Accenture offers air Cargo software with flexible Operations
May 6, 2015(STAT):- Accenture released a new version of its Air Cargo Suite software with advanced capabilities that can help air cargo carriers become more flexible, competitive and efficient through streamlined operations and data integration. The entire suite is now also available for delivery as a service, enabling carriers of all sizes to take advantage of a robust cargo management solution while retaining the agility and cost benefits of SaaS. Delivering Accenture Air Cargo software as a service, including Reservations, Routing, Price and Operations software, provides a cost-effective, simplified way to improve workflows and help reduce revenue leakage with a scalable, low-risk solution. The new delivery model is especially helpful for small and midsize air cargo carriers who are often faced with fewer in-house resources to focus on technology. New and enhanced functionality within the Accenture Air Cargo Suite includes streamlined planning and management of the cargo process, from initial quote to delivery. This includes:
- New flight planning capabilities for easier planning of flights by allowing users to offload, re-assign and handle priority shipment in the best possible manner to enhance flight utilization and revenue.
- Air waybill control features to control invoice accuracy. The AWB control capability automates the billing process and monitors reconciliation of shipment details at multiple stages. A built-in workflow process offers the flexibility to configure a reconciliation mechanism and verify that the correct rates and charges are applied to each shipment.
- Product definition that empowers customer service officers to more easily upsell additional products or services. This capability provides visibility of all relevant value-added services for easy reference.
