"We can manage our suppliers actively, implement time-critical projects successfully and have complete transparency and consistent reporting,” - Gerhard Hudecek, Vice President Technical Operations at Kapsch TrafficCom.
Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) October 17, 2012
With completion of the Brisbane Airport Toll Road project, over 18,000 traffic lanes across 41 countries now rely on electronic toll collection solutions from Kapsch TrafficCom (Kapsch). These toll roads operate twenty four hours a day, seven days a week and support over 70 million on-board units. The complex electronic toll collection solutions must meet industry best-in-class availability standards - a daunting challenge with a global deployment and hundreds of suppliers delivering support.
Kapsch first turned to SolveDirect in 2004 to deliver an integrated toll collection system. Today, SolveDirect operates a cloud based, multisourced service integration and management solution integrating all Kapsch suppliers and delivering a seamless support experience to toll road operators.
"The integration of all service processes globally across dozens of different systems and hundreds of local suppliers on one platform enables enterprise-wide management of processes and central support and operation for all installations worldwide. We can manage our suppliers actively, implement time-critical projects successfully and have complete transparency and consistent reporting,” according to Gerhard Hudecek, Vice President Technical Operations at Kapsch TrafficCom.
The industry is rapidly moving to multisourced support services - according to Gartner, the number of suppliers IT organizations work with grew to 12 in 2010 from 3.75 in 2005. With the rapid growth of cloud services, this trend will accelerate - leaving IT organizations with the challenge of managing numerous and ever changing suppliers while retaining complete and real-time control over service execution.
“SolveDirect is the standard for service process integration, with over 220 companies connected to our cloud platform," said Martin Bittner, CEO, SolveDirect. "Partnering with Kapsch TrafficCom we’ve addressed one of the world’s most challenging service integration and management environments with requirements for complex workflow orchestration, fast supplier on-boarding and real time visibility into all supplier processes and systems. We’re excited to continue our partnership with Kapsch to set the industry standard for service integration and management."
