Swedish software company Web Manuals (Booth A04) recently announced it has signed five new German clients in the past six months. These new clients make up approximately 25 percent of the company’s European users and join the likes of Germany’s ADAC Luftrettung, Aero Dienst and Star Wings. They are also part of a group of 17 international clients the company signed in the past six months. Users have access to Web Manuals’ software, which compiles frequently updated manuals on operations, maintenance, safety and security in the aviation industry.
Web Manuals founder and CEO Martin Lidgard said, “More than 90 operators around the world are now experiencing the major advantages of implementing the Web Manuals’ product. We have been rightly selected by our new German business aviation clients to help them simplify and accelerate the authoring, review, publishing, distribution and control of their operations manuals, enabling them to make huge time and cost savings.”
Most recently, Web Manuals released its 6.1 Super Gripen update in late January of this year. The update makes it easier to write, review, publish, distribute and control all the documents in an operator’s library of manuals. Other improvements include a more powerful search engine, enhanced alerts for users, and updated collaboration features. These improved collaboration features make it easier for multiple colleagues to work in a document at the same time with each fully aware of what the others are doing.
Lidgard added, “Our clients regularly tell us how we have revolutionized the way they create, manage and deliver content to their organizations. Web Manuals enables all our clients to have better control of their manuals, ensuring they remain compliant, so they can focus on the smooth running of their businesses. With two of our new clients DAX 30 listed, these are clearly forward-thinking companies who understand that Web Manuals is a necessary tool for businesses, which prioritizes safe and successful operations whilst satisfying the needs of shareholders.”
Approximately 80 operators worldwide are using the Web Manuals system. Users pay monthly fees of €100 ($107) for each person who needs editing rights to manuals, and €6 ($6.42) for each person who simply needs to reference the manuals. Pilots can access manuals on mobile devices when offline, although they need to synchronize changes when online.
