CoachHire.com showcase home to school technology with live demos at the London BETT show

Jan 24th – 27th 2018 – Excel, London: Over the four-day show CoachHire.com will be exhibiting on stand E351, demonstrating their cutting-edge suite of apps for drivers, parents & school staff to safeguard pupils on their way to and from school. Their attendance at the show is part of their strategy to roll out the technology with almost 100 school partners before the end of the year.

The company has been developing its solutions over the past year, boosted by a multi-million-pound investment deal with Souter Investments, the family investment office of Stagecoach co-founder and Chairman Sir Brian Souter.

The tracking technology allows CoachHire.com’s controllers to monitor the progress of each school coach along its route as well as providing them with live traffic overlays. On their fully managed routes the controllers liaise with drivers and school and operate a helpline for parents and pupils using the service.

The tracking system is integrated with the SchoolSafe parent app available on iOS and Android, allowing parents to track the vehicle themselves and providing instant “push” notifications to their smartphones if the service is delayed.

The combination of tracking and communications technology are already driving improvements in reliability, efficiency and cost-effectiveness for more than 10 schools and councils that have signed up so far,

The company’s delivery teams are working with schools to help them promote their service, map stops and ensure the safeguarding of pupils with checks on the validity of DBS certificates and risk assessing of stops.

CoachHire.com’s teams are looking forward to working with many more institutions helping them to develop home to school services that relieve congestion during the busy school run whilst ensuring a safe and reliable journey for all their pupils
