Manchester Central Convention Centre, 17-18th May 2017 – CoachHire.com have been introducing hundreds of Independent schools to a safer, more convenient way of transferring students between school and home via new technologies at the Independent Schools’ Bursars Association Annual Conference in Manchester.

“The interest over the two days has been overwhelming”, says Managing Director, Mathew Hassell. “We always knew that safeguarding children on the school bus could be vastly improved with the application of technology, but it is great to see such interest from the schools themselves. The school bus sector has changed little over the past few decades and it’s clear that staff and parents are keen for it to catch up with the rest of school life.”

CoachHire.com’s headline announcement surrounds the SchoolSafe suite of apps that can be installed on existing school routes or as part of their managed solutions, allowing parents and school staff to track their buses along the routes, announcing delays and providing secure notifications via smartphone app when a child boards or does not board the service when expected.

CoachHire.com’s managed solution also offers additional cover from morning and evening support teams, interactive timetables for students and a dedicated school transport phone line, providing one point of contact for the school and parents for every route. By outsourcing their service to the CoachHire.com teams, school staff can improve the efficiency and reliability of their transport whilst reducing time spent managing the service.

CoachHire.com have spent the last six months proving the concept with services already underway for schools in the South East and they are looking to roll their applications out to more schools in time for the start of the next school year in September.
