Nov. 30, 2007, Ottawa, Ont. – Mxi Technologies announced this week that the Maintenix®
system has successfully gone live providing in-service data management
of all three engine variants (-A1, -A5 and –D5) within the
International Aero Engines (IAE) V2500 fleet. The Maintenix product is
an intelligent, integrated software solution that will provide IAE with
meaningful improvements to the labor productivity of their Field
Service Representatives. The software was delivered on time, enabling
IAE field service representatives to record engine reliability data,
and was implemented within budget.

The workflow-based design
of Maintenix will streamline the process of compiling engine data,
ensuring continued data integrity. The addition of accurate near
real-time, fleet-wide reporting and analysis of the V2500 fleet will
allow the management team to not only view the current condition of
every individual engine at any time, from any location in the world,
but also assess the success of the program as a whole. These
enhancements to productivity will significantly reduce the time spent
by Field Service Representatives entering data and create added value
through increased time spent with customers.

"IAE selected the
Maintenix product based on its proven aftermarket success in managing
the in-service portion of the life-cycle of aviation assets. Through
this implementation, our expectations have been met", said Greg
Gernhardt, IAE Vice President of Operations and Customer Programs. "The
end-user receptivity to the software has been positive. We attribute
this to Mxi's in-depth knowledge of airlines Maintenance and
Engineering operations and the continuous collaboration between the Mxi
and IAE teams throughout the project".

"To not only be
selected, but also so positively received by a leader within the OEM
engine services aftermarket shows that the Maintenix product is an
ideal choice of Maintenance & Engineering software for this
market," said Les Hine, President of Mxi. "We are looking forward to
further expanding our presence in this market."
