Off-the-shelf TIC from GEWI Provides Highly Configurable 511 Solutions
With worldwide experience in over 100 projects, GEWI's off-the-shelf TIC provides proven and highly configurable solutions which can be deployed faster, more affordably, and with less risk than build-your-own solutions. Data can be created by users or collected from service providers. Data can be automatically selected and personalized before being sent as information and alerts. Data can be distributed to web sites, IVR, mobile phone text, navigation devices, and even radio stations for time-scrolled announcements. Data can include speed & flow, traffic events, roadside camera images, weather, travel & tourism information, sponsorships, parking availability, fuel prices, and more. With the new TIC3 architecture, the only limitation... is your imagination! Visit to download a brochure and specific use-case leaflets, or contact to discuss your requirements.
