Ramco, Eurocopter in global pact to provide cloud-based maintenance software

Eurocopter Group, the world's largest manufacturer of helicopters, today announced a global partnership with Ramco Systems, a Chennai-based aviation software provider on cloud, mobile and tablets.

Both companies will offer state-of-the-art helicopter maintenance software, which will ease the life of operators and maintenance centres.

The agreement, signed at the 2013 Paris Air Show, will allow Eurocopter and Ramco to offer additional mobility and functionality for the collection and treatment of MRO-related data, thereby providing highly effective and cost-efficient fleet management services that are affordable and user friendly for all operators – including those with smaller numbers of helicopters.

''Ramco's cloud-based maintenance software solution is an outstanding addition to our service offering,'' said Matthieu Louvot, vice president of Support and Services at Eurocopter. ''The partnership will bring us closer to our customers' maintenance operations, enabling us to offer them the best quality of service.''

According to Venketrama Raja, vice chairman and managing director at Ramco, said ''The strength and capability of our Aviation solution gets a global endorsement with Eurocopter, the number one civil and parapublic helicopter manufacturer, choosing Ramco for its functionality, cloud-based solution with mobility, new user interface and role-based WorkSpaces.''

With tens of thousands of parts in an aircraft, tracking and managing each stage of maintenance work would become unmanageable without a user friendly and comprehensive maintenance, engineering and repairs solution.

The Ramco-Eurocopter cloud based MRO software addresses the unique needs of smaller operators, MROs and CAMOs, which until now had to either run on disparate point solutions or operate manually using paper/ excel to track maintenance and manage safety and regulatory compliance.

Ramco Systems, part of the $1-billion Ramco Group, offers ERP, HCM, MRO, M&E, SCM, CRM, financials, service management, asset management, process control, project management and analytics to multiple verticals on the most appropriate cloud model provides next generation, end-to-end enterprise solutions that render complete transformation of the business in real time.

Ramco has over 150,000 users from over 1000 organisations across 35 countries. The company currently has 21 offices spread across India, the US, Canada, Europe, Middle East, South Africa and APAC.
