Realease Date March, 2009
AAR is a leading provider of diverse products and services to the worldwide commercial aviation and government/defense industries. Headquartered in Wood Dale, Illinois, a suburb near Chicago O’Hare International Airport, AAR employs more than 6,000 people at more than 60 locations in 13 countries. Appworks was contracted by AAR to build a mobile productivity tracking and reporting tool to be used in AAR’s landing gear manufacturing facilities. Instead of traditional paper reports showing facility production, Appworks created a iPad and iPhone application which integrated with AAR’s existing facility management software. The mobile applications allowed management to track every aspect of facility production in real time, across multiple locations. The result was instant increases in production levels due to easier access to real time data.
