The scores are on the boards
The flexibility of Infotec's displays has helped Southeastern keep football fans updated.---
Passengers on Southeastern’s network while England play their all-important World Cup match tonight should be able to keep up with the score, thanks to the train operator’s use of its Infotec passenger information displays.
Southeastern is the key train services operator for commuter and regional services in South East London and Kent. Its trains run along three main routes including High Speed 1 from London St Pancras.
The majority of Southeastern stations have passenger information displays designed and manufactured by Ashby-based Infotec. Among their features is the ability for operators to change the text and visuals displayed, should they wish to do so.
Being able to make changes to individual or groups of Infotec’s displays is usually used by train operators to alert passengers to changes to or disruption of services, but Southeastern has been using it to keep travellers up to date with World Cup results.
They were praised and thanked by passengers on Saturday for posting the score on displays during England’s game against Sweden.
“Glad to see @Se_Railway have got into the spirt of having the World Cup scores on their departure boards Glad to see @Se_Railway have got into the spirt of having the World Cup scores on their departure boards Glad to see @Se_Railway have got into the spirt of having the World Cup scores on their departure boards” said one, another described it as “good work” while others simply said thank for keeping football fans updated.
Photos of displays being used to provide match stats were also posted.
Commenting, Infotec’s Bids and Key Accounts Manager James Lisney said: “It’s great that the flexibility and real-time delivery of information by our displays is being used for this.
“Let’s hope Southeastern has more good news on display tonight!”
