As a mature platform with various sized screens and a strong operating system, the iPad was a clear choice for the program. "We evaluated hardware and software for Android and Windows 8 as well," said Andrew Kemmetmueller, CEO of Allegiant Systems. "Ultimately, it came down to the decision that we needed a platform we could invest into for five years or more that provided required security and stability." As technology and airlines' need evolves, the FlyDesk solution may be available on the iPad mini.
The BoB app is offered as part of Allegiant Systems' integrated FlyDesk™ solution, which provides airlines with a turnkey mobile solution for their cabin and flight crews. As well as the BoB app, FlyDesk offers FlyDesk Cabin (in-cabin operations) and FlyDesk EFB (Electronic Flight Bag). FlyDesk's unique "apps store" format provides airlines with the opportunity to customize their solution and continuously add additional functionality as the need arises. All of the FlyDesk apps offer faster deployment, effortless scaling and continuous support.
