Era Helicopters LLC and Aviall Link Systems for Instantaneous Order Management
Dallas, TX, February 12, 2012 – Era Helicopters LLC (Era) and Aviall, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Boeing Company, have deployed a web service interface that allows Era direct access to place and manage purchase orders into the Aviall suite of systems in real-time.
This integration will enable Era’s and Aviall’s systems to communicate seamlessly, allowing Era employees to manage and place orders with Aviall without ever leaving the Era system.
“These world-class web services provide an important offering available to Aviall customers at no charge,” said Edward P.
