Connected Work Zone and Apple Watch Topics at GEWI Workshop

GEWI kicked off 2016 with their annual business workshop, held in Bavaria 18-21 January 2016, with team members from Product Development, Customer Projects, IT, Sales and Marketing in attendance.

The goal of the annual event is to align all teams with GEWI’s business and product goals for 2016, to discuss new ideas about markets, sales, and customer projects, and overall to share information which will result in improved TIC Software product features and solutions for GEWI’s customers.

Session highlights included lively discussion on elements of the Connected Work Zone, including current TIC features related to potholes, cameras, smart cones and mobile devices, such as the Apple Watch. Discussions about the integration of more traffic and travel data sources included connected vehicles, social media, and even drones!

In 2015 GEWI introduced the “Project” feature which is central to the Road Incident Management market. A full day was spent on how to improve the TIC Smart Client graphical User Interface (UI) to allow customers to more quickly and easily create custom their own Incident Response Plans using TIC’s Business Processes. This allows customers to further customize their TIC systems, on-the-fly, to add new response plans and continually improve existing plans.

The teams also enjoyed several authentic Bavarian social events which provided an informal setting for interaction between all team members. By all accounts, this was the most enjoyable and productive workshop in GEWI’s 24 year history and the bar has definitely been raised as the agenda is already being discussed for GEWI’s 25th anniversary workshop in 2017.
