ATOC represents the interests of all the surface rail companies in the UK and had been dealing with a number of complex issues associated with a move to integrated smart ticketing including the interface to the London Oystercard. ALCO Consulting were recruited to provide an analysis of the risks and issues and a series of advisory papers to inform strategic decisions.
ALCO Consulting provides a wide range of services all aimed at the achievement of a common end: That programs and projects are successful in achieving their target objectives, on time and within budget.
Whilst having the necessary technical competences and having “done it before”, our ability to work at the higher strategic level and report to boards and executive committees makes us ideally suited to assess and provide the guidance and oversight necessary to keep projects on track.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with ALCO Consulting on two smartcard projects. Alan Leibert and Chris Shoukry were invaluable members of both teams, particularly during the procurement, proposal evaluation, and system planning phases. I would not hesitate to recommend them to any transit organisation.
