“ I joined Irish Rail in 2012 which was my first encounter with the rail Industry and attended the Terrapin Revenue Management conference later that year. This was my initial experience in meeting and networking with other operators and vendors which provided a deep insight into best practice capabilities to improve customer experiences and grow revenues. I am delighted that in April 2017, Irish Rail successfully launched our new Customer First sales, distribution, revenue management and CRM platforms replacing the existing and dated legacy systems whilst introducing dynamic pricing capabilities for the first time. This solution was delivered through a consortium which included Cubic Transportation Systems, Sqills & Rail Solutions, all of whom I had occasion to meet for the first time at the 2012 conference. ”
