Tomizone signs Christchurch International Airport

Tomizone signs Christchurch International Airport - strengthening international transport portfolio

Tomizone Limited (ASX: TOM) today announced it has signed a new contract with Christchurch International Airport Limited. The signing reinforces the company’s successful technology delivery and positions it well for the continued focus and expansion into the lucrative transport market vertical. Christchurch Airport is New Zealand’s second largest airport and the gateway to the South Island. Tomizone Lightswitch® software powers the largest airports in Australia (Sydney), New Zealand (Auckland), Fiji (Nadi), and another five airports in those countries.

With six million passengers travelling in and out of Christchurch Airport annually, Tomizone will power the in-venue experience for one of New Zealand’s busiest and most strategic air connections. Under the deal, Tomizone will provide WiFi capabilities to the airport’s entire international and domestic terminals, including its new theatre and event space. In the months preceding the new contract, 180,000 monthly free WiFi sessions were recorded and that number is expected to grow with increased capacity and footfall at the venue.

Steve Simms, Tomizone CEO, reinforced the importance of the transport market vertical to deliver against Tomizone’s international growth strategy saying: “A continued focus for the company is expanding our footprint in core market verticals including transport and today’s announcement further solidifies our position as a dominant market player in the WiFi software industry. With international passenger movements growing strongly, we expect this vertical to deliver strong revenue for the company”.

For Christchurch Airport, the partnership with Tomizone will create important digital connections with consumers and unlock insight and analytics through in-venue digital experiences offered through its cloud-hosted Lightswitch® software platform, complementing the airport company’s objectives to deliver content through the WiFi service.

Todd Cassie, airport Manager of Knowledge and Information Technology, commented on the partnership saying: “Implementing Tomizone across the terminals proved to be an excellent success prior to entering this new contract and now the next stage of our relationship gives us access to greater capability to engage with our customers. Our users love the ease of getting Internet access and we see this as a vital tool as a leading tourism gateway. The WiFi experience enhances our position significantly with consumers and the analytics allows us to better understand them”.
