  • Airlines / MRO companies are so desperate nowadays, they will fall for anything - even the most complex MRO software such as Trax. Employees spend more time duplicating bugs and resolving issues with the software than doing actual work. Trax MRO software is a scam. To learn more about Trax scams and software frauds, please join us at traxmrosucks.com brought to you by a united group of whitleblowers against Trax scams and frauds.
