For an international transportation company, we have created a software platform, usable on the move, that allows the user to plan his or her itinerary and then proceed to the subsequent purchase of the travel tickets needed for the planned trips.
Arriva monitored the average time taken by each driver from the moment he starts work until he physically locates the vehicle, and estimated a ‘lost’ time of about 15 minutes at each vehicle change, a phenomenon related to the size of bus depots.
Hence the need to reduce the time taken to change from one vehicle to another, an objective that can only be achieved by offering drivers a simple and practical tool to quickly identify the location of the bus assigned to them on each shift.
After an initial introduction of the team to the customer, we immediately set to work to identify the most suitable tablet for the project and to align Arriva’s representatives on how to implement the App.
We identified a tablet with NFC technology as the ideal tool and, at the same time, provided constant assistance to the Arriva team to make the implementation activities as smooth as possible.
The result is a native single-platform Android App and React JS console, a technology chosen to respect the customer’s wish to implement the App on a Kiosk with Android tablet.
When the project was completed, Arriva requested Kiosk for two more depots with excellent prospects for further implementations and developments.
