Founded in 2012, Via pioneered the TransitTech category by using new technologies to power public mobility systems, optimizing networks of dynamic shuttles, buses, wheelchair accessible vehicles, school buses, and autonomous vehicles around the globe.
Via’s technology platform is currently used by more than 500 partners in 39 countries around the world– including local smart mobility projects such as, “Bubble” in Tel Aviv and TikTak in Jerusalem – to power intelligent transit systems, which help reduce private car use, decrease pollution levels and increase mobility options for disadvantaged to be there for 4 communities.
At Galil, we were privileged to assume responsibility for critical elements of the project, including: high level design, drill-down specific designs per feature, and the implementation, QA testing and subsequent deployment to live/production multi-regional systems.
The project is ongoing, creating constant new challenges as traffic and data grows. There are also requirements for new features, while working on day-to-day improvements to the system and building the next version.
The Galil team provides support to Via and its customers around the world, including on-site visits when required.

SimilarWeb looked at a number of outsourcing options, but realized that Galil Software’s Automation services solution, in terms of overhead, efficiency, and cost effectiveness, was the choice for them.
Galil Software commenced work with SimilarWeb in November 2014, and quickly expanded to a team of 8.
Initially, the Galil implemented an automation framework that has proven itself time and time again with other customers; maintenance is ensured on CI test runs, and there is an excellent coverage of tests. With a limited number of machines employed in the automation program, the overall number of test runs has been greatly reduced.
Largely due to its proven automation prowess, the Galil automation engineers are now integrated into each Development team. This ensures even greater efficiency, with the automation teams aware of what is happening in real-time with the product (they are also part of scrums and sprints), and enabling them to write tests before production.
