Ferry Reservations & Ticketing
Compass - your robust solution for remote, demanding and complex ferry services - including inter-island, multi vessel, routes, fares, tickets and ship configurations. Tickets can be booked online, over the phone, via a kiosk or from any office giving you full visibility of your bookings in real time.
Easy to use and integrate, our ticketing software and rugged handheld machines allows operators to issue printed tickets at the point of transaction, on open decks and via the web from a centralised system.
