Accelya acquires Anari

Accelya, which provides financial and commercial solutions to the airline and travel industry, backed by Warburg Pincus, a global private equity firm focused on growth investing, has acquired Anari, an independent business providing SaaS-based revenue integrity services as well as airline commercial insight consultancy, based in the UK. Anari develops and delivers solutions that take operational data and transform it into actionable intelligence. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Anari’s revenue protection and commercial data capabilities will complement Accelya’s integrated suite of airline financial and commercial solutions and will be made available to Accelya’s clients around the world.

“The strength of Anari’s world-class data capabilities combined with Accelya’s scale and breadth of offerings will bolster our ability to deliver solutions for complex revenue challenges across an expanded number of clients. This acquisition gives our team significant new opportunities to help airlines combine and enhance the traditional revenue integrity and revenue assurance processes, to amplify their revenue protection capabilities.” said Jose-Maria Portabella, Managing Director, at Accelya.

“We are delighted to be joining the Accelya Group, especially at this exciting time. Airlines are increasingly dynamic in their marketing of bundled flights and other services. They want to react instantly to changing demands, market conditions and emerging trends. Our solutions are designed to enable disparate business data to be combined quickly and intelligently to enable cost reduction, revenue generation and enhanced customer contact.

We’re confident that combining our high-performance solutions with Accelya’s commercial and financial portfolio will offer customers greater end-to-end capability, with the flexibility to deal with the most complex revenue assurance challenges.” added Nigel Dowden and Andy Wolstenholme, Founders and Directors at Anari.

James Fernandez, Accelya’s EVP Group Business Development commented: “The acquisition of Anari marks Accelya’s second transaction this year following the integration of Mercator, another leading industry IT provider, in March 2017. We are delighted to welcome the Anari team into the Accelya Group and to further our commitment to delivering a world class portfolio of IT solutions and services to the travel, transportation, and logistics industry.”
