The ACES Accounting component provides an automated electronic workflow for invoices for hotel and transportation providers. The ACES system automatically creates monthly accruals that include both planned (scheduled) and actual (day of operations) services used. Suppliers submit their invoices to API electronically using the ACES supplier website. These invoices are reviewed by API auditors using an electronic reconciliation wizard which compares the accrual amounts adjacent to the supplier submitted amounts before presentation to the airline. Validated invoices and amounts are submitted to the airline for approval. An on-line consolidated invoice provides the airline with a summary of all individual invoices.
