In recent years, public transport operators have been discussing technologies, strategies and opportunities that can encourage the public’s return to rail and other shared mobility offerings.
In this perspective, improved passenger information (PIS), whether on board of vehicles, at stations or on the passenger’s smartphone, is a service that can play a significant role in enhancing the travel experience, increasing satisfaction during the journey, as well as growing the business and elevating the brand of transport operators.
Until now, managing fleets of screens, whether on- board or at station platforms, is often a source of complexity and increased effort, and hinders the consistency of information or the delivery of attractive content to passengers.
That is why PaxLife Innovations has developed a simple, efficient, future-proof and flexible solution. PaxLife’s paxCMS makes it easy to manage, update, upgrade and operate fleets of passenger screens, even if they are not consistent across manufacturers or vehicles, to gain efficiency, improve the consistency of the information provided and deliver a far more engaging experience.
Based on PaxLife’s core product, the railSTACK platform, paxCMS enables the abstraction of the actual on-board equipment via a simple interface (API), provided by PaxLife Innovations. This means that the passenger information software application no longer makes any difference between the display hardware installed on board – or even whether the passenger information is running on board a train, a bus, a tram or at a station. The major advantage is that paxCMS offers transport operators the possibility to easily manage their PISs with a single software package, regardless of the vehicle’s specifics or heterogeneity. And it also allows the content of the on-board display to be visible on the passenger’s smartphone.
