Lundin Software team up with Airbus Helicopters to exchange maintenance data

Lundin Software from the Faroe Islands has signed a partnership agreement with Airbus Helicopters that will enable their maintenance information systems (MIS) to be connected to Airbus, facilitating the two-way exchange of maintenance and aircraft data from Airbus to the customer’s MIS.

The software company, which was founded in the small village of Skála in 2002, provides business software solutions designed to sharpen business and information flows and is only one of six companies worldwide that has been approved by Airbus. The new deal with Airbus means it will be easier for Lundin’s customers to incorporate their MIS into their helicopters, which is many cases are from Airbus.

Jørleif Bech, the company’s founder, is delighted with the partnership and the recognition.

“The deal makes everything much easier and quicker for our customers,” says Jørleif. “Simply put, we now have a better product.”

By connecting with Airbus systems, MRO software providers can more quickly upload important rotorcraft data and technical documentation into their MIS, especially when a new helicopter is put into operation. Helicopter operators as a result benefit from knowing that their maintenance software contains the most up-to-date information about their aircraft.

The recognition from Airbus will make it easier for Jørleif to sell his system in a fiercely competitive software market.

“We expect that the deal will mean that potential customers will more likely consider us,” says Jørleif.

Lundin’s MIS, called Gannet, is developed in cooperation with the national airline of the Faroe Islands, Atlantic Airways.

“None of this would have been possible without the access to the experience and knowledge of Atlantic Airways’ technical department,” says Jørleif.

Lundin Software employs ten people and has 43 customers in 13 different countries.
