IFS, the global enterprise applications company, has launched its first mobile application for the Aerospace & Defense (A&D) market. The IFS Flight Log mobile app is designed to address the challenges faced by A&D organizations by enabling key operational data relating to flight, crew, and vehicle to be captured in real-time on smartphones, and to integrate directly with the new IFS Applications 8-based asset management solutions. It is part of the IFS Touch App series, and is currently available on Microsoft and Android mobile phones and is privately hosted to reflect the requirements of the A&D Industry. It enables key operational data to be recorded on smartphones and then relayed back in real-time into the IFS Applications 8 ERP system. It eliminates the need for paper records and lengthy keying-in processes by providing a full flight log of all events pertaining to any vehicle during operations, including flight details, disruptions, faults, crew associated with the flight, and pre- or post-flight inspections. The data is instantly integrated into IFS Applications 8 to enhance the planning, delivery, and monitoring of ongoing maintenance activities.
