Swiss AviationSoftware (Swiss-AS) is proud to announce that AMOS is now represented in Miami, Florida, USA. The start of business in the American market was scheduled for September 1st 2010. While being the market leader in Europe and having a substantial market share in other parts of the world, Swiss-AS now intends to intensify its presence in the US market. The potential of the US market is well-known to the MRO software industry. Many airlines in the US currently use outdated MRO software and will sooner or later screen the market for best-ofbreed, fully integrated MRO software solutions. Miami seems an excellent choice to Swiss-AS since the city is the link between South and North America and at the same time a gateway destination to the rest of the world.

Swiss-AS was looking for a partner and found in Lufthansa Systems Americas the ideal set-up for its strategic expansion plans. The American subsidiary of Lufthansa Systems has been based in the US for more than 15 years and has longstanding relationships and experience with airlines in North and South America. AMOS will be positioned within Lufthansa Systems Americas as a Business Unit which will be fully dedicated to AMOS-related activities. This approach enables the American AMOS team to start its business immediately while profiting from the infrastructure, sales distribution channels and high reputation of Lufthansa Systems Americas.

“It is with great excitement that we announce the American-Swiss cooperation and the immediate start of the AMOS Business Unit as part of Lufthansa Systems Americas. Making this advance will help us promote AMOS in the Americas and assert a more dominant role in this market” says Ronald Schaeuffele, CEO of Swiss-AS, while adding “we are pleased to realize our expansion plans with a reliable partner such as Lufthansa Systems Americas and look forward to a long lasting cooperation.”

Lufthansa Systems has many years of experience in implementing software solutions in the aviation business. By cooperating with Swiss-AS the aviation IT provider can complement its portfolio for the American market. The AMOS Business Unit will focus not only on sales but also on project management and consulting.

Lufthansa Systems is one of the leading IT service providers for the airline and aviation industries worldwide. As a systems integrator, the wholly-owned subsidiary of the Lufthansa Group employs about 3,000 people at several offices in 15 countries all over the world. The Miami based Lufthansa Systems Americas is dedicated to the North and South American market.

Lufthansa Systems’ portfolio covers the entire range of IT services, including consulting, development and implementation of industry solutions and operation in the company’s own data centers. Lufthansa Systems offers IT solutions for all airline business processes together with customized solutions for several other industries.
