Jeppesen Distribution Manager now on Windows-based avionics updates

Boeingf (NYSE: BA) Commercial Aviation Services company Jeppesen said it will offer customers a new service platform to update their avionics data, Jeppesen Distribution Manager (JDM) for Windows.

The former Jeppesen Services Update Manager (JSUM) is now available as JDM for Windows and is being released in a phased approach across the Jeppesen large avionics data services customer base to ensure a seamless transition.

JDM for Windows provides customers with a redesigned interface that is based on the latest user design principles and direct pilot interaction. The new Web-based user interface features improvements with design framework, graphics and workflow capabilities. A drag-and-drop feature allows for simplified movement of information on-screen, while enhanced filtering by aircraft and custom folders will enhance efficiency for pilots.

For more than 80 years, Jeppesen has made it possible for pilots and their passengers to safely and efficiently reach their destinations. It is a Boeing subsidiary and part of the Digital Aviation business unit within Boeing Commercial Aviation Services.
