7 February 2011SIS P3 – ACH Annual Meeting - SIS Functional Review7 File Formats Billed Entity Integrated Settlement Billing Entity Enabling Processes Billing & Invoicing Processes Central Repository “Digital Signature” Company Enabling Processes Settlement Processes ICHACH Processes at time of Sales NFP engine ARC COMPASS™ Prorate Engine IS-WEB IS-XML IS-IDEC Usage File IS-WEB IS-XML IS-IDEC Send files (or enter online) Receive (or download) invoices Validation Format Conversion Format Conversion:  Billed Entity’s choice of format does not depend on the billing carrier’s

8 Invoice Data Input PassengerFreightNon- Transportation UATP IS-IDEC -- IS-XML IS-WEB February 2011SIS P3 – ACH Annual Meeting - SIS Functional Review8  Invoice Input Data Files can be transferred using secure FTP or secure HTTP protocols  Members also have an option of manually capturing Invoice information on IS-WEB

9 February 2011SIS P3 – ACH Annual Meeting - SIS Functional Review99 Input & Output Formats  Files (upload & download)  IS-IDEC-Passenger and Cargo  IS-XML-Passenger, Cargo, Miscellaneous and UATP  IS-WEB-All  Others – Usage File for Pax  All formats contain same fields for a given record type  Billing participant can use any format at any time (“input combination”)  Billing participant choice doesn’t affect billed participant (“format conversion”)  Billing participant may submit billing data as often as they want  Billing data files to be uploaded to IS via iiNet Record layouts and descriptions are documented in the Integrated Settlement Participant Guide (ISPG) located at:

10 February 2011SIS P3 – ACH Annual Meeting - SIS Functional Review10 File Formats – IS-IDEC  No longer data exchange file, but rather used to create an invoice and settlement file  Similar to IDEC, with enhancements:  Existing fields made mandatory (source codes, etc)  New records added (Rejection Memos, tax breakdowns, etc)  New fields added (for e-billing, additional info, etc)  Unnecessary records / fields removed (batch total records, etc)  500 byte records (instead of 160 byte)  Every carrier will need system enhancements to support IS-IDEC

11 February 2011SIS P3 – ACH Annual Meeting - SIS Functional Review11 File Formats – IS-XML  New XML format for Integrated Settlement  Based on IATA Aviation Invoice Standard, used by IATA InvoiceWorks  Identical fields and validation requirements to IS-IDEC  Every carrier will need to make system enhancements to support IS-XML  IS-IDEC vs. IS-XML is an IT decision – it is immaterial to the RA department  Potential Benefits of IS-XML  IS-XML format is more flexible and thus better than IS-IDEC for variable record structure (like Non-Transportation billings)  Potential Benefits of IS-IDEC  Relatively little system development for carriers with a sophisticated IDEC solution in place already  IS-IDEC format is more efficient (processing, storage, and internet bandwidth) than IS-XML for a fixed record structure

12 February 2011SIS P3 – ACH Annual Meeting - SIS Functional Review12 Breakdown Records  Breakdown Records have been added where necessary to provide for detailed, possibly repeating, data and to provide for large amounts of text  E.g., a coupon can have 0 or more tax breakdown records, each detailing a tax type and amount  Examples  Coupon Prime Billing breakdown records:  Tax, VAT breakdown  Breakdown records for Rejection, Billing, Credit Memos:  Reason Breakdown, Coupon Breakdown (with Tax & VAT)

13 February 2011SIS P3 – ACH Annual Meeting - SIS Functional Review13 Example Breakdowns (Pax Rejection Memo) Rejection Memo (SFI = 21) Reason Breakdown (SFI = 31) Reason Breakdown (SFI = 31) Coupon Breakdown (SFI = 32) Coupon Breakdown (SFI = 32) Coupon Breakdown (SFI = 32) Tax Breakdown (SFI = 33) Tax Breakdown (SFI = 33) Tax Breakdown (SFI = 41) VAT Breakdown (SFI = xx) VAT Breakdown (SFI = xx) VAT Breakdown (SFI = 34)

