Decade old Ramco customer, U.S. Heli-Operator PHI, Inc. reaffirms its TRUST in Ramco

Louisiana, U.S. / Chennai, INDIA – November 01, 2018 – Enterprise cloud software specialist Ramco Systems today announced that it has extended its decade-long business relationship with U.S. heli-operator PHI, Inc. for a company-wide enterprise software upgrade.

PHI, Inc., a long-time commercial aviation customer of Ramco, will upgrade the company and its subsidiaries to the latest version of Ramco Aviation M&E MRO Suite 5.8 to manage its multi-entity maintenance and flight operations of aircraft. Following a recent acquisition, PHI’s fleet now numbers more than 250 aircraft in multiple models, and it plans to have around 3,000 users in the U.S., New Zealand and 12 other countries using Ramco Aviation software.

The latest version of Ramco’s Aviation software is a time tested and comprehensive solution for Maintenance, Engineering, Supply Chain Management, Safety, Compliance, Flight Operations with complete Finance and EFB (Electronic Flight Bag). It is fully optimized for smartphones and tablets, and comes bundled with innovative features such as dashboards, chatbots, email-based transactions (Mail IT) and additional functions for sales, finance and flight charters.  

PHI – which provides helicopters for the Oil & Gas, onshore mining and the air medical sectors, among others – had first partnered with Ramco, in 2003 in its search for a single solution to centralize its global operations and analyze data from across its entire organization. Over the years, the partnership ultimately led to better business decisions and faster aircraft turnaround.

Lance Bospflug, President & COO, PHI, Inc., said, “As our organization grows, upgrading to the latest version of Ramco Aviation Suite was a natural next step in our business relationship. We have worked with Ramco for over a decade, during which time they have provided us with product support that has added value to our operations and business. Their ability to understand and address the complexity of our business has been outstanding. We are confident that our business partnership will continue to allow PHI to manage our business efficiently using best in class software, systems and technology delivered across a global platform.”
