Initial Situation

Large notice boards and operating information that had to be retrieved from various file systems: the drivers at Aargau Verkehr AG (AVA) in the Swiss canton of Aargau had only restricted, local access to information and had to rely on the manual exchange of paper documents. Dissemination of information was a cumbersome, logistically complex process. The same applied to documentation about providing the information.

Objectives

AVA aimed to provide drivers with more up-to-date information faster and with less logistical complexity. A tablet solution was intended to enable drivers to use waiting and turn times for information, e-learning and communication. At the same time, operating information individually tailored to the respective driver was to be made possible, thus helping to ensure increased employee satisfaction.


"With the IVU.pad, we can digitalise the entire work flow of our drivers. All the key information is available in fully electronic format. This saves lots of time and paper and ensures more efficient processes and more up-to-date information. There was also the opportunity to help shape the IVU.pad during product development, and we have clearly benefited from this."
Andreas Kleiner
Head of Dispatching/Planning | Aargau Verkehr AG

The integrated interfaces connect the IVU.pad to the corresponding peripheral systems and ensure seamless data transfer. The various information obligations in bus and rail transport are also taken into account.

Outcome

The IVU.pad was rolled out smoothly within just 6 months. It has been very well received by the drivers, who are also permitted to take it home. Further functions of the IVU.pad will be gradually implemented in the subsequent project phases. These include damage reports, an e-learning module and functions of the employee portal of IVU.crew, like the duty sign-on.
