The “Number One” priority for every aircraft maintenance organization is, and will always be, “to keep the aircraft flying safely”.
However, a critical balance must be struck between safety and profitability. Maintenance costs represent a significant proportion of a carrier’s operating budget, leading airlines to look for new ways to increase overall efficiency within their maintenance organizations. Among many challenges, the most critical are to:
Improve performance of maintenance operations through shorter turnaround times,
Reduce overall maintenance costs through No Fault Found and associated inflated inventories,
Increase aircraft utilization through optimized maintenance processes,
Minimize flight delays and service disruptions, and
Address increasing regulatory requirements from Aviation authorities.
Many companies still rely on legacy systems to meet these challenges, but require user friendly features inherent in open systems such as process integration, mobile accessibility and decision support tools.

Benefits of a WebPMI™ Implementation
Overall Improvement in Productivity The WebPMI™ system provides leading functionality to improve performance and service levels. WebPMI™ customers generally experience a 15 – 20% overall improvement in productivity.
Cost Savings The WebPMI™ system generates significant cost savings opportunities across various departments. Amongst other examples, you may achieve savings of 10 – 12% of the value of purchased items under warranty due to accurate claim information.
Best Practices and Customization The WebPMI™ system will provide you with M&E industry “best practices” and processes. Developed as a pre-configured system, it is based on business processes that constitute industry accepted standards. However, the software allows tailoring and replication of customer specific business rules through a series of system switches.
Visibility The WebPMI™ solution provides your management with a world-class application to improve management visibility and real time data access supporting an efficient decision making process. It empowers maintenance managers to monitor and control the entire M & E environment and take prompt corrective actions.
WebPMI™ will make the interaction with the local government regulatory agencies easier, such as F.A.A., E.A.S.A., and T.C., etc. by making compliance and airworthiness information immediately available upon request.
Extend WebPMI™ to a Global Solution
Make WebPMI™ the core of your global solution by connecting to additional value adding applications such as:
Maintenance Manuals along with the airline’s locally created maintenance program jobcard
DigiREPORTS™, a comprehensive, full- featured WEB-based Reporting application,

Local Printing on the Fly …
WebPMI LPD is a software component which allows the application to print to any managed printer through the internet without end user intervention. This is accomplished without the use of Virtual Private Networks or other ‘network extending technologies’.
Interface with Finance
The ultimate goal of this application is to provide visibility of the cost of maintenance activities so that corrective actions can be taken to improve the financial accountability of the company by allowing 3-way matching of purchase orders, invoices and payments between WebPMI and the Financial System.
Interface with Flight Operations
WebPMI can and has been interfaced directly with the output of most Flight Operations packages through EFLIP. This avoids the error prone and manual double entry of times and cycles and provides Flight Operations with the up-to-date status of aircraft availability and maintenance due activities.
