Ottawa, Canada (November 27, 2007) – Mxi Technologies announced today that the Maintenix® system has successfully gone live providing in-service data management of all three engine variants (-A1, -A5 and -D5) within the International Aero Engines (IAE) V2500 fleet. The Maintenix product is an intelligent, integrated software solution that will provide IAE with meaningful improvements to the labor productivity of their Field Service Representatives. The software was delivered on time, enabling IAE field service representatives to record engine reliability data, and was implemented within budget.
The workflow-based design of Maintenix will streamline the process of compiling engine data, ensuring continued data integrity. The addition of accurate near real-time, fleet-wide reporting and analysis of the V2500 fleet will allow the management team to not only view the current condition of every individual engine at any time, from any location in the world, but also assess the success of the program as a whole. These enhancements to productivity will significantly reduce the time spent by Field Service Representatives entering data and create added value through increased time spent with customers.
“IAE selected the Maintenix product based on its proven aftermarket success in managing the in-service portion of the life-cycle of aviation assets. Through this implementation, our expectations have been met”, said Greg Gernhardt, IAE Vice President of Operations and Customer Programs. “The end-user receptivity to the software has been positive. We attribute this to Mxi’s in-depth knowledge of airlines Maintenance and Engineering operations and the continuous collaboration between the Mxi and IAE teams throughout the project”.
“To not only be selected, but also so positively received by a leader within the OEM engine services aftermarket shows that the Maintenix product is an ideal choice of Maintenance & Engineering software for this market,” said Les Hine, President of Mxi. “We are looking forward to further expanding our presence in this market.”
