Customer Booking Flow Click to view more information Download product brochure

The S3P modules work together closely in a customer centric booking flow to guide customers through the ‘orientation’ phase. Customers select a journey with available inventory and products, choosing the price and conditions that match their preferences in the orientation phase.

This is followed by the ‘booking phase’ where the selection is converted to a reservation that can be completed or expanded with ancillary products and passenger information.

Finally the customer pays for the reservation, receives confirmation of the reservation, and their tickets are distributed. Activities are orchestrated by the S3P modules shown here:

Constant evolution

Our industry, operator needs, and customer demands are constantly evolving, S3 Passenger can quickly adapt and evolve where needed to ensure that it meets current and future needs. Continuous deployment paired with SaaS means faster distribution, earlier access to new features to customer, smaller deliveries, and ensuring customers always have the latest bug fixes and improvements. In addition, current operators are involved in the evolution of the product through the User Story Marketplace.

Multi-channel distribution

  • The strength of S3P is represented by its core modules combined with sales and distribution API’s
  • All modules are managed through a single GUI back office environment (browser accessible), offering users an easy to use S3P platform.
  • Sales and distribution channel integration is facilitated with a standardised (and well-documented) set of API’s
  • Configurable prices, rules & conditions per distribution channel
  • Operators can create their own tailor-made (B2C) customer booking experience
  • S3P can be integrated with any client system based on web technology, mobile technology or other types of API driven (global) distribution channels such as ticket vending machines, station desk sales and B2B partner integrations.
