AppAlert is a completely mobile-based, real-time school bus tracking system. The company has raised $900K in its seed round of funding. 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.
AppAlert brings modern benefits of technology to schools! In a world today, where anyone can track valuable information about their shipment, purchases, bills and payments online via online tracking systems, school transportation departments can now through AppAlert’s technology prowess, deliver bus arrival information to both parents and administrators. 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.
