• Manuel Sardi, CEO and Managing Director of IST, “lcom group’s decision to go with online booking represents an advance in the automation of cruise sales”

Barcelona, September 04, 2017. IST, the technology partner of choice for the cruise industry, and lastminute.com group, European leader in online travel and leisure services, have signed an agreement to integrate FIBOS technology in the main cruise sales websites of the group, that is: www.rumbo.es (Spain), www.fr.lastminute.com (France) y www.crocierissime.it (Italy).

Francesco Manna, Cruise Trading Director of lastminute.com group, stated, “I am pleased to announce that an agreement has been reached at this time. Lastminute.com group’s partnership with IST will boost the level of automation of our cruise booking system. We will leverage FIBOS cutting edge technology in our cruises brands: crocierissime.it, cruceros.rumbo.es, croisieres.lastminute.com.”

Up until now the group has worked with FDF (FIBOS – DATA- FEED), IST’s solution which permits  the automation of the cruise inventory, so enabling the availability of sailings, prices and itineraries to be made available online and updated on a daily basis, allowing customers to request quotes for their cruises through one of the groups platforms.

Notwithstanding, in this new phase the group will extend the process to include the ability to make online bookings, allowing the user to book cruises with AZAMARA, CELEBRITY, CARNIVAL, HOLLAND AMERICA, NORWEGIAN CRUISE LINE, PULLMANTUR, ROYAL CARIBBEAN, SEABOURN and PRINCESS. Manuel Sardi, CEO and Managing Director of IST, stated his satisfaction at having closed this new deal which will “firm up and bring solidity” to the relationship between IST and the group. Moreover, he stated that the fact that lastminute.com group had opted for an online booking system represented an “advance” in the automation of cruise sales.
“With FIBOS we have minimised the complexity of making online cruise bookings and greatly helped OTA developers” assured Sardi, adding, “it is an ideal solution for online agents who seek to automate their cruise product and offer online booking from their own platform”.
