Aircraft maintenance firm rolls out biometric eSignature system


Global aircraft maintenance company Magnetic MRO has developed a fingerprint-based digital signing system to make its “paperwork” more efficient by fully digitizing the process of signing off on maintenance work orders.

The company must process over a thousand documents for each aircraft it services, so Magnetic MRO’s IT and maintenance teams collaborated to create a system in less than a year in which a fingerprint scan is used to replace the printing and singing step, which then allows the documents to be automatically shared and archived digitally, without re-digitizing (scanning) or manually delivering them. The solution increases the speed of maintenance jobs, the company says.

“Paper documents made their job back in those days when there was no other reliable alternative for keeping track of aircraft maintenance works. But today, highly secure digital storage systems provide an unprecedented level of reliability and security against manipulations or unauthorized edits,” comments Magnetic MRO COO Jan Kotka. “With this in mind, we’ve made yet another important step towards a paperless environment by digitalizing aircraft maintenance work orders and securing them with fingerprint signatures. The new system has already received an approval from Estonian CAA.”

“Biometric eSignature and digital storage bring document management to a new level of transparency and security,” shares Magnetic MRO Base Maintenance Director Sergei Shkolnik. “Further on, the new system eliminates an unnecessary and time-consuming process of delivering work orders from the engineering department to maintenance shops and vice versa. What is particularly delighting, our clients will also benefit from the system, since all aircraft-related documents will now be available even faster.”

Other companies innovating in the electronic signature space include ZorroSign, which recently added support for advanced mobile biometrics to its blockchain-based document signing app.
