Oman Air picks Mercator system for cargo ops
Muscat, March 6, 2011
Oman Air has signed a multimillion dollar deal with Mercator, Emirates Group's IT services business, to automate its cargo operations.
Mercator has helped Oman Air to make major changes to its cargo operations management systems, replacing a paper-based, manual system, with a fully integrated and automated model. This move will result in the airline achieving further cost efficiencies and greater levels of productivity, and helping it to continue building its revenue streams.
Mercator deployed its internally developed Cargo application, SkyChain, in February. The application provides a solution which supports the airline in increasing productivity levels through more effective management of its cargo sales, exporting, importing and transfer activities.
The implementation of SkyChain will provide Oman Air with the required automation for its end-to-end cargo operations. The system delivers process efficiencies, providing real time flight revenue monitoring, accurate shipment pricing and tracking, optimised flight capacity management and e-freight capabilities.
“Oman Air has been using Mercator’s financial solution, Rapid, for more than four years and we are excited about adding SkyChain into our business operations,” said Mohamed Sherief Padiyath, Oman Air general manager Commercial - Cargo.-TradeArabia News Service
