The immense complexity of engine and aircraft component services at STS Component Solutions comprises background processes for sourcing, teardown, disposition, cost, logistics, sales, support and detailed regulatory data management for global engine and airframe parts distribution services. To further streamline operations, STS wanted to move from using disparate systems for accounting and ERP and into a modern solution that would integrate business processes across their division to become more efficient and responsive to their customer needs.
Designed specifically for aviation aftermarket services, STS selected Component Control’s Quantum MRO & Logistics software to meet its accounting, ERP and Lot Costing integration needs and allow for expansion over time to encompass more integrated capabilities. With the Quantum accounting module, compliance, auditability and quality control requirements are incorporated into simplified processes to better manager customer accounts, inventory and sales. The Lot Costing module consolidates management of acquisition of inventory lots, the purchase, teardown and sale of engine and airframe components and selling inventory consignments. To expedite online parts sales, STS uses Quantum’s Parts Search App to list updated inventory and receive RFQs through their website in real-time, 24/7.
“A significant benefit of Quantum is found when business processes are structured around the Quantum database, giving us a business intelligence environment for maximizing our understanding of operational data while continuously optimizing productivity,” said Nick Chambers, Vice President of Operations at STS Component Solutions.
