The Challenge: "Enhance the SNCF journey".


Theme 1: Create the Best Possible User Experience

Create the best possible user experience, inspire our customers by, for example, using destination content to encourage ideas of where to go and what to do, and to book a travel with new natural interfaces – voice, touch, or text – including messaging/chat bot or connected device approaches like Amazon Echo, integrated with data for a unique and personalized travel booking experience.


Theme 2: Make the Journey a Cool Experience

Mass transit commuters or people travelling long distances (train, car...) spend extended periods in stations before boarding, and especially during the journey. How can they use this time for an enjoyable and positive experience? Being entertained, relaxing, gaming, networking, learning, escaping, working, personal grooming, accessing smart personalized services… Bring your ideas and innovative solutions!


Theme 3: Open for Innovations (Surprise Us)!

Do you have an idea that will improve our journey? Something that we don't know where or how to look, that will make the Voyage extraordinary. We are open to your suggestions!
