“One of the key challenges that we face with such a disparate workforce is communicating key information in a timely and efficient manner. Through the development of Avanti Connect, we now have a great tool at our disposal that enables us to instantly distribute targeted comms and documentation across our organisation – whether this is key operational information regarding coronavirus, celebrating the successes of our brilliant employees or publishing the latest policies and guidelines.

uTrack have been a pleasure to work with throughout the delivery of this project. Frequently they have gone above and beyond to deliver to tight timescales, whilst maintaining a great level of professionalism and an unwavering commitment to following their proven delivery methodology. We look forward to collaborating with them further as we look to tackle critical business issues with digital solutions.”

Alexander Reilly-Jones, IT Project Manager, Avanti Trains

We have a long- lasting relationship with First Group and our employee app is being used across all their divisions in the UK and the US. Working with Avanti is another testament of our success of deploying large scale value adding apps that make employees lives easier every day.”
