RedstoneConnect has been won a contract to help define a digital framework that will shape a smart retail and car parking offering, including the development of a digital retail centre wayfinding app, in Milton Keynes City Centre.
The contract is part of a wider Milton Keynes City Centre redevelopment project that will include refitting existing retail space and developing new car parking facilities, which forms an important component towards Milton Keynes' ambition of becoming a smart city.
The initial phase will see RedstoneConnect set out a framework for the future digital platform for the retail space, covering key aspects such as smart car parking and payment, customer relationship management and digital wayfinding solutions.
In addition, RedstoneConnect has been contracted to develop a digital wayfinding mobile application and interactive kiosk directories, which will support visitors to the existing Milton Keynes retail centre and the surrounding area.
This initial consulting phase of the contract will be completed by October 2016 with additional scope for RedstoneConnect to participate in the build and maintenance of the project during 2017.
