We have also started to plan our BOOKIT Conference and all clients should have received the invitation from After Sales.

Destination Gotland will build a new LNG-powered vessel which we are looking forward to seeing.

Marine Atlantic & Hogia Terminal Management
Marine Atlantic has decided to start using Hogia Terminal. Hogia Terminal is a terminal management system which deals with commercial bookings; a system that handles the entire process from gate-in and out, damage handling to yard management. The system will be integrated with BOOKIT. This will make the process of dealing with commercial bookings efficient and quick.

Red Funnel & Hogia Public Transport Systems
Red Funnel has decided to start using another Hogia product - TIMS, provided by Public Transport Systems. With TIMS, Red Funnel will be able to display live information about all sailings on screens at train stations, at the terminals as well as on social media like Facebook and Twitter. Integration between TIMS and BOOKIT will be done in order to get real time departure information directly from BOOKIT.

This year's BOOKIT Conference will be held together with Wagenborg Passagiersdiensten B.V. and the location is beautiful Ameland, the Netherlands. The date is set to September 15-17.

We have sent invitations to all our clients and we do hope that as many as possible are able to join us this year. Deadline for answering the invitation is July 15th.

Hogia invests in Cloud solutions
Hogia is making a huge investment in the Cloud with its new platform Hogia Star - the investment is estimated to be  half a billion SEK.

The company has vast resources thanks to recent year’s success. Since 2007, Hogia has doubled the equity which today is 150 million. Last year the company made a profit of SEK 22 million, compared with 16 million in 2012.

We have developed the business over time, the money we have earned has gone into investments, says Bert -Inge Hogsved, founder and CEO of the Hogia group. The last seven years have gone very well and therefore we can make this kind of venture.
