LONDON (ShareCast) - (Sharecast News) - Crimson Tide jumped on Thursday after signing new contracts of a value amounting to almost £0.25m with Northern Rail and Arriva UK Trains subsidiary Chiltern Railways.
The contracts will see Crimson Tide supply the rail businesses with mpro5, an app that allows companies to manage their remote workforces, and were won via the company's partner Graphite Partners, with assistance from OEM partner Samsung Electronics.
Barrie Whipp, executive chairman, said: "Following the development of our relationship with our partners we have entered another vertical market where mpro5 can deliver value and measurable ROI. With an expanding channel strategy we are able to get mpro5 in front of the right people, in the right context at the right time."
The AIM traded company said Chiltern Railways will use mpro5 for mobile auditing of its train presentation, while Northern Rail, which committed to a five-year agreement, will use the app for staff management and station presentation.
Denis O'Sullivan, train presentation manager for Chiltern Railways, said: "This enables us to focus on the required areas for improvement without having to trawl through large amounts of data. The prospects for the mpro5, Samsung and Chiltern Rail partnership in terms of potential seem endless."
Crimson Tide's shares were up 9.62% at 2.85p at 0945 GMT.
