Talk Title: Connexionz Export Journey
Connexionz provides real time passenger information systems to public transport operators. The company started by developing a system for Christchurch and has leveraged that to create solutions for customers in NZ, Australia and the United States. These are complex, high-touch systems and they are a long way from home. This talk is a frank discussion of where we succeed and the ways we are trying to rise up to meet the challenges when we fall short.
