Central Management System (CMS)


Back-office simplicity – modern & powerful

The TWM Central Management System (CMS) is a cloud-based control system which presents key performance data in a user-friendly format. It has been designed to be a scalable solution, to grow with the user and always with security of data in mind.

The TWM CMS enables remote and real-time monitoring and control of all end devices and, encompassing modern approaches to software development and toolsets, allows the user to easily retrieve data from the technology on their network.

Designed to control VMS signage, Mini Matrix™, ANPR, and adaptive speed control signage, it is suited for geographically distanced and localised installations. Each system can be stipulated by the client.

Following the Internet of things (IoT) advanced system architecture, the TWM CMS can communicate across a wide variety of channels including Wifi™, Mesh Wifi™, 4G/5G and ethernet.

Technology connected to the TWM CMS can be displayed on a geographical map and access to each device can be gained by clicking on it (or by searching for the device name or serial number).

With our Mini Matrix™ range of signage, for example, you can view data (speed, traffic etc.), set up the sign calendar, carry out basic configuration, set the current aspect (message) you wish to display, and also check the device state, battery voltage, and other hardware elements.

Data can be presented in easy-to-understand graphs that can be exported and shared more widely.

With different user access levels, information and actions can be restricted by system administrators. With full logging capabilities, the TWM CMS provides comprehensive fault reporting capabilities.

The TWM CMS is capable of controlling both new and legacy sign types, thanks to the TWM Translation Engine, this is an integral part of both systems allowing them to communicate using state of the art IoT and legacy UTMC protocols.

The Translation Engine is designed in such a way as to be easily customisable for client specific protocols.
