The contract was concluded for a period of 5 years with the possibility of extension. The agreement covers the rental, maintenance and support of IRPOVS software and hardware, as well as customization, integration, installation and training services.

“This system is one of the company’s most important digitalization projects. We will transfer a significant part of our day-to-day work to it: planning routes and train schedules, assigning trains, creating work schedules for service personnel. What had to be done manually in a few days will be completed in a matter of minutes, ” says Linas Baužis, CEO of LTG Link.

In addition, it is noted that the system will help to respond to schedule changes in emergency situations more quickly.
