FMS – A Key to security in School Bus Service

 


Visitors: 23

As the improvement in technology in the field of logistics and transportation has touched the sky, one of the many sectors that has benefited is the school bus service. For parents as well as schools, security of the kids is of top most importance. Fleet management system, or more importantly the GPS feature of this system can be used proactively to ensure the safety of the children.

Student Safety:
Parents always want the best for their kids, and want their kid to be safe all the time. While selecting a school, they would definitely prefer one that offers real-time GPS location tracking of kids, while travelling in the bus. The information can also be used by school administration in several ways – for monitoring of delays, arrival and departure of bus, information on drivers, and more.

Monitoring Driving:
FMS provides relevant data of driving behavior. They keep a record and send alerts of speeding, hard braking, irresponsible driving, unwarranted stops, and detour. With the help of this data, better training modules for drivers and safety protocols for kids can be formulated. Also, as ignition status is also recorded with real time alerts, an unauthorized use of bus can be easily detected and prevented.

Bus Schedule:
The software, as a part of FMS, can send out alerts to parents about the arrival and departure of the bus. Through the help of Geo Fencing, parents will know the exact time of arrival of the bus, therefore avoiding waiting time for both – the parents as well as the bus. It may seem like a few seconds of time being saved, but when you take into consideration the number of kids, and number of school days, the amount of time saved in hours is astonishing.

Cost-effectiveness:
Most school drivers work on hourly basis. As discussed above, FMS can help in reducing the downtime, and prove to be profitable. Most FMS also generate reports on vehicle health, based on which the school bus fleet can be regularly maintained, repaired and serviced. This further reduces the chances of any huge repair costs in future. With GPS data, better routes can be planned to save on fuel-costs.
