Global IT services company Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has announced the go-live of a new Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) application programme with Garuda Indonesia Airlines, Indonesia's national airline.
The programme is being managed through the aircraft maintenance subsidiary GMF Aeroasia.
According to a statement by TCS, Garuda's relationship with TCS began in 2012 when the airline sought a solution to upgrade, consolidate and enhance its MRO technology infrastructure which was spread across numerous applications from multiple vendors.
The programme to implement the TCS SWIFT MRO platform moved from blueprint phase to go-live in 13 months, TCS said in its statement. This was fast-track deployment as a typical MRO project takes three to five years to complete.
With the TCS SWIFT MRO solution, Garuda replaced over 50 legacy applications, implemented over 300 business processes, and migrated over 3 million records of data for 140 aircrafts and fitted parts into a unified solution, the company said in the statement.
The first phase of the project, now live, comprises the SAP-based End-to-End Pre-Configured SWIFT MRO solution for MRO, supply chain processes, finance and human resources modules.
"The first phase of Garuda's MRO transformation is now complete and in production, and phase two is coming soon, further helping the airline deliver exemplary aircraft maintenance services in line with our strong growth and development of a global leading airline brand," said Judi Rifajantoro, EVP Strategy, Business Development and Risk Management, Garuda Indonesia.
