Ramco Aviation embarks on its African Safari

Kenya Airways Goes live with Ramco’s solution for its Dreamliners

Nairobi/ Chennai, India – September 30, 2014 – Ramco Systems, the global Aviation software provider on Cloud, Mobile and Tablets today announced the successful go-live of Ramco’s Loadable Software Airplane Parts (LSAP) solution at Kenya Airways, the flag carrier of Kenya. Ramco has provided its Engineering Data Management System (EDMS), widely known as LSAP to maintain Kenya Airways’ latest fleet of B787 Dreamliner. Ramco’s partner, SmartMegh Africa also played a vital role in this engagement.

Kenya Airways needed an EDMS to manage its Airline Configuration for their new fleet of 787. The key aspects of Ramco’s EDMS solution help in establishing a baseline for all software and hardware under configuration and efficiently manage all changes to the baseline, as and when released by Boeing.

The go-live marks Ramco’s EDMS Solution seamlessly integrate with Kenya Airways’ Configuration Management. The integration with MyBoeingFleet (MBF) has helped Kenya Airways generate Aircraft Configuration reports in XML Formats from Ramco Application for comparison with Boeing SCX-Tool and maintain the updated Authorized Software configuration of all 787 Aircrafts.

Mr. Kevin Kinyanjui, Information Systems Director & CIO, Kenya Airways, said, “We are pleased to be associated with Ramco Systems. We were on the lookout for a solution that would help us meet the regulatory requirements as described by our Aircraft Network Security Program (ANSP) and also integrate with the Boeing SCX Tool. Having evaluated a range of solutions to cater to the unique needs of our latest fleet of B787 Dreamliners, we zeroed down on Ramco’s offerings; the reason being their LSAP solution demonstrated better visibility, excellent domain knowledge, solution capability, and experience to address our needs. The LSAP integration has automated our Engineering Change Management (ECM) process, resulting in a paperless process. We look forward to leverage the solution and reap benefits to the fullest.”

Commenting on the go-live, Mr. Virender Aggarwal, CEO, Ramco Systems, said, “We are very happy with our progress in the aviation vertical as we continually increase our client base. With Ramco Aviation solution going live at Kenya Airways, we have further reiterated our strength to quickly add latest features into our software, to help customers manage their IT needs, effectively. Ramco’s capability to address the complete requirements of the Dreamliner with LSAP Management Solution will now help global airlines, with new generation aircrafts, track their software efficiently. This coupled with our ability to provide Mobility and role-based, intuitive WorkSpaces continue to be our differentiator in the market.”
