Zurich Transport choose IVU.crew for individual duty planning and personnel scheduling

(PresseBox) (Berlin, ) A modern standard product, already used worldwide by various large public transport companies, and which is able to take individual requirements into account - this was what the Swiss public transport organisation Verkehrsbetriebe Zürich (VBZ) wanted for their new personnel scheduling system. Individual duty planning was also particularly important for VBZ. They have now found what they were looking for with IVU.crew, the modern personnel scheduling system from IVU Traffic Technologies AG.

IVU.crew will in future combine personnel scheduling with the possibility for individual duty planning and a new appointment administration function. IVU was able to impress in particular with its automatic personnel scheduling. In Zurich they were delighted by the innovative planning options, the flexibility offered to the dispatchers, and a much simplified system for including drivers' requests when planning duty schedules. VBZ's 1300 drivers can now not only enter which duties they would prefer, but they will also receive automatic reminders about important appointments, for example tests and visits to the doctor. So that they will not have any conflicts with their work, all appointments are included directly in the system plans and sent to the driver as a PDF file. The Swiss holiday points system is also integrated directly in the personnel scheduling with IVU.crew. Each week of the year is graded according to its popularity and the holidays for each driver can be allocated on the basis of the sum of their week-points. The system is designed to make holiday planning much easier, and the calculations involved in this can now also be carried out by IVU.crew.

Via standard VDV interfaces, IVU.crew can be integrated in VBZ's existing system landscape easily and without complications. As soon as the new personnel scheduling system has demonstrated in a pilot scheme that it can meet all the specified requirements, a period of trial operations will begin. And in Summer 2011, IVU.crew will be introduced in all the VBZ public transport depots.

"The most important thing for us when choosing IVU.crew was that the new personnel scheduling can integrate special requirements such as individual appointment management and our holiday points system," explains Frau Thomet, project leader at VBZ. "It is important for us that the duty scheduling is not only made easier for the dispatchers but is also as convenient as possible for our drivers."
