Aviation handles a wide range of aviation inventory control issues. Multi-condition, multi-location, consignment in/out, joint ventures,
subcontract, exchanges in/out. Yes, we have it. Another powerful
inventory control feature is lot masters, enabling Progressive
Aviation to track all costs associated with a group of parts including
the initial acquisition or bulk cost, overhauls, freight, subcontract
and returns. It also enables tracking of all revenue associated with a
group of parts. Streamline your operation with the built-in inventory
controls of Progressive Aviation.
Aviation provides complete inventory traceability.
Information at your fingertips. Fully comply with government
regulations. When you receive a purchase order line item, an internal
tag number is automatically assigned. This internal tag number will
stay associated with that unit forever. If you send the unit out for
repair and the returned part is different from the original part, the
internal tag number is used to link the parts. If you send the unit out
on exchange and a totally different serial number is returned, they are
linked by the tag number. A single screen inquiry provides history of
exchanges, repairs, consignments, etc. Provides linkage to a document
imaging system for electronic filing of certifications. All this as a
result of typical daily work!
Aviation provides accurate up-to-the minute clear and
concise inquiry screens.
You need information and you need it now. We
give it to you. As an example, let’s take information on a specific
physical unit. From one central screen, you can view: the complete
history of the part, your company’s lot assignment, tagged by/date/tag
number, serial number, related engine serial number, condition,
warehouse, bin, quantity, cost breakdown, hours and cycles, trace level,
origin, manufacturer’s lot, cure date, cycle date, shop report, source,
company/division/location ownership, receiving information, linked
repair order, work order, sales order, exchange, consignment, ownership
details. Drill down to view the 8130 or material certification form.
This is just one example. Need the information while on the phone with a
customer? They’ll be impressed how fast you can respond. Add a new
dimension to customer service and internal operations.
Aviation offers an unparalleled robust costing system.
Actual cost, average cost, bulk cost? We’ve
got it covered. Exchanges, consignments, rotables, borrows? We’ve got
special cost handling features for these as well. Now for the razzle
and dazzle. What about trailing charges? There are times when you sell
a unit before all costs have been posted. This occurs when the sale has
been made and you have received the units of a purchase order but not
the invoice for the purchase order or you have received the units of a
repair order but not the invoice from the repair order. Therefore, you
will only have an estimate of the cost of goods sold because units are
updated with the actual cost when the invoice (purchase or repair) has
been received and posted to accounts payable. Until then, any costs
reflected in a unit is an estimated cost. When the sale is made the
system uses this estimated cost to affect the inventory and COGS
accounts in the general ledger. When the invoice is received there
exists the possibility that the actual cost is different than the
estimated cost used in updating the general ledger. This variance must
be accounted for eventually. It is for this purpose that the
Progressive Aviation Revised Cost Subsystem was developed –
integrated with sales order, work order, repair order, purchase order,
with exchanges handled as a special case. Once and for all, truly
accurate costing. Who else is calling attention to issues like this?
Progressive Aviation has an
outside repair order module.
Do you send customer and company owned units
out for repair? If you do this through your purchase order system, you
can receive parts and pay vendors. Progressive Aviation
incorporates a Repair Order Module that goes far beyond this
functionality for processing work to outside vendors. With this module,
your company can be more fully streamlined by automating typically
manual functions and maintaining complete cost and traceability
records. This is a very robust module! Some of the highlights
include: for company owned units, the system will automatically
maintain a complete history of the part, including the repair vendor,
conditions and costing. Repair costs can be expensed (fully or
partially) or be included in the cost of the unit. There is special
functionality for teardowns and assemblies and cost allocation. For
consignment property, we take repair costs into consideration when
calculating amount due to the consignor. We also track sub-component
units shipped to the vendor to be used in the repair of the unit. Repair
and purchase vendors approvals are differentiated and the repair vendor
capabilities provide complete history by part and vendor, linked to
subtasks. And there is more…. The difference is in the depth of
our Progressive Aviation subcontract solution.
Aviation proves that not all accounting systems are equal.
We’re not afraid to discuss the details of our
accounting solutions because we have so much to offer. It’s easy for
the competition to say an accounts receivable system is an accounts
receivable system. We disagree! All accounts receivable modules will
produce an invoice, statement and aged trial balance. But how about
some of these features that will really help you maximize revenue,
streamline processing and improve customer relations? A collections
sub-system for complete follow up notes and dates with on-screen
inquiries to answer customer questions immediately. The ability to
print an historical invoice just as the customer originally saw it; then
automatically fax or e-mail to the customer. Multiple level credit
checking. Assignment of credit managers to specific customers. Free
text notes or standard text on forms; designated as “internal” to show
on your own company documents or “external” to show on customer
documents. Multi-division? No problem. Multi-level commissions based
on gross profit or revenue; paid upon cash receipt or invoice. Customer
profiles for marketing and sales analysis; elaborate sorting of
multi-level user-definable validated fields. For example, track what
aircraft are in the customer’s fleet. The level of integration from
quote, sales order through to accounts receivable, including inventory
and general ledger. Contras easily handled where you owe an accounts
payable and the vendor owes you an accounts receivable; system handles
the credits and debit memo automatically. We could go on and on….and
this is just in the accounts receivable module! Ask us to go on about
accounts payable, general ledger. Yes, most definitely,
there is a difference.
Aviation has the fundamental structure a mid-to-large organization
should not be without.
multi-currency, full audit
trails and comprehensive security down to the field level. You simply can’t outgrow it. No sales or
maintenance organization is too large. No matter how many workstations
you need, all the same principles apply – you still need a system that
handles in depth the complex issues of an aviation organization. Audit
trails and security that will satisfy your auditors. Once you’ve lived
with it and seen it in action…nothing less will do.
