eWork is a secure app-based solution developed by ADSoftware and designed to provide complete visibility, detailed monitoring and analysis of the airworthiness, engineering, logistics, tooling and cost management aspects of line and base maintenance.   It significantly reduces the potential for unexpected delays and unbudgeted costs that are typically incurred through the lags in conventional communications between aircraft operators, maintenance facilities and parts depots.


The app is designed to support the maintenance of aircraft anywhere in the world.  It is specifically intended as an affordable tool for small and medium-size airlines, corporate, VIP, General Aviation, para-public and military fixed wing aircraft and helicopter operators as well as third party aircraft maintenance and repair organisations.  On average eWork costs a tenth of more complex and cumbersome IT tools.

Regional aircraft manufacturer, ATR, has implemented eWork along with other ADSoftware modules in its airworthiness management unit and its maintenance and repair organisation (MRO).  ATR’s MRO performs about 15 aircraft maintenance and service checks every year.

“Feedback we have received from ATR is that it has notably shortened maintenance tasks and improved productivity in the first year of use. For commercial aircraft operators this represents a significant saving in labour costs and ensures aircraft are returned to the line and generating revenue again much sooner.   It provides tactical advantages for military operators by improving operational mission-readiness,” explained ADSoftware CEO, Fred Ulrich.


ATR’s decision to use eWork has been a game-changer for ADSoftware.  “ATR recognised the value and has proved the robustness, functionality and benefits of the solution.  As a result, we now have a growing customer base and strong order book,” he added.
