Telefónica O2, UK

Heathrow Airport, UK

As Europe’s busiest airport Heathrow Airport employs around 7000 operations staff most of whom are shift based to provide 24/7 service to the airlines and passengers. The non-stop nature of Heathrow and a non-desk based workforce combine to create a significant internal communications challenge.

When asked how internal communication could be improved Heathrow employees themselves suggested a mobile app to deliver daily content to all operational staff and facilitate real time feedback.

After receiving expensive quotations from bespoke app development houses, Heathrow’s Internal Comms Team connected with TheAppBuilder to rapidly develop and launch a private internal comms app for a fraction of the cost.

With high usage levels and extremely positive feedback it is clear Heathrow Operations staff love the app, and the comms team love the fact they’ve been able to devolve content ownership to local teams using TheAppBuilder’s non-technical CMS to keep the app updated daily.

The team at Heathrow clearly see that the possibilities for apps are endless and the benefits significant. Several non-technical departments within Heathrow are already developing additional apps and ideas on TheAppBuilder platform.
