New Caledonia’s First Domestic Airline, Air Calédonie Goes Live with Ramco Aviation Suite
Replaces 21-year-old legacy system to embark on a digital transformation journey with Ramco
Nouméa, NEW CALEDONIA / Chennai, INDIA – July 30, 2020 – Global aviation software provider Ramco Systems announced that it has gone live at Société Calédonienne de Transports Aériens (Air Calédonie), the first domestic airline of New Caledonia, with its Aviation M&E MRO Suite V5.8, a modern aviation ERP which will enable automation of maintenance, logistics, planning, engineering and shop floor activities and improve visibility of aircraft maintenance planning activity.
With modules for Engineering & CAMO, Maintenance, Supply Chain Management, Compliance, Quality & Reliability Management, Employee certification management, MRO execution, Book Keeping and Accounts Payables, Ramco Aviation Suite V5.8 enables Air Calédonie to reduce manual effort and costs for aircraft maintenance planning activities, and conduct efficient analysis of aircraft utilization. The solution is integrated with the finance system of Air Calédonie, allowing it to systemize inventory tracking and improve inventory turnover and cost tracking.
The project marks Ramco’s first implementation in New Calédonie. In spite of severe business, operational, manpower and resource disruptions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the project implementation methodology was recalibrated and go-live was achieved, thereby building a path for paperless operations.
Eric Broutte, Technical Director, Air Calédonie, said, “We are happy to announce the successful go-live of Ramco Aviation Suite at Air Calédonie. The journey so far has been both eventful & challenging. On one hand, we faced the arduous hurdle of organization wide, cultural & process change management, by migrating from a 21+ years old legacy system to a state-of-the-art fully integrated system. And on the other hand, we faced the unprecedented business, operations, and resource disruptions due to the COVID pandemic; that hit us hard during the most critical, rollout phase, of the project. However, both Air Calédonie & Ramco teams, tirelessly worked together as one, to successfully push through the tough times and are now more effectively adapting to the best practices using our new system. Our future vision is to complement our core system with Ramco’s mobility solutions, in our shop floors, warehouses and cockpits!”
Virender Aggarwal, CEO, Ramco Systems, said, “The prevailing pandemic situation has given us a chance to design an aviation industry fit for the future. It is during these tough times that operators like Air Calédonie are leveraging the latest technological stacks to transform their businesses. We are confident that Ramco’s rich functionalities and deep domain expertise, bundled with next-gen technology will help Air Calédonie’s automate operations, enabling efficient aircraft utilization.”
