“ONE SOLUTION” BACK

APIS1.com Technical Details

LEGACY COMPATIBILITY:
Current systems that send APIS transmissions using the e-MAIL method, can continue to do so without any changes to their system. The only change that will have to be made is WHEN the manifest data is sent. The APIS1.com system will accept e-mail transmission of APIS data directly into the APIS1.com system, and the APIS1.com system will process the data, store it in it's own database system, and transmit the new specification UN/EDIFACT to CBP.
After transmitting the manifest to CBP, the APIS1.com system will monitor all CBP traffic and automatically e-mail back boarding pass clearance information and any last-minute changes to statuses by CBP. These e-mails would be handled just like the old-style "Notification of Receipts".
After check-in has completed, you can use the same method you are using now to send a NEW manifest containing all the required APIS information and APIS1.com will update the manifest records and transmit the final manifest data to CBP, accordingly.

EASY INTEGRATION INTO EXISTING
RESERVATION AND DEPARTURE CONTROL SYSTEMS:

The APIS1.com system can accept incoming data from your existing system and automatically extract out the pertinant flight, passenger, and APIS data. Passenger Name Lists (PNL's) are the most common format used to communicate manifests back and forth between Departure Control Systems (DCS's). PNL, as well as all other common formats, can automatically be imported into the APIS1.com system which will then create a CBP Manifest, transmit it to CBP, and monitor the communications from CBP pertaining to that manifest.
When the manifest boarding status messages come in from CBP for your manifest, the APIS1.com system will automatically send your DCS system the updated boarding clearance status so it is available to be viewed by your check-in terminal system. Because there is no "standard" for boarding pass issuance status, to keep backwards compatibility, a special SSR (Special Service Request) message will be added to each passenger's PNR record indicating the CBP status for each passenger.
Messaging between your system and the APIS1.com system can be via e-mail, ARINC or SITA, or by direct secure SSL XML internet protocol.

GDS BASED CONNECTIVITY:
Systems that use IATA GDS communications (AIRIMP) can integrate into the APIS1.com system as well. The APIS1.com system can accept AIRIMP Passenger Name Records (PNR's), PNL and ADL messages to build and manage the manifests. The APIS1.com system can automatically transmit CBP manifests at the required times, monitor for booking changes and communicate all necessary changes to CBP as necessary. Incoming messages from CBP can then be translated by the APIS1.com system and send update messages into the GDS system to facilitate adding in the boarding status information into each PNR record.

XML LIVE COMMUNICATION:
The APIS1.com system enabled live real-time XML communication between your systems and the APIS1.com system. This powerful feature allows you to easily customize any application to send individual booking data, entire manifests, or any combination into the APIS1.com system. The APIS1.com system will automatically handle messaging to and from CBP, and will allow you to query the status of entire flights or individual passengers at any time.

CheckTSA.com FRONT END:
CheckTSA.com has been in operation since 2004, handling automated TSA vetting for passengers and employees. CheckTSA.com is the front-end for simplified manifest vetting operations. The CheckTSA.com system has a direct link into the APIS1.com system and is an all-in-one solution for any aircraft operator who does not have an integrated system already.

CRS MANAGER:
The CRS Manager is a system designed to handle everything from taking reservations via a web portal, handling GDS booking from all the GDS CRS Systems (SABRE, WORLDSPAN, etc.), all the way to handling web-based automatic check-in and boarding pass printing.
The GROUND HANDLING module of CRS MANAGER is directly tied into both the CheckTSA.com system and the APIS1.com system, allowing parallel vetting processing and APIS management in real time.

DATA FORMATS SUPPORTED:
Data formats currently supported include: IATA PNR, PNL/ADL; UN/EDIFACT PAXLST, PNR, MCL; XML; all types of various plain and formatted text importing; Excel spreadsheet files including CBP MCL; Tech7 Manifest reports; Radixx PNL/ADL messaging; and custom development is always available to meet any of your needs!
