Display Interactive is a French company with 10+ years of experience, coming from the digital world. We used to work with large consumer brands to fuel their customer experience with the latest technology innovations, delivering new services and applications or creating disruptive PoCs for their R&D centres.
Leveraging our long-standing relationship with these blue chip company and French airlines, we refocused our company on the aero market in 2013 and launched the first version of our UGO wireless product at AIX 2014.
This best-in-class wireless IFE software has much evolved since that time, and it still remains our main product. Hard to believe, but we kept the name UGO, even if it is now much more comprehensive than its launch version.
And actually, we have not just kept its name. Thanks to our customers’ feedbacks and thousands of hours of operations in multiple business environments, we have also preciously preserved its unique software design. It has demonstrated its ability to support always-changing airlines’ and passengers’ requirements, as well as its capacity to run on multiple hardware platforms or in diverse connectivity environments.
We now provide our customers with three to four releases per year, packed with new features and performance upgrades, seamlessly deployed on their fleet). Each one is built upon the same technical design, which makes UGO so scalable and unique on the market. By the way, all our software is developed in-house, under the strict control of our CTO and our lead developers – and goes through an incredibly tight acceptance process.
Since the birth of our company, we have also maintained our business mindset (we believe that cooperation is essential to deliver successfully) and consolidated our business ecosystem in all fields related to IFEC – from Content Service Providers to MROs, from Aircraft Manufacturers to Inflight Connectivity Providers.
Our industry is not only a competitive one, it is also a very large family, and we love creating those special bonds, over time, so meeting with our customers, prospects, colleagues and friends during our annual shows in Hamburg, Singapore or Los Angeles is always a pleasure.
Finally, even if it was a long time ago, we are coming from the high-tech and the media industries. We are definitely used to fast market cycles and disruptive environments. So we always have a pinch at heart when airlines ground their fleet and cease operations, but we also know that new ones are created, or existing ones reinvent themselves, with new distinctive positioning, new aspirations, and new challenges ahead.
We have been lucky enough to participate into such launches in our small history, and it is a real thrill for all of us at Display Interactive.
