Wipro said it has implemented aircraft parts and material management system for ANA to strengthen regulatory compliance and optimise inventory stock.
NEW DELHI: Wipro Technologies today said it has implemented aircraft parts and material management system for All Nippon Airways ( ANA) to strengthen regulatory compliance and optimise its inventory stock.
The company did not disclose financial details. Wipro had started its partnership with ANA in 2006. In 2009, ANA embarked on transforming its legacy material management system to support its new fleet as well its expansion into Tokyo's Haneda International Airport.
Wipro won the mandate to manage the program which is a key critical element of ANA's expansion plans.
The first phase of the project involved the addition of several new features and critical enhancements to ANA's Engineering and Purchase functions such as Engineering Order (EO), Service Bulletin (SB) and Airworthiness Directive.
This phase will strengthen ANA's regulatory compliance and Quality Control processes, improve the prediction of spare parts demand and help optimise the inventory stock, Wipro Technologies said in a statement.
"The seamless Go Live across all of our locations has reaffirmed our confidence in them as our partner of choice and further strengthens our long term symbiotic partnership," ANA SVP (IT services) Takanori Yukishige said.
ANA is the eighth largest airline in the world by revenues and the largest domestic carrier in Japan by passenger numbers.
"I am confident that we can take this partnership to greater heights and help ANA's stated goal of expansion and customer satisfaction, operational efficiency and innovation through customer-centric and efficient IT solutions," Wipro Executive Director and CEO (IT Business) T K Kurien said.
