Jan Booij (l), managing director of Hevilift Group, and Virender Aggarwal, CEO of Ramco Systems, explain Ramco’s software solutions for charter operator Hevilift.

Aviation software provider Ramco Systems (Booth No. N3004) kicked off Heli-Expo’13 with the announcement of a new client, charter service provider Hevilift Group, to its growing worldwide customer base.

Operating across 15 countries throughout the Asia-Pacific region, Hevilift uses a fleet of 50 aircraft to provide a variety of services including medevac, corporate, military and offshore lift capabilities. Under the agreement, Ramco will provide Hevilift with a Web-based software solution to manage, among other aspects, maintenance and engineering; supply chain management; and maintenance, repair and overhaul data. The software will also help Hevilift manage international payroll across several countries and jurisdictions.

“Ramco had a lot of the solutions we were looking for, that evolved out of having to build a computer system to support our network and our growing need for information and tracking,” Hevilift managing director Jan Booij told AIN.

Booij also noted the need to provide reliable connectivity and tracking service in areas without reliable Internet access. To address this concern, Ramco will utilize satellite connectivity for near real-time access to its cloud-based management network from the more remote regions of Hevilift’s operational footprint. The company will also maintain a central information hub.

Ramco CEO Virender Aggarwal called Hevilift “a great addition” to his company’s portfolio.
