27 September 2023 – McGill’s Bus Group, the UK’s largest independent operator, has selected Omnibus cloud technology to optimise scheduling at its recently acquired Scotland East operation – and with a seamless implementation taking just one week.
The decision extends its partnership with Velociti Group and comes following a rigorous assessment of other cloud solutions on the market. McGill’s determined the Omnibus cloud scheduling solution provided the optimal operational answers, is more intuitive and allows for scenarios to be produced quickly.
The McGill’s Scotland East bus operation runs 4 depots (Larbert, Bannockburn, Balfron and Livingston) in the Stirling, Falkirk, West Lothian and Edinburgh areas.
Colin Napier, Group Operations Director at McGill’s, said: “We need systems which support our aims for growth and profitability. Our extensive assessment firmly concluded the Omnibus cloud scheduling solution provided the most efficient answers first time with impressive speeds and flexibility that could not be matched.
“Omnibus has a deep understanding of the UK bus market and is a trusted software solutions supplier to McGill’s. Omnibus has worked closely with senior management in bringing the very latest technology to provide operational efficiencies. We look forward to developing our partnership further with the Omnibus team.”
Peter Crichton, Founder of Omnibus, said: “We are delighted McGill’s selected the Omnibus suite of planning and scheduling solutions and look forward to supporting the McGill’s Scotland East operation. Users at the former operation are experienced users of Omnibus which will make their transition seamless.”
