ADSoftware increases footprint in African aviation market

Posted 1 September 2014 · Add Comment

ADSoftware has announced that AirPack solution is now one of the leading MRO software solutions on the African market.

ADSoftware’s presence in the African aviation industry started in 2003 when the French aviation software developer and publisher was selected to provide its flagship AirPack maintenance software by Air Austral in  Reunion Island. Seeing the growing potential of the African aviation, in 2009 the company decided to open a new office in South Africa through its local partner, Hi-Fly Marketing. To date ADSoftware has increased its footprint on the African continent by signing 16 operators, spanning right across the continent from countries like Algeria, Morocco, Ivory Coast, Botswana, Mauritania, Sudan, Mali, Gabon, Nigeria, South Africa, Reunion Island and Burkina Faso to name a few. 

The AirPack solution developed by ADSoftware was one of the first maintenance application on the market to offer an innovative MRO ERP solution suitable for small and medium aviation operators. Ever since, AirPack has proved that powerful solutions don’t have to be complicated and expensive. The accessibility of the system together with the technical support in the implementation and integration phase have been keys to its success in Africa. The flexibility and pricing structure of the package allows fleets that are as small as 2 aircraft to as large as 30 aircraft to benefit from the system. 

By delivering superior business solutions through enhanced and automated functions within the AirPack MRO solution, ADSoftware has attracted offshore helicopters operators, national airlines and leasing companies into supporting their expansion and fleet modernisation. 

In December 2008, Air Botswana signed a deal with ATR for two 68-seat advanced turbo propeller aircraft ATR 72–500 worth US$37 million. The aircraft were delivered in March 2009 and integrated into AirPack in 2011 when the national airline decided to proactively implement a framework of internal controls over its maintenance department as part of its continuing efforts to adopt global best practices. 

In 2013, the newly launched national carrier Air Côte d'Ivoire selected ADSoftware’s fleet management system and logistics solutions to support its modern fleet of Airbus A319, thus becoming the first Airbus operator in Africa to select AirPack. “We are aiming to support African airlines in their transition towards operating new generation aircraft. If we include MRO/CAMO fleets, we now handle more than a hundred A320s,” confirms Fred Ulrich, ADSoftware’s CEO.
