Interfaces

Because no two airlines have the same systems in place, Almira was designed in a way where it can be easily customized to interface with any of the airline’s existing systems.

  • From within the financial system information may be exchanged about Suppliers’ account, foreign currency exchange rates, GL account, chart of accounts and any other details already existing.
  • From the airline’s flight operations system details of operated flights and related statistics may be imported.
  • Flight schedules are imported from the airline’s flight scheduling system through standard transfer files.
  • Passenger, cargo and mail revenue may be imported from a revenue accounting system. If the revenue is not already analysed by flight, Almira will be able to distribute the revenue based on traffic related statistics.
  • Budgets and provisions and operating statistics are transferred to the financial system through a transparent interface for further processing and analysis.
  • DOC related invoices may be posted through Almira. The system will automatically create the invoice in the Purchase Ledger and post any adjustments to General Ledger.

Almira-Spider

Although Almira can be used as a standalone application, it was designed to interface with the airline’s financial system. Almira can be customised to interface with any financial system that runs on a relational database and is capable of interfacing with several external systems to synchronize existing data, eliminating input duplication.

For example, when a new DOC supplier account is opened in the financial system, all its relevant information is immediately available to Almira through a seamless interface. Similarly, direct operating costs and flight statistics can be transferred to the financial system according to the airline’s requirements.
