Clear skies ahead for Dublin Airport’s VIP system

When all the code is written, and the client has finally signed off on a project, the biggest milestone lies ahead - the go live date.

Dublin Airport Ltd.You can dot every i and cross every t but that go live date will still feel monumental. Our testing process is as rigorous as they come but real world conditions can and do throw up the most surprising things. Will passenger numbers overwhelm the servers? Will multiple cross-system requests result in lost transactions?


Thankfully, everything went smoothly.

Of course not all issues with a new system are down to implementation. Sometimes feedback brings a new perspective to even the most meticulous design process and it’s something all of us at Meantime are aware of. A bespoke system is often the best solution simply because it takes the individual into account. It’s the reason why our experience helps us work with clients to mitigate against this outcome.

So imagine if the client wants to design a new checking-in system. The aim is to speed things up. But as part of the design process they use their own, desk-based experience. Imagine a checking-in system which wasn’t fully mobile? One in which phone-based users must navigate a site designed for full width screens. Some customers might persevere, but most wouldn’t.

Meantime worked closely with Dublin Airport. Our experience dovetailed with theirs and vice-versa to ensure all the features and procedures were thoroughly thought through and implemented. Many software developers pay lip-service to 'being part of the team' but only companies such as Meantime can point at over a decade of testimonials to confirm it.

Because everything we build is bespoke, you might not see exactly what you need. If that’s the case please get in touch. We'd be happy to discuss how we can help you to take the first step to cutting costs and growing beyond all expectations.
