RAILWAY INDUSTRY INNOVATION AWARDS 2019

Following our nomination for the Railway Industry Innovation Awards 2019 – we’re very pleased to announce that we won in the Cross-Industry Partnership Award category!

The ARRAKIS platform only began implementation relatively recently with initial versions being recently deployed, so to win an award at such an early stage of this journey is absolutely thrilling.

We’d like to thank our friends at Cross Country for their hard work on the early development of ARRAKIS as well as for joining us at the event – a great afternoon was had by all.

25 YEARS OF NEXUS ALPHA

On Friday, June 21st 2019 – Nexus Alpha Limited officially turned 25! We’ve come a long way. From one person, we’ve grown to around 45 employees over multiple companies, operating over two continents.

To celebrate, we’ve put together a short video – and as you’ll see, we’re only just getting started…

JP MORGAN CORPORATE CHALLENGE

Once again, staff from Nexus Alpha and Nexus Alpha LPS will be running in the JP Morgan Corporate 5.6K Challenge – and to celebrate our 25 years, we’ve designed special running shirts. 

Good luck to all the competitors this year and don’t forget to stretch and hydrate – it looks as if it’s going to be a hot one!

NEXUS ALPHA LPS – GORLESTON MONOLITH

In early April 2019, the Nexus Alpha LPS team supplied a custom-designed monolith in Gorleston-on-Sea for Norfolk County Council, adding to the hundred-plus county-wide display systems supplied over the past few years. The unit features a panel showing local community information, the content of which is managed by the council, together with local real-time bus departures. As well as providing different LCD-based designs, Nexus Alpha LPS (the LPS stands for “Low Power Systems”) is the UK’s leading supplier of real time solar-power customer information displays.  Sustainable displays to support sustainable transport.

NEXUS ALPHA USA

You may or may not know that we actually have a partner company in the US going under the name of Nexus Alpha USA – providing Public Transit Displays and Information Systems. 

We’re pleased to announce that Nexus Alpha now has a new Chief Operating Officer – Sam Hollis. Sam joined the company from the Department of International Trade, so he’s well placed to develop our American arm across the pond. Congratulations Sam!
