Boom as basis for Hannover

With almost 170 million passengers a year and over 39 million vehicle kilometres per year (rail and bus), it is the most efficient service provider for local transport in Lower Saxony: With its city buses and light rail vehicles, ÜSTRA Hannoversche Verkehrsbetriebe AG is thus one of the top German local transport companies. Naturally, the traditional company leaves nothing to chance: Because ÜSTRA’s workshop control is based on the BOOM Maintenance Manager (BMM). Around 470 vehicles with a total of 894 stops are depicted. The BMM supports all maintenance processes from planning to operational execution.


Full availability

BOOM has also responded to special requirements: In addition to the usual comprehensive mapping of various functionalities for complete and high-quality maintenance, the BMM offers an interface to the company’s business management system. In this way, data such as vehicle designation, abbreviation, fault ID and date are transferred to the BMS within seconds in the event of a necessary inspection. Both maintenance staff and operations planners thus have full transparency and an overview of the availability of light rail vehicles.
