A wide range of integrated efficiencies can be included in your RAAS solution either as part of an initial system implementation or as a future enhancement.
Fleet Status Information Exchange API
RAAS allows data exchange with Ops/Dispatch systems for the purposes of sending lists of outstanding defects, next due significant maintenance events, maintenance block times and other information pertinent to operational planning.
Management Dashboards and Data Mining
Dashboards and advanced data analytics are enabled by direct access to your RAAS database, for the purposes of data mining. Tools such as Microsoft PowerBI, Tableau or SAP Business Objects can be used to create custom dashboards and analysis reports, for use either inside or outside of RAAS.
Automated Airframe Time Updates
RAAS allows data from third-party sources such as a flight operations or flight following system to post time updates against the aircraft in your RAAS database, enabling fully automatic airframe time updating with no need for human intervention. When deployed, this integrated efficiency in-turn enables co-benefits of airframe-time-accurate e-compliance input, system generated maintenance releases, EML tablet app function and more.
RAAS offers an entire feature set that enables paperless operation including work assignment, electronic signature and maintenance release to the job, job-task or job-task-step level.
Mobile purchase approval allows roaming users and non-RAAS users to review and approve purchase requests via email link, with no need to log into the main RAAS system. A link embedded in the automated PO Approval emails allows you to navigate to a mobile-friendly approval webpage that will ask you if you want to approve or reject the purchase request. A VP, Director or any other individual with appropriate security permissions will be able to approve an order from wherever they are via their mobile device.
Electronic Maintenance Log (EML) App for the Cockpit
RAAS offers Electronic Maintenance Log (EML) iPad/Windows apps for the cockpit. Our EML apps are designed to allow defect reporting from the aircraft while inflight, closure and/or deferral of defects, display of recently accomplished work and cleared defects, and lists of next due items. The app is able to function in real-time or can work as an offline utility that will sync data to the main RAAS host once your tablet gains cellular/WiFi access.
Finance/Accounting System Data Exchange
RAAS is designed to send pertinent data to a best of breed accounting and finance system. Typical data sent can include stock receipts, material expense/consumption data, vendor invoice details and customer invoice details.
Maintenance Labor Data Capture
For maintenance labor data tracking RAAS offers task clock-in and clock-out from shop-floor scan stations or mobile devices. Suitable for both paperless and paper-based environments.
Mobile Apps for Material Management
Stock take, picklist processing and stock count functionality are available in mobile friendly user interfaces, enabling bring-your-own-device functionality within the RAAS suite.
This integrated efficiency introduces Active Directory communication via LDAP, which in-turn allows synchronization of RAAS usernames and passwords with your Windows Active Directory Server and enables Single Sign-On (SSO). This integrated efficiency is extremely useful to help reduce network end-user authentication security loopholes, particularly in larger organizations with larger user groups.
