The Dispatch Dashboard is TransTraks’ Information Central. It provides your dispatchers
and other staff with important information about the day’s activities, including
field and athletic trips, absent employees, busses that are out of service, etc.
It also provides staff with important information to handle the daily volume of radio
and telephone calls that come into Dispatch. For example, a bus driver calls in and
reports that a curb-to-curb special needs child’s parent is not there at her bus
stop. Calling up the Dispatch Log, the Dispatcher can easily record this fact and
at the same time bring up the child’s contact information to try and call the parents.
The dashboard also includes Dispatch Reminders about early outs, special activities,
etc. If you are using our Bio-Metric Timekeeping system, Dispatch and managers can
even leave messages for a driver or group of drivers and it will print out for them
when they clock in or out.
The Dispatch Log allows you to capture all important activity for a day. Many of
the fields are entered automatically or allow for a drop down list of quick comments
and subjects. It only takes a few seconds to capture important information. History
can then be printed out in reports or looked up using the search fields at the top
of the form.
