Bus gps advised for schools

In the news we have heard that the government has advised schools to put gps in the schoolbus. The reason is safety. In this way you can check where the bus has been or is going.

Times of India Article about the GPS in schoolbuses

Besides this main important reason, there can be many other reasons for GPS in the schoolbus. As school you need to know, who is in which bus, when will the bus arrive at the pickup point, which fee the student has to pay. Our software already has these options.

  • The student is linked with the right bus and with the right busfee. So while paying the schoolfee the computer knows which busfee needs to be paid.
  • Parents can receive sms when the bus is near the drop/pickup point.
  • The student can be easily transferred to another bus.
  • The administrator and the parents can follow their bus from their computer or smartphone in realtime.
  • And many other options.gpsbus

Offline or Online School Software?

The internet has taken over the world. And no longer is a website just a visitingcard for businesses, but is has become a place where we meet and do things. Even for schoolsoftware the internet has become an option. But what is better an online software or an offline software.

Offline Software

The traditional software is an application that is installed in the computer. Like Word or Excell we can open our file and work on it. In the same way software companies have been making software that is installed in one computer and can do the schooladministration. Some software have been developed as a network software, a server is installed in the school and several computers are working on the same database.

What are the pro’s What are the contra’s
  • The data is save in your computer
  • No worry about internet connection
  • Limited access (only one computer)
  • When computer crash chance that data is lost
  • High investement (both software and computers)
  • High maintenance (software company has to come to location)

Online Software

Online software is developing fast. Like google docs we can edit word documents from our browser only. In the same way School Software can run from the browser and do everything that offline software also can do, but even more.

What are the pro’s What are the contra’s
  • Software can be accessed by everyone (each one their own portal)
  • Online features like sms, gps, teacher and parent portal can be included
  • The software is flexible and will update automatically
  • The software is lowcost since all you need is a computer with internet
  • No worry about crashing computers
  • The school is live on the internet
  • This will be the future, google and microsoft are working hard on software that only works with internet
  • You need an internet connection

We think the choice is easy and the future is online software. That is why we have chosen to develop an online software rather then the traditional offline software. But it’s your choice. See our software by clicking on the links at the top of this page.
