PORTERVILLE TRANSIT, PORTERVILLE, CA
“While we looked at other ITS providers, it really came down to having a full service vendor – and knowing that our project would not be piecemealed by multiple vendors. We liked that RouteMatch Software offered one database with a single sign on, and one point of contact for support. Having our technology hosted through RouteMatch Cloud Services was a huge benefit as we have a small IT staff. We felt that RouteMatch brought forth discussions, paid attention, and worked closely with us to understand our needs.”
JONESBORO ECONOMICAL TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM (JETS), JONESBORO, AR
“RouteMatch has saved our schedulers and reservationist at least 45 minutes a day, and that adds up. It has made our operations more efficient, which enables us to focus on additional strategic ways to improve ridership. Using technology to increase efficiency is also important for our plans for serving more riders and regional expansion and coordination.
Overall, RouteMatch has greatly helped our agency. We have become more time and cost efficient in a short time. Our agency is growing and there is more awareness of our services. We hope to implement more components with RouteMatch going forward. I don’t know how we could have done the things we’ve been able to do in the past year without RouteMatch.”
MEDICAL MOTORS, ROCHESTER, NY
“Prior to implementing RouteMatch in 2006, we provided 427,000 trips – we are now up to 550,000 trips. At the same time, we have been able to retain the same number of drivers, 150, while reducing office staff.
RouteMatch helps us manage about 75 different funding sources with different billing rules. These are accounts that range in size from single individuals to groups consisting of thousands of trips per billing cycle, and RouteMatch’s automated system helps us efficiently gain insight into this data. We run reports once a month, and it is now a much more efficient, timely process. The ad hoc reporting has also been a very useful tool to create customized insights into the data.
We have also increased our trips per hour – from 1.7 per hour and up to 2.2 – which is over 25% growth. RouteMatch has definitely helped us increase our services and manage those services.”
EAST TEXAS COUNCIL OF GOVERNMENTS (ETCOG), KILGORE, TX
“RouteMatch technology and customer support has greatly helped our agency. We perform approximately 600 to 800 trips a day with 40 drivers. Our move over to tablets has also been very beneficial – it has reduced our time and processes for verifications by at least 80 %. The driver training and transition to the tablets has been very effective.
The optimization tool with RouteMatch is also great. We know it has the ability to do everything we need it to do and we plan to take advantage of that.
CABBARUS COUNTY, KANNAPOLIS, NC
“RouteMatch helps me – and our agency – break down barriers. The ad hoc reporting ability enables us to manage information, costs and services. The ability to have insight into our data, and what the data specifically tells us, backs-up our requests for more funding.
RouteMatch is really where the rubber meets the road and RouteMatch helps us keep that rubber running more efficiently.
The billing tool paired with the ad hoc reporting engine, enables us to cherry-pick whatever request comes in from multiple sources – federal, state, and local – and efficiently fulfill those requests in one grouping.
RouteMatch’s platform is the most customer friendly program that you’re going to find – it’s easy to navigate and use. As long as you maintain clean and up to date data, the system works beautifully.”
CITY OF LONGVIEW TRANSIT, LONGVIEW, TX
“RouteMatch technology enabled us to streamline our dispatching and scheduling operations. We moved from manual processes of pen and paper to an automated one and our now able to run ad hoc reports to pull relevant data in a user-friendly way.
RouteMatch Customer Service is excellent – there was no hold time, no wait time. We called when our power was down and we couldn’t pull our schedules. Customer Service pulled our schedules, and within 20 minutes they had emailed them to us. Customer Service also helped up change things on the schedule – it was above and beyond the usual. We have been very pleased with Customer Service.”
VERMONT AGENCY OF TRANSPORTATION (VTRANS)
“We’re looking to the future. Our goal is to establish a modern, sustainable foundation for new innovations that’s more easily supported. We’re also planning for greater cross regional trip coordination. With a common technology platform, public transit systems, private providers, and veteran’s transportation providers can more seamlessly gather and share trip information. This gives our riders more mobility and trip planning options. RouteMatch’s team has been thoughtful and methodological. We are excited.”
