RouteMatch Software Launches Complete Intelligent Transportation Systems Platform for Mobility Management

ATLANTA, GA and CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Sep 30, 2013) - RouteMatch Software today launches its latest comprehensive Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) technology platform to help transit systems fulfill their mobility management vision.

The platform is uniquely designed to tackle the broad spectrum of operational requirements of demand response, fixed route and/or flex route service operators.

The announcement was made at the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) Annual Conference held in Chicago, Illinois.

"This latest platform, RouteMatch 6, is purposely built for facilitating multi-modal transportation," said Tim Quinn, Executive Vice President, RouteMatch Software. "Transit operators face rising fuel and labor costs and are pressed to meet growing ridership demand. How to keep costs down while still providing excellent ridership service is a daunting task. We've stayed hyper-focused on features that directly generate substantial cost savings, business intelligence and real-time rider communications. RouteMatch 6 serves as a very powerful and flexible technology foundation to help transit agencies sustain and continuously improve operations."

The RouteMatch 6 platform can be deployed on premise or through a Cloud Services hosted environment; an intuitive user interface encourages user adoption.

Key highlights of the RouteMatch 6 platform include:

Foundation for Mobility Management- One unified fixed route, demand response, and flex route platform enables transit operators to easily access and share route, schedule, trip, driver, vehicle, rider, and other mission critical data, thereby opening doors for greater coordination between different modes of transportation services. The creation of deviated fixed routes becomes easier as does travel trip planning for riders and managing accessibility boundaries. Transit operators can also mix and match features based on need and rider demand. With everything developed on a single source code, transit systems gain more efficient management of transit resources and greater cost savings.

Meaningful Business Intelligence and Reporting- Real-time business intelligence is heavily incorporated into the new RouteMatch 6 platform. For example, Cloud Services-based analytics empower transit directors with insight into operational performance and drills down into specific key performance indicators in real-time. Graphs and "snapshots" are available for quick executive level viewing. Transit systems can also rapidly click and deploy multiple standard and ad hoc reports for State and Federal requirements. Such reporting capabilities help with the speed and quality of decision making, compliance, and uncovering opportunities for operational improvement.

Management of Intelligent Vehicles- Conveniently accessible with a single point of sign on through a vehicle logic unit, RouteMatch brings transit agencies a complete mobile data and device management system. RouteMatch combines a powerful hardware, software and communications platform for real-time communications to and from vehicles to the dispatch center as well as provides estimated time of arrival (ETA) tools for real-time rider communications. Transit agencies can also perform pre and post trip vehicle inspections from ruggedized mobile data devices assigned to drivers or vehicles, helping with safety and vehicle maintenance.

Heightened optimization at every touch point- RouteMatch has taken optimization to the next level by incorporating tools for dynamic scheduling and dispatching, future service planning and managing incidents. Proactive rules-based engines are incorporated throughout the platform, making it easier for transit agencies to gain customizable fields and be alerted of issues before they occur. Configurability is incorporated across the board within the RouteMatch 6 platform. Features can be easily synced up with a transit system's operational workflow.

Multiple extensions- RouteMatch has developed multiple extensible modules to plug and play into the RouteMatch platform, enabling organizations to further enhance their solution. Furthermore, RouteMatch has the foundation for working with other third party data sources, and considers transit agency data to belong to the agency. This non-proprietary approach gives transit agencies greater access and visibility into their data and the opportunity for future enterprise wide system integration.

"Many of the features have been built in with guidance from our client led product advisory group, and feedback from both transit executives and operators has been tremendously positive. The platform brings together cutting-edge technologies and a holistic approach toward streamlining mobility management," said Tim. "We are very excited to provide our solution to the transit industry."
