Business Environment

Revenue Accounting is a critical product for Airlines, as it ensures among others that invoicing and payments are correctly managed, between the airline and its distribution channel, or with airline partners and that the correct taxes are remitted to the governments/airports by the airlines.

After successful implementation of 1st launch partner, Saudia airlines, and British Airways last year, next big challenges for Revenue Accounting are to deliver the day 2 requirements for British Airways as well as implementing the new airlines in the pipe

The London team particularly focuses on British Airways and Alliance / Franchisee / Taxes specific requirements, as well as providing support to British Airways in their understanding of the product. It is composed of both Product Definition and Developers. The working methodology is fully agile, Scrum being used by the component team and Kanban by the maintenance team.

The solutions for Alliance / Franchisee / Taxes are fully specified in London and partly developed between Nice and London.

It covers the processing/generation of specific invoices received/sent from/to OneWorld carriers, and the User Interface to Airline’s agents (workflow based), and aims at being re-used for other OneWorld carriers subscribing to Revenue Accounting.

The team also provides support to BA during all phases of the project: functional clarification, familiarization with the product, support for their testing, coordination with Nice teams during UAT, etc.
