Specialist cruise operator Norwegian Coastal Voyage has improved its booking management and customer satisfaction by installing new software tailor
-made by Moore Stephens Consulting Limited. The system has recently been implemented in NCV’s New York office and has run successfully in the London office since 2003.
NCV is a travel company that caters to the individual requirements of its customers. It delivers a range of package, tailor-made and group cruises to a variety of destinations and in a number of different price brackets. NCV’s previous system required clicking through different screens to build up components of a reservation; requiring customers booking even the most standard cruises to be on the phone for 15 minutes or more. Substantial numbers of would-be passengers gave up without getting through.
The Moore Stephens Consulting solution integrates all the booking requirements and allows data to be easily accessed through user-friendly reports. The system, developed on a Microsoft@.NET platform, saves NCV 175 person-days per year, cuts training time and costs and has improved customer response. Less than one percent of calls are now lost. Customers can resolve all booking issues with only one operator who has access to all parts of the voyage booking system.
