Banyan Air Service Completes Agreement With ATP to Begin Transitioning Technical Publication Libraries to Online Access

Aircraft Technical Publishers (ATP) Cloud-Based SaaS Application Enables Competitive Advantage With Improved Speed, Productivity, and Flexibility in Maintenance Operations

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 1, 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 that Banyan Air Service has completed an agreement with ATP to begin transitioning their entire technical information library from CD-based services to the ATP Aviation Hub™, the company's cloud-based SaaS application. With anywhere, anytime online access to critical maintenance and regulatory information, the Fort Lauderdale, Florida-based FBO (Fixed Based Operation) reported dramatically improved operating efficiency, speed, and flexibility, among other benefits.

Established in 1979, Banyan Air Service has been consistently ranked by the industry as one of the country's top FBOs -- along with a maintenance division that has been awarded the "Diamond Certificate of Excellence" by the FAA. The company provides 24-hour red-carpet FBO services to more turbine aircraft than any other FBO in the southeast, in addition to heavy aircraft maintenance, full avionics capabilities and turbine engine services.

"We pride ourselves on the highest levels of service excellence and the ATP Aviation Hub represents a considerable source of advantage in a highly competitive market," said Lewis Homsher, Quality Assurance Manager. "Meeting and exceeding the expectations of our customers means not only getting the job done right as quoted, but also working as productively as possible to minimize aircraft downtime. With hassle-free access to the most current maintenance and regulatory information at our fingertips, we can deliver on that promise with confidence."

A satisfied ATP customer for decades, Banyan Air Service decided to make the shift from disc-based information service to the SaaS (Software as a Service) application after testing the ATP Aviation Hub firsthand. The company reported convenience, flexibility, and ease of use among the many benefits; Banyan's maintenance staff can access technical and other information on any internet-enabled device, while managers have flexibility in assigning access and permissions to specific staff members based on the type of work they are assigned.

In addition to instant scalability at the flip of a switch, upgrading to the cloud-based application also lifted the burden on staff who were previously required to constantly maintain and update dedicated servers and hardware, as well as managing content updates received every two weeks on publication revision discs. More importantly, with ATP Aviation Hub, Banyan Air Service can ensure that all of their technicians have instantaneous access to the most accurate and up-to-date technical and regulatory information available from any computer with Internet access.

Homsher explained: "Obviously we don't want access to this type of mission-critical information to be a bottleneck in getting aircraft back up in the air. ATP Aviation Hub is truly a turnkey solution that does the heavy lifting for us and frees us up to focus on what we do best. By integrating all of this constantly updated information for us, ATP takes that complexity out of the equation and helps us speed and streamline our maintenance operations."

The ATP Aviation Hub enables anywhere, anytime access to ATP® Libraries, ATP Parts, ATP Maintenance, and the AskBob™ AMT Community through an integrated platform, which is accessed through a single intuitive web browser interface.

ATP's new unified 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. ATP is the industry's only organization that links the most comprehensive and current maintenance information directly from 54 aircraft manufacturers.
