Software integration: ‘the holy grail’ for bus operators21 March 2019

Freeway Fleet Systems has announced that it can now integrate its vehicle maintenance solution with the Omnibus passenger transport software, providing bus operators with “the final missing link in the information chain”.

The integration provides bus operators with full visibility of vehicles in terms of availability, outstanding defects, recently completed work and compliance status, and is said to be the first development of this type in the UK bus sector.

Real-time, two-way data transfer between Freeway and Omnibus gives operators the ability to plan routes and assign buses with full visibility of the status of every vehicle, reducing last-minute schedule changes.

The integration also means that workshop staff can now clock in with Omnibus terminals.

Patrick Tandy, Freeway’s managing director, describes the integration of fleet and operations software as “the holy grail” for bus operators.

“No longer do operations managers need to call the workshop to find out what’s going on – everything they need to know, such as when a vehicle is booked in for a service, what defects need fixing and when, is all visible within Omnibus.”
