Mobile app enhances efficiency

HAECO Hong Kong has recently introduced a mobile application – ULTRAMAIN® Mobile Mechanic™ – for use in its Light Maintenance operations at Hong Kong International Airport.


To improve operational efficiency in an environmental-friendly manner, HAECO Hong Kong collaborated with Ultramain Systems, Inc., an international asset management and logistics software service provider, to enhance ULTRAMAIN’s Mobile Mechanic to meet HAECO’s paperless needs. Cathay Pacific Airways provided support during the project and the airline has become the launch customer of HAECO’s implementation of Mobile Mechanic – making use of the system and application.


This application allows technical personnel to access electronic task cards, receive job assignments, create non-routine task cards as well as sign off task cards electronically through mobile devices. The airline customer can now have real-time monitoring of job status.


HAECO Hong Kong provides light maintenance services to Cathay Pacific’s Boeing 777-300 fleet at its hangar facilities. With HAECO Mobile Mechanic, engineers, technical personnel and relevant parties can plan ahead more effectively. This application further enhances accuracy in maintenance work and increases productivity.


The HAECO Hong Kong Light Maintenance team handles over 1,000 light maintenance checks (planned maintenance inputs) annually for Cathay Pacific. The implementation of the Mobile Mechanic will help save 640,000 sheets of paper per year. Both parties plan to extend the application to cover Cathay Pacific’s Airbus A330 fleet in the first half of 2018.
