The benefits of taking control of your airline documents with Viasat Aerodocs

Take Control – reduce outsourcing risks

At Viasat, we believe that our in-flight connectivity must offer value, drive positive impacts, and enable and optimize opportunities for airlines. Viasat Aerodocs benefits from IFC, with the ability to deliver operations manual updates to pilots while in-flight, but it also has core benefits applicable to all fleet types, including those that are currently pre-connected.

We place a lot of focus on learning from our airline partners about how they benefit from their deployment of Viasat Aerodocs. This feedback helps our product teams to make Aerodocs even better and our professional services teams to get to the heart of the problem quickly when planning a new deployment.

Outsourced document management issues

What we’ve learned is that there are recurring issues around outsourced document management services, which can be resolved by Aerodocs. These problems include:

  • Revision service takes a long time due to quality management issues and time difference;
  • Training in XML coding (Extensible Markup Language, which defines a set of rules for encoding documents in a format that is both human-readable and machine-readable) or FODM (Flight Ops Data Management, the Airbus XML format) is required if an airline needs to edit the documents directly;
  • System limitations sometimes drive departments (often dispersed, with multiple AOCs) to create their own alternative repositories. This defeats the goal of having a centralized document control system/repository. Recurring difficulties in creating repositories for big volumes and sub-folders.
  • Systems are unable to automatically assign roles to users, so users are unable to access the site. Roles have to be assigned manually for the users to be able to see the manuals and access rights can be difficult to manage.

Viasat Aerodocs is the end-to-end document management system for aviation. Built around airline needs, designed for ease-of-use, and scalable to any sized air operation, it’s a future-proof, cost-cutting system that solves real problems in a measurable way.

  1. Remain compliant,
  2. React quickly to external events, and

you need as much control as possible over your airline. That’s why we created Aerodocs, the only document management system that gives you complete control over your airline documentation. Aerodocs is a breakthrough technology that allows you to edit, distribute, control and track all of your aviation documents in real-time. We’re already delivering remarkable benefits to some of the world’s most effective, profitable and best-loved airlines, including SpiceJet, Qatar Airways, Malaysia Airlines, Singapore Airlines and Aer Lingus.
Why outsource, when there are so many real benefits to controlling your documents in-house:

  • React quickly and intelligently to external events, evolving regulations and market demands.
  • With Aerodocs, you can control your documents in-house, and also control your costs, with a demonstrable ROI.
