“ Once again, IBM proved to be the ideal partner during a tricky phase in our business journey. The market is pushing us to keep pace with constant changes and we simply can’t afford to be held back by a lack of performance or flexibility. With help from IBM, we have succeeded in sharpening our competitive edge. ”

Travel & Transportation
This European railway operator manages a very large railway system, which includes several high-speed routes.
To compete against cut-price airlines and low-cost coach operators, this European rail operator looked to create an engaging sales experience combined with flexible travel and ticketing options.
The operator enhanced its web and mobile experience by streamlining processing of customer queries, enabling real-time service updates for travelers, and creating flexible journey-planner solutions.
Sleek, modern customer interfaces that offer a wider range of travel options have boosted ticket sales by a double-digit percentage, winning revenue back from competitors and strengthening profitability.
