ALSA, one of Spain’s leading passenger transport businesses knew that if it could monitor and control the performance of its fleet more effectively, it could enhance service efficiency and customers would experience an even better service.

A close business relationship enabled Vodafone to recommend the provision of Samsung Galaxy tablets, with an integrated web application and supported by a private Access Point Name (APN) to deliver the enhanced monitoring and control the business demanded. Now constant, real time contact between ALSA and its fleet is delivering real added value.

Business need

ALSA is one of the leading passenger transport businesses in Spain with a commitment to providing services that meet the requirements of all citizens, in busy cities and rural locations alike.
