    Assuming you have at least one partner that is an early adopter…

     Go-live is P4 of September 2011
         You will begin to receive billings through IS, but you still receive the
           

     Expected IS mandate is April 2013

     Sept 2011 – 2nd and 3rd RMs via SIS
 2011                                                                                        2013

Go-live,
 RMs

    You received an RM via IS and wish to reject (or initiate/continue
      correspondence)
        As per Revenue Accounting Manual rules, you must continue all rejections and
         correspondence via IS
        Some of your partners are likely to migrate rejections and correspondence as quickly
         as possible
        If you haven’t migrated these types yet, you’ll need to log into IS-WEB and create the
         billing online

    Dec 2011 – No longer receive all paper

         3 months

Go-live,             No More
 RMs                  Paper
    Your partner migrated some billing types to IS 3 months ago
        A billing carrier can stop sending paper copies of invoices they’ve been sending
         through IS for at least 3 months
            If you haven’t migrated these types yet, you’ll need to log into IS-WEB and
              download the billing data (invoices, coupon listings, supporting documents, etc)
            Otherwise, you will see only the claim in the ICH F3 – no invoice as you know
              it today

    Mar 2012 – Must bill some partners via IS
 2011                                           2012                                                 2013

Go-live,             No More           Must bill via IS
 RMs                  Paper

    Your partner completely migrated a billing category 6 months ago
     A rule will be in place that disallows its partners (ie, you) from submitting claims
      in that category via the ICH WEB*
               The participant could choose to make exceptions – but why would it want to?
               Any claim would have to go through IS, and include the relevant coupon listings,
                supporting documents, etc – even if this is done manually (via IS-WEB).

 * The actual implementation details will be determined by the ICH Panel after consultation with RAWG and ACH.

     Sept 2012 – IDEC service discontinued

Go-live,             No More           Must bill via IS         IDEC discontinued
 RMs                  Paper

    The “old” IDEC service is discontinued

     You will no longer be able to send any billings using the old IDEC format
         and your partners will not be able to bill you using the old IDEC format. This
         applies to primes and whatever other billings are sent via IDEC.
           All data on old IDEC must be sent via IS; expect that you will receive all
            prime billings via IS – a lot of effort if you’re still manual

 RMs                  Paper

    Usage of Integrated Settlement is mandated

        ICH WEB and ACH recap sheet service will be disconnected for claims submission
           All claims must be submitted via IS and must include all relevant billing info

           All your partners will be fully migrated by now – every incoming billing will be via IS


 * The mandate date is an estimate; the exact date will depend on acceptance of the solution, sufficient
 volumes, and approval by the responsible committees.

   Think of the impossible…
    The earth going round the sun

    Sailing around the world

    ‘Taking a picture’ without paper…

    Landing on Mars

    Banking, without ever setting foot in a bank

    Weekly settlement…



SIS P3 – Beijing Workshop – Into the Future   12    April 2011
   Not just possible – real!



    So why should SIS be any different?




SIS P3 – Beijing Workshop – Into the Future   13   April 2011
   Freedom is frightening
    Our lives in interline are based around paper

    Moving into a world without it signifies fundamental change in how
        we think and work
    Challenging…

    But impossible? NO!

    E-Invoicing has been with us for years – it is just not universal yet

    It may not be legal in some places now, but how long will it be until it
        is generally accepted in every country in the world?



SIS P3 – Beijing Workshop – Into the Future   14                         April 2011
   So where to, from now?
    Open your mind to the possibilities

    Airlines are probably the most data-oriented businesses on the
        planet
    Most of the services being provided in the industry are sourced from
        computers
    The data needed by SIS is there in almost all airlines

    Almost all paper originates from data – so why print it so you can bill
        it?
    Think how your systems can be joined up, so that the data can flow



SIS P3 – Beijing Workshop – Into the Future   15                        April 2011
   Final word
    Integrated Settlement is on its way
    In few months it will be live
    It will affect everyone here
    Make sure your teams are aware of the changes to
        billing rules and processes
       Make sure your project staff have downloaded the
        IS Participation Guide from the SIS website
       Make sure your invoicing units are on board
       Make sure your departmental champions are
        assigned
       Make sure you are signed up, profile data is correct,
        and your staff have log-on IDs and training before IS
        goes live
       Look forward to a paperless world!
