Soléa has been providing public transport services in the Mulhouse region for over 130 years.
The Soléa transport network includes buses, trams, tram-trains, electric shuttle buses and transport on demand.
Soléa has 621 employees in various hubs, including nearly 400 drivers.
The network serves 39 communes covering an area of 346 km² for the region’s 275,000 inhabitants.
Soléa wanted to further develop its internal communication for employees who are constantly present in the company, but also for mobile drivers who can’t aways be informed in real time of new information about the company, organisational changes, or internal events. In addition to traditional internal communication and the distribution of information, the major appeal of digital signage for Soléa was being able to distribute information about drivers’ routes, by sharing weather conditions, any road works and diversions, and new routes.
The benefits of digital signage for communities
Soléa deployed the technology twofold, choosing Neoscreen content creation and distribution software for its speed and ease of use.
Soléa first chose to install five digital display screens, to share practical information with internal employees. In addition, four interactive terminals on tables were installed, specifically for drivers on their shifts. Drivers have access to networked printers on these terminals, which allow them to clock in and out and access information about their working hours and the lines that concern them. Five other terminals on stands are available to all staff for consulting documents and internal communication media.
This digitised information replaces the paper displays, speeding up updates.
