Trax’s eContent Control Offers Access to Aircraft Records

TRAX says its eContent Control is a web application designed to facilitate easy access to aircraft records. The app is integrated with the TRAX core maintenance information system to streamline data retrieval and reporting by providing accurate and real-time records. The company says it is “a robust tool for aircraft records management, airworthiness verification, and aircraft sales.”

eContent has high-volume, accurate Optical Character Recognition (OCR) solutions that transform massive volumes of unstructured and image-based documents into fully searchable PDF and PDF/A assets, the company says. The eContent technical records solution allows a company to manage a single aircraft or entire fleet using the compliance and maintenance data from the TRAX system of record.

Functionality will allow for views of logbook records, Task Cards, compliance data, parts inventory, transaction history, back-to-birth traceability,and associated certifications. Users can search for specific airworthiness directives, service bulletins, and certificates of release to service for any aircraft in the fleet within seconds. In addition, the app will provide evidence of records for auditing purposes with the dirty finger print or digital signature PDF records as certified copies. Expansion or limitation of permissions to view records can be configured for users within or outside an organization.

Trax says eContent Control app will facilitate the rapid and successful return of leased aircraft, engines, APUs, and landing gears. Aircraft records have been pinpointed as the most challenging element of the redelivery process. eContent potentially replaces the need for outsourced or in-house dedicated redelivery teams by allowing existing technical records teams to prepare a lease return package using real-time data quickly and easily. The cost of human errors and additional workload are reduced due eContent Controle Mobility App to the automation and better visibility of records exceptions via the portal.

Reporting is available in multiple formats such as export to Excel or using the Spec 2500 electronic data exchange standards. Lessors can do early audits which will allow for advanced planning of any required additional maintenance and part replacements. A reduction in costs for aircraft records storage will be realized. TRAX customer Jazz Aviation “expects to see a 60% to 80% savings on the whole process and that works out to about $100,000 per aircraft,” according to John Hensel, manager of Business Services Portfolio.
