Trapeze to equip Chicago transit

Posted on October 5, 2012

The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) selected Trapeze to provide a centralized system to help automate CTA''s business processes and practices for its bus, rail and maintenance operations.

The Trapeze system for CTA includes a comprehensive workforce management solution with employee self-service options to support nearly 8,000 employees across more than 18 garages, terminals and facilities. The system is extended with a centralized business intelligence tool to improve visibility and reporting across CTA's operations as well as an integrated customer complaints/comments module to help manage customer communications.

The Trapeze operations management solution (Trapeze OPS) is a unique transit software solution helping to streamline frequently performed operational tasks, including bidding, dispatching, timekeeping, workforce management and yard management. It can be further enhanced with interactive voice response (IVR) access to work assignments and Web-based access to bidding requests, work assignments, employee information and more.

The operations management solution for CTA includes functionality that enables employee sign-ups, dispatching of daily activities, timekeeping, yard management and workforce management. Looking forward, this solution can be enhanced to include software that allows operators to sign in at a kiosk or remote terminal and also securely view personal information online over the Web, including bidding requests, daily work assignments, timekeeping, and employee information.

The Trapeze operations management solution is just one component of the Trapeze transit enterprise offering. The solution is integrated with several of their existing operational systems, including their current Trapeze Enterprise Asset Management solution to help enable improved workflow with maintenance. As part of Trapeze's 360 degree vision, the solution can also be integrated with CTA's third-party payroll, human resources management systems and other applications and data sources.
