GEWI Expands Authorized Partner Program

Since 1992, GEWI has been a global leader in technology related to traffic and travel information.  GEWI’s TIC product has developed a reputation as the world leader in commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software for the management of traffic related data.   GEWI has designed TIC to be used for a solution meeting the requirements of a wide range of public and private organization customers.  These customers include; DOTs and ministries of transport, broadcasters, automobile and device manufacturers, service providers and road operators. 

To enable GEWI to service these diverse markets, the GEWI Authorized Partner Program (GAP) was established.  An Authorized Partner uses GEWI products to enhance their own solutions and sell TIC as a component of their value-added solution.  GEWI authorized partners include system integrators, service providers, and consulting firms.

Currently GEWI has agreements with a number of Authorized Partners worldwide.  If your organization is interested in participation as an Authorized Partner or would like more information, contact
