The go to technology partner for the cruise industry approaches its participation at the world’s most important tourist industry trade fair after the resounding success of its presence at FITUR, and with its sights firmly set on preparing for the other events it will be showing at in the first quarter of 2018.
IST, the go to technology partner for the cruise world, will be showing at ITB in Berlin (March 7-11) for the very first time. In the first quarter of 2018, after attending over 100 business visitors at FITUR, IST anticipates deploying its technological solutions all over the world and is scheduled to participate at diverse encounters of the tourist industry, such as, ANATO (Colombia), the ACAVE TECHNOLOGY SYMPOSIUM (Barcelona) and ITB (Berlin).
Manuel Sardi, CEO and Managing Director of IST underscored that IST’s launch at ITB was “a decisive thrust, on both a European and Global level, to underpin our technology solutions and, above all, continue to bring to the market all our most important new developments for the year”. Along these lines, the CEO reminded us of the presentation of NAVEO, the firm’s new cruise booking engine, at FITUR and underscored how “well it had been received” by the sector.
With a view to helping the sales of cruise products, IST brings to the tourist market a varied range of online services with which to set up B2C websites, develop B2B applications or implement APPS for mobile devices. The company’s FIBOS Technology offers access to book on over 15,000 cruises run by some 30+ different cruise lines.
Likewise outstanding amongst the different alternatives offered by IST are API integrations for the online booking of cruises. Moreover, with the firm’s FDF (FIBOS-DATA-FEED) Technology Solution, the cruise line can help travel agents increase their leads as it allows for the full automation of the cruise inventory, providing information on availability, sailings, prices, categories and itineraries, up-dated every day. Thus the travel agent is able to provide its customer with an accurate, up-to-date quote.
IST is a member of the ICEX (Spanish Foreign Trade Institute) delegation at ITB, to be found at the Travel Tech from Spain Stand (stand 106). It will also take part in the E-TRAVEL forum.
