28 November, 2017: HAECO Hong Kong has introduced a mobile application – ULTRAMAIN Mobile Mechanic – for use in its Light Maintenance operations at Hong Kong International Airport.
Hong Kong collaborated with Ultramain Systems, Inc., an international asset management and logistics software service provider, to enhance ULTRAMAIN’s Mobile Mechanic to meet HAECO’s paperless needs. Cathay Pacific Airways provided support during the project and the airline has become the launch customer of HAECO’s implementation of Mobile Mechanic – making use of the system and application.
This application permits technical personnel to access electronic task cards, receive job assignments, create non-routine task cards as well as sign off task cards electronically through mobile devices. The airline customer can now have real-time monitoring of job status.
Clement Lam, director & general manager, HAECO Hong Kong, said, “We are delighted to introduce the Mobile Mechanic application to our long-standing customer Cathay Pacific. As a customer-oriented and socially responsible organisation, we are committed to improving our operational efficiency through innovation. We are confident that this application will help increase productivity and minimise the impact on the environment in which we operate.”
Mark McCausland, president of Ultramain Systems, said, “We welcome HAECO to our paperless MRO family. It is our belief that the productivity and environmental benefits that HAECO is able to achieve through the use of Mobile Mechanic has set a new standard for third party maintenance providers. It further illustrates that operators and MROs can benefit from a Simple Mobile Paperless strategy.”
