ATP Partners With European Web Manual Company

Aircraft Technical Publishers (ATP) has partnered with Web Manuals, a developer of digital documentation solutions for the aviation industry. Bringing together two complementary cloud-based solutions, the partnership is expected to help ATP customers drive greater operational efficiencies, boost regulatory compliance, and improve collaboration with their customers, prospects, and partners.
With the partnership, ATP customers will be able to digitize and streamline the management of operating manuals, including the ability to author, distribute and update content with vastly improved efficiency, cost-effectiveness and control. ATP says the partnership represents a strong fit with their new vision of unified process management—enabling maintenance providers to drive dramatic improvements in productivity, cost savings, and aircraft utilizations, while also preventing costly regulatory lapses.
“Both ATP and Web Manuals are helping the industry evolve through digitization and interconnectivity of workflows, processes, and data,” said Charles Picasso, ATP’s new CEO, above right. “It’s clear the rate of complexity and change in the industry will continue to rise. In order to keep pace with these changes, our customers will need to be more pro-active in managing their operating manuals and related documentation.”
A fast-growing company based in Sweden, Web Manuals is widely adopted by aircraft operators worldwide and counts a number of maintenance organizations as current customers — both independent MROs as well as European CAMO and Part 145 organizations working within larger operations. The company recently expanded into the U. S. with a new office in San Diego, Cali.
“We have a proven track record of helping our clients enhance control, compliance and agility with our solutions, and are excited about the opportunity to build on our reputation as the market leader in Europe,” said Martin Lidgard, CEO and founder of Web Manuals, above left. “We’ve already gained significant traction in the U. S. and are confident that we will be able to accelerate our momentum through this partnership with ATP.”
ATP will be offering Web Manuals’ functionality through the ATP Aviation Hub cloud application, which streamlines maintenance workflows and improves processes with anywhere, anytime access to ATP Libraries, ATP Parts, ATP Maintenance, and the AskBob AMT Community. ATP’s new unified software as a service (SaaS) platform uniquely enables maintenance providers to effortlessly track and manage previously time-intensive and disconnected processes—including maintenance tracking, parts inventory tracking, ordering information, tool compliance, and employee training/ certifications tracking.
