Increasingly Monarch's customers are using multiple screens to book and manage flights. To meet this demand applications for mobile devices were launched in 2013. Since the initial launch the mobile booking service has rapidly evolved to allow customers to easily search and book all scheduled flights, select seating and baggage options and pay through card or PayPal's mobile optimised check-out. The app focuses on making customers' journeys more enjoyable from assisting them in checking the status of a flight, through to directions and traffic reports to the airport, parking, and airport information. The apps have been downloaded by over 100,000 customers and are ranked second amongst UK Airline apps.

This powerful application is a simple five-step process that gives any retailer the ability to generate high quality point of sale printed material, at any size, for each of Gallaher's fifteen tobacco brands. The generated artwork is consistent, on-brand and complies with each of Europe's countries' strict and differing tobacco advertising laws. The user simply selects the brand, country, dimensions, selects whether to include a promotional message, and simply clicks 'download'. The application is a huge cost saver and was very quickly achieving big returns on the initial investment.

Admin tools allow pub owners to add photos, food menus and prices, up coming events and general information. Visitors can also rate the pubs and leave comments.
This application was commissioned by London Borough of Barking & Dagenham with the goal of improving the wellbeing of the district's youth. The website works in tangent with the Connect Youth Rewards Card (given to all 11-19 year olds) by administering data from the ParentPay cashless system (a diner money replacement) and the SmartCitizen loyalty points system. Effectively it's a central hub for managing the card's funds and facilitating the redemption of 'loyalty' points against local youth activities (ten pin bowling, gym admission etc.).
