Dwight Cox, President, Southwest Airmotive

Prior to the installation of Aerotrac back in 2014, Oakenhurst had spent the previous 18 years running a software system that was bespoke & developed ‘in-house’. Due to the business growth it was ever more apparent that the current aviation MRO software package was not fulfilling our increasing demands and needs. Several software packages were considered over a lengthy period of time, and after face to face meetings the professionalism of the Tracware team shone through and their Aerotrac package was selected to support our MRO business activities moving forward.
After nearly 4 years of running Aerotrac we can safely report that the decision and direction was the correct one. Tracware support has been thorough and responsive to our requirements, the software has enabled rapid business growth and allowed 80 % more through put without an increase in staffing, something that our previous software would not have enabled us to do.
Tracware continually demonstrates through all of their team, that their support is second to none.
