The following is a brief description of how the Coach Manager GPS integration works for all current vendors.

The integration makes it easy to show the current location of a vehicle from directly within Coach Manager. The vehicle location can be displayed from within Allocations by right clicking the vehicle in the drag & drop grid and from within Scheduling by right clicking on the vehicle allocation bar.

In order to enable this functionality all that is required is to add valid login credentials for the GPS vendor into the Coach Manager setup area and to add a GPS unit ID against each vehicle.

As part of this functionality, a Passenger Recovery Movement wizard is also included. Once a Vehicle has been located using the GPS location functionality, the user can click the Create Passenger Recovery Movement wizard button on the toolbar across the top of vehicle location window.

The wizard uses the current vehicle position and the movement the vehicle is currently allocated to, to automatically produce the required movements for collecting stranded passengers from their current position, take them to their destination and, if necessary, return them back to their first pick-up location.

As the final part of the wizard, the user can also select if they would like to post the recovery movements to Coach Manager Connect for assistance by another operator.

The integration is available free of charge to all Coach Manager users with a current software maintenance agreement.
