Concessionaire Analyzer+ wins International Airport Review’s Revenue Generation Award
Pioneering software from Concessionaire Analyzer+ which allows airports to control, manage, analyse and ultimately boost their non-aeronautical revenues through a modular solution, has been recognised by winning the inaugural International Airport Review Revenue Generation Award.
The software covers commercial contract management, revenue calculation and billing, property and utilities management, concessionaire sales data capture, and business intelligence and dashboards. The software enables airports to measure their revenue performance with real-time capabilities, to understand trends, influence tactics and maximise their potentials – all through a central online portal.
One of the comments from the Awards judging panel was: “Concessionaire Analyzer+ should be commended for its innovative solutions aimed at maximising non-aeronautical revenues.”
The Revenue Calculation and Billing function of the software enables airports to automatically calculate revenues due and bill these to concessions, optionally integrating with the airport’s ERP system.
Properties and Utilities can also be centrally managed through the CA+ portal, providing facilities for better management of property leases including office space, hangars, stores and more, with billing for water, electricity, communications and other services incorporated into the system.
In addition, CA+ provides airports with the possibility to Collect Sales Data from concessionaires, offering a range of technical options for airports to choose from. These start from data entry via the CA+ portal, either by the commercial team or by the concessionaires themselves, to more fully automated processes, collecting transactional level data, whilst allowing concessionaires to continue to use their existing POS solutions.
This sales data then provides a level of Business Intelligence never before possible, with CA+’s strong BI and analytics capabilities, enabling airports to better understand sales and revenue patterns in order to boost their performance.
By correlating sales data with passenger and flight information, as well as people counting solutions, airports are able to visualise their commercial performance through dashboards and reports based on their chosen KPIs. On the fly, airports can analyse sales and revenues per passenger by flight, destination, terminal, product category, shop category and much more.
On receiving the award, John de Giorgio, Director of CA Plus Ltd., said: “It is undoubtedly a great achievement for the team to obtain recognition for all the hard work that goes into creating and supporting a world-class solution that makes a difference to airports’ revenues and economic sustainability. It has been quite a journey for the CA+ team who have excelled in providing an innovative revenue generation solution for airports worldwide.”
Chris Warrington, VP for Gentrack’s Airport Division, added: “This award underscores why Gentrack acquired CA+, an innovative platform that is defining new methods of generating additional revenue within airports today. It is precisely this style of innovation that is critical to Gentrack’s Airport Division, as we build out our operational platform for tomorrow’s airports.”
CA+ is currently operational in airports of all sizes in Europe, Africa, Latin-America and the Caribbean, with a strong growing interest in Australia and North America. The solution is well positioned for global growth, capitalising on the increasing need for airports to growth their non-aeronautical business – a revenue stream that accounts for a large percentage of airport profitability and on which airports continue to rely heavily in order to run their operations.
CA+ is a ground-breaking solution in the airport world, ultimately providing airports with a holistic and modular solution for airport concession management with a view to improving efficiencies and boosting airport non-aeronautical revenues.
