ITAL and AssessTech have joined forces to develop a real-time, two-way interface between Merlin and ACMS called Project ITECH.

Data integration is key for the future and helps clients manage the train service in the most efficient and effective way, helping to keep trains running on-time and improve the customer experience.

The benefits Project ITECH delivers…


Why are we doing it?

Both companies want to ensure that clients have the best tools and solutions at their disposal, and want them to work smarter, not harder. The Project ITECH interface ensures both solutions have complete and accurate information at the user’s disposal, especially when there is disruption.

For example, if there is an additional service or a train is diverted off route, Controllers need to understand what resources are available quickly and in real-time in a simple clear user interface. They need to instantly see if a driver is competent to drive the unit and has the route knowledge required. The Project ITECH interface provides everything in one place, and when a decision is made, ensures the competency record for the driver is updated – all databases synchronised in real-time.
