Air Rarotonga goes live on ProfitOpt
Air Rarotonga is the domestic airline of the Cook Islands, headquartered at Rarotonga International Airport, Cook Islands. They are the latest client to go live with the RTS ProfitOpt solution to manage their passenger business. Their unique location in the mid Pacific made for an interesting implementation, both from a proximity and time zone perspective. It was also an opportunity to expand our reservations interfaces to include the Radixx system.
With the solution hosted in the RTS data center, deployment was seamless. Training was conducted through a series of remote sessions over Webex, and the interfaces were built in our India development center, giving a truly global deployment.
We are confident that the revenue optimization models along with an intuitive graphical user interface and extensive reporting capabilities that comprise the ProfitOpt solution will provide significant value to Air Rarotonga in future.
CargoProfitOpt’s Allotment Management module goes live at a major North American Carrier
A major milestone was accomplished this quarter with the continued implementation of the RTS CargoProfitOpt application at one of the largest airlines in the world from North America. RTS has been working closely with the client for the past year to determine and document the revenue management business requirements to provide an optimal solution. In mid-December 2015 we completed the integration, user acceptance testing, and deployment of the Allotment Management component of the RTS CargoProfitOpt solution into the client's production environment.
The Allotment Management module will assist this client by optimally determining the amount of contract or long-term space to be allocated to a specified station, customer, other airline or a defined allotment group. Contract or long-term space allocation is also referred to as recurring bookings, permanent bookings, blocked space, and allocations. This will allow the client to optimally provide space to both free sale and allocated space to make the most of the limited space on the aircraft improving their revenue yields.

Spot Pricing goes live
RTS has achieved another landmark with the go-live of RTS CargoPriceOpt implementation with Spot Pricing Evaluation and Automation at one of the Premier European Airlines. RTS has been working closely with the customer to analyze the historical data and to determine the best-fit model for the Spot Pricing Evaluation. The customer has completed the user acceptance testing and the solution is in production since the end of October 2015.
The Spot Pricing Module helps the sales managers and General Sales Agents (GSAs) to determine the optimal spot rate in real time taking into account of the Customer and Shipment Value allowing them to negotiate with the forwarder. This new module is seamlessly integrated with the existing Governance process to send the requests to next level of authorization based on the discounts given by the sales manager.
