The end-to-end solution for bus and rail
An integrated, one-stop solution – IVU.suite offers the right support for all fields of activity of bus and rail companies: from planning, dispatch, fleet management, ticketing and passenger information through to the settlement of transport contracts.
IVU.suite maps all the operational processes performed by transport operators, offering a suitable solution for every task. With the IVU.suite, bus operators and railway companies achieve more, allowing them to establish an end-to-end digital workflow and integrate all operational areas – from planners through to drivers. Whether they use an end-to-end solution or stand-alone products, all data remains in a single system. This ensures efficiency – on the road, on tracks and in the control centre.
One standard system
for individual needs
Achieving success together
Software and services from a single source
Our implementation process allows you to plan your project more easily and ensures a rapid go-live.
Even after implementation, our highly skilled contact persons will be available at all times.
Optimisation as a driver of efficiency –
calculating highly complex scenarios in seconds
The potential is significant: Making vehicle and duty schedules just a few percent more efficient can save bus operators and railway companies a lot of money. IVU.suite’s optimisation solutions help you to create complex vehicle and duty schedules in just a short space of time and make the most out of the available resources.
Together with our partners from LBW Optimization, we develop powerful algorithms designed to achieve optimum results. Whether you want to optimise your duties and vehicle schedules in a single process, adjust existing schedules in a matter of seconds or calculate scenarios for tenders, IVU.suite gives you the efficiency you need.
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 seamless combination of all data and areas of work in IVU.rail makes our processes significantly more efficient. Thanks to the great dedication of our employees, we carried out the system changeover quickly and successfully together with IVU despite the current situation."
"We are delighted to be extending our partnership with IVU further. If we are to effectively embrace the mobility transition, we need to overcome boarding issues. Switching to the IVU.cloud will assist us in this area. For many passengers, cashless payment is not only more convenient but also faster than paying with cash."
"Thanks to its efficient schedule planning and duty scheduling, IVU.rail is perfectly suited to our requirements and can therefore be introduced without any modifications in no time at all. The software’s continuous flow of data will also help with the setting up of our new EVU traffic control centre."
"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."
"Having our vehicles, conductors and train drivers in one integrated system opens up numerous opportunities for us to further develop our disruption management, resource optimisation and data-driven operations – a very good solution for the future."
"Thanks to the integrated planning and scheduling of IVU.rail, we can now standardise many of our previously manual tasks in a digital process and thus work much more efficiently. This will increase our competitiveness, especially with regard to our targeted growth in the European market."

With IVU, we have gained an experienced partner for long-term cooperation in order to optimally position ourselves for future developments."
"The introduction of this kind of system in so many control centres at once represents a mammoth task. We are delighted to have taken this important step, and, together with IVU, we will now work on exploiting the full potential of this application."
"The switch to IVU.cloud was a success. We now have a sustainable, extremely scalable and future-proof solution for supplying data to timetable information services throughout Germany. Thanks to IVU, DELFI is one of the first in Europe to provide the national timetable in the NeTEx EU profile."
"To create a forward-looking passenger transport, we have chosen flexible, high-performance solutions that keep pace with our requirements. In IVU.rail, we have found a system that provides us with the optimum support in order to meet increasing requirements."
"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."
"We were particularly impressed by the scope of services and the usability of IVU.rail. We are delighted to have IVU, an experienced partner, for this ambitious project, one of the world’s largest IT projects in the rail industry."
"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."
"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."
"IVU.suite has enabled us to roll out a solution throughout Switzerland and to establish uniform standardised processes. Nevertheless, we are still flexible where necessary. It allows us to increase our efficiency, reduce our costs and ensure that PostBus retains its competitiveness in the future."
"In Münster, our innovative fare solutions are setting standards for all of Germany. This has only been possible thanks to an effective IT solution. IVU.suite provided us with hardware and software under one roof and allowed us to implement our ambitions in an optimal fashion."
"By introducing IVU.rail, MÁV was able to standardise and modernise their internal processes – thus making them more efficient. At the same time, the standard product’s wide range of parameters and customisability ensured that even MÁV’s complicated regulations could be well implemented."
