Today we have released AvPlan Cloud. AvPlan Cloud is a management portal for your iPads and iPhones running AvPlan EFB. Designed with the needs of commercial organisations, flying schools, clubs etc, AvPlan Cloud allows devices to be logically grouped and managed.
AvPlan Cloud will display all your devices, show the state of the software versions and data on the devices (updated, not updated etc), displays location based tracking and you can even upload your own geo-referenced maps as well (in GeoTIFF or Geo-PDF) for use within AvPlan EFB.
Groups of devices can be created and these can be open (when all members can invite other members – say a flying club) or closed (where only Administrators can add devices – say a charter company or flying school). Uploaded maps can be shared with all devices in a group, and a tracking view for all group members is also available.
AvPlan Cloud groups can also be used for licensing groups of users. Dynamically add and remove users at will from a pool of licenses.
EFB Administrators will enjoy the ability to designate a device as the ‘golden copy’ and report on all devices which deviate from this standard.
