Stena Line signs with XN Checkout


Europe’s leading ferry operator, the Gothenburg based Stena Line has signed the contract for the replacement of their onboard EPoS systems with the recently AIM listed company XN Checkout.

Each year, more than 17 million people travel to their destination with Stena Line. Together with the wholly- owned subsidiary Scandlines AB, the Group operates Europe’s most comprehensive route network, with 39 vessels on 18 strategically located routes in Scandinavia and the UK. Stena Line’s vessels call at ports in eight countries: Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Poland, the Netherlands, the UK and Ireland.

The new EPoS solution includes all the onboard restaurants, bars and retail outlets, plus head office systems in the UK, Netherlands and Sweden.

“We are particularly pleased to have won the Stena contract, it has been fiercely fought for by the world’s leading EPoS suppliers,” said John Bowen European Sales and Marketing Director. “We have developed our core system with Stena to provide the additional functionality required for the operation of an international ferry fleet.”

“The software is very comprehensive and easy to use for the operator” added Joachim Lustig of Stena Line IT. “After a period of intensive development with XN Checkout we have implemented the first vessel on the Trelleborg route between Sweden and Germany as a pilot which is now operating successfully. The roll-out commences after the summer holiday period.”
