Trasmediterranea chooses Carus !

The Spanish leading ferry company, Trasmediterránea has entrusted to Carus the development and start-up of its new ePoS for sales and services on board. Carus has extensive experience in developing applications and integrated electronic sales systems in the maritime transport sector. Trasmediterranea has opted for a more modern and integrated retail and catering system that would allow a new sales and inventory process to be carried out on board its passenger fleet, connected to a central office to facilitate management control and information.

It also improves the delivery of a global service and the ability to capitalize on customer loyalty.

Trasmediterranea currently operates 58 lines, covered by 23 vessels, including passenger ships with a multitude of outlets in bars and restaurants on board. This new system of Carus will lead to an improvement in the management of inventories and suppliers of such points of sale and in customer loyalty systems, with integrated facilities for card processing.
