The company that supplies travel news information to more than 300 radio stations across the UK is to begin rolling out a new browser for use by broadcasters.
Trafficlink says the new system will replace its existing ‘Regis’ portal which stations currently use to access information about traffic and transport delays in their patch.
Regis is used by the BBC as well as commercial and community radio stations, but will be replaced by the new information browser from today. All stations should be moved across by early next year.
Trafficlink and commercial partner GTN are running a series of open days and training sessions between now and Christmas for station staff to find out more about the new system.
GTN work with Trafficlink to provide travel news information to commercial radio stations at no cost in return for advertising space alongside on-air bulletins.
Andrea Day, Communications and Training Manager at Trafficlink says: “The new information browser integrates mapping, scripting and breaking news into a product that is really easy to use. Above all it’s a powerful tool for compiling accurate, timely and useful travel bulletins for the listener.”
