IBS Software Services Recent Developments
In January 2018, Airline IT solutions specialist IBS Software has linked a multi-year contract with Lebanon’s flag carrier Middle East Airlines to implement its iCargo solution to manage the cargo movement of the airlines worldwide. IBS’ widely acclaimed software was selected for its unique capability to provide a single unified platform to manage all cargo business needs; from worldwide sales, commercial and capacity management to handling operations at their operational nerve center – the Beirut hub - and to fully integrated billing, invoicing, accounting and interline processing.
The selection of IBS and iCargo is the culmination of an intense market scan and selection process, spanning over a year. The implementation of iCargo will help MEA to truly transform their cargo business through the definition of new sales and capacity management processes, smarter workflow-based decision making, accelerated and fully digitized flow of information between sales, operations and revenue accounting and most importantly, allow a redesign of its business process by aligning to industry best practices.
In Q4 2019, IBS Software has launched an integrated revenue management system at Korean Air to Boost Cargo Profitability. IBS Software’s iCargo platform has overhauled Korean Air cargo pricing model by deploying an integrated revenue management system, to improve yields and boost profitability. An industry first, the solution provides intelligent, intuitive analysis and algorithms, fully integrated to the core sales and booking system that delivers unrivaled insight into critical commercial operations – allowing Korean Air to determine the selling price of capacity and ensure maximum profitability per shipment carried.

IBS Software Services Market Opportunities, M&A and Geo Expansions
Based on its recent acquisitions and recent customer wins, IBS has continued to make inroads into its core verticals from cargo to passenger transportation. Designing systems for travel and transportation operators to enhance customer experience will continue to be a key component of IBS product portfolio.
IBS acquired US-based Hotel Booking Solutions Incorporated (HBSi), a provider of IT solutions to the hospitality industry. The acquisition added customers including Starwood, Harrahs, Raffles, Ramada, Fairmont and Kerzner. It also cemented IBS’ relationship with Expedia, Orbitz and Travelocity on the distribution side. That followed IBS’ purchase of Bangalore-based Moveo Systems Ltd, a developer of passenger management systems for airports.
IBS Software Services Risks and Challenges
IBS’ migration to the Cloud is a work in progress especially for IBS, which has invested heavily in its professional services organization.
IBS Software Services Ecosystem, Partners, Resellers and SI
IBSx has strategic partnerships with IBM, CTI, Transport Research Laboratory, Oracle, Microsoft, HP and Intel. In October 2018, IBS Software entered into an agreement with China’s Anton Oilfield Services, to streamline the movement of people and material in the latter’s oilfield in Majnoon, Iraq.
iLogistics, IBS’ cloud-based next-generation oil & gas logistics management solution, will enable Anton to significantly improve airport & infield logistics efficiencies, enhance end-to-end operational visibility, optimize the safety of staff & contractors while adhering to regulatory compliances. Real-time fuel tracking & reconciliation, optimized waste life-cycle management, improved camp bed utilization and predictive analytics are some of the additional benefits that Anton Oilfield Services would be well-positioned to enjoy post the implementation of the solution.
In June 2020, cargo.one and IBS Software affirmed strategic partnership with proven integration, giving airlines seamless access to cargo.one’s rapidly growing customer base. The companies have been working together to create custom integrations for leading airlines, including Etihad Cargo and Nippon Cargo Airlines, to successfully help them to further develop their digital distribution capabilities. In 2020, cargo.one has already displayed hundreds of thousands of bookable offers for airlines running IBS iCargo, without the use of a standardized plug and play solution.
