IBS Software partners with CargoAi to boost air cargo revenue
IBS Software is offering its iCargo customers the opportunity to increase their reach to the market and thereby scale their cargo revenues through a new partnership with CargoAi. By partnering with CargoAi, they can extend their presence in new and existing markets by leveraging on digital sales and distribution services.
The SaaS solutions provider has been working with CargoAi since July 2020 to build a rich integration between iCargo and CargoAI using a scalable, API based architecture. “Through this partnership, CargoAi and IBS Software have invested in creating platform-level integration to give our customers more choices on channels to digitally connect with their clients, faster time-to-market for such capabilities, and to do so with very little effort,” says Ashok Rajan, SVP & head of Cargo and Logistics, IBS Software. He adds: “We believe that innovation can be fast-tracked by partnering with companies like CargoAi bringing in new and improved ways of doing business like in sales and distribution, which is still very antiquated and legacy-based in the air cargo industry.”
Keen to offer a digital ecosystem to its customers, IBS Software is making its motto of 'Partnering for Innovation' a reality. With this API based integration between platforms, airlines have to only turn on the switch for e-bookings from all over the world to reach their system. The process couldn’t be easier for airlines – only a few days of tests are required between the platforms to get on board with CargoAi and no expensive bespoke IT development or complex system integration projects is required to deliver this capability.
“The integration currently covers real-time e-booking and e-quoting, flight availability searches and shipment tracking. Lots of other possibilities exist, but this partnership is already showing just how essential synergies are in order to make digitalization accessible to all stakeholders in our industry, a goal that we share with IBS,” says Matthieu Petot, CEO of CargoAi.Read also: IBS Software signs multi-year contract with British Airways
