The Issuing System enables a third party to offer toll services to road users by selling tags.

The Acquiring System enables them to pay ETC tolls for drivers and to settle the charges via contracts with the road concessionaire or central clearinghouse. It interfaces with the operational back office (OBO) across all toll domains to submit customer and tag information, and retrieve trip/transaction data to be billed to the customer.

ViaPlus accounts receivable processes and accounting are in full compliance with India’s rigorous financial governance requirements.

Maximize Revenue Capture

Sightline™ Image Review

High-resolution images and Automatic Image Processing support the nearly full automation of a video toll system, but scenarios remain where human observation and Manual Image Review is required to guarantee the highest accuracy. ViaPlus provides both automatic and manual image processing and can easily interface with existing back office or host systems. Together, these modules create the best results for posting data transactions, and enable toll road agencies to boost their revenue collection by preventing leakage.

The ViaPlus image review service integrates diverse business rules in the workflows for quality assurance, and can also work with agencies for customer dispute reprocessing.

Automated License Plate Recognition (ALPR)
  • Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software and machine learning algorithms automatically analyze images or videos captured by traffic cameras.
  • Captured images are pre-processed to enhance clarity by adjusting contrast, size, font, and recognition of plate syntaxis.
  • Identified license plates are post-processed with quality metrics to refine results and improve accuracy.
  • Final automated verification occurs when all of metrics have been met, otherwise the transaction is subject to manual review processing.
Manual Image Review (MIR)
  • Experienced and trained staff who know the region’s license plates, traffic patterns, camera lane issues, and can even recognize habitual violators.   
  • Efficient workflow. MIR queues are designed with minimal keystrokes and user-friendly screens.
  • Configurable agency business rules determine options of single review, double-blind review, code off reviews, supervisor/escalation queues, extensive audit processing, and customer dispute reprocessing.
  • ViaPlus Manual Image Review services generate reliable data for identifying the Registered Owner of the Vehicle (ROV).   
  • Web-Based Access Image Review Application is customizable and available 24/7/365
