Reliable in decision making

TRANSPAIS over the last few years has implemented a variety of technological solutions in its bus fleet, which are aimed at providing information to different areas of the company to make the operation more efficient, which is received at its monitoring center specialized.

These solutions are integrated into a telemetry platform that concentrates the data and shows diversity of information through different independent modules, which offer the visualization of results in a detailed way.

Given the constant search for improvement to offer a better service to customers, and make operational decisions in a faster and more informed way, TRANSPAIS asks us for a comprehensive development proposal to visualize all the operational information in a simple way and at a single view, this through boards showing different indicators and reflecting the status of the operation in real time.

All the information of the different solutions was concentrated in different databases, this implied making various optimizations in the way of consulting the information and displaying it at a single view, regardless of where the information was housed.

“A friendly interface was needed, which will integrate hundreds of thousands of data continuously”

A detailed analysis of the different solutions was carried out, and the number of boards to be developed and how they could be integrated to provide results according to the different areas of the business were determined.

Different computer services had to be created to exchange data between applications and concentrate the results, thus displaying information in a fast, dynamic and real-time way, to keep the indicators on the different boards updated.

Given this need, didcom involved 2 development areas, which were responsible for designing the architecture and functionality of each of the operating boards.

1. Systems Analysis and Technical Support
2. Software Design and Analysis Specialist

This project definitely represented a great challenge, since its main objective was to select, process and integrate hundreds of thousands of data continuously to present results that will show the status of the operation, and mainly detect incidents that will affect customer service.

The solution

Seven comprehensive operating dashboards were developed, which are accessible through the telemetry platform, each interpreting the information for a specific purpose and at the same time intercommunicating with each other to interpret the data from a different perspective, creating a multifunctional intelligent system and multipurpose, intuitive for the user and with the ability to be programmable and scalable to the needs of TRANSPAIS.

Results that transcend

With the implementation of this project it is possible to cover several points, the main one being to have a clear vision of the operation in a visual, simple and efficient way, detecting incidents and opportunities.

The reaction and response time to an eventuality or consultation has also been considerably improved, improving decision making and increasing the effectiveness of the operation by printing dynamism, flexibility and speed of information.

Undoubtedly, this implementation has generated a series of benefits on a large scale and for different levels of the organization, both for the operational and managerial areas, as well as for the management, which directly impact on the improvement of the business and customer service.
