Leeds independent Squarepeg Buses has chosen omnibus cloud solutions for its scheduling and operations.
The company, which has a peak vehicle requirement of 13, will use Omnibus for timetabling, vehicle scheduling, rostering, mapping, depot allocation, and data sharing after it said it needed software to “work smarter” in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Says Director of Squarepeg Buses Simon Daymond: “We’ve always embraced technology and our approach has been to find opportunities through software, rather than scrambling for solutions when problems occur. COVID-19 brought this to the fore and gave us an opportunity to pause and reflect on what we do as a business.
“We were impressed by the clear superiority of the Omnibus products and the cloud benefits they will provide our family-focused business. We’re driven by the needs of our passengers; the team at Omnibus has a strong background in the bus industry and deep understanding of the challenges operators face which will make a major contribution to the continued high quality of our services.”
Adds Peter Crichton, Founder of Omnibus: “We are delighted that Squarepeg Buses has chosen Omnibus to address its scheduling and operational requirements to support its future growth and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Our technology is designed specifically for schedulers and is quick and easy to use with efficient processes which improve productivity.”
Squarepeg buses provides public, private and school services in Leeds and the surrounding areas.
