Learn the benefits of the DocuNet Distribution Platform

The DocuNet distribution platform is a publishing and distribution platform which is self-managed, for non-structured documents like PDFs. It allows airlines to manage documents and control all content and distribution via a single, user-friendly and scalable system. Documents are uploaded on the platform and automatically converted into ‘intelligent PDFs’ to then be published and distributed.

Airlines must continuously keep up with manufacturer updates, changing regulations and other internal and external factors that challenge day-to-day operations. Ultimately, it’s all to ensure that an airline remains compliant, avoids security threats and can work as efficiently as possible. As such, airline documents need to be correct, up-to-date and need to be able to be delivered to the right people at the right time.

The management of these highly complex and structured documents can be challenging and can overtake other tasks and result in lost utility with employees, human error and security threats. This can certainly be the case if you’re using multiple third-party tools and software to get the job done. However, they don’t always meet the technical requirements for users and can be a drain on resources. But with the right document management system, you can ensure that you can improve your airline’s efficiency, compliance and safety, whilst also delivering your mission-critical documents on time.
