Benefits of a Modern MRO ERP System
Business Wire recently reported that the global aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) market is expected to grow nearly 5% to a total of $24.5 billion by 2027. The pressure to stay ahead of the growing competition is driving an increasing number of MRO companies to accelerate digital transformation and make big investments in their technology systems. Here are three reasons to choose an industry-specific MRO ERP system so you can get a jump start on the competition.

3 Ways an Industry-Specific MRO ERP System will Help Your Business Today and Tomorrow
1. Increase Profitability with Standardized Quotes
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.
For example, 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.
You can also save each Service Profile in ProMRO 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. Automate MRO Specific Processes: Aviation Example
The second benefit growing MRO companies hope for when adopting new software is the 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 includes support for commonly used aviation processes, including:
- Simplified inventory management with the PartsBase integration
- Easy downloading of the FAA aircraft database for aircraft look-up or marketing to prospective customers
- Faster parts buying and selling with ProMRO PartBase integration
- Streamlined customer equipment look-up by serial number
- Automated traceability and movement of products and articles through the aviation system
3. Easy-to-use ERP
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.
