Amtrak makes use of iphone development as a service tool ********************************* It has been in news that Amtrak has decided to use iPhone development as a service tool in the train and conductors are being trained in it. Amtrak is the government owned organization that takes care of the country’s railroad service and since November has been training ticket conductors to use iPhone as electronic ticket scanner. iPhone application development allows iphone to be used as a ticket scanner on a couple of routes that includes routes from Boston to San Jose and Portland and California to Sacramento. It is estimated that by summer almost 1,700 conductors are going to be using devices on Amtrak trains and this would undoubtedly benefit the customers in a big way. Now, passengers traveling in trains can look forward to printing tickets or even loading a special bar code on their respective smart phone screens, which would enable conductors to scan. That’s not all the conductors will also be able to keep a track of the total number of passengers that are on board. What is really efficient about using iPhone applications development, as a service tool is that one doesn’t need to print the document and bring it with oneself. Matt Hardison, the chief of sales distribution at Amtrak stated that they have made plenty of improvements for both customers and Amtrak. Amtrak is not the only organization that is using iPhone development to improvise operations as there are many more in the market that have started to use mobile phones to help improve the level of service. Organizations are realizing the importance of using smart phones and the various applications that these phones include for improvising services and streamlining operators. There have been reports that even some of the pilots are now using iPads instead of flight manuals in the cockpit to help know any particular aspect during the flight. Not only pilots, a growing number of police departments are also using iPhones to help identify the potential suspects. Medical professionals are finding iPads extremely handy for accessing patient information, records and X-ray charts. With so many different industries understanding the importance of using iPhone application development and iPads for streamlining processes, it doesn’t come as a surprise that the railway could not lag behind too. Hence, now passengers can enjoy digitized check-in process that was long overdue in an era when online flight booking and other online bookings have become so popular. There are iphone developers that are now creating tailor made iphone development applications that would cater to the specific requirements of different industries. There are undoubtedly certain challenges attached to it because where trains are concerned passengers get into the train and also get off at different platforms, which is just the opposite of what happens at the airport where people check in once to board a flight. In order to counter this challenge, the new iPhone powered system enables conductors to monitor check-in in real time. This process helps them in manage the seating and in case passengers do not show up then the seats can be filled with other passengers.
