Eastern Europe aftermarket IT specialist Locatory.com has launched Sensus MRO, a web-based application designed to make MRO processes more efficient. Marketing manager Asta Lisauskaite says the solution has already been chosen by FL Technics, Locatory’s sister company in the Avia Solution Group, along with Helisota MRO, a rotorcraft maintenance company. It says Sensus is also being considered by a major aviation company with maintenance shops across the globe.
FL Technics has been using Sensus for a while. “Initially, the company purchased several Sensus MRO modules, but after seeing the benefits, they implemented more,” Lisauskaite says. “Sensus MRO system helps the company to flexibly adapt to the most effective process.”
Helisota purchased Sensus’s time-tracking module which helps in recording and analyzing workforce utilization across all maintenance divisions.
A third client will likely use Sensus as its future operating system to complement its legacy system Quantum Control. Lisauskaite says the new software will enhance customer experience with improved capacity planning, customer portals, remote access for increased mobility, optimized quoting and invoicing and time tracking.
Sensus collects data on all working hours, reporting profitable and non-profitable hours and thus ROIs. The application gives, on an easily accessible portal, client data such as current project status and required approvals.
The Locatory marketer says the new software was developed based on the latest and most effective MRO processes and that its time-tracking and contract-management are the most advanced in the current market. “The time tracking module shows exceptionally detailed time entries that provide up-to-the minute accuracy. Reports let users see where employees’ time really went. Contract management facilitates preparation, quoting, approval, planning, cost administration and invoicing. Billing rules support quoting exact prices.”
In addition, a hangar slot-planning function simplifies hangar flow, identifies slot availability and monitors labor capacity versus requirements,
Locatory is currently working on enhancing Sensus to support paperless MRO operations.
