Addressing the safety concerns of thousands of parents, one of the leading education software providers, Edsys has introduced a Real-time School Bus Tracking Software.
This software has web as well as mobile applications that help parents, teachers and school authorities to keep track of the students’ real time location, anytime from anywhere. Parents or school authorities can ask for the software from the company’s website.
A company spokesperson said that “a lot of student related incidents happens not during school hours, but either before or after that time. There are lots of things that could go wrong. Children may not get onto the right school bus, might miss the bus, or may even get down at the wrong stop. These kinds of incidents can often lead to more serious issues.” He further said “With our real-time school bus tracking software, we provide children with RFID tags along with their ID cards. These unique profiles are read by RFID reading machines placed in the doorway of all school vehicles. Once they have boarded the bus, the bus is tracked through a GPS tracking device installed in it.”
One sad incident in the Middle East reminded the importance of these systems. A 3 year old was left forgotten in a hot, baking vehicle. It happened in Ras Al Khaimah, where the temperature rose up to 43 degrees Celsius. The temperature inside the vehicle was close to 55 degrees Celsius. This incident was reported by gulfnews on 9th June.
Similar issues are faced by parents living in cold conditions as they have to keep waiting in the chilly outdoors for their children to arrive. That changes with real-time movement being available on their smart phones.
Edsys uses industry standard hardware components to ensure accuracy. Their School Bus Tracking Software is unique as both the tracker and RFID card reader are part of the same device, making installation easier.
Web and mobile applications – Edsys has a comprehensive web portal for school management called the Parent Portal (http://trackschoolbus.com/). It is linked to the GPS School Bus Tracking System, allowing parents to check their children’s real-time information from their desktop PC.
Real-time tracking – Parents get to know the location of their child in real-time allowing them to make quick decisions and plans according to safety and convenience.
Notifications –School bus arrivals are notified 10 minutes before the bus reaches the designated stop. More notifications ensue when the child boards the bus, alights the bus, if the bus stops for an unusually long period somewhere and more.
Report generation – Generate accurate details about the speed, distance, mileage, travel history, stops and more about the entire school bus fleet from the admin panel. This helps in reducing unwanted expenditure for the management apart from streamlining the whole process. It makes handling bus drivers an easier and effective job as well.
Intuitive interface – A simple menu that even the least tech-savvy person finds comfortable to use.
