Rusada and Conduce take strides towards paperless processes with new partnership

Aircraft maintenance software provider Rusada and mobile solutions specialist Conduce have agreed to a strategic partnership.

The new deal was announced at the Airline & Aerospace MRO & Flight Operations IT Conference in Amsterdam this week.

Under the partnership the two companies will join forces on projects requiring both a maintenance software solution and an eTechLog solution.

Rusada and Conduce have previously worked together on a number of projects, including their current joint deployment at cargo operator Texel Air.

The new partnership includes the signing of an ‘e-contract’ on a mobile device, formalises the company’s working relationship, and sets targets for future joint projects.

Richard Landsbury, sales director at Rusada, said: “A key aim of this partnership is to make the transition to paperless processes more accessible and affordable for aircraft operators around the globe.

“The combination of our two systems allows users to conduct much of their operations without using a single sheet of paper.”

Paperless processes are available by connecting Rusada’s ENVISION solution to Conduce’s eTechlog8 through a Representational State Transfer (REST) application programming interface, which allows for the transmission of data between the two, in real time.

A typical scenario would see ENVISION scheduling the flight and assigning it to an aircraft.

This information would then be transmitted to eTechlog8, where the line maintenance team would perform pre-flight checks using a mobile device, before transferring responsibility of the aircraft to the pilot.

The aircraft would then fly the sector, with the pilot completing the journey log and recording any defects before handing back to the line maintenance team.

Journey logs would then be transmitted to ENVISION to be recorded against the aircraft and its components, along with any defects. Corrective maintenance could then be planned, executed, and signed-off using ENVISION and its apps.

Paul Boyd, managing director at Conduce, said: “The Conduce mobile aviation solutions have been developed to allow for easy data transfer across multiple airline engineering and flight operations systems.

“Strategic partnerships such as this enable airlines to select the best of breed applications across their business. The systems integration with Rusada’s ENVISION will provide customers with the real time operational and maintenance status of their fleets wherever their location.”
