We have spent the best part of the last year developing our travel information system, codenamed Daisy.
Using our skills from agricultural engineering we have followed our goals to create an simplistic, robust and affective travel information portal which is accesible from any internet connected device.
Unlike other developers we don't believe in "apps" for every smartphone or system out there, but in offering a standards compliant web service that is open to all. Not only does this bring cost savings to our clients, but allows for us to offer a consistent journey for the user wether they be at their desktop or on the move on their mobile.
We are pleased to announce that our first client who has been instrumental in assisting the development of Daisy was Kent County Council, their implementation can be found at www.kenttraffic.info. This is a standard Daisy implementation encompassed by the Kent County Council corporate style.
Daisy utilises our own bespoke software along with some opensource components to deliver what we believe to be one of the most affective and unique travel information platforms available. If you require any further information please contact us.
We recently launched Buttercup as a Network Management reporting tool. For the first time, network operators are able to view their incident data as a daily report, with all the latest information a button press away. Our agricultural roots gave us the drive to bring disperate data together in an affective means. Using spatial technologies we can highlight incident's of significant interest such as those on key routes, or of impact to schemes such as lane rental, where such data can be used to recover an element of the cost for managing the road network.
We have big plans for Buttercup, and we have a roadmap to develop Buttercup into a UTMC compatible Incident Management system. We intentionally built Buttercup backwards as by starting with the reports and understanding the data and process required to manage the road network, uniquely places us to provide our customers with an incident management tool that fully meets their needs.
Building detailed knowledge of the road network into Buttercup helps operators make accurate and timely decisions by providing indicators of route importance, highlighting potential diversions and tools to assist in the managing of the incident in hand. We plan to deliver this vision in 2014 so please check back soon or contact us for more information.
