HAECO Hong Kong Introduces Mobile Mechanic App

28 Nov 2017 – HAECO Hong Kong, a member of the HAECO Group, announced today that the company has introduced a mobile application – ULTRAMAIN® Mobile Mechanic™ – for use in its Light Maintenance operations at Hong Kong International Airport.

To improve operational efficiency in an environmental-friendly manner, HAECO Hong Kong collaborated with Ultramain Systems, Inc., an international asset management and logistics software service provider, to enhance ULTRAMAIN’s Mobile Mechanic to meet HAECO’s paperless needs. Cathay Pacific Airways (“Cathay Pacific”) provided support during the project and the airline has become the launch customer of HAECO’s implementation of Mobile Mechanic – making use of the system and application.

This application allows technical personnel to access electronic task cards, receive job assignments, create non-routine task cards as well as sign off task cards electronically through mobile devices. The airline customer can now have real-time monitoring of job status.

HAECO Hong Kong provides light maintenance services to Cathay Pacific’s Boeing 777-300 fleet at its hangar facilities. With HAECO Mobile Mechanic, engineers, technical personnel and relevant parties can plan ahead more effectively. This application further enhances accuracy in maintenance work and increases productivity.

The HAECO Hong Kong Light Maintenance team handles over 1,000 light maintenance checks (planned maintenance inputs) annually for Cathay Pacific. The implementation of the Mobile Mechanic will help save 640,000 sheets of paper per year. Both parties plan to extend the application to cover Cathay Pacific’s Airbus A330 fleet in the first half of 2018.

Clement Lam, Director & General Manager, HAECO Hong Kong, said: “We are delighted to introduce the Mobile Mechanic application to our long-standing customer Cathay Pacific. As a customer-oriented and socially responsible organisation, we are committed to improving our operational efficiency through innovation. We are confident that this application will help increase productivity and minimise the impact on the environment in which we operate.”

Mark McCausland, President of Ultramain Systems, said: “We welcome HAECO to our paperless MRO family. It is our belief that the productivity and environmental benefits that HAECO is able to achieve through the use of Mobile Mechanic has set a new standard for third party maintenance providers. It further illustrates that operators and MROs can benefit from a Simple Mobile Paperless strategy.”
