an IT product offering ready to address the growing demands of the rail industry.

expectations of today’s traveller to have a seamless, end-to-end trip
This newly-bolstered business group will be led by Diane Bouzebiba, who will be responsible for sales, marketing and product management and
Head of Development will be Doug Howe, formerly Chief Operating Officer of Onerail, who will now be responsible for product definition and
recent acclaimed rail product launches include Fly By Rail – a fully integrated booking system that displays
high-speed rail and inter-city services alongside airline flight information – and Airport Express, to which the
UK’s Heathrow Express service
