SIS – Materials – Pax Prime Billing Webcast

introduction to sis general webcast
Introduction to SIS (General Webcast)
  • “Integrated Settlement” is based on the principles of completely paperless billing, invoicing, and settlement
  • Benefits include:
    • Data quality improvements to the billed carrier
    • Billing carrier’s upload format doesn’t impact billed carrier’s download format
    • Reduction in paper and courier fees and internal supply chain (paper handling) costs
    • Automation & Optional Services
    • Quicker cash flow due to reduced rejection timeframes
  • ‘Airline Profile’ to be a centralized database for all IS options and permissions
  • IS features discussed are subject to change

SIS – Materials – Pax Prime Billing Webcast

non core functionality
Non-core Functionality
  • Core functionality of SIS enables paperless billing and settlement.
  • The non-core functionality is considered by the SIS Working Groups to be “value-added services”; its final inclusion is dependent upon implementation costs and airline demand and will likely be billed to carriers separately, based on usage.
  • Non-core functionality is detailed in the relevant presentations (Pax prime, Pax non-prime, Cargo/Miscellaneous)

SIS – Materials – Pax Prime Billing Webcast

input formats
Input Formats
  • Files (upload & download)
    • IS-IDEC
    • IS-XML
  • IS-WEB
  • Others – Usage File for Pax
  • All contain same fields and record structure
  • Billing carrier can use any format at any time (“input combination”)
  • Billing carrier’s choice doesn’t affect billed carrier (“format conversion”)
  • Available formats depend on functionality (see other webcasts)
  • This presentation applies to Passenger, Cargo, and Miscellaneous

SIS – Materials – Pax Prime Billing Webcast

file formats is idec
File Formats – IS-IDEC
  • No longer data exchange file, but rather used to create an invoice and settlement file
  • Similar to IDEC, with enhancements:
    • Existing fields made mandatory (source codes, etc)
    • New records added (Rejection Memos, tax breakdowns, etc)
    • New fields added (for e-billing, additional info, etc)
    • Unnecessary records / fields removed (batch total records, etc)
  • 400 byte records (instead of 160 byte)

SIS – Materials – Pax Prime Billing Webcast

file formats is xml
File Formats – IS-XML
  • New XML format for Integrated Settlement
  • Based on IATA Aviation Invoice Standard, developed by the Airport Invoice Task Force (AITF) and currently used by IATA InvoiceWorks
  • Identical fields and validation requirements to IS-IDEC

SIS – Materials – Pax Prime Billing Webcast

is web
IS-WEB
  • Web-based user interface to create, read, and delete invoices and records
  • Identical fields and validation requirements to IS-IDEC and IS-XML
    • Validation in real-time minimizes possibility of later validation errors
  • View and print records in a standard format
  • Same system as for other web-based services (Audit Trail, airline profile updates, etc)
    • Extensive user access controls (administrator grants view/edit and upload of supporting documents per user per area)

SIS – Materials – Pax Prime Billing Webcast

breakdown records
Breakdown Records
  • Breakdown Records have been added where necessary to provide for detailed, possibly repeating, data and to provide for large amounts of text
  • E.g., a coupon can have 0 or more tax breakdown records, each detailing a tax type and amount
  • Coupon (C3 on Pax IDEC) breakdown records:
    • Tax, VAT breakdown
  • Breakdown records for Rejection, Billing, Credit Memos:
    • Reason Breakdown, Coupon Breakdown (with Tax & VAT)
  • Breakdown records for ‘Other Charges’ (Cargo only)

validation
Validation
  • Validation will be necessary in the Integrated Settlement environment as quality data is essential:
    • No paper invoice or “back up” to determine what the electronic data means
    • Uploaded data is no longer a data exchange file in support of a paper invoice, but rather the base for invoicing and settlement
  • Some existing fields will continue to be passed through the system without validation for use on a bilateral basis

SIS – Materials – Pax Prime Billing Webcast

examples of validation
Examples of Validation
  • Format Rules
    • Ensures data types (e.g. numbers), length, etc
  • Correct Values
    • Settlement method is one of five values (e.g. ICH or ACH), but also depends on which clearing house the carrier is a member of
  • Mandatory Fields
    • Source Code, Ticket Issuing Airline, Coupon Number, etc
  • Rejection & Correspondence Timeframes and Order Enforced
    • 1st RM  2nd RM  3rd RM  Correspondence
  • Mandatory Breakdown Records Are Present
    • Tax breakdown records are present if coupon tax is populated and the breakdown record sums match the tax field

SIS – Materials – Pax Prime Billing Webcast

results of validation
Results of Validation
  • Timeline
    • Will occur within a maximum of 6 hours after submission
    • Will also occur after closure if the file was submitted on time (but failures can’t be fixed in that period)
  • Notification of validation results sent to submitting carrier
  • Success
    • Files go on to next step of IS (e.g. e-invoicing & settlement)
  • Failure (options and permissions to be set in profile)
    • Invoice or entire file is held until corrected
      • Web Correction (IS-WEB interface)
      • Delete (then, optionally, resubmit)

SIS – Materials – Pax Prime Billing Webcast

other file format features
Other File Format Features
  • 20 character “airline’s own use” field (only for Pax)
  • Value signs (+/-) where appropriate
