Introducing Version 10 of BICO Distribution Services

At Stage, we are continually updating and refining our BICO, logistics system for Bike Share Scheme operators. We listen to our customers and proactively develop the platform to better meet the needs of operators. It is important that the platform continues to evolve and change as we find new ways to use data and put Artificial Intelligence (AI) to work for our customers.

We developed a new version of BICO to simplify management and improve usability for operators. Version 10 delivers improvements focused on:

  • Console usability
  • Bug fixes
  • Android app stability

With Version 10, field operatives benefit from full access to BICO distribution services with the improved Android app. The BICO RESTful API v2.0 has been re-engineered to improve communication resilience and improve efficiency across high latency mobile networks.

The new version focuses on simplifying usage for operators with enhanced map views. Users can customise their default view from any one of the available options and declutter it through a custom Google map style. The view also shows ad-hoc jobs in a different colour to improve visibility for users.

In previous versions, stations with poor usability were all under the same red icon. To improve this, in the new version, we use multiple colours to represent the status of the stations and whether it is too full or too empty.

In our growing efforts to provide additional functionality and future extendibility of the system, we have implemented the New Service Point view to replace the old Docking Station View. The new view makes it possible to filter or search service points and pull up all the information that BICO holds about that specific point which may be amended by the user.

These key changes are implemented with the user in mind and how the system can deliver enhanced usability and a customised view to each individual user. Field operators gain better visibility of the entire Bike Share Scheme and makes managing this process simple with clear map views and warning indications. Simple management is the key to success and growth of Bike Share Schemes.

At Stage, we are always looking to use the latest technology to provide the best possible solutions in logistics in cycle sharing programs. This version update builds on our dedication to improve our services that impact both our customers and their end users.
