Nilanjan Chakravortty, General Manager-Transportation & Traffic,CMS Computers Limited: CMS is one of the forerunners in the field of IT and integrated traffic technology in India. Today when there is a lot of convergence of technologies, CMS is very well positioned to offer transportation, surveillance and integrated solutions to the customer. Technology has evolved over the years. Initially we used to speak about standalone intersections, now we have networked intersections which are a part of adaptive traffic management.
The response that we got at the Show has been very good. We did meet officials from the Municipal Corporations and traffic police separately, but to have all of them under one roof was very unique. TrafficInfraTech Expo offered us a platform where we could talk about all our solutions. In fact some visitors commented that they would not have known that CMS offered this solution if they had not come to the Show. We were the only IT company at the Show which offered traffic and Internet of Things solutions.
Carles Sanz, Country Manager-India, Toll Systems & ITS, Tecsidel India Private Limited: We are participating in the show for the first time and got good response from companies involved in Toll & ITS. Even the infrastructure companies showed their interest in our products. It was a good platform to get an update on latest technology and also meet your prospective client.
Sandeep Pawar, Managing Director, Kent ITS India Pvt Ltd: We are in ITS, toll collection and Highway Management Systems. We are participating for the second time and definitely happier as the footfall has been better. A good number of government officials including those from of IHMCL visited our stall. We got the opportunity to show them our certifications, our products etc. TrafficInfraTech Expo offers us the chance to meet face-to-face with these important officials, whom we otherwise would not have had a chance to meet. We got quite a few concessionaires visiting our stall as well. We met our existing and prospective clients too at the Show with whom our negotiations are going on. The Expo acts as a follow-up activity for such clients and we can convince them better. We also had a good glimpse of what our competitors are doing. We want TraffficInfraTech Expo to highlight our ‘Make in India’ efforts for this industry.
Vengatesan N, Technical Manager – Business Development, Zilgoic Systems: We are a M to M device manufacturing company. We design and develop these devices for multiple verticals such as transport, power etc which require remote monitoring, controlling and analyzing devices. We also make connected displays such as VMS. We had good visitors to our stall and we got about 20 very good inquiries which look promising in terms of business potential. Some of them were top level government officials like the Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation, police officials etc. Our target visitors are system integrators and highway infrastructure companies who take our products and solutions and put them as a part of a whole solution for the government departments.
Mahesh Dandavate, Managing Director, Samarth Softech Solutions Pvt Ltd: We have had some good quality visitors – PWD officials and the CEO of Indian Highways Management Company Limited Anil Palekar who were interested in the traffic survey and other services that we offer. We also got to meet some good international players like Roseek who are bringing in the latest technology in the field to the country. We would like to have more infrastructure companies visiting the Show as they are our main clients. We would definitely be attending the next edition of the Show which is scheduled to be held in Mumbai in 2016.
Ankur Tandon, Manager, Bharat Electronics Limited: It was a good initiative; we could meet various technology providers and vendors. It was a good platform for this niche market.
