality of data entry and reduce the costs and risks normally associated with manual data entry.”


GEARS is offered as a stand-alone tool via AerData’s web browser-based Dashboard or integrated with CMS and STREAM if the customer is also subscribing to those AerData products.  In addition, AerData can also offer GEARS through AerData Technical Services (ADTS) if customers wish to outsource audits and inspection work.
