Tollsoft is ATPL’s signature product. The need top develop this module was felt due to the absence of any such software that could suit Indian traffic conditions.
A typical toll collection booth experiences hundreds of transaction in multiple lanes, every day. Each transaction involves the following processes:
Arrival of vehicle at the toll booth
Identification of vehicle category
Determination of amount to be collected
Collection of cash
Returning the change if any
Allowing the vehicle to pass
Once a transaction is complete, it is repeated all over again, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Moreover, at the end of the shift all these transactions need to be complied and the total cash collection needs to be handed over.
There are possibilities that in any or all of the above incidences deliberate or unintentional errors may occur. The cash is received in various denominations and therefore maintaining records is an added difficulty. We can also not ignore the possibilities of cash being pocketed or vehicles being allowed to pass without payment of the toll.
Apart from cash security, the records and reports generated by Tollsoft enable the management to analyze the traffic statistics, identify the vehicle mix and devise strategies for marketing the route.
In short, Tollsoft is a complete automated solution for toll operations which creates an environment of digital security around the point of sale and generates meaningful data for various analysis.
