Unisys, Kale Consultants Combine Air Cargo Revenue Accounting Services

Unisys Corporation has announced that it will be offering the AMBER Cargo Revenue Accounting solution from Kale Consultants as part of its air cargo portfolio. Under the terms of the agreement reached by the two organisations, Unisys will offer AMBER as a hosted service and as a licenced solution to further strengthen its Logistics Management System (LMS) and related Hosting and Integration Services (HIS).

"This new relationship addresses the demand of clients for proven and open solutions that can be delivered as a hosted Web-based service," said Christopher Shawdon, vice president and partner, Logistics Solutions for Unisys. "This relationship gives our clients new levels of visibility to financial information from the time of booking through delivery and invoicing to help improve profitability and service."

Kale's Cargo Revenue Accounting solution, AMBER, provides airlines with financial control and automation of their revenue accounting process.

We have been working together for some time to ensure that the integration of our two solutions is technically and functionally seamless. The combination of the Unisys Logistics Management System and Kale’s AMBER will result in an end-to-end cargo solution. The many benefits to airlines include the potential for: early recognition of revenue, operational cost savings, and greater levels of data integrity – all in a cohesive delivery model."
