trentbarton selects EPM and Omnibus cloud tech

trentbarton has selected EPM and Omnibus’ cloud technology in an effort to drive end-to-end efficiency.

The East Midlands operator is taking on EPM’s new Control360 solution, a fully integrated live operations platform designed to improve service delivery. The system will assist the operator’s controllers in making optimal decisions, with automated workflows improving efficiency and providing effective communication across the business.

The solution brings together operational information from individual systems, providing users with an all-in-one operations platform to manage daily challenges and proactively resolve emerging issues through system alerts and insights, all in one place.

trentbarton will integrate Control360 with two new software implementations. The link with EPM’s incident management system, Traffic, should make it considerably easier to manage lost mileage records in real-time and reduce the amount of data input required to do so.

Control360 will also interact with the Omnibus depot allocation solution, OmniDAS. From one graphical interface in Control360, trentbarton will have complete visibility of all drivers and drag and drop capability to orchestrate changes visually using the same rule validation that exists within OmniDAS. The view can be pivoted by vehicle to allow any changes to vehicles or incidents during operation to be quickly and easily recorded.

Further efficiencies are expected with the implementation of the OmniENGAGE driver app which will allow drivers to manage their work remotely and independently in real-time. trentbarton will also move its Omnibus scheduling suite to the cloud, bringing new functionality including automatic file management and enhanced team collaboration.

The EPM and Omnibus suite of solutions will be used at trentbarton’s Trent, Kinchbus and TM Travel operations.

“…we are confident our future needs will be met as our requirements evolve” – Mark Greasley, Group Projects Director at trentbarton

Mark Greasley, Group Projects Director at trentbarton, said: “Omnibus and EPM’s strong delivery track record and their ability to deliver a total end-to-end solution without relying on outside partners for complementary expertise, make them a valued partner for trentbarton to achieve our growth plans. With their proactive approach to developing new solutions and supporting operators in improving operational efficiency, we are confident our future needs will be met as our requirements evolve.”

“By combining this data, it will be easier for trentbarton to ‘join the dots’ to identify problems” – Nick Brookes, Software Director at EPM and Omnibus

Nick Brookes, Software Director at EPM and Omnibus, said: “We are delighted to support trentbarton with end-to-end efficiency, from planning to payroll to BSOG claim.

“Operators have a plethora of tools for managing their networks on the day of operation. But data is often siloed so it is difficult to identify problems unless looking at the right screen, in the right software solution, at the right time.

“Control360 will bring key operational data from all these silos together so operators can make informed, efficient and effective decisions all in one place. By combining this data, it will be easier for trentbarton to ‘join the dots’ to identify problems and will facilitate proactive decision making; identifying problems before they even occur.

“No other solution can do this, which further enhances our expertise in passenger transport.”
