NASA GmbH plans, orders, and finances regional rail passenger transport in Saxony-Anhalt on behalf of the state. The company uses IVU.control for financial controlling of the transport contracts.
Analysing and settling data
After the trip comes the evaluation and settlement phase – IVU.control records relevant target and actual data, merges it, and then prepares it for further processing. This supplies transport companies and public transport authorities with all the data they need to settle services, analyse deployment of resources, and find ways of improving their service offerings.
Punctuality probability of train arrivals, displayed in IVU.control
Numerous automatic interfaces connect IVU.control directly to relevant IVU.suite products and to other systems. This process results in every trip, every route, every vehicle movement, all deployed employees, and other pertinent information seamlessly making its way to the central database – making it easy to control important details such as punctuality, vehicle and personnel deployment, and capacity utilisation. Efficient and flexible evaluation tools deliver accurate responses to even the most complex of issues.
IVU.control compares target and actual data and analyses cancellations automatically based on causes, type of replacement service, and other criteria defined in the relevant transport contract so that services can be settled. On request, the system automatically generates statistics or reports for internal and external reporting in Excel or PDF format – complete with all graphs and formatted in accordance with individual requirements.
IVU.control also helps to calculate station and train path fees for trains and to conduct extensive quality surveys using the associated tablet app.

Case Study: IVU.suite at BKK
Heavy traffic on Budapest’s streets and ageing technology present a challenge for the city’s municipal transport authority, Budapesti Közlekedési Központ, in terms of fleet management and real-time passenger information.
