Airline maintenance firm ATC Lasham is improving its production environment with a software suite from Lawson Software.
ATC, based at Lasham Airfield in Hampshire, was established by Dan Air in 1954, and for more than 30 years has been used for the heavy maintenance of Boeing aircraft.
In 2003, due to business expansion, it added a second site at London Southend Airport, primarily for the maintenance of Europe 's expanding Airbus fleet.
ATC Lasham has been running a mixture of in-house developed production systems and packaged systems, but neither can now match market requirements, said ATC.
It needed to find a system that would enable common processes across both its sites, and provide simple, seamless integration.
The Lawson M3 suite will aid greater visibility across the entire business, better management of stock levels, and, through implementation of Lawson Business Intelligence, real-time information for management reporting.
Andy Finch, general manager at ATC Lasham, said, "The fact that the Lawson M3 software is specifically tailored to the needs of a maintenance business, and can be scaled as we grow our business, means we now have a future-proof solution."
To aid the implementation process, the company will deploy the Lawson Learning Accelerator training tool.
