With nearly 30 years of experience, HaCon has established itself as a leading European player for planning, scheduling and information solutions. HaCon’s TPS solutions for train planning and capacity management enable network providers and operators to make the most of their infrastructure and significantly improve their work and business processes regarding operative timetable planning and real-time dispatching. TPS Online, the new member of the TPS family, has been developed specifically for ad-hoc train dispatching that controls and optimizes everyday rail operations. Short-term disruptions such as delays, broken shunting points or signaling systems can be processed in real time. TPS Online detects conflicts that have an impact on the entire railway network and offers automatic, semi-automatic, and manual conflict resolutions. As a result, dispatchers can now immediately respond to disturbances, for example by advising trains to wait for each other, by redirecting them or by scheduling a change of track.

The high quality software products and solutions prompted the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to honour HaCon as one of the “50 Smartest Companies” worldwide. Since 2017, HaCon has been a member of the Siemens family. Headquartered in Hannover, Germany, HaCon also holds offices in Berlin, Paris, New York and London.
