USP

CruiseConnect Control

CruiseConnect Control allows your onshore staff or onboard crew to manage every aspect of the internet access and to create distinct offerings for your guests and crew.

CUSTOMIZED INTERNET PLANS FOR EVERY NEED

Allocating the available bandwidth fairly among several thousand users in a fair way is a difficult undertaking. At the same time, the offered internet service should be as close as possible to the living room experience of guests. When it comes to efficiently managing the internet access on board, you face a particluar challenge. On the one hand, your job is to limit the data consumption and thus the cost of the overall internet service. On the other hand, you are expected to generate additional revenues.

Your challenge now is to turn the various levers to offer attractive internet plans. These levers include for example the number of permitted devices, appealing internet plans, freely usable websites and much more. In addition to tailor-made guest packages such as social or premium day or cruise packages, you want to offer your crew an inexpensive option to stay in touch with family and friends after a long day at work. How about an off-peak happy hour package after 10 p.m. in order to control bandwidth utilization?

 

SOPHISTICATED FRAUD DETECTION

Despite your efforts to please guests and crew, you have occasionally heard about improper use of the internet service. Individual crew members used guest accounts to gain free internet access. In order to avoid guest complaints, it is important to identify such fraud cases in the future.

 

MAXIMUM FLEXIBILITY TO MANAGE THE INTERNET SERVICE

CruiseConnect Control is a holistic, web-based suite of operational management tools that empowers your staff to manage every aspect of internet connectivity (e.g. bandwidth, accounts, internet plans, bookings, devices, users, groups, etc.) in real-time either from ship or shore.

CruiseConnect Control requires minimal operating efforts and is very popular with the admin crew due to its intuitive and easy-to-use tools.
