India, March 17, 2010: Ramco, Global Aviation Maintenance & Engineering (M&E) and Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul (MRO) software provider, announced today the release of cutting edge software tools for the Global Aerospace & Defense, Civil Aviation & MRO Industry.
EDK (Extension Development Kit) and ITK (Implementation Tool Kit), part of Ramco’s recent Aviation Series 5 Maintenance & Engineering / Maintenance Repair & Overhaul Enterprise Software Suite, empowers Series 5 customers to quickly extend the base product functionality, by locally adding new screens or personalizing existing transactions, without affecting the base code. These tools allow a customer to remain on the Standard Product Release cycle while filling the need of operating in an environment that accommodates the unique practices of their business operations, built upon Ramco’s Best and Next Business practices. As a direct response to market demands, these tools provide immediate reduction in overall cost of ownership and fulfill a business need to customers who want to have the “power of change” in their own hands. If their business changes, the solution can change without being dependent on long term product roadmaps and release cycles.
“Ramco understands that every customer has business processes considered unique and necessary to maintain their competitive advantage. As such, this uniqueness needs to be affordably reflected within the Series 5 Solution. Series 5 EDK and ITK enables Customers to perform simple, but technologically advanced changes while ensuring their investment is protected, a benefit as we know is not offered by other companies providing products in this market,” says Jim Fitzgerald, President of Ramco Systems Global Aviation Solutions.
EDK and ITK are available to all customers using the Series 5 product and can be used to make changes to existing screens (adding and hiding data collection fields), change screen callouts, adjust menu structures, enhance workflows or create entirely new transactions that interact seamlessly with the core product.
