HOUSTON: Global cloud enterprise software provider Ramco Systems has announced ten years of Ramco Operations with Era Group Inc. (Era). Era, with more than 70 years of experience, is one of the largest helicopter operators in the world and the longest serving helicopter operator in the U.S. Era’s helicopters are primarily used to transport personnel to, from and between offshore oil and gas production platforms, drilling rigs and other installations. In addition, Era’s helicopters are used to perform emergency response services, firefighting, utility, VIP transport and other services. Era was in search of software to handle inventory values with the complexities associated with power by the hour (PBH), consignment and rentals and was keenly focused on eliminating the multiple home grown and off-the-shelf systems in use to control maintenance and inventory. With the implementation of the RAMCO software, Era achieved its goal to enhance its operational visibility on all aspects associated with aircraft status. Era expanded the use of Ramco with additional Ramco organizational units for its operations in Brazil (Aeróleo) and Colombia (Sicher) in 2017 and 2018, respectively. Last year, Era renewed its commitment to Ramco by signing up for major upgrade to the software, which will provide it with latest innovations from Ramco, including state-of-the-art Mobile Apps. Celebrating the partnership, Virender Aggarwal, CEO, Ramco Systems, said, “Over the years, Ramco and Era have cherished a mutually enriched relationship. While Ramco has supported Era every step of the way, the feedback and data obtained from Era has also helped Ramco refine our products. We look forward to continue working with Era and help each other grow along the way.” Stuart Stavley, Senior Vice President of Operations & Fleet Management, Era Group Inc., said, “Ramco Aviation is the mainstay of our technological foundation. The complete solution, simplified workflows, reduced paperwork and enhancements like B2B connectivity have contributed immensely to our operational efficiency over the last decade.” Ramco Aviation Software is trusted by 22,000+ users to manage 4,000+ aircraft globally. Accessible on cloud and mobile, Ramco Aviation Software continues to innovate with ‘Anywhere Apps’, significantly reducing transaction time both during aircraft-on-ground (AOG) conditions and critical aircraft turnarounds. Ramco is changing the paradigm of enterprise software with Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning based solutions, powered by cool new features such as voice-based transactions on Google Assistant or Alexa, chatbots, mail bots, HUBs and cognitive solutions. With 75+ Aviation leaders onboard, Ramco is the solution of choice for several large airlines and top heli-operators and multiple MROs around the world.
