GOLDesp for Kuwait Air Force
Tapestry Solutions will work with Kay and Associates to modernise maintenance processes for the Kuwait Air Force (KAF) under a contract modification from the US Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR).
The KAF's maintenance management infrastructure will be automated and standardised with the implementation of GOLDesp Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) software.
The software has already been in use for the KAF's F/A-18 fleet under the original contract awarded from NAVAIR in June 2011.
GOLDesp provides automated workflow tools to manage MRO for military and commercial customers. It enables maintenance crews to accurately track and manage inventory through the supply chain, improving total asset visibility of movements and repairs. Users can quickly schedule and record maintenance actions; evaluate maintainability and reliability; and control and update configurations – right down to a component's part and serial number.
Robin Wright, president and CEO, Tapestry Solutions, said: 'The implementation of our enterprise-level software will significantly reduce operational costs for the KAF, while improving their productivity and equipment availability.
'Receiving this contract is a significant milestone for our company as it demonstrates the KAF's confidence in our software and services.'
