BoTs for Airline Process Automation

AUTOMATION SET TO EMPOWER AIRLINE PROCESSES GOING FORWARD

Introduction

Numerous challenges plague the airline industry when it comes to managing business functions, especially the complex network of distribution channels. While working with various agencies to maximize sale of tickets, it is also crucial that controls are in place to ensure no gap is left between collectable and collected revenue.

 

Competing in today’s world is also about bettering margins, as much as working towards building an optimized solution which will maximize efficiency in the long run. RPA BoTs mimic human actions, and perform the same tasks faster and without the existence of potential human error. Airworthiness and Maintenance department processes can be easier to handle with RPA BoTs, helping to not utilize human intellect for dull and repetitive tasks.

Airline Revenue Accounting – Then & Now

Till recent times, manual fare audits have been the only means to ascertain huge volumes of repetitive and inadvertent errors when tallying agency revenue numbers. And with the increasing sales of airline tickets across numerous platforms, it becomes subsequently difficult for this large manual effort to be completed, on time and/or accurately. Data Analytics along with Robotic Process Automation (RPA) will drive speed, accuracy and volume, helping to achieve minimum Agent Debit Memo (ADM) and maximum revenue protection.
