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.
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.
