Digital documentation provider Web Manuals (Booth 225) has signed Solairus Aviation as its newest customer. “Seeking a digital solution to our paper manuals has long been on our radar,” said Tom Benvenuto, senior v-p of flight operations for Solairus. “The benefits are significant, chiefly the amount of time and money that will be saved and better utilized in other areas of the business.”

Solairus has a managed fleet of 145 aircraft and 55 based locations across North America, making it Web Manuals’ largest business aviation customer to date. Solairus will use Hurricane V7, the latest version of Web Manuals software. The suite will review and distribute documents to Solairus’s staff. The software comes with more than 200 guides, including step-by-step walkthroughs, and 35 video demonstrations.

“We will work with [Solairus] to support their operations, meaning they can remain agile and competitive and focus on other areas of the business,” said Web Manuals founder and CEO Martin Lidgard.

Lidgard is setting up shop at Web Manuals’ newest office in New York. It’s the first East Coast office for the Sweden-based company, which also has an office in San Diego and a fourth in Melbourne, Australia. Lidgard said the company not only launched its seventh version of Hurricane software this year, but also opened a customer portal and online store. He said its U.S. business has more than doubled since appearing at last year’s NBAA-BACE.
