AviIT is delighted to announce that Monarch Aircraft Engineering Limited has completed swift and smooth transition to an eMan managed service for the delivery of technical publications and manuals to engineering teams across its sites.

eMan is an AviIT product created to ease the library management challenges associated with the efficient control and distribution of publications and applications required for aircraft service and maintenance activities.

Keith Earnden, Engineering Director of Monarch Aircraft Engineering Limited (MAEL) welcomes the move. “eMan has been successfully supporting MAEL for a number of years so it was a very simple decision when it came to looking at our future systems for library management. However, we were aware that AviIT now offers the solution on the basis of a managed service which has the attraction of placing the Service responsibility with the vendor.” The growth of MAEL’s own business had a role to play as Keith explains. “The eMan managed service proposition is even stronger in a multi-site environment so it made sense to implement a new architecture as we expanded into our new 110,000 sq. ft state-of-the-art maintenance facility at Birmingham Airport in the UK.”

David Brown, Chief Executive Officer of AviIT is delighted with this development. “It’s fantastic that we have been able to deepen our relationship with Monarch in his way. Monarch has always been very supportive of our eMan developments, which are designed to make the solution fit the current and future maintenance and repair demands. Our managed service proposition is not entirely new as it’s already been proven on an industrial scale supporting a number of airlines and MROs in Europe and North America on a managed service basis.”
