69% of WMS software suppliers improve their sales in 2016

SoftDoit, the software comparator, has presented a study about the WMS software in which highlights that suppliers have increased their sales in comparison with the previous year.

The nº1 software comparator in Spain and Latin America SoftDoit has published the report about the Actual situation of the Warehouse Management Software (WMS).  The study has involved the participation of 42 of the most relevant WMS software suppliers of the Spanish market, Tecsidel Logistics Systems within them.

Among the main conclusions of the report, which has been presented by Lluís Soler Gomis, Founder and CEO of SoftDoit, it should be noted that 69% of the consulted companies assures that the sales of WMS software this 2016 have increased in comparison to the previous year.

Regarding the hosting model they offer, the study shows that confidence in the cloud is increasing, since more than 70% offers the possibility to host the WMS solution both in the cloud and in the own servers of the company. However, 26,8% only gives the possibility to implement it inhouse, which means that it will take time for cloud computing to adapt completely.

Furthermore, most of them agree regarding the selling method of the WMS solution: more than 95% does it through license, while 2,4% sell free software, the same percentage that commercializes the solution in freeware modality.  

The most used method to channel sales and implementations is both through channel and its own way, since more than 52% of the companies seeks both methods. Regarding the rest, about 43% does them directly, without the participation of the channel, and less than 5% is completely confident about the distribution channel for it.

Finally, in reference to the WMS future 5 years from now, most of the companies consider that cloud computing and SaaS will evolve, to achieve faster implementations. Moreover, flexibility and adaptation to the client’s needs will become more significant.

Tecsidel signs SPV Toll project for Pedemontana Veneta road

Tecsidel Toll Systems & ITS has recently signed the SPV Toll project with SIS SCpA, involving the installation of a closed, interconnected and multimodal toll system in ‘Superstrada a Pedaggio Pedemontana Veneta’.

This project consists of 124 toll lanes, a control system for 20 plazas and a complete Backoffice. SIS SCpA has chosen Tecsidel as the toll systems integrator for this complex project thanks to its 37 years of worldwide experience in Toll & ITS systems integration.

The SPV is a closed toll system with 47 entry lanes and 77 exit lanes, and 20 plazas. Once a vehicle enters the toll road, the entry is recorded and payment is calculated and collected at the point of departure, according to the total distance travelled.

The SPV is interconnected with A4 Milano - Venezia, A31 Valdastico and A27 Venezia - Belluno. This means a vehicle can enter an SPV toll and leave through an interconnected highway, even if this zone belongs to another concessionaire; and vice versa.

The Tecsidel system will allow SPV concessionaire to offer different types of payment to users, such as  Automatic Toll Payment Machines (ATPM) that accept various payment options: cash, credit card, Bancomat, FastPay, VIACARD, Telepass and MobiSis, ISO card subscribers, Calypso and Mifare Smart card, etc., electronic tolling (integrated in Telepass network) and manual tolling.

In Italy, toll collection systemshave significantly evolved in recent decades, in both their technological and functional aspect. Tecsidel has a wide experience in electronic payments and Backoffice solutions; another reason why SIS SCpA has decided to rely on Tecsidel, a foreign toll systems integrator.

Once again, Tecsidel has proven itself as a key international player in multimodal toll systems.

It is good to remember that the first highway was built in Italy, in 1924, between Milan and Varese. Now it takes part of A8 and A9 highways.

The project signing took place in Italy, at the beginning of April 2016.

Tecsidel installs the first MEP system in Rutas de Lima (Peru)

For the first time in Peru, Tecsidel has installed MEP system that allows the management of electronic payment devices (tags), associated with user accounts.

This system is designed to provide electronic payment services interoperating with different concessionaires with one device and balance. It allows to define user accounts that oneself can create and maintain, by recharging from any computer or Smartphone. The user must only enter his tag or plate number.

The system controls tags assigned to each vehicle and can share the balance between vehicles or separate them for each one, as a single customer can have different accounts that are managed in an integrated way, both from central system and user account.

The procedure is summarized in 3 steps:

1. Create an account and assigns a TAG to each customer’s vehicle

2. Recharge desired balance

3. The system records transactions, updates balances and generates transactions invoices.

It is suitable for private customers and for companies with large vehicles fleets, both pre-payment and post-payment, with the possibility of electronic or manual invoicing.

Tecsidel opens the first section of Via Alterna Sur (VAS) highway in Guatemala

The first section of Via Alterna Sur (VAS) highway in Guatemala was opened in May. The installation configured by Tecsidel involves two plazas in Idesa - Mayan and San Miguel Petapa. These plazas contain 11 mixed lanes with cash and tag payment systems in addition to an express way.

The Toll system has been installed in collaboration with TAS as local integrator, and is designed to:

• be safe and efficient

• allow maximum control of collection procedures, fraud and incidents

• operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year without interruption

The system design facilitates new technologies integration and real-time performance as well as a large number of operations with reduced operating costs.

The system is built with a pyramidal structure that integrates the following operational levels:

• Toll road: It integrates control functions of passing vehicles, toll collection, route equipment and record of anomalies generated.

• Toll plaza: It integrates acquisition functions and records the information generated by toll roads, collectors’ statements, route equipment operations, control box, operation reports and analysis of anomalies produced.

• Central system: It integrates acquisition, registration, consolidation and data processing functions of toll plazas, operations control, traffic and collection reports, fraud control, generation and exchange of information with external systems, and treatment and distribution of different types of data tables.
