ATP Announces Partnership With Fast-Growing European Leader, Web Manuals

Partnership Enables ATP Customers to Streamline Management of Operating Manuals With Vastly Improved Efficiency, Cost-Effectiveness, and Control
 Martin Lidgard and Charles Picasso Celebrate Partnership
EBACE – Geneva, Switzerland – May 24, 2016 – Aircraft Technical Publishers (ATP) —  the general aviation industry's only single-source provider of information management and services for manufacturers, owners/operators, and maintenance providers —today announced a partnership with Web Manuals, the leading 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. The partnership represents a strong fit with ATP’s 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, who took the helm as ATP’s new CEO in 2015 to lead the company into a new era of growth. “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.”

This partnership enables aviation operators to evolve beyond outdated manual and paper-based processes in order to ensure regulatory compliance as well as operate more efficiently and cost-effectively. Synergistic benefits include:

- Streamline the Management of Operating Manuals – Enabling customers to proactively manage their operating manuals and other documents with greater efficiency and control

- Deliver Efficiency in Operations – Enabling customers to become more process-oriented and to become a continually improving organization through processes like LEAN and Six Sigma

- Improve Collaboration with Customers, Prospects and Partners – Enabling customers to easily share and collaborate on documents online with their customers, prospects and partners

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 US with a new office in San Diego, CA, operating under Web Manuals Inc., the company’s US subsidiary.

“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. “We’ve already gained significant traction in the US 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.
