A state-of-the-art revenue allocation solution has been developed by Sema Group for the Association of Train Operating Companies (ATOC).

The solution, which incorporates a data warehouse, will be used by ATOCís Rail Settlement Plan (RSP) to provide train operating companies with flexible, next-day access to accurate information on earnings and revenue.

The system, called Lennon, will enable close monitoring of ticket sales and revenue data. Sema Groupís £35 million, 10-year managed service contract with RSP is based on a partnership. Sema Group and RSP are totally committed to providing a first class service and to on-going quality improvements. The company is already demonstrating the commitment of both partners through early delivery of the system. It is eight months ahead of schedule (delivery expected in July 1999) and about two months ahead of schedule for the main Lennon system (delivery anticipated in early February 2000).

Sema Groupís service will be available to train operating companiesí users over a secure intranet connection. In addition to sales and revenue information, the system will support product and service innovations for the TOCs.

RSP Chief Executive David Free said: "The benefits of the new system over the previous one (CAPRI) are numerous and will meet the needs of todayís commercialised railway. Sema Group was an obvious choice to develop the new system as it has an established record and commitment to delivering business intelligence applications to the rail industry."

David Tait, Director of Transport, Travel & Enterprise for Sema Group (UK) said: "As RSPís current rail revenue allocation service provider, Sema Group has a thorough understanding of the revenue allocation process and the business issues surrounding it. Lennon combines our innovation, experience and expertise and will undoubtedly add real value to the customer.

"Sema Group is committed to the Governmentís vision of integrated transport as outlined in the Transport White Paper and the Lennon system with its data warehouse is key to this and the modernisation of the UK transport infrastructure."

The system will contain transaction level ticket sales data and associated revenues . This detailed data will be held for 400 days and aggregated for storage over the 10 year lifetime of the contract.

Sema Groupís managed service includes access to Sema Groupís business and technical skills to support RSP with service developments and to facilitate innovation.

Sema Group won the £35 million contract in July 1998 following an open contest against a number of leading IT companies.
