Norwegian Cruise Line
After 9/11, Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) faced difficulties getting cash aboard their ships. Enter Brightwell, who not only eliminated the need for cash-handling, but also reduced administrative tasks and improved upon their previous methodologies of distributing pay. NCL was able to enjoy enormous savings on courier costs, and the crew were no longer forced to incur expensive fees to convert cash from Euro to USD, and then into other currencies if they needed to send money to loved ones back home.
Besides a marked financial benefit, Brightwell’s platform allowed for enhanced safety and security onboard by taking cash out of the equation. With the removal of cash, the crew didn’t have to stow their cash in unsecured locations in the shared cabin environments, and could rest easy knowing their hard-earned pay was safe, secure, and available to them when they need it.
