Tunisair Selects Mercator’s Accounting Application Hosting Solution

Mercator, the IT division of the Dubai-based Emirates Group, has been selected by Tunisair, the national airline of Tunisia, to provide its RAPID accounting system application service provisioning hosting services to the airline.

RAPID, Mercator's airline passenger interline revenue accounting system, has been specially tailored to suit the individual business needs of the Tunisair, with Mercator hosting the entire RAPID application in its data center in Dubai.

The application will then be accessed by the Tunisair revenue accounting team from their offices in Tunis. Tunisair selected Mercator's RAPID after evaluating systems submitted by nine comparative providers.

Mohamed Smaoui, director of information technology at Tunisair, said: "There were significant business benefits for Tunisair in selecting Mercator's RAPID system. The major drivers were its ability to support Tunisair's future growth plans, revenue enhancement through accurate billing, reduced accounting costs and increased productivity."
