Another e-bus builder opts for ViriCiti telematics software. This time the Dutch company announces it has signed a partnership agreement with Turkish brand Sileo. According to the deal, all Sileo vehicles distributed in Central Europe will be delivered with ViriCiti’s telematics system. This system was already integrated into the first vehicles last month.

In 2020, ViriCiti started the deployment of the world’s largest e-bus Smart Charging project (outside China) for Qbuzz Netherlands. Currently, its services are used by some of the largest operators in North America, like New York MTA, Chicago Transit Authority, LA Department of Transportation and Toronto Transit Authority. On the side of bus manufacturers, ViriCiti, which is a sponsor of the Sustainable Bus Tour 2021, has already in force partnerships with Ebusco and Gillig, among others.

ViriCiti – Sileo

Sileo’s product range covers all battery-powered vehicle types customarily used for public transport – from midi buses to articulated buses. With ViriCiti’s telematics system pre-installed in their electric buses, Sileo now offers its customers a tool to centralize their operation, increase efficiency and transparently display the range, ViriCiti says. The customers can also benefit from ViriCiti’s customer support. 

Thanks to its open architecture based on API connections, ViriCiti is able to enrich vehicle and charger data with both static data, such as route data, as well as dynamic data, coming from ITCS, CAD-AVL, Depot Management and other systems. This unlocks unique opportunities for Sileo users, ranging from Smart Charging to Smart Driving.

“Telematics solutions are becoming imperative for getting the best out of electric fleets. We’re happy to now support Sileo with our end-to-end telematics platform, that will surely help Sileo customers get new insights into their fleet and optimize their operation.” says Alexander Schabert, CCO, ViriCiti

“Together with ViriCiti, we want to take data analysis in AfterSales to a new level. Reacting earlier, predicatively perceiving anomalies in order to offer our customers optimized availability. That is our claim, which is why we are looking forward to the cooperation with ViriCiti.” comments Sven Bohnstedt, Head of Sales, Sileo
