The Ocean-ILIAS partnership presents a unique opportunity to combine two highly complementary software systems which, together, offer defense a seamless capability across the spectrum of logistics and operations. The integration of Ocean’s FlightPRO® operations management system and ILIAS’s logistics suite will deliver a seamless user experience, providing customers with a unified operations and logistics solution to maximize fleet performance and operational readiness.
Ocean Software’s CEO, Shaun Mitchell, said, “In an era where there is heightened demand on companies to be able to deliver value to their customers rapidly, new ways of working have become increasingly necessary; this includes the opportunity to partner with companies producing complementary toolsets. Teaming with ILIAS Solutions will allow both companies to bring greater efficiency to the market, bringing together two best-of-breed software tools that will benefit further from integration.”
Jean-Pierre Wildschut, Managing Director ILIAS Solutions: “Next generation aircraft require closely integrated operations and logistics efforts to optimize fleet performance. Our partnership with Ocean Software enables us to deliver a common operational and logistics picture to our customers. This assures logistics professionals are always aware of current and future operational demands and ready to take the next best action to support the mission.”
Shaun further added that, “Like ILIAS Solutions, we employ many ex-military staff, who inherently understand the problem and speak our customers’ language. We work closely with the chain of command and partner with the user communities to take an active role in developing tools that are a better fit for them and ultimately benefit the organisation as well.”
“Growing the integrated operations capability fits perfectly into the ILIAS product portfolio delivering an end-to-end solution while delivering mobile and deployed capability like IHUMS, Guide and DCM”, states Jean-Pierre.
