The Hippodrome, on the corner of Charing Cross Road and Leicester Square, first opened on 15 January 1900, with a circus and variety show that included live polar bears, elephants and an illuminated pool containing 100,000 gallons of water that could shoot fountains of water to the roof.

The initial focus for CAFM Explorer, Idox's leading integrated facilities management solution, will be Helpdesk & Planned Maintenance tasks across the four-storey casino and theatre venue. The flexibility of the software will allow The Hippodrome to expand their implementation in the future at no additional cost.

Joely Drummond, New Business Manager, commented, "Idox are delighted to welcome such a recognisable venue as the Hippodrome as a customer. We look forward to working with the facilities department and helping to maintain one of London's most popular attractions."
