Danish Railways introduces digital platform for staff
Danish railway operator Danske Statsbaner (DSB) will implement a new planning digital platform. It will be used to manage the trains and train personnel. With its help, DSB will standardise its operations and make them quicker, more efficient and flexible.
The new DSB digital solution will be based on the standard product IVU.rail, being developed by the German technology company IVU Traffic Technologies. It has won the procurement process. To adapt IVU.rail to the DSB needs, the German supplier will cooperate with Netcompany, a leading Danish IT provider and integration expert. The deal also comprises licensing, implementation and maintenance of IVU.rail within the 12-year period.
“We are very proud to have been selected to assist DSB with the modernisation of its processes. Following the order from DB Long Distance at the start of the year, this decision by a further state railway is renewed confirmation for us that IVU.rail is the leading resource management system for railways and endorses our philosophy of continually enhancing the system in conjunction with our users,” said Martin Müller-Elschner, CEO of IVU Traffic Technologies.
IVU Traffic Technologies has developed a wide range of digital solutions for the rail sector. All of them (16 items) are classified under the general product name ‘IVU.rail’. Each solution has its own operational task. For instance, IVU.timetable assists the railway operators to plan their timetabling process starting from structuring the route network and creating timetables through to publishing services and supplying information to operation control and passenger information systems. The other solution is IVU.vehicle that is focused on the effective usage of rolling stock. This year IVU Traffic Technologies has managed to achieve several important results in implementing IVU.rail solutions in Switzerland.
