Booking engine update April 2011

13 April, 2011

Yesterday, we released several new improvements to our agent booking solution and consumer booking solution.

The focus for this release is to automate the manual workload and stabilize the systems before the development freeze May 1st.

Overview of release and improvements:

  • Excursions booked automatically into PG
  • Excursions filtering to only show excursions applicable for the selected voyage
  • *Improving “find booking” function in B2B

Overview of bug fixes and technical tasks:

  • Booking fails before customer arrives at payment
  • Error on cancel booking
  • Symbols on car reg
  • Bug in port filtering on Excursions
  • GUI-support for selecting excursions on return trip
  • Changes to the passenger page in B2C

There will be one more release before the freeze, which is to be released into production on April 28th (B2X v2.7). No further improvements other than big fixes will be made.

Feel free to contact me (steven.macdonald@hurtigruten.com) or leave your comments and suggestions below.

    Thank you for your reply Willette.
    May I ask if you have used our booking engine to book a voyage online and what your thoughts are on them?

    And have you been following our progress from the beginning when we first launched back in December 2009?

    Thanks

    Currently the booking system https://consumerbooking.hurtigruten.com seems to be failing, when you select a trip and date and click “Find price and book” the system answers with:

    Unfortunately an error has occurred
    We are experiencing technical problems. Please try other search parameters or contact us.
