Until now, airlines had limited choices for better ways to manage EDIFACT-compliance procedures
Halifax, NS (PRWEB) February 27, 2006
SecureTransit, Inc.™, a leading provider of Advance Passenger Information System (APIS) software products for processing airline EDIFACT documents, today launched APIScontrol™, a new software product that improves the ability of airlines to comply with United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) regulations for flights entering, leaving or over flying US airspace. CBP-certified APIScontrol facilitates capture, validation and submission of EDIFACT documents to US, Canadian and Mexican agencies via an Internet browser. APIScontol’s tracking, reporting and notification features make it the most advanced product for passenger security validation in the airline marketplace.
“Until now, airlines had limited choices for better ways to manage EDIFACT-compliance procedures,” said Ted Myllmaki, SecureTRANSIT’s EVP of Sales and Business Development. “APIScontrol completes required passenger and crew identity vetting processes before flights leave the ground. Quickly and accurately APIScontrol facilitates the matching of passenger and crew manifests against the most current NO FLY and SELECTEE government watch lists. This process creates a high level of flight security, ensures CBP compliance, and avoids potential fines.”
By leveraging low-cost Internet connectivity, SecureTRANSIT makes validation technology available to every corner of an airline’s operation. Highly scalable .NET-based APIScontrol runs in hosted and enterprise configurations from both handhelds and terminals. In addition, APIScontrol integrates with a number of other airline software packages including Sabre® FliteTRAC™ and CrewTRAC®, and SITA applications. APIScontrol also includes a full set of management reports and a report writer.
A number of pricing packages are available, including ones for small and mid-sized airlines and cargo-only operations. For more information, visit http://www.securetransit.com.
