About Concessionaire Analyzer+
Concessionaire Analyzer+ (CA+) is a software solution that allows airport terminal operators to analyse the non-aviation retail and F&B activities of concessionaires to maximise airport revenues. CA+ allows sales data from concessionaires to be centrally collected, analysed, reported on, audited, used for invoicing and be the subject of BI, enabling airports to assess spend by passenger, carrier, route, day, time, location, and gives insight into the impact of external events (eg: delays).
This enables terminal operators to better understand retail flows and undertake more effective negotiations with both carriers and concessionaires to optimise the retail mix. CA+ acts as the central intelligence of all retailing activity in the airport terminal. It also provides facilities to maintain concessionaire contracts with complex revenue share schemes and guarantees among other elements, and the generation of concessionaire billing.
There are 4 main features to the CA+ solution:
