Solution for asset managers
Government transport agencies worldwide must manage and maintain many type of intelligent transport system (ITS) assets and keep road users informed about the impact on traffic and travel.

Examples of ITS related assets include cameras, traffic lights, ramp meters, VMS signs, road sensors, and weather stations.

Agencies spend a lot of effort maintaining and repairing ITS assets which can be difficult when asset and project information is kept in several different places.

TIC can help reduce effort, time, and frustration when managing ITS assets by consistently managing assets all in one system. TIC then helps to accurately inform road users with regular updates.

Reduce asset maintenance and repair traffic impact
TIC can be used to identify if a small job might have a bigger traffic and safety impact. Traffic control permits can be viewed to see if other agencies are working in the same area. Project information about jobs can also be sent to other agencies.

TIC can optionally collect traffic information from other systems so operators can either plan to avoid a time, or during a job view the actual traffic impact of a job.

Save effort in combined asset management project
Asset maintenance and repair projects managed on TIC can combine multiple steps, from detecting problems, informing the public, deploying resources coordinated with multiple agencies, confirming completion, and informing the public when done.

Steps can be customized, for example to check the weather forecast the day before the job begins, and to check actual weather and any incidents on the day of the job.

Inform travelers when assets not operational
TIC can be used to create traffic and travel event information when ITS assets are temporarily not operational, such as during asset maintenance and repair.

All in one system
​TIC can support and harmonize many types of ITS asset information all on the same system, even data from other systems using different referencing methods.

For example, TIC can be used to collect information from other agencies responsible for different road classes, and create harmonized data which can then be viewed and shared.

Custom predefined process steps
Typical project management action plan steps include: monitor, detect, verify, inform, respond, and clear an incident.

Customers can customize their existing processes and can analyze how a project was run to make process improvements with improved custom steps.

Intuitive and fast data entry
TIC operators are provided with a consistent and intuitive user interface to quickly create, update, check, and improve information, regardless of the data type, helping to shorten the time to learn and to reduce data entry errors.

TIC operators can easily understand data by viewing information in one or more windows types such as lists and charts, and geographically using intuitive maps with selectable layers.
Accurate data entry
TIC operators can be prompted to review the data they entered by TIC checking data accuracy, such as missing information, acceptable values, and data formats.

Reduce data entry
TIC saves operators time and effort by ​reusing data already stored on the system.

For example, names of selected roads and other location details are automatically reused.

Work productively with proven product
TIC is a proven product used in many different solutions by hundreds of operators worldwide helping them to work rapidly while supporting information accuracy and quality.

Manage different ITS asset types
TIC can be used to manage different assets such as cameras, traffic lights, ramp meters, VMS signs, road sensors, and weather stations.

Import and reuse existing data
During system implementation, TIC can import existing data, helping to save time by reusing data and avoiding to manually re-create data.

Start resolving problems quickly
TIC can be used to monitor device status data and when an abnormal situation is detected, TIC can automatically create a project used to start resolving problems.

Easily share and exchange information
Data can be shared and exchanged with other systems, for example using the documented TIC XML format, or converted for use with other standard and custom formats.

Work everywhere
TIC can be conveniently used everywhere, such as operations center computers, at remote locations using an internet browser, and even while mobile on the road.​

Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) product
TIC is a COTS product which provides higher reliability at lower total cost and risk over several years when compared to build-your-own solutions or clones (one-time copies of other systems).

A TIC system is implemented simply by configuring the TIC product to meet a customer's requirements.

Solutions for real customer needs
GEWI solutions are based on customer requests received worldwide across a wide variety of organizations.

Each request is analyzed and processed, and could lead to a change in the TIC product, system configuration, services provided, or sales agreements.

Customers systems can include the standard TIC user feedback feature used to create accurate and detailed requests, for example automatic screenshots ready to be analyzed.
