Volaris Group Expands Passenger Transport Solution Offering in Europe with Trapeze Group’s Acquisition of INFO MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS AG
September 03, 2012 - TORONTO, ON
Volaris Group today announced that its Trapeze Group division has purchased INFO MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS AG (IMS) headquartered in Winterthur, Switzerland. IMS is a leading provider of IP-based operational communication systems. By acquiring IMS, Trapeze adds up-to-date communication solutions to its comprehensive portfolio for public transport.
With over 20 years experience, IMS develops powerful operations communication systems for control centers and specializes in operations communications, passenger information and emergency call systems. For public and private public transport companies, consistent and integrated communication solutions are increasingly important in order to ensure comprehensive control of their businesses. One crucial element is smooth data and voice communication between the control centre, the vehicles and stops, and the operations branches. Thanks to consistent communications, transport agencies stand to profit from greater on-time services of their vehicles. Travelers benefit from accurate transfers and real-time information before and during their trips.
The core product of IMS is PA-R-I-Ty, a trend-setting system that covers the needs of command and control centers. It can be used in large as well as small projects and allows interconnection of all the required communication media as well as safety installations. PA-R-i-Ty is already being successfully applied by many public transport agencies as an operations communication solution in conjunction with the Trapeze LIO operations control system.
