[London, ENGLAND] Aerospace company Rolls-Royce announced Friday that it will launch a trial of its new e-business portal -- aeromanager -- at the Farnborough Air Show, which begins July 24.
Designed by Data Systems & Solutions, a joint venture between Rolls-Royce and Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), aeromanager will give airlines instant access to engine aftermarket services via the Internet.
Data Systems & Solutions currently manages nine hundred engines in service with 25 airlines. Now, the airlines will be able to access up-to-the-minute status reports on all their engines, 24 hours a day.
John Cheffins, Rolls-Royce managing director, airlines, said that aeromanager was a direct result of listening to the needs of customers.
Among the facilities being offered via aeromanager is a customized Internet gateway to all the engine information services provided by Data Systems & Solutions. The site will also provide engine leasing, together with full access to surplus inventory information and a central library of technical publications on aero engine products.
Rolls-Royce's new e-business portal is yet another indication that the Internet is being used as a trusted medium for the most demanding applications. The information carried by aeromanager will be vital to the safety of airline passengers.
Initially, Rolls-Royce will conduct a trial with an airline user group, then follow up with a full commercial launch at a later date.
