The Automated Invoicing System (AIS) provides Corporate Business Travel Agents with a simplified and "hands free" method of sending out invoices and itinerary information for booked travel services to customers or clients through the Alpha Accounting System. When an agent submits a request for an invoice to be sent out, the Alpha Accounting System will in turn retrieve the appropriate information for that customer (Air, Hotel, Car Segments) and use this to generate the invoice/itinerary to be sent out to clients. This generated invoice will then be placed on queue to be picked up by the AIS process. Finally, the AIS process will pick up this invoice and send it to the appropriate customers via email. The following diagram describes this process:

Aside from the standard invoices, customers can also receive exception notifications, and notifications of a non-refundable ticket if necessary.

  • Send invoices to agents in the following formats: Standard Text Format, HTML or PDF

As part of our flagship product: Alpha Accounting System, Sector Micro Computer provides an Automated GDS Receiver Service designed to transfer and load your data from one or more GDS into the Alpha Accounting System.

Our GDS Receiver will listen for incoming data from a GDS which it will then format, merge and place as IUR files in queue to be loaded into alpha. Our GDS Receiver is designed to work with the following GDS:

  • Amadeus
  • Worldspan
  • Apollo

One of the advantages of using our GDS Receiver opposed to traditional serial communications is that it minimizes the loss of data in the event of an interrupt of service, such as a network disconnect. Our GDS receiver is also fully customizable in how IUR files are created, ranging from merging data into a single file for pickup, to what type of naming convention should be used for transferred files.

Our GDS Receiver can be used in a one-to-many, many-to-many, or many-to-one environment. For example, in a many-to-one transfer environment, multiple receivers can be used for preparing and transferring data received from both SABRE and Worldspan at the same time to a single queue to be picked up by the Alpha Loader.

Once these data files are placed in queue, the Alpha Loader, the second automated process of this Service, the GDS Loader will parse the data and store data pertaining to AIR, NON-AIR, CAR and HOTEL into the Alpha Accounting Database. The following diagram outlines how this service will work:

The objective of the Currency Exchange Rate Automation Process (SMC CERU) is to keep your accounting system database up to date with the latest currency exchange rate information, supplied by one or more trusted and authentic financial institutions via web services.

With our software, you are supplied with a list of over 100+ currency codes to retrieve exchange rates for. However you can filter out what currency codes which you don't need for your accounting system, or add new ones if you wish. You can also specify what type of web service from a financial institution you would like to use either a free web service or paid for. You may even specify the interval at which this automated process can invoke the web services for the desired exchange rate information.

The following diagram outlines how this process will work with your accounting system:
