Surge in Demand for Mercatorís RAPID Revenue Accounting Solution

Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Thursday, 7 May 2009

Mercatorís RAPID revenue accounting solution has experienced an upsurge in demand during the last financial quarter, with a number of airlines signing new contracts for the first time with the Dubai-based business technology provider.

Tunis Air, Sudan Airways, Air Algerie, Sri Lankan, Garuda, Etihad and West Jet have all selected RAPID to manage their revenue accounting, as they seek innovative ways to streamline their businesses and reduce costs in these challenging economic times.

In Africa, Tunis Air has successfully cut over to RAPID passenger revenue accounting, the very first customer to go live on an Application Service Provider, (ASP) model. During this process, the application is hosted by Mercator in their Dubai offices and accessed by the Tunis Air revenue accounting team in Tunisia via a secure internet connection.

Sudan Airways, the national carrier of Sudan, recently selected Mercatorís RAPID passenger and cargo revenue accounting system to help the airline meet current economic challenges facing the industry. Mercator will initially provide an outsourced bureau service while simultaneously training the Sudan Airways revenue accounting team to operate the system.  Then, once the Sudan Airways team feels sufficiently confident to take over, the processing system will move from Mercator to the clientís offices in Khartoum.

Sudan Airways, which operates a fleet of 15 aircraft to 20 destinations, will benefit from several key features of the solution, including revenue maximisation through accurate, timely billing and verification and a reduction of processing costs through the enhancement of productivity.

Air Algerie has also recently gone live with RAPID Passenger and began processing data in March. Air Algerie also uses Mercator's MARS (Mercator Airline Reservation System) system and reservation data is seamlessly interfaced to RAPID. Closer to Mercatorís Dubai offices, the U.A.E.ís Etihad airline recently upgraded their platform to a higher version of RAPID.

In the Asia Pacific region there have been two successful completions of RAPID projects. Sri Lankan has migrated to a new release of the product and Garuda, the national carrier of Indonesia, has implemented both the RAPID passenger revenue accounting and RADAR - the Management Information System, (MIS) provided by Mercator.

 WestJet, Canada's leading high-value, low-cost airline, has signed up for Mercatorís RAPID Bureau Interline Solution hosted in Dubai. The airline is predicted to make significant cost savings by outsourcing the processing of passenger coupons and cargo air waybills to Mercator, smoothing the impact of production Ďspikesí on their cash reserves. The payment of a simple, single transaction fee per coupon processed by the Mercatorís Outsource Centre, assists the airline in its financial planning. The advantages for WestJet will include the swift determination of revenue, boosted productivity and efficiency, greatly reduced accounting costs and refined processes. The carrierís executives will also be armed with incisive management reports, giving them the more confidence to make tactical decisions and giving them the ability to formulate long-term strategies.
