Embraer and Ocean Explorer agree terms for use of Beacon

Embraer and fellow Brazilian company Ocean Explorer have put pen to paper on the latter’s use of Beacon, Embraer’s “maintenance coordination digital platform”.

Ocean Explorer is to be the first helicopter operator to use Beacon, a system Embraer said helps “bring contextual communication between its maintenance teams and external partners, simplify flows and improve maintenance operations”.

“Wherever there is room to facilitate interactions among different maintenance players, to leverage contextual communication around maintenance events, and to make the maintenance workflows easier, there is space for Beacon,” said Marco Cesarino, head of Beacon.

“With Beacon, our team can communicate with maintenance centres, engine maintenance representatives, and other external partners in real-time without the trouble of searching for information on emails and phone calls. We need to make sure the helicopter is always available, so keeping information safe and accessible to everyone involved is critical”, said Daniel Braz, general manager at Ocean Explorer do Brasil.
