Aircraft Technical Publishers (ATP) Announces The Next Evolution in Anywhere, Anytime Access: ATP Aviation Hub™ Mobile
Aircraft Technical Publishers (ATP), an aviation industry provider of information, tools and services for manufacturers, operators/owners, and maintenance providers, announces the ATP Aviation Hub™ Mobile Application, the next evolution in anytime, anywhere information access. Designed to boost industry safety, aircraft utilization, and operational efficiency, the ATP Aviation Hub Mobile App provides maintenance providers with convenient online and offline access to mission critical maintenance, operating, and regulatory content.
ATP’s new mobile solution will complement and extend the power of the ATP Aviation Hub Cloud Application, an integrated suite of “smart content” services that enables maintenance providers to drive dramatic improvements in productivity, cost savings, and aircraft utilizations while also preventing costly regulatory lapses. The software as a service (SaaS) platform integrates maintenance and regulatory content with workflows to uniquely enable customers to streamline and effortlessly manage previously time-intensive and disconnected processes, including maintenance tracking, parts inventory tracking, ordering information, tool compliance, and employee training/certifications tracking.
“Our mission is to help our customers achieve a much higher level of productivity—as well as aircraft uptime and safety—by integrating mission critical content directly into maintenance workflows. We’re also helping the industry as a whole to evolve to unprecedented levels of operational efficiency by integrating and streamlining these processes,” says Charles Picasso, who took the helm as ATP’s new CEO in 2015 to lead the company into a new era of growth. “The ATP Aviation Hub Mobile App is an important next step in our vision of smart content services and seamless interconnectivity. With our mobile app, maintenance providers can access this vital content how and when they want, no matter where they are around the globe.”
The initial release of the mobile application will focus on providing customers convenient online and offline access to ATP Maintenance Libraries—the world’s most comprehensive, single-source library of general aviation maintenance, operating, and regulatory content. ATP Maintenance Libraries helps customers save significant time and effort by consolidating and organizing thousands of publications from hundreds of manufacturers, in addition to the world’s leading regulatory agencies. ATP is the industry’s only organization that links the most comprehensive maintenance information directly from 54 aircraft manufacturers and more than 200 component manufacturers to ensure the most accurate and up-to-date content.
The first release of the ATP Aviation Hub Mobile App will also provide customers with the company’s “Profile and Compliance” tool— ATP’s industry standard-setting service for the last two decades that ensures proper compliance tracking for airworthiness directives (ADs) and service bulletins (SBs).
The new mobile app extends the reach of the ATP Aviation Hub by providing users with additional options to access the cloud platform tools and services. The ATP Aviation Hub Mobile App enables users to run the application on mobile devices—such as smart phones, tablets, and laptops—that run on Windows, iOS, or Android platforms. Users can also download the application to run on any Windows desktop computer, as an additional option for convenient and flexible access.
As a significant feature, the new mobile app enables customers to download and store content to their devices locally—providing peace of mind by ensuring regulatory compliance and access to critical content even when not connected to the internet. Similarly, users can also use the mobile app to share content with other users within the company who have downloaded the app, via an SD or other memory card.
“As general aviation continues to grow more complex, we believe it will be critical for the industry as a whole to embrace new technologies that advance safety and improve efficiency,” says Stanko Paleksic, manager, Fleet Technical Support, at Viking Air Limited. “At Viking Air, we’re committed to innovations that help the industry evolve through greater interconnectivity and smarter information management. The ATP Aviation Hub Cloud and Mobile Applications are truly leading edge innovations that support our goals and provide tremendous value to our customers by reinforcing their safety and compliance efforts as well as boosting efficiency.”
The ATP Aviation Hub Mobile App will be generally available in January 2017. To see a demo and learn more about ATP Mobile and other company developments, please visit ATP at the NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition, Booth #825.
