Torghatten: Standardised scheduling and dispatch in the cloud across multiple companies

Torghatten ASA is one of Norway’s largest transport operators. The group runs several bus and ferry services alongside regional airlines, providing reliable means of getting its passengers to the very furthest reaches of the country. Having witnessed the benefits at its subsidiary Norgesbuss, the parent company Torghatten decided to introduce IVU.suite to some of its other subsidiaries as well.

By migrating to IVU.suite, Torghatten was aiming to cut down on the number of different systems used within the group and establish standardised processes across all its constituent companies. Optimisation in particular was intended to make vehicle and personnel deployment more efficient. At the same time, the group wanted to reduce the workload involved in technical software maintenance by outsourcing hosting.

The IVU products make it possible to establish an entirely digital workflow. The entire system is hosted and maintained by IVU as part of IVU.cloud. With the aid of IVU.xpress, a special introduction process, it was also possible to provide the standard system within a short space of time.

All subsidiaries were in a position to handle their complete scheduling processes with IVU.suite after a project term of only about a year. Operational workflows in scheduling and dispatch have been streamlined and are now standardised across the entire company.
