60 seconds with GlobalView Systems' Matthew Johnston

GlobalView Systems' research and development manager, Matthew Johnston, discusses his career in developing software applications for the radio industry

How do you spend most of your time at work?

I have active projects myself which I am coding, and I manage a growing team of developers that adhere to Agile software development principles. We are constantly improving our existing solutions, while creating bespoke or new products for our customers.

What’s the one gadget that you can’t live without?

My phone – I would be lost without it.

Describe your most unforgettable project.

I flew first-class to the Caribbean to help a yacht client. I spotted a simple settings issue which took around five minutes to fix. Due to flight timings, I spent the rest of the week at the beach.

How does producing software that integrates with two-way radio differ from the other projects you’ve worked on?

We are much more end-user-focused in our software design. I have designed robots, tracking systems and electronic solutions. The challenge of developing end-user value is an interesting one.

Where do you see room for more integration between two-way radios and IT systems?
