Bus 993 integrated module has an application called Driver's app which is one out of the four applications. This app is synced with the parent's app and it is customized especially for drivers to stay connected to the students and their parents. It has several features which can help bus drivers complete their responsibilities.
Drivers can focus on driving and this app will do the rest of the job. It provides several add-on features to drivers that make this app the best companion while working. So let us take a look at its features and benefits:
1) Select Route - Bus drivers can choose the route of the pick-up or drop of the school students and get the right route to their location. You will get the list of routes available and you can select the most appropriate route. The route that you select will be notified to the parents of the kids.
2) List of Students - This app will display the list of students present each day on the bus along with their location. With this feature, you can choose the route of the pick-up or drop. It also provides the directions to each stop as per the route selected. It ensures that you don't miss any kid's pick-up or drop.
3) Mark Attendance - Every driver has to mark the attendance of each student by clicking on the student's image. This is a compulsory step and every driver must mark attendance after the kid boards the bus. Once the kid is inside the bus and the driver marks his/her attendance, the parents get notified about it. Keep a record of the students who board the bus every day.
4) Calling Option - Drivers can call the parents or guardian of the kid directly from this app if he wishes to speak to them for any reason. He doesn't have to search or dial the number of the kid's parent manually because with our app they can simply click on the calling option to connect with the parents. Even if the driver doesn't have the parent's phone number then he can find it in this app. No need to contact the school for the parent's phone number or contact details.
5) Save Time - Just in case, if a kid is not going to attend the school or board the bus then the driver will get notified about this change and he can change his route accordingly. Skip the locations where students will be absent and directly pick the students who are going to be present that day. Parents mark the attendance every day which is updated on the driver's app. It saves the driver's time and fuel.
6) Parent's Profile - View the entire profile of every parent in this app to avoid miscommunication or misunderstanding. The profile contains the name of the student, address, phone number, parent's name, etc. The app will show you the pictures of the students as well.
7) SOS Alert - Through this SOS alert feature, the driver can send alerts to the parents of a particular kid, school, and the police too. This feature sends a warning or alert message to all of them to inform them about any mishappening or problem. Each one of them is notified so that suitable action can be taken quickly.
This application is the perfect app for bus drivers as it makes their job easier. It also adds credibility to the driver's profile. It has an inbuilt GPS system which also helps the driver to locate the route and get the direction of the selected route every day at no additional costs.
