There are a great number of companies offering Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) solutions. However,
currently no firm definition of an EFB system exists in the market. This makes it very easy for
potential clients to be confused as to what exactly is being offered to them. Any kind of comparison
then becomes an exercise in futility.
International Flight Support (IFS) offers its customers a path to a goal -
A Paperless Cockpit.
And in the long run to global reduction of
“paper” documents in the whole of services and departments of an air transport company.
There are many ways to achieve this goal with IFS products. One can do it gradually,
by replacing individual paper-based functions with effective software module, or one
can try to do it all at once - by substituting all of the paper with digital services.
Either way, the solution offered by IFS allows for a smooth transition, without dead-end
hardware and wasted capital costs, to get to the desired goal.
IFS main focus is software, which allows the client to choose the desired and most
suitable physical (hardware) platform on which to run the various time-saving and
efficiency-building modules. Our services work on Windows, Apple and Android based
Operating Systems (OS)
. The goal is to give the customer the freedom of choice and
not to push a particular EFB device that could become obsolete or ineffectual for
the client in the long-run.
The EFB solution offered by our company is designed to provide the customer with as
many options as possible. This not only goes for the choice of hardware , but also
for the services available from 3rd Party providers. Once the IFS software platform
is chosen the customer should have the ability to add applications and modules from
other vendors to be able to work with the IFS software platform. The list of these
services is practically limitless
