However, there are still a few areas where mobile devices have not fully caught on yet, but that is rapidly changing. With the ATP Aviation Hub™ Mobile Application, even aircraft maintenance professionals can use mobile devices to access mission-critical technical and compliance information anywhere, anytime, on any device.
In short, the application enhances the utility of ATP’s cloud-based solution so that any maintenance worker, using any digital tool, can access from virtually anywhere, all of the publications and compliance information required to keep aircraft safe and airworthy.
Benefits of ATP Aviation Hub™ Mobile Application
Total Technical Document Access On The Go
The mobile application delivers benefits to users of all three major software platforms for mobile devices, adding compatibility for Windows, Android and iOS. This means aircraft maintenance technicians have the freedom to choose any device they prefer, including Windows laptops, Surface tablets, iPhones, iPads, and Android tablets and phones.
“The new ATP Aviation Hub mobile application is truly a game-changer for maintenance operations,” explained Victor Sanchez, ATP’s Chief Product Officer. “Aviation professionals no longer need to worry about whether their technicians have the correct and current information, even when the aircraft is in a remote location where there is no internet access.”
The Aviation Hub Mobile Application also complements the ATP Aviation Hub Cloud Application to cover the spectrum of access tools and information access. “We offer an application no other company can in terms of access to mission-critical content,” said Sanchez.
Providing Maintenance Information With Expandability and Growth Built-In
The initial release of the ATP Aviation Hub Mobile Application focuses on serving customers’ needs for convenient on-line and off-line access to ATP Maintenance Libraries and the familiar Profile & Compliance tool. ATP Maintenance Libraries let customers save significant time and effort by consolidating and organizing thousands of publications from hundreds of airframe, engine, propeller and component manufacturers, as well as from the world’s leading regulatory agencies.
“Accessing required content from one source for all the various components on an aircraft and all the aircraft in your fleet saves countless hours and dramatically improves efficiency,” said Jeff Seiler, ATP’s Director of Product Management. “And with the new mobile application, technicians know they have access to this wealth of information wherever they go.”
And, this is only the beginning for ATP’s new mobile application. The company’s vision is to continue building on its maintenance information platforms to provide a wide array of content-enabled “smart” tools designed to support the aircraft maintenance process.
Greater Technological Flexibility
While the ATP Aviation Hub Mobile Application allows users to run the application online, it also offers the option to download the content in ATP Libraries and Profile & Compliance to mobile devices for offline access.
ATP continues to develop new ways to make the ATP Aviation Hub Mobile Application even more useful. David Perkins, Senior Director of Marketing for ATP, noted, “We are constantly seeking input and feedback from our customers, and we work closely with the industry to create solutions that improve productivity and safety. Over the years, ATP has introduced innovative solutions that have changed aircraft maintenance, and the ATP Aviation Hub Mobile Application is the next evolution in this continuing process.”
