to improve passenger information
Through the Rob.In programme, SNCF is reiterating its desire to make passenger information and planning one of the group's areas of excellence within 18 months. To achieve this, SNCF intends to work with innovative startups to improve the tools and processes involved in customer communications.
And this means that there are a very wide range of potential applications! From AI and marketing to Big Data, we'd love to hear any solutions and ideas that could tackle issues linked to passenger information!
Cash prizes of €15,000, €10,000 and €5,000 will be awarded to the three winning startups chosen by the jury.
