Irish Ferries is part of the Irish Continental Group and has four RoPax vessels and one Fastcraft currently operating on two routes across the Irish Sea as well as direct route between Ireland and France. Irish Ferries currently have two separate systems for their passenger and freight operations, which will now be replaced with one complete solution. In January they signed an agreement with Hogia Ferry Systems to deliver their standard booking system BOOKIT.
“We are very confident that we have made the right decision in choosing Hogia and BOOKIT”, Andrew Sheen, Managing Director of the Ferries Division at Irish Ferries.
Ferry Systems provides mission critical systems for ferry- and sea freight operators. With the main focus on our product – the BOOKIT Reservation System – our clients world-wide benefit from the many types of applications and services connected to the system.
BOOKIT is a reservation system targeted for maritime transportation services. It handles the complete booking process from the capture of passenger, vehicle and freight details to follow-up activities as invoicing and reporting. The system is suitable for many different kinds of ferry and sea-freight services, thanks to its flexible route, capacity, price and yield management functionality. It is also possible to sell closely related products through BOOKIT, such as on-board services, on-shore accommodation and connecting travel tickets. In addition to a number of different applications, like quick sales, check-in and yield management tools, we also provide open integration interfaces (Application Programming Interface) through which external systems can interact with the reservation system in various ways. This could be integration to external web booking sites, ticket machines, smartphone apps and mobile check-in.
Ferry Systems currently has clients across Europe, Canada, Asia, Africa and Australia.
