“What makes EMPIC® and EMPIC-EAP® so special?”

  • EMPIC has the world’s largest client base for aviation regulator’s oversight software.
  • We are the only software provider organizing international user group meetings for aviation regulators for more than 15 years – built by regulators for regulators.
  • Almost more than 20 years experience in the niche market of aviation regulator oversight software: we know and meet your needs! We actively monitor aviation regulation changes.
  • We work for aviation regulators exclusively, not for the industry. No potential conflict of interest.
  • EMPIC guarantees continuous development of the software to keep pace with the changes in regulations and technology, safeguarding your investment. One of the benefits of the maintenance contract.
  • EMPIC is flexible in project implementation: as a general contractor offering turn-key solutions or just providing support to your implementation team.
  • We intend to work with you in a long-lasting relationship. Our clients from the first hour are still on board. Many clients are with us for ten, fifteen or more years.
  • EMPIC also supports implementing customer projects with the help of local partners. The product’s high level of configurability allows our implementation partners in Asia, Africa and America to introduce EMPIC-EAP® without having access to the EMPIC source code. They just configure the product according to the customer’s needs – or the customer can configure the system with their own resources.
  • EMPIC is profitable, has no debts and relevant revenues of over 8.5 Mio. EUR annually with aviation regulators.
