Core departure scheduling data can be imported and combined from multiple sources. Most transport managers may find that they have different data sources for County, Inter-County and Localised services, or rely solely on the Traveline National Dataset. The system allows the import of each source individually or automatically; and there is no need to re-import the other sources because one has been updated.
As data is imported, or at any point after the data has been imported the transport manager can view, edit and check for departure clashes within the schedule.
When new or updated data is saved in the central database, the displays update rapidly to reflect any changes. Screens keep a copy of the future known schedule so that any loss of network communication does not disrupt the passenger experience.
Live Data Integration
Have displays update the departure times with live data from bus telematics if available.
Combine departures board with services from adjoining transport hubs such as Rail, Air and Ferry
Displays at a station can be monitored in real time, with the option to view the screen and interact with it if necessary for maintenance purposes.
Screens report their status with a "Heartbeat" monitor so you can quickly see any issues and outages and act accordingly
Restart, update and trouble shoot screens centrally.
Display Information Correction
A range of controls are included so that you can change the way imported scheduling information is displayed to the passenger. Adjustments are remembered and applied for each data import so that you don't need to configure them every time.
- Give stops and destinations more locally recognisable names, correct national spelling mistakes or make the stop description more succinct.
- Apply route or operator branding colours to make your timetables easier to understand
- Apply notes for route deviations on specific timetable departures
A powerful system is included to distribute messages to passengers at the departure Bay.
Messages can be scheduled or added ad-hoc and defined for Bays, Services, Specific Departures, the whole station or any combination of these.
Inform passengers about scheduled or unexpected delays, route changes or external conditions.
