Bristow Group Selects Ramco

Aviation software provider Ramco Systems announced it will implement its Aviation M&E MRO Software V5.8 to help digitally transform the maintenance and engineering operations of Houston-based Bristow Group Inc. Bristow is among the world’s largest helicopter operators providing offshore transportation, search and rescue (SAR) and aircraft support services to government and civil organizations worldwide.

Ramco shares a decade-long relationship with Era Group (Era). Bristow’s merger with Era makes them the largest civilian offshore, SAR solution provider and the largest operator of helicopter models S92, AW189, and AW139. Ramco will deploy its aviation software to track inventory and manage maintenance, engineering and operations on a single integrated platform.

Compliant with global regulatory standards, the multi-country roll-out of Ramco Aviation says their software will help Bristow comply with multiple regulatory bodies, will provide cost savings while increasing efficiency and reducing potential for human error, as well as helping them achieve their goal of paperless engineering and operations.

Bristow’s staff will also be able to interact with the solution on Ramco’s mobile application, Ramco AnywhereApps and operational Electronic Flight Bag features, which will enable them to manage their operations and receive alerts on the go, enabling greater flexibility and quicker response time. Bristow will also be able to create a collaborative network of suppliers with real-time visibility and seamless performance tracking, thereby helping them improve their power by the hour (PBH) and consignment tracking abilities.

Ramco also says the implementation of their software will enable Bristow to achieve smart inventory, maintenance management and streamline organization-wide warranty tracking processes. The seamless integration of the solution with Bristow’s financial application will help the company achieve on-time billing and financial closure.

“When Bristow and Era merged, we had a decision to make on the go-forward software,” Stuart Stavley, senior vice president, Global Fleet Management, Bristow Group Inc., said. “Era shared a decade-long partnership and has been pleased with Ramco’s robust compliance and inventory management solutions. Our experience with Ramco’s proven global solutions was key in our selection. We look forward to our journey with Ramco.”

Virender Aggarwal, CEO, Ramco Systems, said, “Our partnership with Bristow underscores Ramco’s track record as a leading software provider for the rotor wing segment. By harnessing the innovative features of our software, we are confident Bristow will be able to optimise its operational efficiency and accelerate its digital transformation strategy.”
