Thousands of aviation businesses still rely on legacy enterprise resource planning (ERP) programs that were designed over two decades ago, back when fax machines and pagers were in their prime. These legacy ERP programs often carry a hefty price tag, require expensive, on-premises computer hardware for hosting, and demand the attention of a paid professional for even the simplest of modifications (e.g. adding custom fields, forms, reports, or dashboards).
One of the challenges that companies face when selecting new ERP software is the migration of their data. Ambry Hill — a specialist in software solutions for aviation operators, repair stations, parts traders, and OEMs — has taken a groundbreaking approach to this age-old problem. Traditionally, the process of switching from one ERP system to another includes extracting data from the old system and importing it into the new system. This is often very expensive and time-consuming and rarely produces good results.
Ambry Hill offers an alternative to this approach by simply connecting into the old dataset and integrating that information right into the screens of Vista Suite so that it appears to be part of the system. “Of course, we offer the traditional data migration if a customer chooses this, but our technology offers a very flexible and low-cost alternative for rapid deployment of our software,” said Paul Stewart, president of Ambry Hill, “and the beauty of this approach is the data displays can be changed on demand to accommodate the user’s changing needs.”
Vista Suite is a modern, full ERP software as a service (SaaS) solution that is affordable for all business sizes. A mission-critical SaaS product, Vista Suite ERP is built on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform and provides users around the world with best-in-class security and reliability.
Cole Davisson, Ambry Hill VP of Software Innovation, commented, “We built our software for the current, modern age. The post-Covid world will see more workforces that are mobile, agile and highly productive.” Ambry Hill comprises aviation industry veterans that know the detailed job functions of every user of their software.
Meticulous effort went into the design and functional flow of the user interface, including the mobile applications. “We are excited to bring to market a rich suite of features that include inventory management, RFQ and quote automation, order processing, logistics, invoicing, analytics dashboard, custom reporting, and more,” said Richard Frisk, VP of Sales.
“The team at Ambry Hill has elevated the game and is addressing the pain points that users have been asking for, for years. Our mission is to provide the aviation aftermarket industry with affordable, easy-to-use software that is mobile and very fast to adopt,” added Neil Prodger, director of European Sales. “Even some of the newer systems on the market are not doing the things we are.”
Today’s businesses, with their agile and mobile workforces, demand more thoughtful and comprehensive software, which is what Ambry Hill aims to provide well into the future. “We are just getting started. Just wait and see the kind of innovation we will bring to the market,” said Stewart.
