Smyril Lines, MS Norröna, chooses Carus as its partner in happy travelling!

Smyril line wants the best for their business and that’s why they have chosen Carus as their partner in happy travelling.




Carus is proud to announce that Smyril line has chosen Carus to deliver online booking and check-in. Smyril is currently looking into Carus onboard point of sale for their ship M/S Norröna. Smyril line is replacing its inhouse system and sees the direct advantages of moving to a standard solution that is constantly evolving rather than having to develop everything themselves.
After comparing solutions on the market and having visited several ferry operators with similar operations to our own, we could clearly see that the Carus offering would be the best fit for us. Carus solutions for cruise and multi-leg operations convinced us that we will receive the system support we need to continue and increase our business." - Runi Vang Poulsen, CEO, Smyril line.
One of the main reasons for choosing Carus as a long term partner for our reservation system is their perspective on customer centric solutions, where they see IT solutions as an Integral part of the traveler journey and are able to provide solutions not only for ticket sales and reservations, but a full sales solution including onboard sales." - Eyðun Hentze Højgaard, Director of Digital Business and IT, Smyril line.
We at Carus strive to deliver an integrated solution where all systems communicate to provide a seamless traveler experience." - John Bertell, Director of sales, Carus.
Carus makes it possible to use one supplier for everything; from online bookings, travel app and port automation to point of sale. This is not only important for the company but also for the end-users (customers), providing them a smooth and seamless journey throughout all customer facing applications.
After a trip to the Åland Island where we met the Carus team we clearly saw that they provided the best solution for us." - Eyðun Hentze Højgaard, Director of Digital Business and IT, Smyril line.
We welcome Smyril Line to the Carus family." - Anders Runberg, CEO, Carus.
