WNS (Holdings) Limited has signed a six-year contract with SAS Airlines, an airline company in Scandinavia. This new contact is a renewal of WNS’ existing five-year agreement to provide passenger revenue accounting services for SAS.
Under the terms of the new contract, WNS will transition SAS from an in-house revenue accounting system to the Sirax AirFinance Platform. The new financial management system, combined with WNS’ process expertise, staff training capabilities and technical support, will enable SAS to manage over 40 million tickets annually and is expected to enable SAS to reduce spending on revenue accounting. Once the implementation is complete, WNS will deliver the full suite of services critical to revenue accounting accuracy, including sales accounting, inward and outward billing, coupon matching, refunds and fare audits.
“When we decided to move to the new Sirax platform, we had the option to change providers but decided to continue our relationship with WNS. WNS has both the industry knowledge and technical capabilities to ensure a smooth transition without disrupting our current revenue accounting operations. This allows us to deliver our weekly and monthly forecasts on time, which is particularly important given the current industry climate,” said Steen Wulff, director, passenger revenue accounting, SAS Airlines. “Over the last five years, WNS has operated as an extension of our business, demonstrating a strong commitment to our success, and we look forward to expanding our partnership.”
“Whether delivering services through the current SAS system or Sirax AirFinance, WNS has the expertise to work with a broad spectrum of passenger revenue accounting platforms, customising processes to meet specific needs,” said Eric Selvadurai, managing director, WNS, Europe. “We are pleased to continue our relationship with SAS Airlines, automating and transforming their revenue accounting operations.”
