Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) has chosen the Concessionaire Analyzer+ (CA+) software solution to better manage its concession-based commercial business and to help improve their non-aeronautical revenues.
The agency has awarded a five-year contract to software firm Concessionaire Analyzer+ (CA+) together with Eastra Solutions Ltd, a Nairobi-based solutions provider, to provide the revenue platform.
The contract is for supply and maintenance of an integrated point-of-sale solution to help collect detailed transactional sales data from firms doing business at airports. It will also allow KAA to enforce revenue-share agreements already in place at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).
“Our solution will enable KAA to collect transactional sales data from each concessionaire” said CA+. “All sales data is then integrated into a single platform, where sales can be correlated with concession contracts, flight data and other operational information.
‘‘This will provide KAA with a real time level of insight never before possible, allowing them to assess sales patterns and boost their non-aeronautical revenues through better concession management.”
“The solution will enable KAA to enhance non-aeronautical revenues by having clear visibility of sales transactions on a real-time basis,” said Kasaine ole Pertet, KAA general manager ICT.
KAA’s business model has shifted to areas of revenue generation other than from aviation related proceeds.
