He adds: “We believe that innovation can be fast-tracked by partnering with companies like CargoAi bringing in new and improved ways of doing business like in sales and distribution, which is still very antiquated and legacy-based in the air cargo industry.”
Keen to offer a ‘digital ecosystem’ to its customers, IBS Software is making its motto of ‘Partnering for Innovation” a reality. With this API based integration between platforms, airlines using only have to turn on the switch for e-bookings from all over the world to reach their system. The process couldn’t be easier for airlines – only a few days of tests are required between the platforms to get on board with CargoAi and no expensive bespoke IT development or complex system integration projects is required to deliver this capability. All the work has been done ahead of time by the two partners.
“The integration currently covers real-time e-booking and e-quoting, flight availability searches and shipment tracking. Lots of other possibilities exist, but this partnership is already showing just how essential synergies are in order to make digitalization accessible to all stakeholders in our industry, a goal that we share with IBS,” says Matthieu Petot, CEO of CargoAi.
