Shedding Light on Personalized and Targeted Distribution
When it comes to personalized and targeted distribution of content, PDF is not enough.

See how it's possible to eliminate these issues with this #PDFIsNotEnough version of the game "Would You Rather?"
Should tech pubs care about personalized and targeted distribution?
Despite the issues surrounding document distribution at many airlines, pilots and flight attendants are still getting the data they need to do their jobs.

Check out the fun flowchart to answer this question for yourself once and for all.
is distributing documents harder than it should be?

Until recently, many airlines have only used one way to prepare for standards audits: spend months manually tracking and identifying where standards are answered in manuals. But now, there’s a new approach to audit preparation that enables your airline to always be audit ready. See our latest infographic to decide which audit preparation path you’ll choose.

3 Signs Audits Could Be Easier
Many airlines have had to slow or stop operations altogether due to COVID-19. But the need for airline audit preparedness continues as airlines are still held to regulatory standards. If you’ve been in aviation for any length of time, you know that collecting compliance is ongoing, and that proving compliance through a regulatory audit is additional work on top of everything else. And when your airline is audited, responding to the request is often a complicated process fraught with struggle and stress – but it doesn’t have to be if you’re always audit-ready. Read more.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle Content
One reason operational content management is difficult is the large amount of content that multiple groups in your airline are responsible for creating. And the struggle is more intense if you’re adding AOCs, adding fleets, or expanding to new destinations. Reusing content is an effective way to measurably increase authoring efficiency and gain strategic advantages. Just check out the infographic for the specifics. View infographic.
Every new year brings a fresh start, which explains why New Year’s resolutions are so popular. If you haven’t decided on a resolution yet, consider resolving to create manual content more efficiently by reusing content that already exists. As our own nod to getting things done fast, the tips in this article will quickly explain ways you can start reusing content. Read more.
Find out whether your airline’s use of content is enabling the most efficiency possible and how you’re doing compared to other airlines. Your results will also include actionable ways to maximize authoring efficiency that impact the entire operation. Take the quiz!
The Future of Compliance Improves Operations
If you're anything like most airlines, compliance is just part of life – one that’s often viewed as just a way to stay out of trouble. But by improving the way you execute your everyday compliance tasks, you can also improve your operations, getting more value from work you’re already doing. Read more
It’s not a secret: Operational compliance is time and resource consuming. It takes months for the airline and operation to compile data that satisfies a regulator’s request to see where standards are answered in the manuals.
So what’s the “secret” to not just reducing, but eliminating, this drain on your operation? It’s to take a new approach: Instead of preparing for audits when they happen, enable your airline to always be audit-ready. Read more
