Coach Hire Exchange Goes Live!


UK Flag US Flag AU Flag

Distinctive Systems is pleased to announce the launch of Coach Hire Exchange (CHX), a cloud-based passenger recovery and job exchange service available free of charge to all coach and minibus operators.

CHX is designed to help operators find immediate assistance in the event of a breakdown, or any other situation where passengers need to be picked up and transported as soon as possible.  It is also designed to make it easy for operators to find another operator to cover a planned job they need to contract out.

CHX can be used by any coach, minibus or associated operator handling their own private hires, contracts, day excursions, extended tours or express services.  Any operator can post their own jobs and offer to cover jobs posted by other operators.

CHX is a standalone service and is not dependent on any other systems.  It is incredibly quick and easy to use and is of equal benefit to operators both with and without a booking management system.

The CHX website can be used on a browser running on a desktop or laptop computer, a tablet or a smartphone.  The website's responsive design adapts automatically to any size of display.

CHX is also available as a free app.  The Coach Hire Exchange app for iPhone® and iPad® is available on the App Store™.  The Android™ app is available on Google Play™.

CHX has separate entry forms for urgent and non-urgent jobs which keep the job details required to a minimum.  To make posting an urgent passenger recovery request as quick as possible, the only input details required are the pick-up point, destination, number of passengers and any further requirements.  Non-urgent jobs have have additional input fields for pick-up date and time, back date and time, vehicle size and vehicle type.

The instant a new job is posted, CHX sends out emails and app notifications to all other operators.  This process is fully automated so as ensure operators are able to respond literally within just a few seconds.

All available jobs can be viewed by any operator at any time on the CHX website or app.  Full operator contact details are always included.

CHX provides an easy to use built-in mechanism for operators to make and accept job offers.  Emails and app notifications are sent out automatically for all offers and acceptances..

CHX is an entirely free of charge service.  There are no membership fees or commission charges.  So you have nothing to lose and a great deal to gain by registering now!
