London, UK | March 31, 2014– Mezzo is pleased to announce that is has been appointed as an official reseller of the MI Airline Connected Crew app. The app has been specifically designed for the aviation industry for use on mobile devices and provides airlines with advances in on-board retail, passenger insight and crew productivity.

The Connected Crew app works with Android mobile devices, such as mobile phones, tablets and phablets, and delivers functionality that helps cabin crew to deliver an enhanced customer service.  The app complements other Mezzo products and services, including its popular in-flight entertainment (IFE) app, as well as the development of bespoke apps, extending the company’s offerings and allowing Mezzo to offer a comprehensive range of solutions for airlines.

Says Dave Sampson, CEO of Mezzo, “The MI Airline Connected Crew app is a ready-made solution for airlines wanting to operate a passenger-centric approach.  It allows airlines of all sizes to deliver services that will earn them a 5 star rating from their passengers.” He continues, “The simple act of making a 7” tablet a part of the cabin crew’s uniform and daily routine can bring about significantly improved crew efficiency, enhanced customer service, and most importantly, increased revenue for the airline.”

With the Connected Crew app, an airline can make its passenger and operational data directly available to its cabin crew.  It gives point of sale functionality integrated with existing passenger relationship and flight data.  The app relieves staff of inefficient paperwork and instead gives them a modern, technological approach to customer service right in their hands.

Job Heimerikx, CEO of MI Airline, says, “We are delighted to have Mezzo on board with us. They have been providing solutions to the aviation industry for 10 years now, and have an enviable track record of developing and delivering exciting apps on tablets and mobile devices.”

– Cases are designed to enhance in-flight and on-board passenger entertainment experience

April 20, 2012– Mezzo is pleased to announce the launch of a new range of Corlan cases. The cases have been commissioned and designed specifically to fit the range of Samsung Galaxy tablets, which Mezzo provides to airlines and other travel operators.

Due to its Gold Partner membership of the Samsung Enterprise Alliance Program (SEAP), Mezzo has been able to work closely with Samsung to develop the range of cases. The Samsung Enterprise Research Institute (SERI) in the UK provided collaborative assistance in the initial development stages of the Mezzo solution. The patent-pending cases are manufactured exclusively for Mezzo by Iota Sigma, a company in Newport, Wales. In a nod to both their Welsh heritage and their function, the cases have been named “Corlan” as it is the Welsh word for “fold”.

Says Dave Sampson, Mezzo CEO, “Samsung tablets are ideal for deployment with passengers, either unconnected or in Wi-Fi networked areas, and when combined with the new Mezzo Corlan case, those passengers get an even better entertainment, shopping, advertising or interactive experience.”

The external Corlan case acts as a screen cover to protect against scratching during transport and has been approved by Hollywood studios’ security teams for its ability to withstand abuse, and in particular hacking or interference with the software and content.

With three SD cards mounted in a caddy and integrated into the case, the limited memory capacity issue that faces consumer off the shelf tablets is negated. The SD memory cards are quick and easy to remove for upgrading, changing the content or for downloading captured data.

The cases have an integral stand that gives the user two options: a fully variable viewing angle; and a rigid position, suitable for easy typing and data entry or game play.
