“Present on the Aerospace & Defense market for over 10 years with many missions carried out around the issues of cycle time reduction of supply and production, our organization has elected to implement a strategic partnership with iBase-t. This alliance will effectively meet the challenges of our clients in the areas of Manufacturing, MRO and Quality,” said Yann Begue Director of the Consulting Branch of Gfi Group.
iBase-t’s flagship product, Solumina, is a software solution that simplifies the manufacturing of complex products.

Gfi’s experience and longtime service with aerospace manufacturing companies is a natural fit for implementing iBase-t’s Manufacturing Operations Management software.”
