Where are you going on holiday this summer? How will you get there? Do you like to fly? Have you ever considered how many countless factors need to be taken into account to guarantee flight safety? As I passenger, I don't spend that much time thinking about it as my imagination would probably play havoc with my mind and cause me to run a mile from any airport.

Flight staff at Deutsche Lufthansa use a mobile end device – an EFB – to help maintain safety and calmness. The device contains, among other things, an application library with various documents. The 3-Heights™ PDF Viewer ensures that the documents in the device are accessible and readable. Quick access to important information further increases flight safety. Good to know! Ready for take-off.

Safety is also a topic for the ECM from Integra Business System – in this case, however, the 3-Heights™ PDF to Image Converter has nothing to do with a safe take-off, rather with supporting users through its efficient mapping fidelity.

Ever more companies are placing their trust in products from PDF Tools. We have added a new member to our team to make sure we continue to satisfy customer needs and the demands we place on ourselves. We are pleased to introduce Roy Matas to you.

We hope you have fun reading these articles and planning your holiday.

Success story Deutsche Lufthansa AG

More efficient mobile access to information for pilots

“We would especially like to mention the fast and competent support provided by PDF Tools AG that was available to us throughout the entire project implementation phase.“
Frank Enders, Manager IT-Infrastructure,
Deutsche Lufthansa AG

The so-called Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) in use at Lufthansa provides flight personnel with all general, personal and flight-related information on a single end device. The application on the EFB supports all of the main processes for flight preparation, execution and wrap-up.
Changing the PDF Viewer has made it possible to include additional documents from airplane manufacturers; it also provides greater access speed to existing documents. Faster access to important information has further increased flight safety.
