Wayfarer6 – setting new benchmarks
Introducing Parkeon’s Wayfarer6, the latest generation driver console setting new standards in operational performance – and user benefit – thanks to even faster on-board processing, enhanced payment functionality and more flexible systems integration.
ALBUM conference delegates will be among the first in the UK to see the advantages available to bus operators through the new smaller footprint console, which offers multi-read capability – including contactless EMV cards – along with barcode reading, 4G connectivity, location-aware SatNav/route learning, and a touchscreen option.
“The Wayfarer6 sets a new benchmark for intelligent transport solutions, delivering value-driven on-vehicle performance for bus operators in a package that is backwards compatible with the Wayfarer200 platform yet future-proofed to take advantage of emerging technologies” says Gavin Trimnell, Head of Sales and Marketing at Parkeon.
“And all supported by our unrivalled field service and UK based customer support teams.”
The Wayfarer6 supports the widest range of on-board operations ever offered, including automatic destination updating, 2-way driver messaging, Real-time Information and fleet management, along with sophisticated third party integration covering scheduling systems, vehicle telematics, voice radio systems, CCTV, Android Inspector App and passenger Wi-Fi. It utilises many of the existing Wayfarer data sets and configuration files, thereby ensuring a seamless transition to the latest technology for public transport operators.
The console also communicates with Parkeon’s newly developed TMS 2 back office solution, offering web based reporting and system configuration, with options for hosting and managing operator systems. These developments position the Wayfarer6 as the most cost effective solution available to operators of all sizes and operational requirements.
