Headquartered in Miramar, Florida with offices around the world, United Aerospace Corporation (UAC) is involved in all areas of aviation servicing. It services some of the largest shipping companies and has an exclusive service contract with FedEx. UAC’s main challenge was coordinating its internal system with specific customer demands. UAC had been using JD Edwards World ERP system, running on an AS/400 mainframe.
Some of UAC’s customers requested as many as 8 copies of a document, but only one copy needed to be stored in eCabinet. The information and indexes had to be perfect on eCabinet in order to retrieve the critical information easily from any browser. An aircraft can be serviced from any location around the world, so the service history documents had to be readily available and easy to follow and understand.
Solutions Implemented By The United Aerospace Corporation

Reform was able to make a seamless connection between UAC’s JD Edwards system, eCabinet, and its networked printers. The solution was also able to enhance the look of UAC’s documents, replacing its existing pre-printed forms.
Reform's eCabinet connector can do the following:
UAC’s system administrator stated, “We have been trying for over one year to seamlessly connect our systems together and Reform did it in less than an hour.” “Reform gave us all the flexibly we needed to manage and store our critical information without advanced training or high installation costs.”
