ABSTRACT
This article reports that Dione PLC, a Buckinghamshire specialist in card payment systems and the Xplorer represents a massive product development programme with the potential for big commercial rewards. By incorporating Bluetooth wireless technology. Xplorer becomes a portable device that can accept card payment at the restaurant table, in the shopping queue or on the doorstep. Dione had a customer waiting for delivery of Xplorer from early in the product design process, said Gavin Howard, Dione's development engineering manager. It was a drop-dead date, said Howard, who found himself with the task of fast-tracking the Xplorer from design into production in the shortest possible time. On one side of Howard were Dione's designers, on the other was Arrk Product Development Group, the British arm of the global prototyping, tooling, moulding and assembly giant.
