Barcelona, March 8 – IST launches a new plan to cooperate with IT companies seeking to work in the cruise business, but who lack the technology they need. It offers access to the solutions that IST has developed over the last 20 years.
Under the plan, certain firms may be offered exclusivity in given markets, depending on their interests and strategies, and those of IST.
With our new programme, called Technology Partner Network (TPN), IST has clearly opted to share the know-how and experience gleaned over the last twenty years of developing solutions for the online cruise sales sector with other strategic partners, whose work will supplement IST Solutions, particularly in the area of online integration with over 30 different cruise lines.
According to Manuel Sardi, CEO of IST, “our main goal is to extend our presence in the sector and, in certain markets, to reach out via our IT partners and their technology, which works together with ours. People who share our vision of helping distribution channels to sell more cruises online.”
The Network is to consist of IT firms interested in IST’s FIBOS technology, which connects with the inventory and prices of over 30 cruise lines in real time. These IT firms will be able to develop their own FIBOS-based cruise solutions or search engines and market them.
Sardi states, “forming part of this cooperative network guarantees our partners the latest leading-edge technology with which to tailor solutions for their customers, connecting them to virtually all the cruise lines in the world”.
IST is the go-to technology partner for the world of cruising, with twenty years of practical experience in the field. A multitude of cruise lines, travel agents and tour operators in some 60 countries have placed their trust in us for over 20 years now. We offer the most robust technology with connections to over 30 different cruise lines. Our FIBOS technology has permitted over 45,000 travel agents to take the plunge and sell cruises over the Internet. It has even seeded the birth of some of them.
With our FIBOS technology, our customers have been able to set up their own B2C websites, through which to offer cruise products directly to the end-consumer, develop B2B applications through their own intranets or design apps for mobile devices. FIBOS allows for the full automation of the cruise sales process.
Our greatest strengths are our reliability, flexibility and rapid response, alongside our specialised team with its extensive, in-depth knowledge of the sector.
