AppAlert is a Cloud, Mobile only real-time school bus tracking system. A first to launch a Mobile only platform, it is changing the entire paradigm around school bus logistics in India. The single Mobile device solution, through precision map based tracking along with comprehensive roll call capabilities (RFID not required) helps parents as well as the school management know the precise location of children when they are on the school bus. AppAlert parent app is available on Android and iPhone.
AppAlert is designed to solve real world challenges that are both practical and emotional. With safety and security remaining top priorities for transportation departments in schools, AppAlert provides real time information to school authorities and parent alike, as to the whereabouts of the school bus en-route. In the event of an accident or breakdown, help can reach the school bus with immediacy.
This technology alerts parents in advance when the bus arrives at the student’s stop, so that the parent/guardian doesn’t have to stand outside in rain or sweltering heat and pollution, waiting for transportation all the while aware of their ward’s attendance on the bus. This not only gives peace of mind to parents but also to school administrators because of the number of reduced phone calls from worried parents.
