20 years of successful service
It's 20 years since our Bids and Key Accounts Manager joined the company - and things have changed considerably over that time.---
Infotec’s Bids and Key Accounts Manager James Lisney is this week celebrating 20 years of successful service to the company.
James started to work for Infotec on September 1, 1998 in the role of Sales & Marketing Co-ordinator.
At that time, Infotec was not involved in railway passenger information systems and James says some of the most memorable jobs with which he has been involved are from those early days when he spent time installing millennium countdown displays in numerous nightclubs, from Guildford to Nuneaton.
Having gone from not being involved in rail passenger information displays to becoming the UK’s number one designer and manufacturer, is, not surprisingly, what James describes as the biggest difference between the company when he joined and its status today.
With Infotec having been involved in hundreds of passenger information projects both in the UK and overseas in locations including New York, Mexico City, Vancouver, and Vietnam, James says he remembers too many to mention. He admits, however, that working on displays in the early days for the-then Midland Mainline and, coming right up to date, for Crossrail, do stick in his mind.
Asked what has made him most proud, he does not refer to any of the products or projects but to the people. “Helping all of the new faces that have worked here to settle in and understand the nature of the industry and the company,” is his answer.
Today, James is responsible for dealing with customers and helping them find the perfect passenger information solution for their needs.
Congratulating him on his long service, Managing Director Tim Court says: “James is a dedicated hard worker and he has played an important role in helping Infotec become the success it now is.
“He is always helpful, to other members of the team and to customers, and great fun to have around. Congratulations on reaching this milestone and thank you for all your work, we are proud to have you as part of our team.”
With regards to the future, James says he looks forward to more customer face-to-face work out in the field.
Here’s to the next 20 years!
The development of railway stations as appealing places in which to shop, eat and drink as well as to catch trains is leading to wider use of passenger information displays designed and manufactured by Infotec Ltd.
Dozens of Scotland’s smaller stations are having passenger information displays and IPH3 terminal servers designed and built by Infotec installed over the coming weeks.
Infotec Limited has installed a suite of state-of-the-art passenger information displays on a static Pendolino train at Virgin’s training centre in Crewe.
The all-round attention paid to quality by Infotec is to be used as the basis for a short film being produced as a case study for the new ISO 9001:2015 quality standard.
Following the success with passengers in showing train loading and formation information on passenger information displays at Euston station in London, Infotec has been commissioned to produce further train loading graphics for First Great Western and Virgin East Coast.
