Turkey's Sunexpress chooses the revenue accounting software SKYfly Revenue from ISO Software Systems in Nuremberg 

SunExpress chooses the revenue accounting software SKYfly Revenue from ISO Software Systeme in Nuremberg after an extensive selection process. 

The SunExpress airline will carry out its revenue accounting using SKYfly Revenue by ISO Software Systeme.

The scheduled and charter carrier from Turkey thus put out a call for proposals for such as system. In the end, SKYfly Revenue by ISO Software Systeme convinced SunExpress.
