AMOS including the AMOSmobile suite meeting VAECO’s expectations

The festive signing ceremony took place in Hanoi on 6th December 2022 and marked a successful conclusion to a long and complex pre-sales journey for all involved. Vietnam Airlines Engineering Company (VAECO), a subsidiary of Vietnam Airlines, has signed agreements with Swiss Aviation Software Ltd. (Swiss-AS) and NGS Equipment and Communication Joint Stock (NGS), the Swiss-AS local partner in Vietnam, who will support Swiss-AS in the process of implementing the MRO software solution AMOS.

Five years ago, Swiss-AS released the AMOS MRO edition, specifically designed to fulfil the needs of MRO providers. This AMOS edition, successfully implemented several times since its release, as well as the Swiss-AS AMOSmobile packages for stores management (AMOSmobile/STORES) and line/base maintenance (AMOSmobile/EXEC), fully met the functional requirements that VAECO and Vietnam Airlines were looking for in their tender process. AMOS includes the tools required to fully manage the maintenance program with more efficient data synchronisation, allowing the business to pursue the goal of reducing costs and maintenance time, without any concessions being made in terms of safety and quality, as well as improving the operational readiness factor of the fleet. Furthermore, AMOS provides state-of-the-art modules for planning and controlling all maintenance processes, including optimised assignment of staff resources when defining the production plan – with the objective of increasing labour productivity and efficiency. The full integration of real-time data in AMOS over the different data streams in AMOS – from material management, to engineering, to planning and production – enable informed and effective business decisions to be made and therefore minimise flight disruptions, delays, and cancellations.

Increase of Efficiency / Productivity expected

Once the AMOS implementation has been completed, VAECO foresees that labour productivity will increase by 15-20%, that maintenance turnaround times of aircraft will shorten, and that the higher manpower productivity will allow VAECO to extend its third-party maintenance market share, which is currently in great demand as a result of the airline industry having returned to profitability after the Covid-19 pandemic.

AMOS will fast-track the digital transformation process of VAECO/Vietnam Airlines

Mr. Nguyen Chien Thang, Deputy General Director of Vietnam Airlines, announces: "The new software will make an important contribution to helping VAECO become a leading aircraft maintenance service provider in the region, while promoting digital transformation and information technology application in Vietnam Airlines' production and business activities. Thereby, ensuring a solid technical foundation for Vietnam Airlines' 4-star, now approaching 5-star, in standard flight services."

With the onboarding of VAECO, another Vietnamese customer joins the AMOS customer community and reinforces the Swiss-AS predominant market position in Vietnam. Fabiano Faccoli, the CEO of Swiss-AS, comments on the newly signed deal: “Our strong position in Vietnam as well as Swiss-AS continued investment into the AMOS MRO Edition, have once more paid off. AMOS will surely accelerate the digital transformation process of VAECO as well as Vietnam Airlines supporting their growing efficiency and productivity. With Swiss-AS now using latest technology (Flutter/Dart from Google) in the further development of AMOS apps, we assure that the large AMOS community – now including VAECO and Vietnam Airlines – will also in future benefit from intelligent, best-in-class, highly secure and enjoyable-to-use software.”

Mr. Pham The Truong, NGS Deputy General Director shares: “NGS is proud to be part of this important project with VAECO and Swiss-AS and will strive to continue our track record of successfully bringing world-best solutions and technologies to Vietnamese enterprises to fast track our country’s digital transformation process, enabling Vietnam to become a prominent player in the region and globally.”
