Trapeze looks back on a successful attendance at IT-TRANS – the international conference and exhibition for IT solutions in the field of public passenger transport – held in Karlsruhe, Germany. Countless customers and prospects from the German-speaking countries of Europe, the Middle and Far East and overseas visited the Trapeze booth between 1 and 3 March 2016.
Trapeze presented at booth pioneering innovations and innovative solutions
Operations planning in an understandable and flexible form: With its newest-generation planning system, Trapeze offers comprehensive functionality paired with the convenience of a browser-based, easy-to-use interface. In addition to integrated trip, tour and service planning, the layout template also supports the creation of timetable posters and printed schedule booklets. Thanks to standard interfaces with the upstream and downstream systems, data exchanges are child’s play.
LIO Business Intelligence enhances operating efficiency: Reliable operating data are a valuable source of information for any transport company, for they are the key to improving the quality of services. With its new Business Intelligence tool, Trapeze offers a comprehensive solution in this area. Easy-to-create reports and analyses offer a permanent overview of a company’s performance. They allow the benefits of the ITCS systems of Trapeze to be utilised in the best possible way and operations to be decisively optimised.
Real-time passenger information made easy via App: The new TDI data interface of Trapeze (= Traveller Data Interface) enables transport companies and other service providers to offer passengers online and real-time service data via an App. All the data originate from a single source and are therefore always up-to-date and consistent. Moreover, they can be combined in multiple ways. This allows individualised travel information to be generated with a high level of meaningfulness and accuracy.
Incident management supports dispatchers: With its LIO-IDS system, Trapeze offers dispatchers an entirely new tool for intelligent decision-making support (IDS = Intelligent Decision Support). In case of incidents, LIO-IDS not only displays operations-related information, but also proposes intelligent and correct actions that are independent of the specific situation. The Incident Manager module offers dispatchers, supervisors and shift managers an optimal overview of all current service occurrences. The Workflow Manager module enables work procedures and processes to be defined and allocated to individual incidents.
Broad portfolio for operators and passengers
Furthermore, Trapeze showed at their booth pioneering IT solutions for the public and private bus and rail transport in the areas of planning systems, operations control, on-board equipment, passenger information and ticketing.
Well attended were the Trapeze presentations "How Can History-based Predictions Improve Service Quality?" and "Be-in / Be-out ticketing Enables Seamless Multi-modal Mobility". The corresponding presentations can be requested from firstname.lastname@example.org.
The latest Trapeze planning system is an optimal solution for the driver and vehicle disposition and scheduling. It includes timetable, vehicle, service and shift planning for drivers and vehicles, the employee information and payroll integration.
