Our Solution

Passenger Complaint

When a distressed passenger initiates a call it lands at RPF Divisional control room closest to the person. A Ticket is generated after the call is attended recording the necessary details. SMS for ticket generation is sent to the complainant along with unique ticket ID. Conversation between the complainant and the Call Centre Representative is recorded and available for reference. Registered ticket is forwarded to the post personnel. If the train is running in another division or zone, ticket can be forwarded to the concerned Division directly. Post, on receiving the ticket, assigns the same to one of their field officers. Once the issue is addressed, divisional control room is informed about the action taken who will contact the passenger to confirm if his/her issue has been resolved and accordingly close or re-assign the ticket. There is a facility of conference calling that enables the call centre representative to initiate a one to one communication among the division, complainant and the post officer in-charge. SMS is sent to complainant on ticket (case) closure. In case ticket is handed over to GRP, provision is there to provide concerned contact person's details.

Integration with PRS, NTES

Integration has been provided with the Passenger Reservation System and National Train Enquiry System. In case the complainant provides details related to PNR, the system will fetch the travelling passenger details from the Passenger Reservation System. If the complainant is able to provide details related to his train number, travel date and boarding station then the onward journey of the train can be fetched using National Train Enquiry System. This will facilitate providing help at the forthcoming stations also.

Alerting RPF Escort Party

The system internally transfers the incident details to concerned RPF staff and the RPF escorting party for early resolution of the problem and has a facility to have an outgoing conference call with the complainant to help him. There is an option to listen to the call recordings at a later point of time. An SMS is also sent to the complainant at the time of ticket closure.
