Since 1997, TIC has been used for a wide range of transportation solutions including Traffic and Travel Information Services, Connected Vehicles, Work Zones, Data Harmonization & Exchange, RDS-TMC and TPEG, Navigation System Testing and more. Requirements from customers worldwide are used to develop new product features to keep TIC the most flexible, feature-rich, transportation software available as a Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solution. A COTS solution means TIC can be deployed more quickly and at a lower cost than build-it-yourself solutions, but includes GEWI’s 20 years of experience solving global project requirements.
