Moreover, ExecuJet MRO Services, owned by Dassault, is rolling out Ideagen software applications to standardize quality, safety, risk and training processes across its sites globally.
Ideagen’s Q-Pulse, Q-Pulse Risk and Academy software will play a central part in ExecuJet MRO Services’ digital transformation program as it looks to grow the business following its recent acquisition by Dassault Aviation.
Dassault Aviation Company acquired ExecuJet MRO Services in March 2019, and took ownership of the company’s MRO facilities from Luxaviation. The acquisition strengthened the French airframer’s global support footprint with the addition of ExecuJet’s bases across the world, located in Africa, Asia, Australasia, Europe and the Middle East.
Q-Pulse, Q-Pulse Risk and Academy will now be rolled into each site, with the company’s compliance team working with Q-Pulse and Q-Pulse Risk while its technical staff focus on Academy. The project may also see ExecuJet adopt Ideagen’sPleaseReview software – its document review, redaction and co-authoring product – in the future.
