Manual submission via iiNet or IS-web?

Since iiNet also provides online access to submit files to SIS, I'd like to know, if we choose manual submission, what's the advantage or benefit if we use iiNet instead of using IS-WEB?

Dear Binbin,

If you choose the manual upload option in iiNet, in case of validation errors, you can correct the invoice(s) at the source and resubmit - therefore the systems are kept in sync. Of course this requires that the participants' system be able to generate IS-Format files.

If you choose manual capturing via IS-Web, there will not be needs to modify the current internal system/need to create IS-Format files. However, depending on your average volume of transactions, this may be significantly more time-consuming than the manual upload via iiNet.

Hope this helps.

Best regards

Dear Ashley,
 
To make my question clearer.
We generate SIS files, then I have two options to manually upload my SIS file to SIS. One is via iiNet Online Access, one is uploading SIS file directly via IS-web.
My concern is, in this particular case, what is the benefit/advantage of using iiNet instead of IS web?
Thanks

Hi Binbin,

 

As had already been addressed by our Pilot PM, I have also posted the answer to your question here in order for it to be shared with our fellow forum members:

 

There are two options for uploading/downloading the input/output files in the IS Production Environment:

 

(1) Manually over IS-WEB: Input/output files can be uploaded/downloaded by logging into IS-WEB by selecting the appropriate Menu Option. Refer to the IS-Web User Manual section on How to upload and download files from the IS-WEB interface.

This is actually logging into IS-Web, selecting attachment from the appropriate menu option and browsing to select the file you wish to upload and send.

 

(2) Using iiNET: A number of airlines use IATAs iiNET service to exchange data files with other IATA Systems as well as other partners. IS supports iiNET as a medium to submit as well as receive files.

 

Please note that in case of Sandbox Testing, the only option supported is iiNET. In addition, there is no connectivity testing required if the Member opts for IS-WEB for transferring the input and output files. If iiNET is the mode of connection to IS, then the Member is required to carry out connectivity testing to ensure that they are able to communicate with the IS Server successfully.

Therefore, if some degree of automation is required, submitting the files through iiNET is the logical choice. The iiNET option offers on-line (manual) and automated process (recommended).

Best regards
