SIGMA, a software solution from Connective, based in Switzerland, includes passenger count data, a planning tool and functions for importing, extrapolating, balancing and analyzing passenger numbers. A sophisticated 10-step-plausibility check ensures high quality data, rapid analysis and simple operation.

Data can be integrated in OPAL punctuality statistics and used in the SIM simulation application. Analytics tools offered within OPAL cover punctuality, connections, reporting, activity recording, management overview, rolling stock and timetable. With the help of SIM it is possible to verify a new timetable and present the effects of altered connections or construction sites.

The new desktop application analyzes general events such as partial or complete failures, journeys, cycles and arrival and departure discrepancies at stops. The software is non-proprietary.

“One of the biggest developments during the last five years, and change that has involved the taxi sector more than most, has been the emergence of ride-hailing companies. By holding the Taxi and Ride-Hailing Conference and Exhibition alongside IT-TRANS, it shows the important place taxi transportation and ride-hailing companies have in the discussion concerning the future direction of urban mobility. Held under the theme “Smart Personal Rides”, the event will be the only one of its kind to represent both the taxi and ride-hailing sectors. Working in partnership with Messe Karlsruhe, UITP will bring recognisable names to the stage as we share expertise with an international audience. I encourage everyone with a vested interest in the revolution of the taxi sector to join us in Karlsruhe next March.” Kaan Yildizgöz, Senior Director UITP & Author of the Book: Taxıs In the Era of Digitalisation.