14 February 2011SIS P3 – ACH Annual Meeting - SIS Functional Review14 IS-WEB  Web-based user interface to create and receive invoices and records  Identical fields and validation requirements to IS-IDEC and IS-XML  Validation in real-time minimizes possibility of later validation errors  Potential Benefits  The web interface is hosted by IATA, so no system development is required by carriers  Potential Negatives  More internet bandwidth will be required than file formats, and the connection will have to be stable  IS transaction fees 25% higher  Not an alternative to a Revenue Accounting system

15 February 2011SIS P3 – ACH Annual Meeting - SIS Functional Review15 Validation

16 February 2011SIS P3 – ACH Annual Meeting - SIS Functional Review16 Validation Billed Entity Integrated Settlement Billing Entity Enabling Processes Billing & Invoicing Processes Central Repository “Digital Signature” Company Enabling Processes Settlement Processes ICHACH Processes at time of Sales NFP engine ARC COMPASS™ Prorate Engine IS-WEB IS-XML IS-IDEC Usage File IS-WEB IS-XML IS-IDEC Send files (or enter online) Receive (or download) invoices Validation Format Conversion Validation:  Guarantees links between records (e.g. 2 nd and 1 st RMs)  Enforces timeframes and “order” (1 st RM -> 2 nd RM -> 3 rd RM)  Ensures file is properly formed  Other validations

17 February 2011SIS P3 – ACH Annual Meeting - SIS Functional Review17 Sanity Check First, Then Validation  Files will go through and must pass, “Sanity Check” before moving to the next, more rigorous, “Validation” process  Sanity Check will:  Check for formatting issues  Validation will:  If errors encountered, file will continue to go through Validation process and report all errors  In IS-WEB  with validation error report (in detail) as per Member Profile  Take up to 4 hours to complete  CAUTION: Be sure to finalize your invoices allowing enough time for validation to complete and time to correct any errors before the submission deadline (same as Recap Sheet due date and time)

18 February 2011SIS P3 – ACH Annual Meeting - SIS Functional Review18 Examples of Validation  Format Rules  Ensures data types (e.g. numeric/alphanumeric), length, etc as defined  Correct Values  e.g. Settlement method cannot be “ACH” if both airlines are only ICH members  Mandatory Fields  Source Code, Ticket Issuing Airline, Coupon Number, etc  Rejection & Correspondence Timeframes and Order Enforced  1 st RM  2 nd RM  3 rd RM  Correspondence  Mandatory Breakdown Records Are Present  Tax breakdown records are present if coupon tax is populated and the breakdown record sums match the tax field  Billing entity will be notified of validation results  Invoices (and possibly files) failing validation will not go any further

19 February 2011SIS P3 – ACH Annual Meeting - SIS Functional Review19 After Validation  Validated invoice billing totals sent to the ACH for settlement  Clearing House will combine the IS billing totals with the Recap Sheet billing totals and settle the combined total CAUTION: Do not add IS billing totals to a Recap Sheet or it will be billed to the other participant TWICE  The billed participant may retrieve their billed and settled invoices data via the IS Web (At period end – as per IS Calendar)  The billed participant will be able to retrieve their billed data files (At period end – as per IS Calendar)  The billed participant will receive a billing file at the end of each period instead of one time per month

20 February 2011SIS P3 – ACH Annual Meeting - SIS Functional Review20 Correspondence

21 February 2011SIS P3 – ACH Annual Meeting - SIS Functional Review21 Correspondence Billed Airline Integrated Settlement Billing Airline Enabling Processes Billing & Invoicing Processes Central Repository “Digital Signature” Company Enabling Processes Settlement Processes ICHACH Processes at time of Sales NFP engine ARC COMPASS™ Prorate Engine IS-WEB IS-XML IS-IDEC Usage File IS-WEB IS-XML IS-IDEC Enter Correspondence (including attachments) Receive Correspondence (including attachments) Validation

22 February 2011SIS P3 – ACH Annual Meeting - SIS Functional Review22 Correspondence  Correspondence can include an “authority to bill” flag which identifies when the authority to bill has been granted  Not tied to settlement periods like transactions in Integrated Settlement – real-time and similar to but via IS-WEB interface  Notifications sent when Correspondence has been created and sent to you  Additional notifications sent when time limits are set to expire  Validation ensures  no “cross-over” – correspondence  can only be in reply to another correspondence (or 3 rd -stage RM Pax and Freight or 2 nd stage RM ACH non transport)  cannot be out-of-order

