Chemnitzer Verkehrs-AG orders stationary ticket vending machines from krauth technology


In a Europe-wide award procedure, Chemnitzer Verkehrs-AG (CVAG) together with the Transport Association for Central Saxony (Verkehrsverbund Mittelsachsen GmbH) (VMS) invited for tenders for the supply and installation of 25 stationary ticket vending machines (sTVM) for the CVAG and three stationary ticket vending machines for the VMS. We are very pleased that the contract was placed with krauth technology GmbH. With these TVMs, CVAG intends to rigorously renew quality standards in this sales channel. This new quality level will be achieved by the following key features: low susceptibility to failure, modern design, high user comfort, easy and intuitively understandable operability, sustainability, good migration capability and investment protection for the duration of the vending machine’s lifetime and the use of proven, but at the same time modern and future-oriented technologies. High priority is given to the implementation of solutions tailored to the needs of persons with disabilities. In this context, a solution providing a grip bar at the vending machine was conceived for example. During the selling process, enhanced and improved possibilities for dialog control are implemented in order to facilitate the customer’s ticket choice. Tickets may be chosen according to the requested destination and the fare zone will be automatically determined.

Mr Kroll from the CVAG project team is looking forward to receiving the new systems: “With krauth technology, we are having a competent and reliable partner on our side. With them, we trust to be able to solve and implement all pending production steps in correspondence with the tight time schedule and finish with proper commissioning. Not least, our positive opinion on krauth technology results from past experience with krauth sales technology and the recent staff reinforcement in the sales, development and project management divisions.”
Klaus Liedloff from the krauth sales team shows himself excited about his great next order for vendingmachines: „In December already, the machines will be activated. We can achieve this with sprint-development and the ability to manufacture the largest proportion of components directly in our works in Germany”.
Krauth technology is looking forward to continuing their cooperation with CVAG. Very soon, not only the on-board computers from krauth technology, but also the vending machines from krauth technology will be operated. The system administration will then be realized with a (then standardized) krauth SMART-BackOffice solution.
