The aviation company, CAA, faced challenges with their legacy system that hindered its ability to manage aircraft operations as the business grew. In order to overcome these challenges, CAA hired a KoreCent to provide consultation and implement a scalable ERP system. The goal was to ensure that the system could accommodate the company's growth.
CAA also faced difficulties in managing their in-house aircraft maintenance and inventory due to the varied make of aircraft in their fleet. These complexities made it challenging to plan, manage, and control operational costs while maintaining transparency and visibility for management to drive profits upwards.
KoreCent modified the ERPnext system to match the needs of business for Canada Aviation Academy.
Customized the ERPNext system, migrated legacy data, and standardized IT business workflows. KoreCent was mainly responsible for process documentation, process mapping, and filling the gaps with customization to the system according to customers’ requirements. The ERPNext system was successfully delivered, which allowed the academy to better control its costs, identify and measure KPIs, and minimize aircraft downtimes.
How was ERPNext deployed?
The Director Business Solution was the main point of contact for everything related to the project, but there were about 4 other IT specialists working in the background. The implementation process went smoothly, with one module at a time beginning with Accounts, followed by Buying, Selling, Projects and CRM modules respectively.
CAA stopped using legacy systems for their business processes and has been using ERPNext for its day-to-day tasks.
With the use of customized erpnext system Canada Aviation management is successful in achieving
1. Cost Control

5. Effective management of training
