Bournemouth, UK (PRWEB) October 16, 2009
Bournemouth based digital marketing agency Refreshed Media, in conjunction with Complete Cruise Solution (CCS) scooped the Trade-Facing Website Of The Year Award, at the prestigious Travel Trade Gazette (TTG) awards ceremony for its work on the Complete Cruise Solution website.
The website - completecruisesolution.com was launched in December 2008 and proved to be an instant success with travel agents, delivering a single online aid to provide sales and marketing support for the four premier CCS cruise brands - P&O Cruises, Cunard, Princess Cruises and Ocean Village. Around 14,000 agents have since enrolled and the site now attracts an average of 300,000 page views a month, making it an essential sales tool for the company.
The site was short-listed with several other well known travel companies including Virgin Holidays, Kuoni and Dubai Tourism. But the unique interactive resources featured including the very latest information on last minute deals and pricing, an image and video download library, point of sale ordering system and a personalised poster creation tool ensured CCS came out top.
Giles Hawke, Sales and Customer Services Director, Carnival UK, commented: "I am delighted to see completecruisesolution.com win this award. The site is designed to help and support agents every step of the way to be interactive, user-friendly, innovative and stylish. The fact the agent community has recognised the site as the best in the industry is a great achievement. The award is testament to all the hard work put in by the teams at CCS and Refreshed Media, to deliver such a fantastic product to support our agent partners."
Carol Cavanagh, Account Director, Refreshed Media added, "After our award winning virtual tour and microsite work with Cunard, we were delighted to assist CCS in enhancing their online offering to their travel partners. In such a competitive market, the efficiency and usability benefits have already proven to be a great sales aid and it's fantastic to receive such high recognition from TTG for our work."
