EmpowerMX, the leading cloud-based MRO platform for the aviation industry today announced the launch of Touchfree Electronic Task Card (ETC), a contact-less solution for companies that are planning to resume post-pandemic operations.
“In the new reality, paper-based operations will subject multiple users to physical contact with a paper trail, leading to potential increased spread of COVID-19” said Dinakara Nagalla, CEO of EmpowerMX. “The EmpowerMX Touchfree ETC is an elegant, mobile-ready solution that can works seamlessly with any existing MRO solution to enable operators on the floor to digitally complete tasks without coming into contact with paper.”
As a fully integrated digital platform, Touchfree ETC offers engineers and field operators the ability to collaborate with remote support using built-in video technology in mobile devices. It can also record these support calls and permanently save them as part of the aircraft’s records. With many MROs launching drone inspections, Touchfree ETC delivers the ability to stream the drone footage directly into the mobile device and onto the task card, as well as photos taken with hand -held devices. This will allow the MRO organization to maintain a single point of storage for all aircraft maintenance activities.
EmpowerMX Touchfree ETC is an industry-first electronic task card solution that helps MRO organizations migrate to digital operations in a very short time. Legacy PDF and images that are currently the norm are rapidly digitized with the Touchfree ETC conversion engine, which then makes all data available for any hand held digital device.
Powered by machine learning and artificial intelligence, Touchfree ETC can auto recognize the correct signatories, where they should sign, and if they are qualified to sign, irrespective of the document format. It can seamlessly deliver any technical document that engineers and field service personnel use today—including forms—through mobile devices and can be executed electronically, enabling a fully digital operation.
“Having been in the airline industry for decades, I was excited by the EmpowerMX vision to transform a paper-based operation to a fully digital process, irrespective of the source documents,” said Jim Sturgis, COO at EmpowerMX. “Our product design focus has been to help MRO shops start off using ETC with current projects on the floor, even as they work to bring their legacy paper-based data to the digital realm. It is time for the industry to embrace this path towards a complete digital operation that helps minimize the impact of current pandemic crisis as well as saving very significant costs through improved operational efficiencies and increasing regulatory compliance.”
EmpowerMX Touchfree ETC will meet all regulatory mandates for Clean Operations in the MRO industry, reduce the risk of contact-based virus spread, and help shops provision for workspace employee safety in a frictionless manner.
