South Carolina-based Champion Aerospace has engaged KeyMark Inc., an award-winning document management solution provider, to engineer and implement an electronic document management and workflow solution to help Champion Aerospace gain greater efficiencies and improve contract review processes.
Champion Aerospace is a manufacturer of aviation products for turbine and piston engines, headquartered in Liberty, South Carolina. KeyMark, a company with expertise within the aerospace industry, will assist Champion Aerospace in enabling an advanced electronic workflow system for Champion’s contract review process.
“Our contract review process is inefficient,” said Derek Chastain, materials manager at Champion Aerospace. “We needed to find a way to streamline and expedite our process and reduce the amount of time it took to complete a review. Once the new solution is in place, our contract forms and documents will be electronically routed for approvals and signatures. Requests for quotes, purchase orders and repair orders will be automatically issued and routed as well, saving us hours of manual time. We anticipate this initiative will help us reduce costs, increase efficiencies and improve customer service.”
“Champion Aerospace’s approach to improving its critical contract review process through technology is very strategic,” said Victoria Newman, vice president of sales and marketing at KeyMark. To help Champion Aerospace meet its business goals, KeyMark will implement the OnBase enterprise content management solution. As an authorized OnBase solution provider, KeyMark has helped deploy OnBase and provide ongoing support to organizations in the aerospace and other industries. “With an electronic workflow system, Champion will have a real-time view on where documents are at all times,” said Newman. “We’ve found that with workflow, contracts get ‘lost’ less, approval processes are faster and manual errors are decreased. Workflow really helps with time-consuming business processes that were previously completed manually such as sending purchase orders and other forms.”
