Why Transport Management System Is Necessary?

A student's safety is the topmost priority of the school and duty towards parents. The transport management system tool helps to keep the data of each student's fee, route, personal details, attendance, and other related reports. This data can be an assuring factor for the parents and the school management to track the daily status of the student. In case of any mishap, immediate actions can be taken by the parents on the basis of the alerts they receive on their handy devices.

A School Bus Transport Management System is necessary to solely consider the safety of every individual student in the most efficient manner possible.

Keeping the record of the transport services, defining their routes, managing fees, initiating the collection of fees and scheduling is a tiresome task if done manually. All this can be made easy with the help of a transport management system.

  1. Transport Details and Reports - The tool will cater to all details of the driver, attendant, and vehicle updates in order to keep parents, management and the other stakeholders in the loop of all important information.
  2. Complete Fee Management - The Fee details, payment of the fee and the calculation of the fee can all be done through the transport management system
  3. Attendance Updates - While the kid just jumped out of the house, that is, the parent's safety, he/she lands in the safety of the school management system. The parents can make sure that the kid reached the school safely by attendance updates.
  4. Transport Alert to Parents - In case the bus changes due to faulty machinery, or it cancels due to bad weather, or the last date of the transport fee, or the kid's attendance, parents will be alerted on all such situations to act well in advance. This is done so that the kid's school life is hampered the least.
