One standard system
for individual needs
Using buses and trains better
Every day is filled with complex tasks for railway companies: creating timetables, planning vehicle schedules, organising duties, operating trains, managing data and much more. These complex tasks require specialists with the right training and the right tools. IVU.rail maps a railway company’s operational processes in their entirety, offering a suitable solution for every task.
The future of mobility is electric. Transport operators face many challenges, such as determining power supply requirements, planning and building charging stations, adjusting vehicle workings to suit ranges, integrating charging times, monitoring the state of charge (SoC) and infrastructure, planning charging processes, dispatching in realtime and learning from the data.
IVU offers a one-stop solution for everything, from the control centre system and the on-board computer software to the device itself. This ensures uninterrupted data flows and smooth processes.
Planning vehicle schedules and duties is a demanding task. The ability to deploy all resources properly and as effectively as possible poses a real challenge. But the potential here is significant: Making vehicle and duty schedules even just a few percent more efficient can save bus operators and railway companies a lot of money – for trains and (electric) buses alike.
The IVU.pad is a constant companion for drivers, customer service advisors and office-based staff. The mobile app keeps them in the loop – any time, any place. Important documents such as duty schedules, handbooks and forms are always available.
This is what
our customers say
"The completion of this very ambitious project is a milestone in the ongoing digitalisation of DB Regio's core processes. The fact that we now work with the same system in our transport networks makes consistent planning and dispatch, from vehicle scheduling to personnel deployment, much easier."
"Together with IVU, we want to make the path to electromobility as simple and straightforward as possible for transport operators. The deployment-tested overall eMobility system is suitable for any type of fleet – be it 10 electric buses or large mixed fleets of more than 1000 vehicles."
"With IVU, we have reached a new level of transparency and flexibility in duty scheduling and optimisation. IVU.rail has enabled us to find the genuinely optimum solution and increase our productivity on a long-term basis."
"Thanks to the excellent optimisation core of the IVU.suite, we have achieved high savings. It was easy to make the decision to standardise the scheduling and dispatch across the Group as a whole using the IVU system to use synergies and make the best possible use of our resources."
"Our aim is clear: we want even more people to be excited about climate-friendly rail travel. Digitalisation plays a key role here. IT systems such as IVU.rail make it possible for us to resolve challenges in the daily planning for our trains with the best possible solutions for travellers. This allows us to manage transport more efficiently and reduce delays."
"The introduction of IVU.rail has been a real game changer for the digitisation and modernisation of the UK rail industry. The wide-ranging scope, and extensive functional capabilities of IVU.rail present further opportunities for MTREL to explore a fully integrated end-to-end solution."
“We have had excellent experience with IVU’s planning solutions over many years and value IVU as a highly competent partner. Hosting in IVU.cloud will also help us to save time and resources so that we can better concentrate on our core business.”
“We strive to run a punctual, reliable and safe railway for our customers and IVU.rail is improving our ability to do so. Historically, we have used technology that doesn’t integrate, impacting our ability to make efficient and consistent operational decisions. IVU.rail gives us the most up-to-date information, so we can respond to disruption quickly and deliver an even greater level of service to our customers.”
"The modernisation of the passenger information was particularly challenging on account of the size of the bus stations, but also the specific Belgian requirements. Thanks to the IVU solution, we now have a central system for all data transmission for the control centre and passenger information in one."
"Thanks to the newly deployed IVU.rail functionality, we can now dispatch all of our employees consistently and efficiently using a single system. At the same time, IVU.pad’s intuitive and user-friendly interface benefits our employees and improves communication between the train crew supervisors and our drivers, passenger service assistants, station staff and others, ultimately resulting in a better train travel experience for our passengers."
"Thanks to IVU.suite, we can align and centrally manage our processes. This allows us to achieve a very high level of efficiency and makes life easier for our employees. This is a major step for us towards positioning us for future growth and the challenges on the market."
"Introducing IVU.rail for all our long-haul and regional rail transport after the introduction with the Copenhagen S-Train means we will be able to align our planning and dispatching processes throughout the network. This simplifies our system landscape, increases operational quality, and saves valuable resources at the same time."
“We are fully convinced that IVU.rail is the right system to support our business and that IVU is the right partner now and in the future to increase our efficiency and continue our process of digitalization.”
“This system is one of the most important digitalisation projects for the company: it will be used for planning train journeys and staff workload. This solution will allow the company to analyse everyday operations and increase efficiency by taking away the burden of manual activities and excessive paperwork.”
"Thanks to the introduction of IVU.suite across our whole operation we will benefit from a completely integrated IT system landscape for all our processes. This will make practically every step easier, save an enormous amount of resources, and in the process further improve public transport in Baden-Wuerttemberg."
"The collaboration with IVU has gone really well. Instead of coordinating multiple suppliers, we receive the entire service from a single source with the IVU.cloud, allowing us to respond quickly to changes and adapt the system flexibly."
"The preparation of replacement and emergency transport is a very fast-moving business with numerous changes at short notice. That's why we opted for a powerful software solution that can precisely evaluate and optimally process a very wide variance of data – IVU.rail."
"The integrated approach of IVU.suite convinced us. We will be able to standardise our software landscape and will have everything available from a single source. With IVU, we have gained an experienced partner for long-term cooperation in order to optimally position ourselves for future developments."
"That we would be able to bring the system into productive operation on time after only six months was by no means a given and indicates the high performance of the IVU.suite."
