In the aviation aftermarket, handling exchange invoice credits and nonstandard cost allocations can be a perplexing challenge. Allocating costs towards cores, adjusting values between cores and sold units, and introducing repairs or other fees can be done efficiently in Vista-Suite Enterprise.

Traditional aviation software systems often hit a dead end when faced with the nuanced requirements of unique transactions. This gap significantly hampers efficiency and operational flow. However, Vista-Suite Enterprise stands out by seamlessly managing the intricacies of exchange invoice credits, from multi-step cost allocations – to ensuring inventory accuracy.

The Gap in Traditional Systems

Aviation sales grappling with finding the best MRO software.

Going beyond the basic sell-and-exchange model reveals a multitude of scenarios that can leave aviation parts traders grappling for solutions.

1. What if a customer’s unit is out on repair and additional fees exceed the original agreement? Can your current system accurately represent the core cost against the inventory and invoice?

2. What if a customer submits a unit for evaluation and decides to apply the credit value towards an invoice? Can your current system seamlessly move the money from the core received to the unit sold?

3. What if you received a customer’s core and sent it out for repair, but the customer is dissatisfied with the serviceable unit you sent them as part of the exchange? Instead of returning everything, they want credit towards another unit. Does your current system seamlessly handle receiving the unit they were dissatisfied with, applying credit towards another unit, allocating the repair costs to the unit on repair, and receiving the repaired unit as inventory with accurate core costs in alignment with the entire transaction history?

Showing what using old aviation MRO software might be like.

Other aviation aftermarket software systems cannot accommodate the required cost allocations in complex use cases. Most Aviation Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems follow a strict “happy path” scenario tailored for straightforward transactions. These systems falter when confronted with exceptions, lacking the flexibility to adapt to anything outside the norm. 

The financial implications of nonstandard exchange scenarios, which include adjusting cost, inventory, and the alignment of other transaction details, cause operational complexities often overlooked by standard software systems. 

Real problems arise when handling these nonstandard transactions. Adjusting the cost of goods and inventory levels while ensuring accurate cost allocations becomes a monumental task, often riddled with manual interventions and prone to errors.

These limitations slow down operational processes and affect business profitability and agility. The inability to efficiently manage complex scenarios, such as various nonstandard exchange invoice credits, can become a significant bottleneck.

However, Vista-Suite Enterprise can accommodate all the transaction adjustments and movement of cost allocations without canceling sales or duplicating records.

What are exchange invoice credits in the aviation parts aftermarket?

Exchange invoice credits occur when a customer returns a part (core) and is entitled to a partial credit towards a past or future purchase. This process involves adjusting inventory and financial records to reflect the transaction accurately.

Why do other Aviation ERP software systems struggle to handle exchange invoice credits and nonstandard exchange scenarios?

Traditional aviation ERP and MRO systems are usually designed for straightforward buy-and-sell transactions. They can lack the flexibility to manage the complexities of exchange invoice credits and nonstandard exchange scenarios, such as complex allocation of inventory costs and ensuring accurate transaction reconciliation when a core is returned under unique circumstances.

How does Vista-Suite Enterprise address the issues with nonstandard aircraft parts exchange scenarios and invoice credit involved?

Vista-Suite Enterprise streamlines the management of exchange invoice credits by enabling businesses to easily adjust inventory costs, reconcile transaction financial details, and manage the return of cores in unique use cases. Thus, it ensures financial accuracy and improves operational efficiency.
