  • There is no ability to track and detail individual asset performance holistically

SIRI Protocol in Toustone's Transport Solution

Benefits to Australian transport operators

  • It is a globally recognised standard for transmitting messages from all transport operators (think trains, buses, ferries etc. Regardless of the transport type, the SIRI protocol can be used).
  • The SIRI protocol is already being used as the protocol of choice in parts of Australia. For example the NSW Government has adopted the SIRI standard.
  • SIRI is all about communicating to the customer in a superior and accurate way. Accuracy of data resonates strongly with our values.
  • SIRI helps the transport industry move away from “now” “now” and instead move towards “when exactly is the next train arriving”

Automated operational reporting

Our client is a large train operator currently operating and maintaining a line in Sydney, which contains 36km of track, 13 stations and delivering 346 daily services. Toustone enabled them to accurately track every journey with one dashboard that captures all train, station, and patronage data in one location. By unifying all their data sources they can now drill down from the big picture into individual train journeys to target specific performance issues.

“Toustone has been able to provide far more accurate detail than any other service we have worked with previously. We have gone from absolutely nothing and bad Excel reporting to actual live data feeds inside a year… it’s amazing.”
