The UIC gateway processes reservation inquiries from various transportation companies and directs these inquiries to the appropriate railway. Accounting data and statistical analyses are also processed and presented.
The gateway of the Rhätische Bahn is jointly used by the Montreux Oberland Bahn as well as the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn. Tourists and international visitors represent a major portion of the riders on these three railways. The famous Glacier Express, the scenic route between St. Moritz and Zermatt at the foot of the Matterhorn, attracts more that 1.6 million travelers each year. The new UIC gateway plays a critical role, since reservations are required on these trains.
Ergonomics implements the complete UIC gateway software solution and operates the gateway from the end of 2016 on a highly available, redundant IT infrastructure.
