Novus Data Management Service

The data created by your Novus system is utilised by a continually expanding list of downstream channels, including national journey planners and also Google. The success of transport apps, websites and passenger information portals has seen customer expectations skyrocket, increasing the importance of authorities ensuring this data is right.

However, with the seemingly endless proliferation of school terms, bank holidays and service variations, service data has never been more complicated. This complexity can sometimes be too much for authorities to manage accurately – and authorities that are able to maintain accuracy often end up spending far too long doing so.

Fortunately, there is a much better way.

The Data Management Service

Trapeze’s dedicated data experts can quickly and accurately process all of your service data – taking away a significant headache and ensuring your staff can allocate their time to valuable tasks that only they can do.

Bus service registration is undeniably complex – so Novus is by necessity a comprehensive solution with a huge amount of functionality under the hood. Fortunately, Trapeze’s data experts use Novus to support clients every single day, so they have the skills and expertise to get data right in a fraction of the time that a less familiar user would require.

Why stop managing this data

  • Authority staff with a broad remit often lack specialist product expertise

The Data Management Team currently supports a number of Trapeze customers, including Traveline Scotland, Surrey County Council, Borough of Poole Council and First Group Manchester.
