Benefits: better Costs control

Adria explored the market looking for a already tested software to improve its business processes, especially in Costs management, Budget calculation and New routes study.

The Slovenian company chose Atennea Air, Quonext Tourism’ solution for Airlines industry. The reasons were clear: it is a vertical solution built on Microsoft Dynamics NAV with a lot of experience in this industry, and also, as Iztok Franko (IT & Marketing Director at Adria Airways) states: “the standard solution met all our needs, with minimal developments. Being built on Microsoft’s platform and 100% communicating with NAV also helped that our employees adopted it in a fast and easy way.”

Atennea Air installation in Adria Airways only took 4 months in 2011, from February to June. The airline currently operates at full capacity with the following Atennea Air modules:

  • Commercial
  • Contracts
  • Invocing
  • Flight Reports

Atennea Air allows Adria Airways to manage its costs much easier and faster than with its previous system: Microsoft Dynamics NAV and Atennea Air are integrated, allowing communication and information analysis. It also has greater control of the operational charter and costs of charter and scheduled flights, obtaining accurate results.

The IT & Marketing Director at Adria Airways also stands out the agility and speed when controlling received invoices: “We can import vendor invoice specifications from different data formats. At the moment we import over 30% of invoice specifications (detailed data about costs of each leg). The possibility of different types of budgeting is also very useful – we simulate many options.”

Quonext, the most reliable partner

With Quonext, Adria Airways has a technological partner in which it can trust: it has always met the airline needs in the most fast and professional way. The first example was the implementation process, which only lasted 4 months.

They listened to our needs and advised us”. Referring to the Support Service, he stands: “if we need it, we always get good services”.
