Since flight directors are always on the go, we purchased over 300 tablets and needed a way to distribute the right content to the right tablets for offline access even during flights.”
Martin Lachance, Director, IT Solutions, at Air Transat
In 2014, Canada’s leading leading holiday travel airline, Air Transat decided to improve information governance and replace slow, labour-intensive paper-based document distribution across airports and migrated crew information to SharePoint Online. SharePoint provided a central repository for Air Transat critical documents – but the airline needed to extend access to flight teams in the air and often offline.
Air Transat chose Colligo mobile content management to distribute the latest data for upcoming flights via SharePoint Online and push it out to flight crew tablets. Every tablet has every document needed for a flight – accessible both online or offline – syncing automatically with the SharePoint repository once the offline tablet goes online again.
Webinar with Air Transat tells the full story:
Air Transat’s IT Solutions team centrally controls the distribution of electronic documents and forms using Colligo, and reviews activity dashboards to track usage metrics. Beyond providing ease in information management, Colligo has also been critical for Air Transat data compliance.
Deploying Colligo has enabled Air Transat to more efficiently meet regulatory requirements. To comply, we’re mandated to maintain current manuals aboard each aircraft. Air Transat gained regulatory approval to replace print manuals with electronic versions on tablets with Colligo. Distribution across tablets is instantaneous. It’s also easier to search through electronic manuals – crew no longer need to ‘flip’ to the right pages.
