ANOTHER AMOS CUSTOMER FROM THE LUFTHANSA GROUP
Swiss AviationSoftware (Swiss-AS) and the bmi group have recently signed an agreement for the implementation of AMOS at British Midland International, bmi regional and bmibaby. Swiss-AS will provide the entire range of its maintenance management solution from Material Management to Engineering and Production.
“The decision to implement AMOS into the entire bmi group furthermore strengthens our footprint in the UK. We take pride in this high-profile deal and are happy to welcome another member of the Lufthansa Group into the AMOS customer circle,” states Ronald Schaeuffele, CEO of Swiss AviationSoftware.
COST-CUTTING POTENTIAL DUE TO FULLY INTEGRATED SOFTWARE
After a classic selection process in spring 2010 and a site visit to an existing AMOS reference customer, AMOS was shortlisted by bmi. Later, bmi and Swiss-AS arranged several web demonstrations dedicated to specific topics of interest. This approach turned out to be ideal, since different user groups were given the chance to address their needs and requirements to Swiss-AS and to familiarise themselves with AMOS, prior to the final decision being made by bmi. Swiss-AS and bmi are confident that the high user acceptance will positively contribute to the project’s success.
The AMOS Go-Live is planned to take place after 12-14 months of project work containing key and end user training, workshops, data transfer support, technical/consultant onsite support regarding Go-Live etc. A key challenge will be the modelling and streamlining of business processes within all three airlines.
By replacing the current non-integrated and fragmented IT landscape in the maintenance division, the UK based bmi group will substantially benefit from AMOS’ full integration and its very advanced interfacing capabilities. This will result in bmi having access to relevant information at the click of a mouse and will provide a significant reduction ofoperating costs. The implementation of AMOS will also improve the aircraft availability and optimise the allocation of bmi’s capacities and resources.
