Mobile Management Solutions

Connexionz launches latest generation of Mobile Management solutions.

Connexionz mobility management empowers supervisors and operators with their day to day field operations. Agencies often elect not to employ dedicated dispatch staff to manage agency fleet operations, as such it is often helpful to empower road supervisors and operators with a wide range of applications and hardware solutions in order not only to enable them to communicate efficiently, but also to manage service operations.

Examples of mobile services supported

  • Real time monitoring of bus operations
  • Service performance dashboard
  • View service exceptions – late, early buses
  • Control remote electronic displays
  • Send text based messages between terminals
  • Integrated voice communications capability.
