Mekon announces that DCS Sonovision Limited select ADG and Mekon's S1000D Solution

20 October, 2015: Mekon A&D announced today that Pennant IPS and Mekon UK’s S1000D solution has been selected by DCS Sonovision UK Limited, giving DCS the capability to offer IETP/IETM services to their customer base.

DCS chose Mekon, (an ADG authorized solution partner) and the R4i S1000D Product Suite after a comprehensive review process, selecting Mekon for its expertise, industry reputation and worldwide experience in deploying S1000D installations for Aerospace and Defence clients.

Peter Merchant, Director DCS-Sonovision UK Ltd. said “We are delighted with the support and training we have received from the Mekon group and their understanding of S1000D, making our choice an easy one.”

DCS wanted to extend their S1000D authoring services to include delivering technical data via Interactive Electronic Technical Publications/ Manuals (IETPs/IETMs) over the Web and mobile devices. With ADG’s R4i CSDB Server, FREE R4i Viewer and R4i MobieTP for Android, this is now possible in a highly functional and easy to use solution.

The solution being deployed will increase the DCS competitive advantage in delivering highly functional electronic documents in the R4i Viewer which is freely distributed for maximum customer value and accessability.  End user experience is a growing factor in effectiveness to customers out in the field and delivering an IETP is an important part of this process.
