We travel and we also no bad. Everyone -- chance to capture. You customer -- Europe at this is good -- magnate then young NORAD away. Where Howard -- We are also worried aloud about -- think fits very complex. Was a bit easier on the highlights by the by -- because of the different browser and a different. Found that existing western that very year. User experience to do we are six big their debt manual braces -- made it. Testing and even today -- its nano at a -- we haven't found that they taught there really. Meets our requirements. The last plan believe this and a specific on highlights was the as back up.

Sold we stepped in to visit to demand but chicken -- -- Yassin had so really if they for baggage fees saying they changed end we created at the same time that whether -- mobile clients it's like a mini profile on the mobile. Whether customer again and Europe. That Britain I information -- planned numbering perhaps see the year you could actually seeded at sea bed is used most of the time. And alsop and -- of the name of the cost of -- passengers that they normally booked quick for particular. -- tin man. We have left hundreds of customers that have clearly profiles.

Use with corridor and it's also very it certainly -- compliant how we can go well around this mining that was very yeah. Important that there was San.

People around you have in Tennessee enable -- adds up -- -- -- continuous. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Let's say to agree to -- -- installation sell it and I would be great opportunity. With kind of limited. Then afterwards OK mobile we're -- both of their needs for back end should the -- looking at mobile working. I think -- our executives. We -- -- a bit then -- map towards. They believe -- member. In net basis is just a shift is that yes it's working basis less people working on the where -- -- doing on -- -- That we added in its fourth I would have collectively can definitely sell let's not just a shift. Bad that it is working with -- sulphide -- on the -- West Bank. We get a -- business -- 900 poking. Average drifted up 300 dollars for picking. Really.

And efficient for the customs. -- when a customer -- -- -- -- information outgoing if you see of the -- -- in my fight they don't have to register for -- notification to the advice if you folks will add delete it picked up automatically follows the processor -- in place on power. What to do look to book is about one -- -- one -- which is. OK let those numbers and tip April 4 2012 but they just if we look at their flights which are Moore's bubble. In the last year. So all of this is that winning turn an adversary on the other say they -- apple employee mobile -- -- -- being give up for pilots for a ban the inflation agents they can now. They don't they have now where they can -- the bear of the -- they would work timing -- kind of things like that. And we -- results or people looking -- mobile -- people -- those things we can do about and customer mobile platform. Sold. We look at our back end from. We have to make a decision about where their mobile enterprise application -- we look at different option -- -- now. We we're all working in silence we have people working on the employee side of mobile. Assets -- the customer and so we kind of sad to get anything is there something can we bring our expertise. Together. And and work the same directions from our five people in the T -- Start. Real in looking back do we wanna go where I wasn't our favourite choice near if there was a lot of that give poorer developing. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- It wasn't -- -- you -- because we went with a -- -- their mobile applications. -- OK so we get -- diligent. We. But while last year we did installation on our servers last July. About 2 PM power. Racking enrollment can now French I don't know if so that expression. Yes it will be -- one we're comfortable with our well being able to -- up wireless -- for a bit different now brass ucits that one. -- -- You distribute to -- -- have to make some tweaking factor. I think that's -- whether -- weighted gold. The outside the -- bank decided instead of giving -- and irritable will -- on developing internally. So I'll. We've never done mobile development internally fell. First two added together it's quite an experience that sue will you'll see the result -- on something. Soft. It's thought Ramos there but I think -- that. The thing is so when you go that direction you have to initiate that paparazzi anyway west into. -- -- -- -- -- -- Ralston defined roles -- responsibility can see the on everything now we're trying to bring everything on our side. -- -- said -- -- -- -- Hewitt -- every -- and which is gonna move ahead with our strategy. We have we have -- and to hand with valley where does it make sense there would be part of the -- -- men and -- even the we we we when we -- you widespread personal mobile. Am I -- upper west mad at somebody that develop mobile absolutely right now you really need. Really need together expertise in the mobile love them. Our -- We also have to we didn't include architects need initially but -- wisely -- a look at our. Everything you do it needs to -- PCI compliance again -- all of these things. End to the executives say -- -- have clear if ever I get. Equally around the expectation. -- -- -- -- is that at all. Bob will be faster to market will develop license going to be available -- that the more about that plan. Eventually is going to be like it's. That we need to do -- we need to do allow that have tweaking -- expect patient needs to be very clear of well defined went down. -- -- I can say when -- can have various on the personal side. They're too because soon you're -- so now we have throughout the out of let's say fifteen different on mobile. Forward -- tablets. But when you are the testing relies on -- -- You have to be able much more than bad and the ability upgraded your mobile devices that as we know it did changes. Folks it's. It's something to think about when you go that direction. Care for a the next that -- buffer through rate. It took awhile but now mobile isn't the end of our executives or whenever project inspired love -- buys by the year's sale came on balance. -- -- -- Maybe we'll do something maybe would want. But now it's integrated into other projects and we're able to really do its strategy. Then and that -- we're. Which we've managed to convince our executives and everything is. Lombard should now be seen as a comfort base -- addition to our the other projects that I've been unloved by simply seen. As a different strategy at this on budget and overhead because. We at where can now we used to be. Paying you to -- that things and mobile few years ago when we're pretty much the first ones in North America. Then and now we're just like. -- bid behind. Then it. Things change so rapidly that even though you have something in India -- one of why now neither they would have a stadium for five years -- not bad for a system that. -- for everybody -- the reality after -- of -- areas energy every six months one year and -- be proactive to watch went into. Then passed away by red eyed actor I would just like the organisation -- Raleigh reminds. And mobile even -- speaking. More MySpace. And they're creating -- that -- -- looking at. The future. What is more buying. Aspiring to rented -- some bad standards. So whatever -- they're working in the same direction developing the same -- -- the amp. When it comes for example that communication if -- -- if you able to get mobile phone number. Into actually analogies that passenger -- liquid. Market and we share that phone number with the other. Yeah right if you have a connection very weak -- United Airlines for example. Well I we allow that assures that mobile phone number if the Euro -- patients on nano on us. So are these little things working together and having standards just gonna make -- broader mobile side with -- reminds her. Now have a better experience for -- customs.
