Alilaguna (a public service Company providing liner shipping to Airport-Venice-Cruises Terminal) has achieved, through Fastbook, an automatic ticketing system with the aim of handling the multichannel release and validation of all kinds of electronic titles (bar code 1/2D, RFID cards, NFC, Ticketless voucher etc).
This solution turns out to be properly flexible, scalable and interoperable with other kinds of maritime ticketing systems in the tourism and transport areas.
The sale at box offices is always ensured by the module “emergency ticketing”, allowing tickets releasing even without Internet connection.
Worthy of evidence is the ticketing by automatic ticket machines placed in the strategic locations of the town.
The access control to the boarding points is made by direct interfacing to the turnstiles in the city network.
The system supports successfully the data exchange with travel agencies, tour operators and third parties B2B/B2C.
