Absolute best way to computerize your general aviation maintenance shop without going bankrupt.

Pros

1. Extremely affordable. Even a mechanic working out of his truck could afford it. I honestly thought the price was some kind of gimmick when they gave me the sales pitch. We're locked in on our price and they've since raised the price/
2. Incredible customer service. Cust support representative was really easy to work with and very responsive. Plus the way they have the program set up, they can often fix problems or implement change suggestions within minutes, sometimes while you're still on the phone with them.
3. Truly web based. You're not remoting into a server that they administer on their physical premises. The program runs off of Google's cloud servers, so if you have internet (phone, tablet, laptop, whatever), you have Quantum-MX. That's apparently why it's so inexpensive. It also means they can push program changes easily and you don't even have to download updates. Every time the webpage loads, you have the latest version.
4. The reminders feature is pretty great. Our customers really like being able to see all their equipment due dates and times at a glance. It's an easy to read, graphic presentation. Status bars for each item progress from left to right and change from green to yellow to red as they get close to hitting their limit.
5. Good looking, customizable, professional invoices. 'Nuff said!

Cons

About the only thing I'm not fond of is the date reporting on reminders. It works, it's just not what people are used to seeing in their logbooks. Example: if your ELT battery expires MAR 2019, Quantum reports it "due" 1 April 2019. In other words, it reports the first no-go date rather than the day it expires.

Sean, thank you for your feedback, we really appreciate it. Happy Holidays! We have adjusted the reminder reporting to report the reminder expiration date as you suggested.

Aviation's leading Repair Station Work Order Software Simplifies, Saves Time and High Quality

I believe my pros say it all.

Pros

Organized
Best software for repair stations to provide a platform that organizes parts, engines, customer information, work orders and employee labor time.
Allows you to track labor time to gain a plausible average to help your shop meet or exceed deadlines and also allows you to generate a full timeline to relay to a new customer you are trying to win over the competition.
Data entry platform is a great feature that allows you to input as much information you have on parts, repair orders, work orders, purchase orders and sales orders.
I also like that once you receive parts you have the option to scan and upload applicable documentation that can make it easy to show trace and or what tags or vendor the items came from.
This by far is one of my favorite softwares to use that we have in our engone repair station since i use it for receiving and shipping but also since I am a Aircraft Mechanic i use it for labor tracking which saves the time for me having to try and remember what i did and for how long.

Cons

When data entering items for someone who relies on quick and efficient work flow this part can sometimes be a drag depending on how big of a network server you have. I have had a few instances where i have dealt with the software freezing or locking me out.

Awesome Software

When I first purchased Quantum MX, I wasn't sure what to expect. I had been looking at different software alternatives to the paper forms we were using and most of them were not created to be useful in a maintenance setting. QuantumMX has almost everything I was looking for, individual accounts for each mechanic, inventory tracking, customer databases, logbook builders, and even aircraft maintenance tracking. After a few days of making dummy work orders and playing with what the software is capable of, I was very comfortable with using most of the features. My older co-workers . . . needed a little more help, but they are now using it much more efficiently and I'm spending much less time chasing paperwork! The customer support at Quantum MX is superb. They post a phone number (an actual phone number) on the Fly Online Tools website and you can talk to an actual real live person! The few times that I have contacted them, they have been knowledgeable and quick to assist. All in all, great software operated and maintained by great people!

Pros

I love that this software allows my employees to easily time in and out of different parts of different jobs. It has made it so much easier to create logbooks and invoices.

Cons

The home page is really . . . not helpful. The only thing you can do from the home page is view aircraft and open work orders. It would be nicer if the home page showed more information (parts on order, pending WOs, open WOs, maybe a calendar schedule).

Quantum Mx is the perfect fit for us

We did a soft launch of the system in December. All of our technicians had a very easy time adjusting from paper work orders to completing everything on the computer. We fully launched the system on January 3rd for our entire business. The integration between QMX and Quickbooks has been a challenge but the instant support from rep and the team has kept the frustration level to a minimum. After a half hour conference call yesterday had answers to many questions and figured out why some of the parameters were not working. The team work on our system overnight and we are fully functional this morning. Kudos to rep and the team for a great product! This system is going to streamline our business and we will be able to track things that we were never able to before. We understand the initial struggles with going from ground zero to a running "live" system and this has had us frustrated a couple of times.....I cannot reiterate enough how the support has been there instantaneous whether it is via email or phone calls. We are so happy to have the system running and now Quickbooks communicates with QMX with no issues. (Well, quickbooks has some issues). The team is taking our feedback and that of other user to better the program! That is a huge positive to know they are listening to our needs and making changes to accommodate them! So far, so good. Couldn't be happier!!

Pros

It is written specifically with maintenance shops in mind.

Cons

Some of the integration is difficult, more of an issue with Quickbooks. Some of the features are not shop friendly and the team is working to fix those problems.

Samuel, thank you for your review. We are committed to your success and appreciate your feedback. Getting Quantum MX configured and synchronized with Quickbooks Online can take some time, as Quickbooks is very strict w/r to many of the data elements (customers, products/services, classes, accounts.) After 100 days or so, please check in and let us know how QMX is adding to your competitive advantage. Douglas Pouk - Product Manager, FLY Online Tools

Best MX software for my small GA maintenance shop

Been using quantum mx for over a year now and it has helped my shop tremendously. I have yet to use all the functionality of the program yet but so far for the basic use of work orders, invoicing and inventory it has been great. The company has great customer service and I have been working with Doug on any problems I may have. It does take a little bit of time to get used to using it but after learning it, it isn't so bad.

Pros

Easy of use and accessibility.

Cons

Takes awhile to learn all the function. Sometimes is hard to find some options.

Pros

Easy to run, always adding new thinks, good support service, low monthly charge.

Cons

Can't get to configure my printer for the right label.

Replied November 2016

Thanks for your review David. Regarding your Con for printer configurations...Quantum MX exports logbook entries in a PDF format, so the printer settings are local to your PDF viewer or browser. Make sure your printer settings are not set to "stretch to fit". You may also try saving the PDF to your computer and viewing it in a PDF reader that is not embedded in your browser.

If you need a efficient, modern aircraft tracking program for your business? then look no further.

Pros

Just to name a few, this program can track aircraft TIS, Components TIS TSO, stores, work orders, logbook entries and of course maintenance tracking with reminders for items coming due. With an easy to use, modern platform based on a server where you can never loose your information and is accessible anywhere! even your Smartphone!
Customer Support is extraordinary and open to any improvements to satisfy customer requirements. This server based program is extremely cheap when you compare to others.

Cons

Hard to find one.any issues i have had is normally rectified quickly but i would have to say the Airworthiness Directive tracking still needs improving.

Quantum MX has made us more efficient in both operation and administrative tasks.

Pros

The ease of managing work orders and the simple and quick steps to create other administrative paper work such as invoices and log book entries based on the work order already established.

The ability to manage parts on order/received for each work order.

The tracking function of work orders allowing you to manage completion, invoicing and payment.

Cons

We wish there was a way to do a data dump for work orders and logbook entries for backup purpose ( in addition to Quantum in house backups).

Overall an excellent value with great features.

Pros

Everything is in the cloud and available when ever/where ever and from any device. Product support is fast and effective. Almost all support questions relate to system use with only rare tech issues. Both are resolved immediately.

Cons

Unlearning our "old" system and learning a new one seems to be the most difficult aspect. We can see that moving into Quantum MX with no prior experience with other software would have been much easier.
