Innovation Hub

Welcome to our news and blog section. Here you will find the latest updates from theICEway and our IT specialists at ICE. We are frequently invited to attend and speak at industry events, so if you don’t want to miss out on those, this is the page for you.

With more than 20 years’ worth of experience in cruise, travel and healthcare, you will also be able to read more about these key sectors. Of course, at the heart of it all is Information Technology – which some of you may know as ‘IT’ – and we’ll certainly include news on that.

Our ecosystem of companies was founded upon 3 guiding principles, or values: People, integrity and innovation. We always aim to infuse our every effort with one or all of these. The first, ‘people’, includes not only our people, but also those we work alongside each day. If you are reading this, then you can rest assured that it also includes you.

As such, we welcome your comments and feedback so do join in the conversation. You can also follow us on social media using the links below.

Our latest monthly newsletter arrived last week in its newly succinct format; for those of you who may have missed it, here is a brief recap.

Our Blogs

Your November ICEbreaker e-shot contained links to theICEway’s varied blog sections. ICE recently published articles on data in travel and a CDC announcement regarding the cruise industry. It also offered a preview of some of the forthcoming events in the travel industry, all of which are well worth a look.

CRIBB Cyber Security covered data governance frameworks plus the cyber security implications of potentially the busiest black Friday sales event on record.

eTestware tackled the different types of software testing, including performance, automation and blockchain. There really has been something for everyone this autumn!

Travel Forward Virtual 2020

The regular ICEbreaker exclusive feature centred on November’s World Travel Market. The focus was specifically on the ‘Cruise – Technology can save it!’ session, moderated by our Co-Founder and CEO, Ian Richardson.

Richardson is no stranger to presenting at events in cruise and travel, and here he brought his inimitable style to a discussion with representatives from Kognitiv Spark and Canopy Tools Group.

These companies have combined to create a bio-secure framework for cruise aimed at tackling the key recommendations from the Healthy Sail Panel Report:

  • Testing / Screening
  • Sanitisation & Ventilation
  • Destination & Excursion planning
  • Mitigating risks for crew members
  • Response, contingency planning & execution

The framework is designed to effectively manage and monitor the health of crew and passengers during the cruise journey as a whole (port-ship-stop-over-port).

View the November ICEbreaker here, where you will be able to watch a full-length video of the panel.
