ARINC Completes Implementation of Eftia’s Master.Scribe Suite

Ottawa, Canada (PRWEB) April 15, 2005

Eftia, a global provider of operations management software solutions designed to meet the business automation needs of communications service providers and large enterprises, today announced that ARINC, an Annapolis, Maryland based transportation, communications and systems engineering firm, has completed the phased implementation of Eftia’s Master.Scribe Suite.

ARINC started their implementation with the Master.Scribe Inventory Module, which allowed them to eliminate several disparate applications and databases. “We now have one authoritative database of record for all of our circuits and assets” says Jerry Owens, Director of Infrastructure Support, “We can now quickly obtain and report on all necessary information to manage our inventory, such as circuits and equipment in service, actual in-service dates, disconnects, and even depreciation schedules if we choose”.

ARINC then followed with the implementation of the MasterScribe Service Order Module, which allowed them to combine all of their provisioning processes into a series of crisp workflows, all managed within the OSS Suite. “ No more swivel-chair data entry, faxes, or emails” says Mike Martelli, ARINC’s Project Manager for Operations. All aspects of the provisioning process are managed within the Master.Scribe Suite with activity assignments automatically controlled and exceptions reported when a service jeopardy exists”.

Just recently, the Master.Scribe Trouble Management module was rolled out to complete the project. “This was a smooth rollout”, remarked Owens, “The fact that the modules are already tightly integrated eliminated a lot of worry and minimized testing”. “Our Operation’s Team is seeing a great improvement in the day-to-day operation with complete access to all customer and network information, and a reduction in the amount of tickets opened due to the tight parent-child data relationships within the system” Overall, it’s been a very positive product implementation and the Eftia team has been very dedicated and responsive.

“The next steps will be to promote the capabilities of the Master.Scribe Suite into other verticals at ARINC”, says Joey Leaskey, Eftia Director of Global Sales. “That process has already begun and it will continue to add to the solid ROI model being realized for this OSS application”.

Canadian Amateur Wrestling Association Adopts Crosstrainer Personal Fitness Management Software for Canada Wide Implementation in High Performance Programs.

Partnership Ideal Match to Contribute to Increased Excellence of Canadian National Wrestling Team.

OTTAWA, CANADA, December 16, 2002 – Today the Canadian Amateur Wrestling Association (CAWA) and Innovative Logic jointly announce a 2 year agreement to implement Crosstrainer Personal Fitness Management software throughout the entire wrestling organization. Multi user licenses of Crosstrainer will be provided to each of the thirteen national training centers and two high performance clubs that train national wrestlers. Also the National Program Director, National Office and several National Team athletes will receive Crosstrainer Personal Fitness Management software.

“We were very impressed with several features of the software right from the start,” said Greg Mathieu, Executive Director of the CAWA. “Our sport medicine and science team will be able to use the Wellness tracking and, of course, the Weigh-in profile for a weight based sport is very useful.”

Crosstrainer is a Canadian fitness and nutrition software product that is best known for its unique ability to set and track goals in combination with an athlete’s personal fitness and nutrition. The partnership will provide a platform to implement several upcoming features that are specifically of interest to organizations that would like to enhance their athlete excellence through increasing coach-to-athlete and coach-to-coach communication. Upcoming development will enable coaches to design training plans and share them with their athletes and each other. In this way National Coaches can design a training plan and an event schedule and share it with the athletes nationwide ensuring maximum efficiency and accuracy.

“We are very proud to have an organization as well respected as the Canadian Amateur Wrestling Association as the first Canadian Sport Association to incorporate Crosstrainer,” says Marco Smits Director of Sales and Marketing of Innovative Logic. “Canadian wrestlers have been very successful over the last few years and we are excited to be part of the program and to contribute to increasing excellence of all wrestlers of the association”.

CAWA and Innovative Logic started their talks early this summer and have been working closely together to finalize the details of the partnership. Talks between other National Sport Organizations and Innovative Logic are also underway.

“We have been looking for an integrated program for quite some time. There is really nothing out there that compares,” added Mathieu. “After careful review we made our choice. There is a real demand, and Crosstrainer has risen to the challenge to fill that hole in the market and to support the needs of our sport organization. National sport bodies should find the Crosstrainer software a significant step up from legacy systems.”

“Innovative Logic looks forward to supporting Canada’s successful wrestling program in this critical two year period leading to the 2004 Olympic Games.” says Smits. “It is a great reward to help athletes pursuing and realizing podium performances at international competitions especially the Olympic Games”
