Ramco System, a global aviation software provider, says it has secured an order to digitise the maintenance and engineering operations of Caverton Helicopters Limited (CHL), a leading a aviation and marine logistics player in Nigeria.
The development, which was announced on Tuesday, April 16, allows Ramco to deploy its advanced modules for flight operations, safety compliance, reporting, inventory management, and MRO (maintenance, repair and overhaul) sales for Caverton.
Caverton helicopter, a segment of Caverton Offshore Support Group (COSG), is in charge of emergency medical evacuation and search and rescue operations. It provides logistics services to support Nigeria’s offshore oil and gas sector.
It also operates a fleet of 30 helicopters out of Murtala Muhammad International Airport in Lagos, Port Harcourt Airforce base, Warri and Douala, Cameroon.
Ramco is also expected to implement its Aviation M&E MRO solution V5.8. With advanced applications, Caverton’s operations team will now be able to view multiple indicators and processes on a single dashboard.
The suite, which reduces manpower and human error, will also improve maintenance schedules, fleet forecasting and planning and management of logistics, thereby improving overall safety and efficiency.
“We have been looking for a solution provider to pave the way for the company’s digital transformation. With its strong track record, Ramco Aviation Software will be able to cater to our end-to-end operational needs. We look forward to advancing our digital strategy with Ramco,” said Rotimi Makanjuola, chief operating officer, COSG.
Josiah Choms, managing director, CHL, said “time is of immense importance during an emergency medical evacuation.”
“By having Ramco’s integrated system, Caverton will now be able to coordinate flight and maintenance schedules efficiently, assist automation and optimize productivity thereby ensuring we respond to emergencies in the region with greater speed,” he added.
Virender Aggarwal, CEO of Ramco systems, said, “we at Ramco continuously strive to offer next-gen, innovative solutions that can help resolve major challenges in the aviation industry.”
“Our partnership with Caverton underscores our track record in the helicopter segment where we count 7 of the Top 10 Heli Operators in the U.S. (by fleet size) as clients. We are confident that with Ramco’s one stop solution, Caverton will now harness the software’s innovative features to cut out inefficiencies, and optimize aircraft and customer management,” Aggarwal added.
