NDC in Practice Airline Conference
Chania, Crete 27-29 September, 2016
JR Technologies has developed and delivered the industry’s first live NDC platform for Insel Air. We created this conference to share our experiences and show how an NDC platform can enhance and transform the business of running an airline. NDC enables agility and rapid time to market, it ensures a competitive advantage. It requires certain integrated tools that are difficult to build within the current PSS infrastructure. A new type of technology platform is needed: the JR Technologies NDC platform. We invite you to see it in action.
Who should attend?
This is an ‘airlines only’ event. We are inviting commercial, marketing, and distribution strategy decision makers as well as revenue managers and pricing experts.
Top 10 reasons why you should attend:
1. Your airline is working on an NDC strategy and you want to learn more.
2. Your airline has started developing certain tools towards NDC and you want to see the full picture.
3. You want to see real systems, not power point presentations.
4. You want to understand costs, implementation strategies, timelines
5. You already know that an NDC transformation is quite complex, so you want to know where to start and why.
6. Learn the truth about airline retailing and how the proper tools will give you a competitive lead.
7. Learn how your competitors’ limited distribution capabilities can be leveraged to your advantage.
8. Learn about various approaches to an NDC strategy and how each approach impacts de-commoditization.
9. Understand the opportunities offered by One Order, that make your business leaner and more agile.
10. Location, Crete is ideal in September, not too hot, not too cold. We have squeezed some time into the agenda to enjoy the island and selected a conference hall in the old port surrounded by some of the best restaurants on the island. Just watch this video. The images speak louder than words.
