Extend the performance of your ground transportation business in the field through the deployment of scalable, secure mobile solutions that integrate seamlessly with your ground transportation system.
The built-in GPS (Global Positioning System) receiver allows dispatchers to track the location of all vehicles in the fleet in real time. Drivers receive work assignments and reservation details for passengers to their mobile device. They can accept the work with the touch of a button, sending notification back to the office dispatcher.
Credit card readers, bar code scanners, and/or portable thermal printers can also be attached to the vMDT to produce a powerful mobile computing solution. When finished with a days assignments, drivers and greeters can review and reconcile their completed work on the vMDT screen, noting additional charges (wait time, extra stops, etc.) that should be added to the trip. These reconciled reservation records are then uploaded to the office database in real time, reducing or eliminating the hours spent by accounting staff reviewing reams of submitted forms and paperwork.
Greeters and drivers can also receive reservation assignment details from the office dispatcher to their mobile device and then select from a list pre-configured responses (Received, In Route, Client On Board, Dropped Off, etc.). With the press of a button, the office is notified of their current status, resulting in a truly voiceless dispatching system.
Driver self-reconciliation is also supported giving your employees the ability to itemize all appropriate trip expenses: tolls, waiting time, service extras, fuel, gratuities, etc. The form is submitted electronically to the back office as soon as the reservation has ended. The accounting staff can now quickly scan and verify completed reservations and then process billing and invoicing in a timely manner. Driver and trip sheet reconciliation has been reduced from hours to minutes!
The portable HGTS Mobile Reservation Software Ticketing device is cellular capable, allowing for real time data uploads to the office as well as one or two way messaging. With nationwide cellular coverage, the hand carried or vehicle mounted device will allow coast-to-coast authorization of credit cards in the field. The integrated thermal printer also allows post shift cashiering reports and transaction ledgers.
This device can increase revenue and decrease your expenses (live swiping of credit card reduces fees) while improving client service levels (accurate receipts at time of service). Several hardware options exist including both wired and wireless (Bluetooth enabled) devices.
