WinAir Feature Reviews

Darcy Garrett

WinAirWeb 6.0

2013-01-16

Av-Base Systems is definitely moving in the right direction with it's web development. i am very much looking forward to having the inventory management side of the software moved to the web environment.

Pros

System follows a logical sequence for setting up, installing and tracking aircraft maintenance activities and inventory. As the product administrator and the Maintenance Planner, the upgrade to 6.0 has saved me months of work - literally.

Cons

Inventory portion of the web product is not yet deployed.

I give 23 stars.. the next 2 stars are room for improvement

Pros

Using this product for more than 5 years, starting with Version 5 up to version 6.1.3 - It's a web version - It's friendly user, the format lay-out is easy to learn and use, and streamlines with the work flow - Data management is pretty much integrated and easy to retrieve.

Cons

- Reporting is still not adequate enough for example when we want to know all the serialized component installed in the aircraft (Aircraft inventory), Major Assembly report

First rate product and service

2017-01-04

We utilize WinAir Management Software (Inventory, Maintenance, Finance) and find it easy to use.

Pros

The way the different modules work together.

Cons

There could be more reports. The reports available are all great, but there could stand to be a few more.

Recommendations to others considering WinAir

It would be nice if we were able to customize a report without having to burden Win Air with a request.

WinAir Express user comments

2012-02-22

I would recommend WinAir Express for tracking inventory, maintaining a vendor database, and forecasting maintenance.

Pros

WinAir Express meets our needs with Inventory and Maintenance Tracking.

Cons

The learning curve is pretty big due to many of the screens look similar to each other and there are many tabs and buttons that take some getting used to. It helps to have someone dedicated to the program to get the most out of it.

Useful software to meet the needs of the small to medium size operator

2012-03-24

I would recommend WinAIr (and actively discuss with prospective purchasers) due to it's ease of use, functionality, ability to grow with the Company and its cost effectiveness.

Pros

Ability to add functionality through modules and grow with licences is a big plus (although cost of some of these is a concern).

Cons

Assembly Management and Reporting is a major negative however version 6 is suppose to solve these issues (or at least most of them).

Response from AV-Base Systems


As of the date of this review (Q1 2012) this customer is on the verge of upgrading to the latest version. As they have been a long time customer, and due to the advancements made in the latest version in terms of data integrity, business rules, work flow, etc., there are certain data elements that need to be added and others that need to be organized in order to accommodate the upgrade and give them the maximum benefits that the new version has to offer. There have also been significant advances to the reporting structure in recent releases that cover off any perceived gaps in this respect in the past. New customers will not experience this situation as they will be provided the latest version at the onset.

In terms of the Australasia support, we currently do have 24/7 support available to all customers that require it. In order to better support our Australasia customer and keep their costs at a minimum, we have regularly scheduled onsite training in this region and others.

AvBase Systems

2012-02-29

The changing dynamic of aviation requires constant update, and AvBase Systems have developed a great Incident Reporting tool and excellant Update feature to push updates to the end user.

Pros

Easy to learn, with rock solid performance and program reliability.

Cons

Menu driven reporting features are not as flexible as we like, and output to formats other than paper, screen, or PDF are cumbersome.

Used WinAir for years - love the day-to-day ease of use and integration of Inventory & Maintenance

2016-01-05

Fabulous Support - both Tech and Sales Day-to-day use is easy and to the point The system often incorporates a 'common sense' approach that is methodical - ie it mimics how things occur on practical terms, both in the maintenance and stores departments Reports are well received by Maintenance, Stores people and Accounting departments alike Linking is nice for new and/or inexperienced users If I am being completely honest, I do have one item on my wish list (sorry!!).
