Integrated Rail Control Centre for SWEG
Complete integration of rail operations – in order to keep its passengers up to date with real-time information and to quickly process short-notice changes or disruptions, SWEG has relied on the software system Integrated Rail Control Centre from IVU.rail since the beginning of 2023.
In 2022, the Südwestdeutsche Landesverkehrs-GmbH (SWEG) launched a long-term strategic partnership with IVU to modernise its entire bus and rail transport. Following the successful introduction of scheduling and dispatch, SWEG now also implements the seamlessly connected software system Integrated Rail Control Centre from IVU.rail in its rail control centres in Offenburg (Ortena district) and Gammertingen (Sigmaringen district).
The transport operator is thereby able to compare timetables, calculate predictions, and process modifications and disruptions, all in one system. Additionally, reliable passenger information can be directly transmitted from the control centre to passengers, who can stay informed quickly and easily via web, app, or display screen in real-time. IVU runs all these operative systems on a high-performance Kubernetes cluster in the IVU.cloud.
"The Integrated Rail Control Centre from IVU.rail opens up many new possibilities for us in our operations and at the same time saves us numerous work steps", says Timo Remlinger, Head of SWEG's Digitalisation/ITCS/Sales Technology division. "I am particularly glad that we can now keep our passengers informed in a more direct, and therefore significantly faster manner."
"SWEG is another satisfied customer productively implementing our new rail control centre", says Perry Prust, Head of the Rail division at IVU Traffic Technologies. "I am confident that many more transport operators will follow this example and profit from the enormous advantages of completely integrated rail operations."
IVU Traffic Technologies has been providing efficient and environmentally friendly public transport for over 45 years with more than 800 engineers. The integrated standard products of the IVU.suite map all the processes of bus and rail companies: from planning and dispatching to operations control, ticketing and passenger information, right through to the settlement of transport contracts. In close partnership with our customers, we lead demanding IT projects to success and therefore ensure reliable mobility in the metropolises of the world.
