Discover the standalone solution for communicating with your riders. TripSpark’s Notification System is specifically designed around the service needs and budgetary requirements of paratransit agencies. This cloud-based solution automatically notifies passengers about trips so they can cancel or confirm those trips quickly. As well, call or text-in features provide users access to their own schedules. Notifications is fast to implement, easy to configure, reduces confusion and improves customer service: all while requiring fewer resources.
When a rider books a trip, a notification is automatically triggered. Riders get more personalized attention by receiving a notification days and moments before a trip. Without talking to an operator, they can send/receive updates and easily cancel or confirm.
Dispatchers can know immediately if a trip has been canceled and pass updates to drivers before resources are wasted. Automated notifications are easy to configure (even mass notifications) so you needn’t worry about having to manually call riders one at a time. Attractive system features:
Traditional IVR systems can cost a great deal in terms of set-up and maintenance. Our cloud-based solution requires no installation of new telephone lines or a client-side server (when hosting with us). Software updates are seamless and cloud hosting reduces IT involvement considerably.
* Savings for no-shows alone, not including time and cost for calling to confirm or reschedule trips. Year calculation assumes 252 working days a year.
By reducing the frequency of no shows, late cancelations, canceled at the door events, driver wait times, etc., you can remove resource-wasting inefficiencies throughout your operation. Having updates reduces the confusion that can destabilize your schedule.
