Kingfisher Airlines has started using IBS’ iCargoNet, a Software as a Service (SaaS) version of IBS' airline Cargo Management System (CMS), iCargoGold. iCargoNet provides a unified, enterprise–wide solution to help manage the entire cargo business of KFA, from planning, sales, operations, ground handling (both inbound and outbound),Unit Load Device (ULD) management to cargo revenue accounting and revenue optimisation functions. The system enables the airline to use all the functionalities of an integrated CMS while bringing down the total cost of ownership. The implementation comes at a time when Kingfisher Airlines is seeking to grow its cargo business in the domestic market while optimising its cost of operations.
The solution offers Kingfisher Airlines the flexibility to adapt to the changing business needs of a rapidly evolving market. iCargoNet will assist Kingfisher Airlines in ensuring the profitability of its cargo business by enabling the airline to optimise the inventory of its flights and monitor capacity utilisation as well as the revenue generated by each flight as the flight builds up and before it takes off.
Rajesh Verma, executive vice president, Kingfisher Airlines, said, "iCargoNet has been implemented as a unified software solution for seamlessly managing the cargo operations of Kingfisher Airlines. It was imperative for us that our solutions provider offer us a robust and reliable solution that would give us a competitive edge and be scalable in line with our aggressive expansion plans."
"IBS' suite of next generation cargo management systems meet the needs of all players in the air cargo industry (scheduled airlines, all-cargo carriers, airports, ground handlers, integrators, forwarders and others), that can be used either as licensed or hosted options, depending on customer's choice. IBS' cargo management solutions have been developed in collaboration with six leading cargo carriers and incorporate comprehensive functionality and industry best practices, making the products globally acceptable.
Chairman and CEO, IBS Group, V K Mathews, said, "At IBS, our vision for the air transportation industry is to provide new-generation solutions that will be viable and inevitable migration options from the legacy systems that have shackled them for the past few decades. We will continue to innovate and invest in our products and service offerings, not afraid to push the envelope of change".
With the steady rise in the number of air cargo providers, IBS plans to take the solution to more players in the air cargo industry in India and globally.
