Trapeze Strengthens Solution Offering in UK
December 09, 2004 - TORONTO, ON and MANCHESTER, UK
Trapeze Software UK is strengthening its Information Technology offering to local government and transport operators in the United Kingdom (UK) with the acquisition of the business and assets of Anite’s Public Sector (APS)Transport Division. The acquisition positions Trapeze to deliver a more comprehensive transportation enterprise system to support business improvements and e-government initiatives across the UK. The APS Transport Division team specializes in the supply of consultancy and software solutions to the UK Passenger Transport Industry. The team supplies software to both transport operators and public sector bodies. Customers include not only a range of private sector businesses but also five of the seven passenger transport executives and approximately 40 local authorities. The APS Transport Division software portfolio will become an integrated part of the Trapeze Enterprise offering.
“With the addition of the Anite transport solutions portfolio, we can now deliver more choice and flexibility to our customers and partners,” said Ian Keaveny, Managing Director. “The two company’s products and people greatly complement each other and will help Trapeze execute on one of its key strategies of providing end-to-end solutions for better passenger transport.” Trapeze said the combined offering will help to deliver a more comprehensive enterprise system by leveraging the product capabilities of ROUTEWISE, an integrated solution covering passenger information, school transport, GIS and social services, and TRANSCEND, a management tool enabling local government and transport operators to monitor and improve the quality of the services that they provide. Other product offerings Trapeze will add to its portfolio include TRACE, an operationalsystem for train time and delay recording, and CDMS, a system for the management of defects, warranty and components on rolling stock.
