AMOS to support the company restructuring process
Swiss-AS and Royal Air Maroc (RAM) recently signed agreements to implement AMOS at the Moroccan flag carrier. By launching an RFP process, followed by onsite software presentations in Casablanca, RAM was looking for an MRO software that is capable of supporting the company’s restructuring strategy. Increasing personnel productivity and process optimization in the E&M sector are the main objectives. The implementation of a state-of-the-art MRO software will ultimately result in reduced aircraft operating costs. Being a full-fledged and highly integrated software that is suitable to fulfil the activities of technical departments, AMOS was chosen as RAM’s favourite M&E software system.
Royal Air Maroc premiers as North African AMOS community member
The go-live should take place approximately ten to twelve months after kick-off. During that time 100 back-office users and more than 200 technical staff will be familiarized with AMOS and trained to use the MRO software in the context of the then newly-introduced maintenance processes. A considerable number of Swiss-AS employees are fluent in French and this will be a considerable advantage during the project as well as in the post-go-live phase.
“It is a pleasure to welcome RAM, our first customer from North Africa, into the AMOS community. With the delivery of the B787 fleet, RAM will benefit from AMOS’ advanced functions, which address the specific needs of new generation aircraft,“ says Ronald Schaeuffele, CEO of Swiss-AS.
