Commsoft, a world leader in aviation engineering and maintenance systems, is delighted to announce that Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group, the UK’s largest independent aerospace and defence company, has extended its contract with Commsoft for the use of OASES.

Commsoft’s flagship product, OASES is a ‘best-of-breed’ MRO IT system which offers an industry-leading technical sophistication whilst being intuitively user-friendly. To allow for scalability, OASES is structured in a modular format and Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group has selected the Airworthiness, Planning and Core modules.

The 12-month, 5 concurrent users contract will allow Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group to explore new CAMO business opportunities, and exploratory discussions are soon to be held to review the potential uploading of data of two Cessna Citation corporate aircraft into OASES.

Nick Godwin, Commsoft Managing Director, commented:

“We’re delighted that Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group, with its extensive aviation capabilities, has decided to continue using OASES to develop its CAMO business. We’re looking forward to working closely with them to help ensure their continued success”.
