Public and Passenger Transport

Ensuring your passengers reach their destination safely and on time.

Commuters rely on on-time arrival and departure of passenger transport services. Mobile apps and internet based information gives commuters the peace of mind when planning their travel. This gives commuters the transparency to know the Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) and plan their travels accordingly. The knock on effect of this transparency is the added pressure it places on the transporter when ETA's are not met.

In the event of accidents, delays or breakdowns, transport schedulers need to have visibility of closest vehicles and the ETA of the closest vehicle to rescue stranded commuters.

In addition to this, driver management and commuter safety is key in managing risk and liability. In South Africa, Directors of Transport Companies are directly liable for the health and safety of their drivers and the commuters they transport.

Pointer provides informatics and analytics to effectively manage driver behaviour. Data analytics intelligently scores drivers and supports driver incentives and penalties for low driver scores.

Pointer is also able to integrate into legacy scheduling systems.  The setting up of alarms and check points effectively gives schedulers the peace of mind in managing any delays or changes to the schedule easily. Finding the closest vehicle takes away the stress of leaving commuters stranded for lengthy periods of time.
