LONDON, October 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Gatwick Airport, the UK's second largest airport has appointed leading mobile marketing and technology company, Incentivated, to optimise its website to work across all mobile phones, including tablets.
The mobile website will provide users with a real time information source while they're on the go. From live flight information to key airport information parking and all in a format which is mobile and tablet friendly.
Gatwick chose Incentivated after a competitive pitch process and aims to deliver a mobile site integrated with Episerver using HTML5, optimised across multiple presentation layers and delivering implicit and explicit personalisation, driven in part, by user location identification.
Matthew Wilkinson, Senior eCommerce Manager at Gatwick, said "We are delighted Incentivated is on board. Communicating with our passengers via mobile technology is an important part of the ways we are improving the passenger experience as they journey to, through and from our airport. Incentivated is a well-recognised industry leader in this field who will help us realise our mobile strategy."
Jonathan Bass, Managing Director at Incentivated "We are delighted to have won this opportunity to create a fully integrated mobile site for Gatwick airport. Holidaymakers and business travellers take their phone with them when going abroad and Gatwick Airport recognises this. This site will allow us to bring a wide range of location-based and personalisation technologies together to deliver another really useful mobile experience."
