ATP | January 20, 2023
On January 19, 2023, ATP, which offers information services and software solutions to the aviation industry, informed that it is planning to introduce a new set of features to its Flightdocs Operations software platform.
The revamped product ensures smooth flight scheduling and trip planning using improved communication features that optimize data flow. The updates will be part of the new product showcase at NBAA's Schedulers and Dispatcher Conference in Nashville (Tennessee) from January 24 to 26, 2023.
Flightdocs Operations provides flight operations management software to schedulers and dispatchers that utilizes real-time data and resource availability. The platform allows users to manage crew, create trips, and communicate with team members from a single, up-to-date calendar view.
ATP ensures that passengers' personally identifying information is kept private and safe by using strong data and software controls. It is also fully cloud-based and ISO-certified. The native mobile solution, available as an iOS app, also works offline. This lets end users, who are frequently on the road, such as crews and pilots, sign in and complete electronic flight logs in locations without internet connectivity.
Mike Profit, COO of ATP, shares, "The unique aspect about this groundbreaking tool is that it's one of the first and only cloud-based web applications on the market for flight operations and scheduling that is fully integrated with a maintenance tracking platform." He adds, "With this product, we are breaking down silos between maintenance and flight operations departments to eliminate any miscommunication between the two and improving operating efficiency in order to maximize aircraft uptime."
