African Flag Carrier Becomes Seabury Solutions’ Fourth Africa-based Airline Customer for the Industry-Leading Alkym Software for Aircraft Maintenance
Shannon, Ireland – August 8, 2017 – Seabury Solutions, a subsidiary of Seabury Capital LLC and the market leader in providing Information Technology solutions for the aviation industry, announced today that Africa-based Air Zimbabwe had signed contracts for Alkym® Management and Control System for Aircraft Maintenance, becoming the fourth Africa-based flag carrier to implement the company’s industry-leading Alkym solution. With a complete solution to cater for CAMO and MRO service integrated with Logistics, Alkym was able to meet the high demands required from the selection process.
“This first half of 2017 has demonstrated that Alkym continues to lead the industry in providing the top-of-the-market functionality across the aviation world,” said Seabury Solutions Senior Vice President John Barry. “While we are currently deploying Alkym in Europe, South America and the Caribbean, once again Africa will see our teams on site, proving time and again that cost effective solutions are required but must never compromise on functionality.”
Air Zimbabwe has opted for 13 of 18 of the modules provided within Alkym. The configuration of the system and training of the personnel are currently under way, with system implementation set to begin with a two-week workshop to map out the process for the most effective deployment of the solution to meet Air Zimbabwe’s needs.
Captain Ripton Muzenda, Air Zimbabwe CEO, under whose leadership the airline is expected to embark on an ambitious journey to reclaim its place in the skies, commented: “The control of our technical operations is the foundation of the building blocks we are putting in place. We want to bring Air Zimbabwe back to its glory days. Working with an industry leader in Seabury Solutions that transformation can begin. The software solution is proven and the people behind it understand the complexity of our operation.”
