Virgin Voyages agrees port cost management software deal

Virgin Voyages has signed a five-year agreement with Brenock Technology as its port cost management software provider, the companies have announced.

Through this agreement, Virgin Voyages will utilise Brenock’s cloud-based planning and port cost management tool, Integrated Management System (IMS), across its fleet of four ships.

The single-platform system can be used to manage fees and expenses across all operational categories for the cruise sector, including itinerary and contract changes, luggage and transfers, tugs and waste, and billing and forecasting from start to finish.

“We’re thrilled to have Brenock on our side to help keep our voyage itinerary and operations as efficient, productive and organised as possible,” said Juan Trescastro, Vice President of Global Destinations with Virgin Voyages.

“Brenock’s tools give us visibility into data and analytics throughout our voyage lifecycles unlike we have ever had before. The ability to control and manage nearly all aspects of a voyage in one platform enables us to continue to scale our fleet and provide the best quality experiences for our sailors.”

Virgin Voyages will go live with the Brenock planning tool in Q3 2023 and will be the first cruise line to implement the IMS system.

“It has been a pleasure to work with Virgin Voyages and support planning and management across their voyages,” said Manus Walsh, President and Founder of Brenock Technology.

“We’re excited to have Virgin Voyages go live will our full suite of cruise planning solutions. We know the importance of having real-time access to operational data at every stage of the cruise lifecycle. Our cloud-based automated solutions enable unmatched visibility to help Virgin Voyages provide seamless and quality experiences for its team, voyage crew and trusted customers.”
