Bus fleet management software: 95% accuracy in real-time bus fleet tracking

Innowise developed an interactive dashboard for a bus fleet management software, improving the monitoring of bus fleet operations and enhancing the accuracy of bus schedules, passenger counts, and service reliability.


Client since

Our client is a prominent bus operator, recognized for its significant role in the public transport sector, especially in Sweden. The company is known for its wide range of transportation services, including procured public transport, school traffic, commercial line, and on-demand services.

Detailed information about the client cannot be disclosed under the provisions of the NDA.


Enhancing the overall functionality and usability of the bus fleet management software

The client’s previous transport fleet management software, primarily focused on bus fleet management, began to reveal significant limitations. The challenges were multi-dimensional, stemming from a dashboard that failed to accurately track and report key operational metrics and the allocation of resources. These shortcomings became increasingly evident in several areas:

  • Inaccurate bus movement and resource allocation tracking: The client’s bus fleet management software struggled with correctly monitoring bus routes, leading to discrepancies in arrival and departure times. This issue was compounded by the inability to identify the reasons behind trip cancellations or delays, as well as properly tracking driver workload.
  • Faulty passenger count: A critical flaw was the system’s ineffectiveness in tracking the number of passengers boarding and alighting. This resulted in unreliable data, impacting the client’s ability to make decisions regarding route planning.
  • Data interpretation errors: The existing dashboard, designed to interpret vast amounts of data, was riddled with miscalculations, leading to a distorted view of the operational efficiency and service quality.
  • Statistical inconsistencies: There were noticeable inconsistencies in the statistical reporting, which hindered the ability to perform trend analysis for resource allocation.
  • User experience challenges: The user interface of the pre-existing dashboard was not intuitive, making it difficult for staff to navigate and extract information.

Given these multifaceted challenges, the client sought our expertise to overhaul their dashboard system. The goal was to develop a solution that not only rectified these specific issues but also enhanced the overall functionality and usability of the bus fleet management software.
