SchlumbergerSema announced it is providing
state-of-the-art management systems for off-street parking lots serving
passengers on the new high-speed TGV-Med train service between Paris and

SNCF’s private parking subsidiary, Sceta Parc, in a competitive tender.
SchlumbergerSema has already installed its Flexio parking management

This is a high-profile project, and the ability to meet aggressive
installation timescales, a track record of successful joint projects with
