P&O Ferries, the UK's leading ferry company with routes connecting the UK to France, Belgium, Holland and Ireland, has embarked in a transformational programme to introduce a new B2C ecommerce platform based on SAP Hybris. The company has selected
Portaltech Reply as the partner to assist in replace its existing eCommerce platform for Tourist business with the SAP Hybris Multi-Channel Commerce Suite.
The legacy systems the company has been using made it very hard for P&O Ferries to compete in the market, as any improvements to the existing platform were very costly and time consuming.
On the other hand, the solution developed by Reply is very flexible and allows P&O Ferries to use a single platform for managing different channels (online, mobile and call centre), providing a more flexible offering to customers and leveraging best-practice capabilities, while at the same time creating a consistent user experience.
Because both the marketplace and customers are changing, P&O Ferries is now also expanding into selling ancillary services provided by third parties.
