Bloomfield, CT – January 18, 2006 – – Prophesy Transportation Solutions, Inc. and RBS Inc proudly announce integration of the RBS GoChart 2000 dispatch system with the top selling Prophesy TrackerDispatch mobile communications solution. The powerful pairing is designed to allow growing motorcoach companies to manage their mobile assets and their driver hours in real-time, at a fraction of the cost of traditional systems.
“Prophesy and RBS have been partners for many years and due to the integration of technology from both companies, GoChart 2000 users add proven and fully operational MRM (Mobile Resource Management) and AVL (Automatic Vehicle Location) to their dispatch platform”, says Prophesy President Edward J. Forman. “The integration allows for the dispatching of charters and scheduled itineraries to drivers' mobile phones. The information is then displayed and updated by the drivers, then automatically sent back to the dispatch system (along with detailed GPS tracking information) for further processing.”
“This product information meets a critical need in our industry.” Says Bill Harnett President of RBS Inc. “It allows operators to identify potential problems and pro-actively respond to them before they become a crisis. Has the driver arrived on time to start his trip? Are they running behind in picking up the group? Have they dropped the group and are ready to do a different pickup? This is becoming increasingly critical information as more and more of our customers have remote or un-manned dispatch locations.”
About the Prophesy-RBS Integrated Solution:
Drivers enter critical information into the phone such as actual on duty arrival time at the garage, at the customer pickup location, various stops along the way, as well as the final drop off of the group and actual off duty time at the garage. This information is transmitted in real-time back to the RBS dispatch system and various “smartpoint” flags on the dispatch screen identify the status of each trip.
RBS-TrackerDispatch users may access their information via the RBS system as well as any Internet-enabled PC, via a secure website. With a simple login, real time locations of each vehicle are displayed on a route map including stops along the way. Also included is a powerful report suite that includes State summary and detail mileage reports, Stops Reports and Speed Alert Reports.
