3 Reasons to Invest in an Industry-Specific Modern MRO Solution

The global aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) market is expected to grow nearly 5% to a total of $24.5 billion by 2027, according to a recent Business Wire report. MRO companies are feeling the pressures that growing competition is driving in many areas of the business. Successful MRO companies are making big investments in their technology systems to relieve the pressures and increase profitability. Here are three reasons to choose an industry-specific MRO ERP system so you can get a jump start on the competition.

3 Ways a Modern MRO ERP Solution will Help Your Business Today and Tomorrow

1. Standardized Quotes Help Increase Profitability

Quoting projects correctly and accurately from the start is a big step towards profitability. One advantage of aviation MRO software stems from the ability to provide fast quoting with accurate costing of labor and inventory. You can easily track customer equipment and invoicing in one system which means you can quickly see where you are profitable.

Estimates are easily created within industry-specific MRO ERP solutions such as ProMRO from Clients First. ProMRO stores each quote, allowing you to easily view prior work. Modify negotiated pricing and automatically apply it to the estimate for that customer. Once the quote is accepted it will transform into either a sales order or a service job with a single press of a button.

Our ProMRO solution enables you to save Service Profiles as a template that includes time estimates, labor types, materials estimates, and miscellaneous expenses. Easily add work steps along with any testing criteria that are required. This enables a reduction in quoting or job-creating errors because the system automates this process for you. Your teams will also save time in the long run by not having to create quotes from scratch unnecessarily.

2. MRO Specific Processes Benefit from Automation

The majority of growing MRO companies need to prioritize internal efficiency. This is accomplished by reducing time-consuming and manual processes. Your teams can eliminate duplicate entry from one system to another and free up time for other tasks with an automated MRO system like ProMRO. You’ll also eliminate error-prone spreadsheets that do not tie back to a central database.

ProMRO streamlines many aspects of maintenance, production, logistics, and quality assurance in an all-in-one cloud platform. The aviation ProMRO solution, for example,  includes support for commonly used aviation processes, including:

  • PartsBase integration simplifies inventory management
  • Easily download the FAA aircraft database for aircraft look-up or marketing to prospective customers
  • Faster parts buying and selling with ProMRO PartBase integration
  • Customer equipment look-up by serial number is streamlined
  • Automated traceability and movement of products and articles through the aviation system

3. ProMRO is Integrated with Leading User-Friendly ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) 

ProMRO is embedded within Acumatica Cloud ERP and provides fast quoting, costing of labor and materials, tracking of customer equipment, serial numbers, invoicing and payables in one easy-to-use system.

Financial transactions automatically flows into the financial ledgers providing you with up-to-the-minute financials. The system supports multiple company locations, branches, and a nearly infinite sub-account structure to give you the ability to produce financials by region, product type, sale type or any other need you may have.

Easily create comparative reports, monthly reports, department reports, and any other reports by simply using the financial statement builder, or choose from more than 200 standard reports to get you started.
