ByteCurve Launches School Bus Routing, Scheduling Platform

Posted on December 6, 2018

Analytics software supplier ByteCurve has launched its flagship product ByteCurve 360, a software solution designed to enhance school transportation management.

The software allows users to manage daily operations from anywhere, at any time, through scheduling, dispatch, and time and attendance modules.

ByteCurve 360 offers real-time routing information and GPS data through a daily dashboard that refreshes every 60 seconds. The dashboard provides status updates for each bus route, including bus departures and returns, a driver's clock in and out times, and school arrivals.

To improve a driver's time and attendance, the system automates the calculation of a driver’s gross wages based on route hours, scheduling, and GPS data. The system also includes customizable guarantee and overtime calculations that are supported by algorithms designed specifically for school transportation professionals.

The software is a service platform that requires no additional installation processes or software purchases. The system will integrate with users' current GPS and routing providers, according to the software supplier.
