Tailor-made booking platform for ferries, island hopping and leisure sailing

Sailing schedules, ticket sales, capacity management, handling of special sailings and parking of vehicles.

There is a lot to keep track of before the ferry can depart from the quay.

With CompuFerry, you get a booking platform that handles all types of sailing, and where passengers can put together tours and book and buy tickets online.

Importantly, you also get a backend administration system that keeps track of all the details for administration, captain and crew. All the features are specially designed for ferries, island hopping and leisure sailing.

Read more below and experience the benefits of our comprehensive booking platform, and see how you can manage bookings, vehicles and ticket revenues so that your passengers can enjoy the crossing.

Capacity management and section distribution

With CompuFerry, you can manage vessels with individual characteristics and automatically optimize capacity for each departure.

 

With the graphical tool for section distribution, you can divide decks and suspended decks into sections for different vehicle categories, and based on your distribution plan, CompuFerry automatically creates an optimal parking plan for the vehicles as the passengers make their bookings.

 

With the section distribution tool, you also have the option of manually rearranging the vehicles between the sections for individual parking and optimal capacity utilization.

Three-point navigation for optimal positioning of vehicles

When a vessel sails between several destinations and with several ports of call, it places great demands on the positioning of vehicles. It is especially important here that the vehicles are positioned appropriately so that those that need to leave first are positioned correctly.

 

Our module for handling three-point navigation helps the deck staff to ensure that the vehicles are optimally loaded, taking account of the passengers' final destinations. Thus, the vehicles are not simply loaded in the order they are booked. CompuFerry three-point navigation takes account of the order in which the vehicles need to leave the vessel, so that the unloading can take place quickly and smoothly.

Multipoint sailing for island hopping and leisure sailing

With our tailor-made online booking for special sailings, passengers can arrange their sailing trips and visit several destinations along the route.

 

You can sell tickets online for island hopping and leisure trips, where passengers can hop on and off the ships at the various ports of call and possibly also make stops along the way.

 

If passengers on the voyage cross zones with different fares, CompuFerry automatically calculates the total fare in relation to the selected route.
