Session Description

In July 2016 Star Wars Celebration and the new Ghostbusters film arrived in the UK. Forbidden Planet had the largest retailer stand at the Exhibition and we were the preferred retailer for Sony’s Ghostbusters promotion in Waterloo Station. We produced a till app that would take transactions and issue stock requests to our warehouse and sell limited tickets for the film for Sony. During the 2 day event, 12 tills sold a product every 4 seconds.


The system was built in 3 days and was deployed 100% to iPads using FileMaker Go.


This session will demonstrate how we rapid develop, plan, test and deploy with tight deadlines without using the force.
