Rail Procurement Agency

Rail Procurement Agency Ireland

Since 2006 Dovetail has designed and implemented a number of systems for RPA.  These include:

  • Publishing live LUAS forecast information for every stop to the web
  • Publishing forecast information to Dublin City Council, on behalf of the National Transport Authority, for use in the Transport for Ireland journey planner.  This project implemented the SIRI protocol, designed for sharing information about public transport.
  • We developed the RPA website, using SharePoint.
  • Dovetail developed the official RPA iPhone and Android apps with maps, timetables and real-time LUAS Dublin tram information.

They say "Dovetail delivered a solution which not only met our requirements, but surpassed them"

Veolia Transport

Veolia Transport manages the day-to-day running of Dublin's LUAS tramveolia.gif system.  

Dovetail's Standard Fares system is used by Veolia for all its evasion management: from taking online payments, through automated advice notices, to appeals handling and summons lists.

Dovetail also provided the Veolia-managed Tax Saver System which allows companies and individuals to buy incentivised tickets while promoting the use of public transport.  This system has processed millions of Euro of tickets since it was launched in 2006.  (Click here to see the Evening Herald's coverage of the Luas Tax Saver launch.)

Dublin Bus

Dublin Bus is another customer for Dovetail's Standard Fares system.  All faredublinbus.gif evasion processed by Dublin Bus is streamlined and handled by their Customer Services department using this Dovetail solution. This system includes a full payment administration backend, managing ticket stock, payments received, advice and prosecution notices issued, appeals and summonses.

Rennicks Signs

Rennicks Signs is Ireland's premier supplier of highwayRennicks.png signage systems. Dovetail designed and build a system to centralise data from road-side smart-signs.  It allows users to login to a website and access realtime data gathered by the signs across the country.  This is a boon to    works managers, traffic planners, transport companies and local councils.

They say "What we ultimately ended up with was beyond our initial expectation. Our product is live and within budget. Our product has the “wow factor” we wanted. "

Bandwidth Communications
