Flightdocs new Enterprise Inventory Platform Provides Aircraft Operators with Mobile Solution

Flightdocs Enterprise Inventory Platform includes an iPad app, giving access to aircraft maintenance inventory and purchasing data from anywhere.

Without the need for a dedicated barcode scanner and desktop computer to scan barcodes, the Flightdocs Enterprise Inventory iPad application provides a much easier way to identify, locate and utilize components from inventory.

Fort Myers, Florida (PRWEB) October 20, 2014

Flightdocs Inc. announces the release of its Enterprise Inventory Platform, the first module of its new Flightdocs Enterprise Suite of aviation data-management solutions. This new tool for web and mobile-based users allows aviation mechanics and operations personnel to track inventory, requests for repairs, parts requisition requests, purchase orders and shipping information.

Enterprise Inventory gives customers a complete view of the purchasing and parts management process, in real time, allowing for real-time updates and access to orders, component data, documentation and status.

Flightdocs will release Enterprise Inventory at the 2014 National Business Aviation Association’s Business Aviation Convention Exhibition at Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla. Guests can experience the web- and iPad-enabled inventory tool at Booth #4828 during the three-day trade show.

The new platform comes with an iPad application, giving access to aircraft maintenance inventory and purchasing data from anywhere. Mechanics can send instant requests for aircraft parts needed to carry out maintenance, and managers are able to process approvals, purchase orders and allocations of parts to the locations requested.

This aviation inventory management software is anticipated to greatly reduce inefficiencies associated with local server-based software and paper-based tracking systems.

The mobile app also includes barcode and QR code scanning capabilities, which is critical in the overall aircraft parts inventory tracking and management process. Users can also upload attachments such as 8130s and other documentation related to the components being utilized. Aviation operations and maintenance personnel have the ability to enter write-ups completely electronically, entirely paper-free, and report them in real time to home base.

“The QR code and scanning feature offers users a significant advantage over most existing inventory platforms,” said Greg Heine, vice president of business development of Flightdocs, based in Fort Myers, FL. “Without the need for a dedicated barcode scanner and desktop computer to scan barcodes, the iPad application provides a much easier way to identify, locate and utilize components from inventory.”

Enterprise Inventory Platform is easy to set up, requires minimal training time to get up and running, and all data is available from one screen. An easy to use search function is also incorporated in the aircraft parts management platform. Users will have a vast amount of information available to them at all times, accessible all from a single “Dashboard” page.

“We anticipate the benefits of this development to be substantial, including reducing the manpower required to manage inventory as well as costly errors on stock levels, and eliminating ‘rush’ shipment costs,” Heine added

Flightdocs’ headquarters is at 12600 Corporate Lakes Drive, Suite 7, Fort Myers, Florida 33913. Call 1 (800) 747-4560. Online at http://www.flightdocs.com. For more information about Flightdocs, please contact Greg Heine, VP of Business Development at (800) 747-4560.

About Flightdocs Inc.
Flightdocs was founded in Long Island, New York, in 2003 and moved its operations to Southwest Florida in 2010. Flightdocs provides aviation data-management solutions for Fortune 500 companies, individual aircraft owners and charter fleets. The company has helped lead the rapid adoption of cloud based technology in the aviation industry, and was the first maintenance tracking provider to offer a web-based solution, an iPad application, and a fully compliant electronic signature.

Complainants press case vs Montero; Mitsubishi expects lower sales

December 2, 2015 (updated)

Complainants of SUA (sudden unintended acceleration) incidents of Mitsubishi’s Montero Sport  demanded that the vehicle manufacturer must buyback the defective units, acknowledge vehicle defects and stop selling this model.

This was demanded by Atty. Charlie V. Tumaru, spokesman of some 30 complainants among 97, during the first  hearing conducted by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) on the SUA controversy.

The DTI hearing was also attended by experts from the Department of Science and Technology, Technical Education Skills Development Authority, Philippine Society of Mechanical Engineers,  UP College of Engineering and Automobile Association of the Philippines.

The group would like Mitsubishi to acknowledge the defect and since this affects the safety it should stop selling it. Our concern is  protection of consumers, Tumaru said.

DTI Undersecretary Victorio Mario Dimagiba also ordered officials of Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corp. (MMPC) to identify its local agent or the corporate identity that should be directly answerable over SUA complaints.

Dimagiba issued this order after the complainants revealed that MMPC lawyers told them that MMPC, the local distributor of Montero, is not the manufacturer of Montero.

Froilan Dytianquin, MMPC first vice-president, however, said that the manufacturer of Montero is Mitsubishi Motors Thailand but since MMPC is the Philippine distributor then it is the one directly responsible for the Mitsubishi vehicles. Its dealers are independent entities.

Since the Mitsubishi dealers  are not owned by MMPC, Dimagiba also instructed the complainants to also directly state in their position papers and affidavits of their demand not to sell Montero units.

At least 6 complainants made personal testimonies of SUA incidents.

Complainant Atty. Bernardino Bernardo narrated the SUA incident of Montero Sport during the funeral for his late father that injured 13 and damaged 7 cars. Two of the injured died.

