Nov 11: Chennai-based software products and services provider Ramco Systems Ltd is all set to expand its reach into the North Asian markets, with Ramco Aviation Suite.

The Ramco Group company on Friday said that it has inked a strategic partnership with a Shanghai-based solutions provider SRN Information Technology (Shanghai) Co.

They will be implementing Ramco Aviation Suite to cover materials management, maintenance, MRO sales, engineering & program along with human capital management and finance & accounting.

With the acquisition of new planes, pilots and technology in bulk and at breakneck speed, carriers from across the Greater China region are also gearing up for a major fleet expansion, said the company in a filing.

China opens up a new opportunity for growth in aviation for us,” he added.

Designed to be accessible on cloud and mobile, Ramco Aviation Software continues to add technological innovations with ‘Anywhere Apps’, to significantly reduce transaction time both during AOG conditions and critical aircraft turnarounds, said the filing.
