Library and Open Documents Management

EFB Manager provides a Library function that allows the user to select documents for viewing in the Document Viewer application. The Library also supports movies, memos, messages, forms and notes. Library contents are managed by the customer using the web based Strongpilot Back Office Administrator application.

Once a document has been selected from the library and opened in the Document Viewer, it becomes available in the Open Documents application. This allows multiple documents to be opened at the same time. Open documents are automatically synchronized with the Document Viewer; that is, as the user navigates through a document using the Document Viewer application, the exact location is updated in the Open Documents application. The user can leave a document for another application or Document and always find his or her place again.
