New Application Ensures Route Coverage and Improves Driver Efficiency

IRVINE, Calif., May 01, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CalAmp (Nasdaq: CAMP), a connected intelligence company helping people and organizations improve operational performance with a data-driven solutions ecosystem, proudly announces the launch of Dispatch Monitor. This innovative application seamlessly integrates with the CalAmp K-12 suite of application solutions, fortifying CalAmp's commitment to improving school bus fleet management.

Dispatch Monitor provides school districts with a comprehensive and real-time view of route coverage, ensuring efficient operations and optimized driver performance.

Key features and benefits of Dispatch Monitor include:

  • Route Coverage Visibility: Gain immediate insight into the status of assigned routes and drivers who are actively engaged in transporting students.

  • Driver Efficiency Enhancement: Track on-time performance and identify deviations from scheduled routes, enabling proactive intervention to address potential disruptions and optimize overall efficiency.

  • Risk Mitigation: Identify at-risk routes promptly and assign coverage to ensure seamless transportation services, prioritizing student safety and punctuality.

“Dispatch Monitor is extremely helpful to identify buses that haven't started their routes,” said Melissa Posey, GPS Coordinator at Prince William County Public Schools. “With students at bus stops as early as 6 AM, in all types of weather, it’s important to make sure we have route coverage to avoid unnecessary delays.”

“CalAmp is committed to empowering school districts with innovative solutions that simplify complex fleet management tasks and prioritize student well-being,” said Joe O’Dell, Vice-President Public Sector at CalAmp. “Dispatch Monitor represents the latest advancement in our K-12 suite, designed to streamline route management, improve driver efficiency, and enhance the overall transportation experience for students and administrators alike.”
