Developing an open and readily usable Optimodality Framework aimed at integrating processes, data, and systems in a manner that eliminates interoperability barriers to the marketplace emergence of truly Optimodal travel services: from planning through booking and the full range of related travel support solutions;
Delivering Optimodality Ecosystem Enablers, offering an open infrastructure that allows organisations to set up cost-effective integration of existing systems and to create value added multimodal travel services;
Organising and developing a Living Lab to experiment and evaluate new concepts and prototype solutions in real life multimodal travel scenarios and obtain data to quantify impact;
Taking actions towards sustainable development including a Stakeholder Engagement Strategy and wide dissemination.
In EUTRAVEL, eBOS Technologies implemented an advanced Travel Planner solution that combines different travel modes including, but not limited to ferry, train and bus. The solution provides multi-device and multi-browser compatibility and enables travellers to plan a door-to-door trip based on a user profile. In the course of the project, eBOS acquired specific knowledge related to the implementation of responsive web-solutions. This new expertise was leveraged for the implementation of new functionalities of the eBOS ERP Software Suite, as well as for the design and implementation of custom web-based solutions for eBOS Clients.
