BAE Systems and Mxi Technologies Host Inaugural Maintenix Defense User Group in the United Kingdom

Community-driven event provides platform for product knowledge transfer and collaboration on best practices in the use of the Maintenix software in defense environments

Ottawa, Canada (December 4th, 2014)
 – At the beginning of November, Mxi® Technologies and BAE Systems held the inaugural Maintenix Defense User Group (DUG). Hosted in the United Kingdom by BAE Systems, the three-day, user-driven event brought together members of Mxi’s defense community to share best practices around the use of the Maintenix software as well as provide a platform for knowledge transfer around the product.

The event, attended by BAE Systems, Harris Canada, FMV, the Swedish Air Force, CGI, Saab, Tsunami Tsolutions, and the Canadian Department of National Defense, allowed Mxi’s defense users to discuss their use of the Maintenix software to address real-world challenges in local and global sustainment as well as work in partnership to identify product areas that will provide ongoing business benefit and a continued competitive advantage.

In addition to delegate presentations, case studies, and discussions, BAE Systems arranged for a site visit of their Warton facilities which included a tour of the Typhoon Final Assembly and a Simulator Experience. An exclusive networking dinner allowed the group to hear from Nat Makepeace, a former Royal Air Force pilot and current BAE Systems test pilot who has achieved the rare feat of accumulating 5000 hours in the air flying military jets.

“Mxi places a high level of importance on fostering community among our customer base and events such as the DUG allow us to maintain an active and collaborative dialogue with our individual user groups,” says Dave Curley, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Mxi Technologies. “The Maintenix product is unique in that it is informed by the experiences and best practices of both defense and commercial aviation organizations and it is events such as this that provide us with the opportunity to hear from our distinct communities and reaffirm our commitment to serving all aspects of the market.”
