Business Analyse für neues Vertriebssystem ZPS

Mit dem Programm «Zukünftiges Preissystem öV Schweiz» (ZPS) wurde das neue technologische Fundament für die zukünftige Vertriebslandschaft geschaffen.

ZPS verfolgte dazu die folgenden drei Zielsetzungen:

Ablösung und Erneuerung der aus heutiger Sicht veralteten Verkaufssysteme aus den 90er Jahren.
Die aus Kundensicht nahtlose Verknüpfung der Fahrausweise von Direktem Verkehr und Tarifverbünden
Ermöglichung einer Preisdifferenzierung nach Strecken im Normaltarif zur marktverträglichen Verbesserung der Nutzerfinanzierung.

Die neuen Systeme, die sogenannte öV-Plattform, sollen von allen Transportunternehmen und den Tarifverbünden genutzt werden. Dadurch entstehen Einsparungen und vorhandenes Synergiepotential kann besser genutzt werden.

Mit Datenbanken, die von allen Transportunternehmen mit der neuen öV-Schnittstelle genutzt werden können, wird es möglich sein, den Kundinnen und Kunden überall
einheitliche Serviceleistungen anzubieten. Die grösste Herausforderung war die Integration der neuen öV-Plattform in die bestehende Systemarchitektur der TU und Tarifverbünde, in der Novotec ebenfalls mitwirkte.
