We are very excited to announce that SCS has been awarded the prestigious ‘Solar Impulse Efficient Solution’ label. Since 2010, SCS aims at reducing electronic waste by performing retrofits of public infrastructure. Instead of always purchasing an entire new system, SCS’s services allow the upgrading and integration of new functions into an existing system, such as through new software and/or specific components, whilst retaining the majority of a system’s hardware. The solution has been applied to various city infrastructure, such as ticket vending machines, customer information systems and parking guidance systems.

    Since 2012 it became apparent to public transport operators, that a concious decision is necessary between purchasing and installing a new generation of TVM (ticket vending machines) and retrofitting the current machines.  Every business case we prepared so far with a customer showed clearly: To keep the current machines, open the interfaces and source of the software (solving vendor-lock-in) with a retrofit is commercially and time wise always favorable.

    With the successful conclusion of the first retrofit projects, from POS- (point of sale), passenger information-, to many other equipment it became apparent that the full potential of retrofit has by far not reached its limit.

    In the meantime, many notable public transport operators have become customers of our retrofit solution, we are confident, that we can convince even more companies to go in this direction. For this, feasibility studies and solid cost estimation for hardware and integration into the customers systems are carried out. As soon as we are allowed to inform about the next concluded projects, we will do this here.

    Some next projects are currently in preparation and in roll-out.
