Abstract End-to-end strategic planning, improving revenues, and streamlining internal business processes—NIIT Technologies can help you do all this and more. After working for over 20 years in the airline industry with more than 50 airlines, we have achieved economies of scales within limited budget and delivery cycles. How do we make it happen? New ideas that manifest as cost-effective and innovative systems, and more value that is delivered through completely unified, highly efficient, state-of-the-art solutions.

Rising above the Clouds

The airline business, which was profitable till the mid-90s, is now one of the most complicated, competitive, and vulnerable businesses in the world. Rising fuel prices, tougher security measures by individual governments, and difficult global conditions have put pressure on airlines to work hard and operate within the cost parameters

Demands of the fast-evolving global travel market have also made the business of airline revenue accounting complex. There is tremendous pressure to control revenue leakages, and record, monitor, analyze, and collect all types of revenues. Thus, it becomes imperative for airlines to streamline revenue accounting functions and develop a highly effective solution.

NIIT Technologies’ deep domain expertise and understanding of the airline industry has made it easier to offer an unmatched value proposition through MonaLisa Airline Solutions Suite to clients in the airline space. With an enviable track record backed by Six Sigma-driven process maturity rigor, we manage the revenue accounting needs of numerous airlines.

We can run virtually all types of revenue reports our Sr. Management is asking for, and if we have a reporting need that isn’t already available in the system, the MonaLisa Support team always gladly assists in creating customized reports or queries for us.
