Mercator, the IT division of the Emirates Group has won another contract on the Indian subcontinent to provide its revenue accounting solution, RAPID, to Air Sahara. RAPID can be offered as a stand alone passenger or cargo version, and can also be delivered as one complete package, the latter of which, Air Sahara has selected. The solution analyses the information on used tickets and air waybills to give airlines the financial and strategic information they need to compete effectively. The solution will support Air Sahara’s ambitious growth plans, helping it to realise revenues quickly and accurately, reduce revenue accounting costs and maximise productivity. “We are growing very quickly, and each year sees yet more aircraft being delivered, new destinations being inaugurated and passenger numbers going up and up. It is crucial therefore, that we do not lose sight of how our airline is performing,” said Alok Sharma, executive vice president, Air Sahara. “This new system gives us the control we need, and also gives us the clearest picture of our finances. The solution’s functionality is unmatched, and we expect RAPID to become a key part of our drive to transform Air Sahara into a highly-successful international airline,” added Sharma. Air Sahara has been flying scheduled passenger and cargo services since 1991, and serves more than 25 destinations across the subcontinent. More than 2.5 million people travelled on its modern fleet of 24 Boeing and Bombardier aircraft last year. “This deal demonstrates how RAPID’s functionality is unbeatable in the industry, as is the vast revenue accounting and airline experience of our Mercator professionals. All our airline financial solutions are fine-tuned to boost profits while keeping a lid on costs, and I am confident that Air Sahara will soon be enjoying the rewards,” said Joshua Koshy, senior vice president, IT, Emirates.
