- Challenge Group to implement AMOS Airline Edition and AMOSmobile/EXEC
- Phased implementation to unite 3 AOCs and the line maintenance business unit in one environment
- Swiss-AS to provide its flexible and scalable Cloud Hosting solution
As a result of a comprehensive, highly professional evaluation process, the international air cargo consortium Challenge Group selected AMOS for Challenge Airlines BE, Challenge Airlines IL, Challenge Airlines MT and Challenge Technic.
The airline group’s decision to adopt AMOS is further proof of Swiss-AS’s position as an ideal technology partner that can assist the Challenge Group with its digital transformation efforts.
AMOSmobile/EXEC and cloud hosting bringing optimal value
The AMOS Airline Edition will enable the airlines to streamline operations, increase efficiency, and reduce overall maintenance costs by improving and digitizing internal aircraft maintenance procedures. As part of the paperless maintenance process, the use of AMOSmobile/EXEC, a touch-optimised add-on to AMOS, will enable the paperless execution of all line and base maintenance activities.
To complete the service package, Challenge Group has chosen Swiss-AS Cloud Hosting, which includes the proven AMOS Operation Services. With the use of secured VPN connections, their AMOS environment will be easily accessible from all their international operational bases. The hosting services are an effective method of eliminating the need for the group to maintain a technical infrastructure on site and enabling it to operate in compliance with the latest security and IT standards.
AMOS to support group harmonisation
In order to address the complex implementation project that has already begun, AMOS will be implemented in phases, due to the amount of AOCs that will be migrating from different legacy systems to AMOS. Challenge Group is aiming to unify all its different entities on a single AMOS environment which will enable the different entities to maximize the synergies and ensure a complete harmonisation of all the processes and data between them. The first phase of the project will focus on the Part 145 organisation, and the second phase will include the different CAMO (Continuing Airworthiness Management Organisation) organisations going live one by one.
