Over 500 participants exchange views on opportunities and developments in public transport

Berlin, 13 March 2017 – Digitalisation is moving the transport sector. Its effects were also the main topic of conversation at this year’s User Forum of IVU Traffic Technologies AG. On 9 and 10 March 2017, representatives of transport operators from all over the world met in Berlin for the 29th time to discuss the current trends in the industry and learn about their colleagues’ experiences.

With more than 500 participants from 17 countries, the industry event organised by IVU set a new attendance record. This year, Dr Frank Scholz, CIO of DB Regio AG, took on the role of keynote speaker and welcomed the guests to the Estrel Convention Center in Berlin. In his presentation, he emphasised the importance of IT departments for the development of new business models. Using the example of DB Regio, he showed how integrated digital systems help to effectively streamline operational processes. His insights into his own experiences at served as the prelude to two days of discussions and animated conversations.

The jam-packed presentation schedule provided the participants with numerous opportunities to get an idea of the status of the digitalisation of public transport in Germany and all over the world. The topics ranged from integrated resource planning, the possibilities for optimisation, and passenger information all the way to e-ticketing and modern check-in/be-out solutions. The reports given by international speakers from New Zealand, Sweden, Belgium and Switzerland on their experiences, which opened the participants’ eyes to the challenges other countries are facing, were in particularly high demand.

The IVU engineers presented the most recent developments of the IVU products at the accompanying exhibition. The IVU.pad, which improves communication with the mobile personnel and integrates it in the digital operational workflow, was a highlight this year once again. Expert workshops and discussions in user groups further enabled the participants to exchange ideas in small groups and find out about individual aspects of the IVU systems in more detail.

“We are delighted to see that our user forum enjoys such great popularity in the industry. The many discussions showed that the participants gladly accept our offer to enter into an open exchange,” said Martin Müller-Elschner, CEO of IVU Traffic Technologies AG. “With more than 40 years of experience, IVU is a pioneer in the field of digitalisation. Our guests and customers appreciate our expertise, which is underlined most impressively by the number of visitors, which increases every year.”

IVU Traffic Technologies AG has been working for over 40 years with more than 400 engineers to ensure punctual and reliable transport in the world’s metropolises. In growing cities, people and vehicles are constantly on the move – a logistical challenge that calls for intelligent and secure software systems. The integrated standard products of the IVU.suite work to plan, optimise and control the deployment of buses and trains, provide passengers with real-time information, create routes for parcel delivery services, and support businesses in choosing branch locations.
