IMPACT™ is an integrated suite of web-applications built around
a common data and processing core. This core allows data from
numerous sources to be integrated and presented through a common
This provides a significant
step-change in the information and tools available to operational
staff tasked with planning, managing delivery and reporting performance
of rail services.
IMPACT™ is available to assist you and your staff to deliver
a better service NOW .
Flexibility & Power
The data model at the centre of IMPACT™ enables information
from numerous data sources to be presented through a single interface
and is powerful enough to allow dated versions of the network
to be maintained. At the same time it is flexible and allows
multiple bespoke views of the network to meet individual user
requirements. This means that the model can be used for monitoring
current network status and performance, analysing past performance
and events and for simulations of future timetables and network
The robust data model at the centre of IMPACT™ also allows
additional information to be added easily allowing customer specific
requirements to be added more easily us to meet customer requirements.
The network schematics are date & time versioned to allow
you to view historical performance as it occurred at the time.
This allows replay of past performance over changed network layouts.
Simialrly if you want to simulate a revised network layout,
or multiple network layouts to compare performance? Simply copy
the existing layout to a new schematic and use the network editing
tool to make the changes required. Multiple network versions
can be created for simulations quickly and easily.
If the network layout is being radically, or even being completely
re-created By using the network editor, new layouts can be created
from scratch from signalling diagrams or other design documents
quickly and easily.
All controlled schematics, are maintained by ACT Informatics free
of charge to remove concerns about the effort and
cost of maintaining network views if the network changes or
users wish to see things in a different way.
Anywhere, Anytime Availability
IMPACT™ is a web-application enabling:
- Wider access to information and functionality as tasks no
longer need to be conducted solely in the office, now you can
have the information you need where-ever you are.
- Processes to be streamlined.
- Better information provision to customers and other parties,
allowing relationships to be improved.
Information can also be downloaded to your PC to allow work
Reduced IT infrastructure and maintenance costs:
Maintenance and update of the system is easier and client hardware requirements
are minimised. Costs are reduced by lower IT infrastructure support and maintenance
requirements on end user systems and architecture.
Faster response to customers for additional requirements.
Because the software is never installed on the client machine the latest version
is always available.
Improved Data security:
Data is kept safe in a secure hosted environment. The requirement to store information
in multiple systems and move data between them is also reduced.
