Low-code: The wind beneath your wings
Aviation business processes are complex due to various task dependencies, supply chain challenges, and the constant pressure to deliver within shorter TATs. Here are some of the benefits of low-code-powered aviation software that can help ease your operational constraints:
Quick and efficient
With a visual drag-and-drop interface, you can build a solution in a fraction of the time it would take with traditional methods.
Low-code solutions help lower the cost of deployment, as they require limited technical expertise. IT teams don't have to maintain servers or manage applications.
Easily expand the capabilities of your solutions to meet your specific aviation business process needs, without the need for extensive coding.
As your business grows, SOPs and dependencies are bound to evolve. Low-code means your system can grow with you without having to manage servers or backend databases.
Why choose custom aviation software over a traditional ERP?
There are several reasons why custom aviation software built on low-code can be a better choice than a traditional ERP system for your business. Airlines, FBOs, MROs, helicopter operators, and aircraft part suppliers all have unique requirements, with multiple workflows that need to be addressed by their IT systems. Well-tailored aviation software meets specific needs to provide real-time aircraft maintenance and repair data, allowing technicians to make informed decisions quickly. It must also integrate with third-party systems to comply with regulatory requirements, manage complex maintenance schedules, and track aircraft parts and components.
Traditional ERP systems can be expensive and time-consuming to implement and customize. Custom aviation software, on the other hand, can be designed and implemented more efficiently and cost-effectively, with a focus on the specific needs of the organization. Operations teams and maintenance planners demand seamless data flow for effective flight planning, maintenance management, and real-time data feeds from aircraft that cater to unscheduled events.
What does low-code mean to a director of maintenance?
Department heads and business users who understand their process flows and task dependencies can quickly deploy their custom aviation software with minimal lines of code over a traditional ERP. Low-code provides aviation companies with a more tailored, efficient, and cost-effective solution that meets their unique needs and challenges.Read more
