The initial situation
Creation of a common data basis from different accounting systems of international transport companies
Each international transport company usually sells tickets via its own sales system and generates national accounting data in a country-specific format. International billing between the European partner railways is carried out using billing data records in an agreed structure, the electronic UIC billing message.
For the international cooperation between Deutsche Bahn (DB) and the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB), a common basis for looking at the different sales information of cross-border rail passenger transport was desired.
