WORKFORCE MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE TO SUPPORT SCHOOL TRANSPORTATION

From buses that transport grade school students to shuttles that travel from one campus to the other, driver workforce management (WFM) is critical for successful school transportation. This requires a robust communication tool that emphasizes route efficiency and safe driving. While communication is the most important component of any school transportation plan, there are tools that offer so much more. Equipped with fleet management features, GPS tracking, and DOT-compliant push-to-talk, TeamConnect serves as an all-encompassing solution for the management of your school bus drivers.

REMAIN CONNECTED AND UPDATED WITH AN ENTIRE FLEET

For the benefit of drivers, administration, and dispatch, both two-way Motorola radios and smart devices can be equipped with TeamConnect WFM software. That means your entire team can remain connected for optimal efficiency and the security of your students, no matter what device they rely on. In the event of an emergency, group communication may be utilized to keep the entire team updated. On the other hand, messages may be conveyed privately between drivers, administrators, or dispatch to keep all other lines of communication open.

GPS TRACKING FOR REAL-TIME UPDATES AND ROUTE OPTIMIZATION

GPS tracking and geofencing tags provide the opportunity to know where your drivers are at any given moment. If there is heavy traffic along one route, administration can be alerted in the immediate so they may begin rerouting others. Meanwhile, parents may be kept in-the-know about their children, helping to alleviate phone calls of concern. A daily log provides additional insight on how each route progressed and where bottlenecks have occurred, assisting in creating more efficient routes of transportation.

PUSH-TO-TALK THAT ACHIEVES DOT-COMPLIANCE

The TeamConnect push-to-talk feature promotes safety and ensures that drivers remain in accordance with federal regulations. With touch-to-talk communication, drivers can inform other buses or administrators of any challenges or updates without comprising the safety of students. Drivers are focused on the road; not on making or responding to distracting phone calls. Not only does this foster a safer experience for those in and around the bus, but it keeps your business from facing hefty distracted driving fines or legal complications.

SEAMLESS WORKFORCE MANAGEMENT FROM LEADERS IN PTT COMMUNICATION

TeamConnect is a viable solution for school transportation administrators, keeping students secure and on-time. Our workforce management app serves as a turnkey solution, offering the ability to manage routes, remain in compliance with federal regulations, and track vehicles from departure to arrival. There's no easier way to streamline your school transportation plans and keep students in the hands of safety.
