Irish software company Arconics has announced that 22 jobs are to be created following the signing of a 10-year deal with Qatar Airways to provide its document management system to the major airline.
The Arconics document management system (DMS) in question, AeroDocs, will now be used by Qatar Airways to allow them to manage their aircraft manuals and operational documentation on board the aircraft using an iPad. The deal is believed to be worth in the region of US$6.7m to Arconics.
The 22 jobs to be created to be highly-skilled roles in:
- Software development
- Operations management
Arconics will provide the AeroDocs software to all group companies including Qatar Airways, Qatar Cargo, Qatar Executive, and Qatar Amiri Flight. The AeroDocs software is compatible with both Airbus and Boeing aircraft models, two of the dominant aircraft manufacturers providing aircraft to the world’s airlines.
The addition of XML functionality, Arconics says, ensures that pilots get to use powerful features including advanced search and storage of annotations and highlights. “We have been very lucky finding top talent, as we use cutting edge mobile and satellite technology and face the complex challenges that attract top engineers,” said Arconics’ CEO, Niall O’Sullivan.
“Arconics is a good example of an Irish company that’s a world leader in a highly competitive global software market, generating jobs and adding substantial export sales to Ireland’s balance of payments.”
Arconics has headquarters in Dublin and Sydney. Located here in Dublin city centre, beside Silicon Docks, Trinity College, Merrion Square, Government Buildings and quality transport hubs, Arconics develop mobile apps and enterprise software for airlines.
