IST Cruise Technology ExpertsIST has launched a new version of its popular Cruise Browser system for travel agents.

The new update, Cruise Browser 4 Business (CB4B), was developed for tour operators, travel wholesalers and management groups with a focus on improving travel agent productivity, said Manuel Sardi, CEO of IST.

"Cruise Browser is a web solution that allows you to simply, in just three steps, view and book over 14,000 itineraries on 30 different cruise lines," said Sardi.

He said the new version has been better tailored to travel agents with individualized back office access. "Tour operators, travel wholesalers and management groups can set up individual travel agent profiles, as well as the pertinent commissions, or manage their bookings," Sardi said. "It is a solution designed to more effectively manage bookings."