For his part, Dytianquin said that all those Montero Sport units with SUA complaints had been subjected to rigorous tests by Mitsubishi engineers. All Mitsubishi vehicles have onboard diagnostic computer or a black boc that records all fault codes that occured in the vehicle. The black box recorded no fault codes.

We are submitting all these position papers to the DTI, said Dytianquin, who earlier insisted that SUA is impossible to happen in the Montero Sport.

The complainants, however, stressed that it is no longer proper for Mitsubishi to press its position of no defect and dismiss the incidents to human error when there are 97 complaints of the same issue.

Earlier, Dytianquin said its sales of Montero will certainly be affected by the SUA controversy.

MMPC output is also expected to fall 15 percent this year as production has encountered disruption from the  relocation of its operation to Laguna from Ortigas Extension.

MMPC, however, expects to raise its production by 17 percent next year on strong demand.

Bank of Ireland launches Personal Contract Purchase for second hand cars

Bank of Ireland Finance today (Wednesday, 30 July 2014) announced that, together with its franchise partners, it is launching a new Personal Contract Purchase* (PCP) product for second hand cars from Friday, 1 August 2014, the first Irish Bank to offer this product for the purchase of second hand cars. This is an extension of their current PCP offering on new vehicles and will enhance and support the growth of the PCP product through its franchise dealers.

The Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) is a customer friendly product that allows consumers to drive a new car without the associated costs of ownership of same. Traditionally only available for the purchase of new cars, the extension of the PCP to second hand cars significantly expands the reach of the product across the market. Qualifying second hand cars will include vehicles up to 18 months old. Bank of Ireland has established itself as the market leader in the motor finance industry, partnering with 14 leading motor franchises in the Irish market.

Pat Creed, Managing Director, Bank of Ireland Finance, said: Conditions in the motor industry have been very challenging since 2007 when new car sales decreased from 152,830 to 74,300 in 2013. Consumers postponed the purchase of a new car which in turn led to a much older car pool in Ireland. It also means that the cost of purchasing a new car is now much greater with less equity in the older trade in.

However, Bank of Ireland s range of products including PCP and low rate subsidised offers are helping customers get their new car with affordable repayments and rates from as low as 0% APR.

With more than twice as many 142 cars registered on the first day of the new registration plate compared with the same day last year, it is evident that a significant number of consumers are returning to the market. The growth in the popularity of PCP and low APR rates has been such that over 71% of all new cars purchased by consumers are now selecting these forms of payments. We are seeing very strong approval rates for PCP and low APR rates, with 90% of applications being approved for finance.

2014 is proving to be the best year for new car sales since 2008 and looks set to achieve sales of 90,000 vehicles by year end. This strong performance, whilst coming from a low base, tends to be a lead indicator and reflective of the re-emergence of consumer and business confidence. This is the second year of the dual registration plate, which has also helped change the traditional seasonality where vehicle purchases would be frontloaded in the first quarter. This has ensured that there is a more steady flow of business throughout the summer months which historically would not have happened prior to the 132 plate launch last year.

Another impact of the recession was the shortage of used cars for the industry to sell which has resulted in a significant number of cars being imported to supply the demand. It is estimated that the importation of second hand cars will reach 50,000 by the end of this year. The growing popularity of PCP will now ensure that there is a strong supply of good three year old second hand cars coming back to the market on an ongoing basis.

Interestingly, we are seeing a slightly younger customer profile on our PCP deals. Industry research supports this as it shows that younger customers prefer the lower monthly payment and are also very used to the tariff type concept where they pay for the use of an item and upgrade as with their mobile phones.

New business in the commercial motor market has seen strong growth in the first six months compared to the same period last year, again a positive indicator of renewed confidence amongst SMEs. The agri sector is also buoyant with a 6.8% increase in tractor sales year to date.

The C02 changes implemented by Government in July 2008 have been instrumental in influencing consumer purchasing decisions. The last seven years have also seen a significant change in the shift from petrol to diesel purchases and this is reflected in that 71.7% of vehicles purchased in 2007 were petrol and this compares with 73% of cars purchased in 2014 being diesel. Similarly the level of low emission purchases in C02 Band A has increased from 1.42% in 2007 to 67% in 2014.

The introduction of a PCP product for second hand cars should further drive growth in this market for the second half of the year. , concluded Pat Creed.

Note to Editors

A Personal Contract Purchase is a form of vehicle finance for individual consumers who are looking to pay a fixed, relatively low monthly payment for a set contract period of somewhere between 24 and 36 months with the right to drive the vehicle while ownership is retained by the funding company. It is similar to contract hire or leasing, however, in the case the customer has to option to ultimately acquire the vehicle at the end of the finance term for a previously agreed amount which is set at the outset of the contract.

Bank of Ireland Finance provides motor finance to the following motor distributors; Toyota, Ford, Lexus, Hyundai, Opel, Kia, Peugeot, Mercedes-Benz, Honda, Volvo, Land Rover, Jaguar, Suzuki and Mitsubishi.