23 February 2011SIS P3 – ACH Annual Meeting - SIS Functional Review23 Supporting Documents

24 February 2011SIS P3 – ACH Annual Meeting - SIS Functional Review24 Supporting Documents  Supporting documents can be attached to most record types (including Pax Prime Billings, Freight, Non-Transportation)  Two types of supporting documents:  Electronic Presentation - Supporting document that is digital but not in a defined and structured format. The document might be a PDF file or an image that a computer can read but not extract data from.  E-Electronic Document – Supporting document that is in a defined and structured format which can be parsed by a computer. Example formats are IDEC, XML, or CSV.

25 February 2011SIS P3 – ACH Annual Meeting - SIS Functional Review25 Supporting Documents – With IS Billed Airline Integrated Settlement Billing Airline Enabling Processes Billing & Invoicing Processes Central Repository “Digital Signature” Company Enabling Processes Settlement Processes ICHACH Processes at time of Sales NFP engine ARC COMPASS™ Prorate Engine IS-WEB IS-XML IS-IDEC Usage File IS-WEB IS-XML IS-IDEC Batch Transfer e.g. FTP Batch Transfer e.g. FTP

26 February 2011SIS P3 – ACH Annual Meeting - SIS Functional Review26 Central Repository & Supporting Docs  What?  Any type of accepted supporting document (image, PDF, etc)  How long?  As long as the data is operationally required  When?  Before or after the associated record is uploaded (with “pending attachments” flag, which allows for notifications if not uploaded)S

27 February 2011SIS P3 – ACH Annual Meeting - SIS Functional Review27 Audit Trail

28 February 2011SIS P3 – ACH Annual Meeting - SIS Functional Review28 Audit Trail & Rejection History With operational data being stored:  Future records (e.g. rejections) don’t need supporting documents re-attached  IS-WEB can be used to search and take action on previous billings:  Search & browse through all records for which your carrier billed or was billed  Drill down through tickets, coupons, tax breakdowns, correspondences, etc  View audit trail of linked correspondences, rejections, and prime billings  Find outgoing correspondences that haven’t been responded to  Go directly to appropriate action (create RM, create correspondence, create billing memo)

29 February 2011SIS P3 – ACH Annual Meeting - SIS Functional Review29 Member Profile

30 February 2011SIS P3 – ACH Annual Meeting - SIS Functional Review30 Bringing it All Together  Member Administration will contain centralized preferences for your company:  User Administration with the ability to create users and customize user permissions  Member Profile to set your own preferences, such as:  Who to contact for IS alerts, file validation failures, etc  Rules as to how IS will operate for your company (apply digital signatures, allow corrections, etc)  Processing Dashboard will provide a centralized overview of all submitted files and their statuses throughout the Integrated Settlement

31 February 2011SIS P3 – ACH Annual Meeting - SIS Functional Review31 Key Differences for Freight & Non- Transport

32 February 2011SIS P3 – ACH Annual Meeting - SIS Functional Review32 Key Differences for Freight  All freight record types also represented in IS-IDEC, IS-XML, and IS-WEB  The IATA e-freight project will introduce e-electronic formats (structured data) for these supporting documents over time  Before then, carriers can bilaterally decide to use e-electronic formats, or to not transfer supporting documents at all

33 February 2011SIS P3 – ACH Annual Meeting - SIS Functional Review33 Key Differences for Non-Transportation  IS-IDEC cannot be used for Non-Transportation billings (only IS-XML and IS-WEB)  All Non-Transportation and UATP billings are uniquely defined by a charge category and charge code, allowing for routing to the correct person/department, automatic posting, or even automatic reconciliation  UATP: carriers can opt-in to a service, where UATP-ATCAN will send the billing (via IS-XML) to SIS on behalf of the billing carriers.  Non-Transportation and UATP use Rejection Invoices (not Memos) and Credit Notes (not Memos)  Examples: Charge CategoryCharge Code GroundHandlingBaggage GroundHandlingCargo PartnerAllianceFF Miles
