- In the words of Lileana Guerra, IT Director and Co-Owner of IST, “We have made an enormous step forwards and, in cooperation with Un Mundo De Cruceros, have included Disney Cruises in our portfolio”
Barcelona, Wednesday September 13, 2017. IST, the technology partner of choice for the cruise industry, has included online booking for Disney Cruise Line cruises in its FIBOS product, a development crafted together with Un Mundo De Cruceros (the official representative of the Cruise Line). “From now on, all agencies with FIBOS integration will be able to extend their range and offer the sale of Disney Cruises online” assured Lileana Guerra, IT Director and Co-Owner of IST. FIBOS is an online solution that allows travel agents to develop their own, 100% personalised, cruise booking system through a unique XML messaging system.
Today IST offers access to 30 cruise lines with its FIBOS Technology, including Disney. Up until now, all that was available for DISNEY was an automatic product and pricing download. “We have made an enormous step forwards and, in cooperation with Un Mundo De Cruceros, have included online bookings for Disney Cruises”, explained the IT Director.
On his side, the Managing Director of Un Mundo de Cruceros, Juan Rodero, said “Un Mundo de Cruceros always seeks to offer the travel agent the very best tools to help their sales of cruises. This agreement with IST, allowing the online sale of Disney Cruises, further broadens the portfolio of lines already available online through FIBOS Technology and thus also our sales opportunities.”
After the announcement that the cruise line was to double the size of its fleet over the next few years, building three new ships, Guerra pointed out that “including Disney on FIBOS couldn’t have happened at a better time” and added, “It offers the agencies a magnificent opportunity to both grow and automate the range of cruises they offer”. Finally the IT Director said that IST’s ultimate goal was “to grow the travel agent with our technology” and Guerra concluded stating “we feel that this new integration brings us a little closer to achieving our goal.
