Since being founded in 1992, GEWI has paid very close attention to feedback provided by our Customers. Read about two long-time Customers who have recently extended an agreement and updated to TIC3 Software to take advantage of the many new Product Features introduced since TIC2.
Most of the current TIC Product Features can be traced back to a Customer request, market research, or an opportunity identified at one of the many conferences GEWI attends annually.
GEWI will be attending nearly 20 industry conferences worldwide in 2019, as well as conducting several Customer workshops, all with the goal of ensuring the TIC Software development plan is aligned with current Customer needs and evolving industry trends.
Recently there has been a strong interest globally in the safety benefits provided by Smart Work Zones, and GEWI has added many features to support this rapidly expanding market. Read more in this newsletter or in-person at one of our upcoming events.
If you are unable to meet GEWI at any of these events, an online demonstration and presentation may be scheduled by locating a contact in your region at www.gewi.com

The solution has also been designed to be both portable, can be used anywhere in the world – and flexible, which allows the solution to be scaled from city, county, regional, statewide, or nationwide.
And, most importantly, as a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) product, the solution can be deployed more quickly, and at a lower cost than bespoke systems.
