ACIA contracted AD SOFTWARE to implement and support the modules of its AIRPACK software suite. AD SOFTWARE ability to provide an aviation dedicated solution adapted to the specificities of ACIA’s business was key in the decision process. For several months AD SOFTWARE and ACIA’s teams met to define the best way forward, finalizing the partnership late 2019.
ACIA Technics and Leasing was registered in early 2017 to assist with technical management services and oversight. It oversees and manages the heavy maintenance checks for group owner aircraft as well as technical and CAMO oversight at Aircraft acquisitions, disposals and leasing including oversight of the IPR conversions program with applicable conversion centers.With this agreement AD SOFTWARE increases its presence on the ATR market and in the French Aerospace Valley. The close relationship between ATR and AD SOFTWARE was one of the key decision criteria for ACIA as well as the ability to develop professional and technical interactions between key individuals. For the last few years, AD SOFTWARE has been expanding its software to cover production activities of Part 145 infrastructures: mobile applications for mechanics, cost control dashboards and real-time progression insights for heavy check and line maintenance. Furthermore, AD SOFTWARE has teamed-up with ACIA to build tailored solutions for aircraft conversions with the end-users in mind. The new modules have a fast time-to-market planning and will be designed by aviation professionals. Frederic Ulrich, CEO of ADS OFTWARE, commented: “We’ve known ACIA for a long time, their careful decision is a recognition of our ability to provide off-the-shelf solutions and an aviation dedicated IT developing capability.”
