Unisys, JR Technologies partner to develop NDC solution for airlines

Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) has announced an agreement with JR Technologies (JRT) to develop a joint approach to serving the New Distribution Capability (NDC) needs of the airline industry, the company said.

The combined JRT offer management system (OfMS) and Unisys AirCore Order Manager provide airlines both flexibility and speed toward a retail selling and servicing environment. The Unisys-JRT approach combines the two solutions required for successful airline adoption of NDC: the ability to create, communicate and manage product offering (OfMS) and, once an offer is selected, a solution to manage the order (AirCore Order Manager).

OfMS combines comprehensive shopping and merchandizing capabilities. Bundling and un-bundling of fares and ancillaries are optimized by applying sophisticated business rules, providing a wide range of products and services to offer, and then order through integration with AirCore´s Order Manager system.

Unisys AirCore Order Manager provides the complete master source of all passenger travel and servicing information and delivers a full omni-channel retail environment of master order control and servicing.

JR Technologies is a thought leader in airline retailing and New Distribution Capabilities (NDC).
