The value of airline read and sign software for EFB depends on how well it’s built for the end user when they’re facing a critical situation – especially because of the growing need to access actionable data that’s spreading throughout the industry.
Market research firm Technavio recently identified new regulatory mandates, hardware innovations, and data access as the key drivers of expectations, ideas, and innovations for EFB systems through 2021. Regarding data, it makes sense: the desire for relevant, decision-making data is amplified because of the rise of the connected aircraft, the constant need to make flight safety decisions, and continuing technology advances that offer information based on situation. (Just look at turn-by-turn driving directions or music streaming apps that personalize based on mood and activity.)
In the flight ops space today, providing end users with actionable data that’s filtered and personalized for the current situation (and aircraft) is challenged by the sheer number of required data sources as well as complicated document management processes. However, these are burdens that end users, such as pilots and flight attendants, shouldn’t have to bear. In time, capabilities will improve through emerging new standards such as ATA Spec 2300 and new aircraft types.
In addition, consider these 4 ways to improve your EFB program, including airline read and sign software for EFB, and end user effectiveness that can be applied today.
