Powering London Underground through dynamic information

The Challenge

As part of its commitment to offering a world-class service, London Underground wanted to update its old system for delivering real time information to employees on station platforms. The organisation had been using old PDA devices, which were not providing essential information quickly.

The Solution

O2 recommended that London Underground took advantage of the BlackBerry solution already in place, and asked O2 partner, Interchange, to write an application for BlackBerry that would deliver the dynamic information needed, while providing a very simple and robust user interface.

O2 provides a fully managed service, supporting the devices, the servers, the application and the users. All technical support is through a single point of contact within the O2 Managed Services team.

The Results

  • More information available for travelling public.
  • Empowered front line employees.
  • Minimal disruption to existing IT systems.
  • No increase in support services needed.
