TCS and Gfi Informatique to Work on Belfort Infrastructure

TCS and Gfi Informatique to Work on Belfort Infrastructure

Information and technology provider Tata Consultancy Services (known as TCS) is teaming up with Gfi Informatique to prepare a city in the Burgundy region of France known as Belfort for its new bus and coach transport network.

The work conducted between TCS and Gfi Informatique is the latest change that they are to make to the French city in their bid to make it what is known as a “smart city.” The hope is that once this has been made the people of the town and surrounding areas will be able to benefit from the wide range of digital innovations that TCS and Gfi will have put in place, thus improving the transport networks and the modernization of Belfort as the perfect example of towns and cities’ adaptations to the digital world. Aided by Belfort’s Board of Public Transportation, the two companies will ensure that it implements the necessary and appropriate new digital technology to make sure that transport network providers are furnished with the right amounts of data that they require to operate in an organized and efficient fashion.

Holding more than 50,000 citizens, Belfort will witness the two companies’ devotion to try and improve the city’s rapport with technology. The planning for this zealously ambitious project was approved via the acquisition of vast amounts of collated data which analyzed the bus network services of the city. After feeding this information, along with information collected by Gfi Informatique, into Tata’s Intelligent Urban Exchange online tool package, a Proof of Concept was then established to determine the various ways in which the bus and coach transport services could be improved through the use of digital technology. By using this tool, Belfort’s Board of Public Transportation was able to assess what measures it would need to take in order to advance the city’s major transport services into the digitized 21st Century.
