PRLog - Dec. 20, 2012 - Air Botswana has recently implemented a maintenance package that includes fleet management, inventory and logistics control, documentation management, security management and reliability statistics reports. Though not required by any regulation, Air Botswana elected to proactively implement a framework of internal controls over its maintenance department as part of its continuing efforts to adopt global best practices.
To achieve this in the most efficient way, Air Botswana chose AIRPACK as its ERP software platform. ADSoftware has first migrated the data of the three ATR42-500s; two ATR 72-500s and two BAe146 -100s owned by the airline. AIRPACK Suite was then installed and implemented across twenty users; trained on site by two experts responsible for the start-up assistance of the system.
“For the first six months of running the solutions, Air Botswana will be monitored closely by our team to allow the last required customizations and modifications necessary to optimize usage of the system,” comments Mr Fred Ulrich CEO of ADSoftware.
Air Botswana is an IATA member and has successfully received its Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) certification;
