The sister portable VMS companies Bartco and MVIS have developed a new way for traffic managers to control their variable message signs with greater flexibility and speed.
The new app BartcoLiveTM enables users of Bartco UK VMS to create new messages remotely via Apple and Android smartphones or tablets, as well as via the conventional means of laptop, accessing the chief sign-management operating platform, Web StudioTM.
Created in Australia by sister company Bartco Traffic Equipment Pty, the companies say BartcoLiveTM was developed in order to “further improve the efficiency of the VMS ITS solutions” for Apple and Android users provided by Bartco UK and MVIS.
In addition to message creation, BartcoLiveTM offers secure login, a searchable list of assets, details regarding the status of each as well as its location on the map and directions and a list and search facility for files.
Bartco Traffic Equipment Pty’s R&D project manager and chief developer of the app, Dolly Shah said, “Bartco’s international in-house R&D team is focused on developing ITS solutions to meet recognised customer need. BartcoLiveTM enables our customers to control their VMS with increased flexibility and speed, allowing them to manage their ITS solutions with greater efficiency.”
