Latest Release of HCL AXON’s iMRO Endorsed by SAP
London, 3rd Nov 2011 – HCL AXON, a wholly owned subsidiary of HCL Technologies and global pioneer in leveraging leading technologies to drive value realization, today announced the new release of iMRO® version 4.5.2, an SAP-endorsed business solution which has evolved from the previous iMRO version 4.0. iMRO is HCL AXON's maintenance, repair and overhaul industry solution add-on for the SAP® ERP application. It complements and extends SAP ERP, particularly for use by organizations that maintain complex, expensive and regulated assets such as in travel and transportation, high-tech, energy or aerospace and defence.
Benedikt Hermann, Vice President – Product Innovation, HCL AXON, said, “The latest version of iMRO version 4.5.2 stems from our rich industry experience and successful implementation of several projects in the MRO space. We are very pleased that more and more companies are benefiting from the combination of iMRO and SAP ERP to improve their management of complex assets such as aircrafts.”
HCL AXON’s new iMRO release expands the functional scope of the solution, including new additions of Workscoping Workbench (WBX), Staging Area Picklist and Periodic Estimates. Furthermore, the developments to the solution encompass Maintenance Scheduling, Flight Sector Management, Modifications Induction Workbench (MBX), Sourcing and Swap, as well as Declare Serviceable & Conformity enhancements.
The latest release will allow organisations to streamline their maintenance operations so that labour productivity is optimised and material costs are contained while maximising profitability for their services. It helps ensure better forecasting of work that is due for any asset and allows planners to package this work and schedule it. Once the work is packaged and scheduled, the materials can be staged and picked for the respective tasks in the work packages. This is all achieved using the iMRO workbenches.
“iMRO 4.5.2 is an enhanced interface with extended industry-specific functionality to improve user productivity, best-practices and higher asset utilization,” said Phil Te Hau, Director, Solution Management, Travel Services, SAP. “In addition, customers benefit from a standard platform for MRO based on SAP technology. This latest version of HCL AXON’s iMRO, endorsed by SAP, further underscores the importance of SAP’s ecosystem strategy, through which we are cooperating with partners to support our customers’ businesses, drive new levels of collaboration, and provide additional choices and flexibility.”
HCL AXON has over 16 years experience with SAP solutions at over 100 customer sites covering aviation, aerospace and complex asset management and maintenance organizations. Today, five of HCL AXON’s clients have already agreed to implement the latest iMRO release, one of which is planned to go live shortly.
As an SAP-endorsed business solution, iMRO 4.5.2 is complementary to SAP software offerings, has been developed in accordance with SAP development guidelines, and provides additional choices and flexibility for businesses running SAP applications.
