Taking technology to the road
As we all know, gone are the days where technology is limited to a computer and desk within four walls.
As we all know, gone are the days where technology is limited to a computer and a desk within four walls. It’s stating the obvious to say that the world of computing is increasingly ever-present, connected and mobile.
More so than ever, we’re observing that our customers are really pushing the limits of what has been done before in order to bring the technology to their customers, wherever their customers happen to be. And quite often it’s not just at work or at home in front of a computer.There is a whole new realm to be exploited through technologies such as touch computing.
Of course, what this means for Intergen is that our staff get to build cool, shiny and interactive applications that are engaging, good looking and easy to use, and – it goes without saying – they get to play with all the newest technologies while they’re at it.
It made complete sense for TicketDirect to make the most of new technologies available to them, including creating a prototype for a web platform hosted entirely in the cloud, using Windows Azure, and touch screen technology that now allows ticket buyers to order, pay for and print their rugby tickets at kiosks while shopping at The Warehouse.
Designed and developed by Intergen, the kiosks provide a one-stop shop for ticketing transactions and an engaging and interactive advertisement for upcoming events. Technology (and marketing) brought right to the punters!
The Navy Bus
How do you showcase a career with the Navy, when the key audience – school leavers – is scattered right across the country, and the majority of the Navy’s work happens out at sea and over the horizon?
For the Navy, the answer is simple – bring a fully kitted out, interactive bus to the people. Brought in with two and a half weeks until the bus was due to hit the road, Intergen was enlisted to create the touch displays for the new NavalDisplay unit. Armed with the Windows Presentation Foundation toolkit, Intergen helped create an engaging interactive touch experience for potential recruits, working with Saatchi and Saatchi for the look and feel.
The real Navy culture and environment has been brought right up close – through quizzes, video clips and interactive tours, and the bus is on the road right now.
