It was not easy to select the one among the three top contestants. All of them given their best.
So the winner of SAP Teched Demo Jam 2013 is “SAP HANA-based M-Tolling” .
Below is the detailed description demo jam application
On most highways toll collection is conducted directly by the infrastructure companies who build, operate and maintain roads. They typically use manual toll booths or some purpose-made device for automatic toll collection. This solution is however region-specific and lacks universal automation: the same payment device cannot be in different parts of the world. They aim at solving this problem using a smart mobile with NFC (Near Field Communication) capabilities as the universal device for passing tolls.
They aim to remove human effort and reduce TCO in the toll software and its billing and settlement process. They deploy a cloud based application that caters to more than one infrastructure company. The infrastructure company benefits a lot by placing a NFC receiver in their existing setup: they save in time, costs, billing and invoicing effort, and manual labour. Lower TCO is guaranteed. The back-end settlement process is real-time and HANA-based. Accurate billing and invoicing via payment gateways help the commuter and also the corporates. It saves time and ensures smooth traffic on highway. It solves the problem at both sides – Commuter/Customer as well as the toll company. Analytics on big data of nationwide commuters help in fine tuning public administration.
