Amsterdam, The Netherlands; 3 December 2012 - AerData B.V., the provider of software and services for the aviation industry announces that KLM UK Engineering Limited (KLMUKE), the UK-based MRO, has selected AerData’s STREAM records scanning and indexing software solution. 

Commenting on the announcement, Mark Nieuwendijk, Managing Director, AerData said; “We are delighted to announce that KLM UK Engineering Limited is our first MRO user of STREAM.  STREAM is already well established in the airline and lessor community.  The fact that an MRO such as KLM UK Engineering Limited is going to scan its maintenance records into STREAM further proves that STREAM is the only true aircraft records lifecycle solution giving benefits for all parties involved in operating, owning and maintaining aircraft.”

 Duncan Rae, Base Maintenance Manager at KLM UK Engineering Limited said; “We initially wanted to give our customers a method whereby they could view the progress of their maintenance immediately and in real time, by viewing closed work cards in an online system.  STREAM provided this functionality along with the ability for the customer to check and approve or reject and make comments on the closed records, which we can then respond to and rectify if required.  The system has been operational for 6 months and both we and our customers have benefitted from STREAM enormously.”

 Rae continued; “AerData worked very closely with us to integrate our IT system with STREAM, to provide us with the ability to generate customised reports from STREAM and to make system developments that make STREAM an integral part of our processes.”
