Last Monday, Iarnród Éireann, Irish Rail, has launched their new online booking system (S3 Passenger) which will give Irish rail customers more control, choice and flexibility than ever before, such as a wide variety of fares and the ability to manage their bookings online.
Irish Rail: “We are delighted to begin to bring more control to rail customers. These improvements are based on what our customers have asked us for – the ability to manage your own booking and to choose the type of flexibility which suits you best is hugely important for customers. Some customers have regular travel patterns and will love the Low Fare option. Others may have meetings or appointments which may end early or late, and the Semi Flexible or Fully Flexible options give real choice.”
During the first days of usage, impressive revenues were recorded through the web shop, telesales and B2B, all making use of S3 Passenger, compared to regular days with the old system. Over the last few days, the IE, Cubic and Sqills teams have been tweaking the system. Now, the system is stable. All in all, it was an impressive and successful launch!
S3 Passenger is the latest and leading sales and distribution suite on the market. Sqills is proud that leading public transport operators such as Irish Rail, SNCF (OUIBUS) and Thalys (IZY) have selected S3 Passenger because of its thousands out of the box features, short time to market and powerful self-services.Manage your rail booking!
