Ottawa, Canada (August 28, 2007) – Mxi Technologies announced today that Air France Industries (AFI) has selected the Maintenix® maintenance management software for implementation in support of the A380. The Maintenix system will provide Engineering, Line, and Heavy Maintenance capabilities. This system allows the sharing of accurate, near real time data between organizations, leading to enhanced productivity and decision making.
The choice of the Maintenix system to support the A380 comes after the KLM Engineering & Maintenance (E&M) choice of the Maintenix system for the A330 and B737, and shows another step in a growing relationship between AFI KLM E&M, one of the world’s biggest multi-product aircraft maintenance groups, and Mxi Technologies.
“The technological advances of the A380 pose challenges for today’s MRO IT infrastructure and Air France Industries required a commercially off-the-shelf system that was capable of accommodating these next generation requirements,” said Alain Bassil President of Air France industries. He added: “One of the key strengths of the Maintenix software is its proven ability to manage complex configurations. We also saw the opportunity to realize productivity improvements through optimal utilization of resources, making Maintenix the best choice for our organization.”
“The merger of Air France and KLM has allowed MRO customers to benefit from a truly comprehensive service offering,” said Les Hine, President of Mxi Technologies. “Air France Industries saw the Maintenix product as a fundamental tool in supporting the new A380 fleet, optimizing processes across the airline group, and increasing customer satisfaction. We are thrilled to be moving forward in our relationship with this world class company.”
