In 1999, EmpowerMX launched its first software solution, focused on production control. Since then, EmpowerMX has grown significantly, moving from that first product launch to a robust set of software tools that are used by the world’s largest airlines and MROs.

And though we’ve moved from Duluth to Dallas, we remember our roots and expertise as we evolve as a company. In recognition of those roots, we are adopting the name of one of Minnesota’s lakes, Itasca, for the name of our current release. We’ve spent the last two decades listening to mechanics, leads, supervisors, and base leadership in order to fine tune our existing products and expand our portfolio of offerings where they add true value to customers.

Building on the foundation of production control, we’ve added new products that enable ultimate mechanic efficiency, such as Electronic Task Cards and Electronic Logbook. We’ve focused on our Production Manager module, that enables customers to optimize manpower and adjust critical path to improve delivery schedules. As we’ve implemented at major airlines, we’ve become industry leaders in integration, allowing our products to fit seamlessly into customers’ existing software solutions Taking advantage of the latest in mobile and cloud, while still supporting traditional desktop and in-house infrastructure, our latest software enables our customers to access information where they need it most.
