The PFB Platform is a modular EFB solution enabling the operator to start out with only the modules desired in relation to priority needs. This insures that you can apply a long-term EFB policy knowing that the Platform can host any future integration requirements as they expand in the future. Additional features include ease ofmanagement and deployment, once the set-up has been customized to your operation. The PFB features flexible set-up of the actualsequencing of the various module functions, as well as sequencing of data input fields, which can be easily altered, added or changed in accordance with your operational requirements. The PFB Back-office functionality enables you to run and deploy differentiated document distribution to the EFB hardware units (pilot based or aircraft based) where, for example, crews of one aircraft type will not carry manuals for another aircraft type, whereas some technical responsible pilots might have all manuals, etc.
