Ottawa, Canada and MRO Americas Phoenix, United States (April 8, 2014) – Mxi® Technologies, the leader in aviation maintenance management software, announced today that Flightstar Aircraft Services (Flightstar), a leading US-based MRO services provider, has selected the newly launched Maintenix® MRO Edition as its software platform of choice for managing the visit planning and resourcing functions at its 360,000 square foot Florida facility.
“As one of the fast growing MRO service providers in North America, we have never lost sight of what sets us apart in the market; unrivaled maintenance expertise and unparalleled customer service” says Tucker Morrison, Chief Operating Officer, Flightstar. “The in-visit visibility afforded by the Maintenix MRO Edition software, coupled with sophisticated process automation, provides us with even greater control over our committed deliverables ensuring that we continue to exceed customer expectations.”
In identifying the right solution to support their growing operations, Flightstar required a system that could easily scale with their business while significantly reducing the time spent on non-core activities. With functions encompassing resource, slot, and production planning, Maintenix MRO Edition extends the accessibility of visit information to all stakeholders — including customers, assigned maintenance personnel, and management — and supports greater visibility into visit progress to enhance internal and external communications.
Flightstar counts a number of national and international industry leaders among its blue-chip client list, including Delta, FedEx, and Southwest Airlines with whom they have worked to build long-term relationships founded on safety, reliability and continuous improvement.
“Mxi has created a differentiated product that supports MRO service providers in maintaining a customer-centric focus and Flightstar is the perfect complement to this vision,” says Dave Seibel, Chairman and CEO, Mxi Technologies. “With maintenance outsourcing shifting to place a higher value on quality and consistency, the business benefits afforded by the Maintenix MRO Edition is enabling our customers to more confidently and profitably compete on a local and global scale.”
Flightstar is a leading provider of heavy maintenance and repair services to the commercial aviation industry. Since the company’s founding in 2000, it has consistently delivered on a core promise of customer focused value and strives to be the global supplier of choice for outsourced heavy maintenance and Passenger-to-Freighter conversions.
Flightstar is headquartered at Cecil Airport (VQQ) in Jacksonville, FL. The company is capable of providing service to over 15 lines of heavy maintenance from three adjacent hangars, and will open its newly constructed fourth hangar in late-2014. For more information, visit www.flightstarjax.com.
