ForeFlight Manage Geared To Individual Pilots And Corporate
An online portal for individual and business aviation customers
has been rolled out by ForeFlight that provides access to account
information and ForeFlight Mobile pilot and device management
tools. Called 'ForeFlight Manage', it is available now to
ForeFlight Mobile customers.
"Our customer base has grown rapidly over the past year”,
said Tyson Weihs, co-founder of ForeFlight. “In addition to
the many individual pilots we support every day, ForeFlight also
serves many Fortune 500 corporate flight departments, fractional
operators, charter operators, and government customers ranging from
the FBI to the FAA. As our customers base grows, we have many
opportunities to observe large iPad deployments, and as a result
developed a deep understanding for the tools customers require to
successfully manage their devices. ForeFlight Manage delivers a set
of management tools and an online platform to customers that
simplifies ForeFlight account and deployment management.”
From within ForeFlight Manage, both individual and business
aviation customers can review past purchases and invoices,
one-click upgrade or downgrade to add or remove account features,
add and remove pilots to their account, and manage iOS devices.
ForeFlight Manage eliminates software license key management,
allowing customer deployment managers and pilots to access
ForeFlight services using their email address and password.
ForeFlight Manage uses an email invitation workflow to provision
new pilots, simplifying the process with which new pilots are
granted access to ForeFlight Mobile. Pilots are added or removed
from ForeFlight Manage by flight department managers at any time.
Flight department managers can view iOS devices in use, remotely
deactivate subscriptions on devices that no longer need access, and
easily upgrade subscription services.
The adoption of iPads in flight operations requires tools that
make daily flight department operations more efficient, and
ForeFlight Manage is designed to meet this need.
