masabi, chiltern railways & atos scoop rail business award
A concerted effort from Chiltern Railways, Atos and Masabi saw the companies claim victory at the recent Rail Business Awards 2012 in the Information Technology Excellence category. The accolade was awarded for the trio's work in delivering the first ever live mTicketing system for a franchised Train Operating Company, which lets customers buy tickets on their phone using the Chiltern Railways app and travel straight away.
The Rail Business Awards is one of the UK rail industry's most prestigious awards ceremonies, and recognises excellence for business, technology & engineering, safety & security, stations & trains, creativity, and individual achievement.
Rail Business Awards judge Tony King praised the market credibility of the group's mTicketing scheme, which was launched in May 2011, and also commended the fact that it is available on both smartphones and regular mobiles, thereby providing the best experience possible to the largest number of customers.
