OmniDAS depot allocation software solution



Depot allocation and control providing real-time driver and vehicle management

This solution provides real time driver and vehicle management to passenger transport operators, OmniDAS is the complete Depot Allocation System.

Proven in operation, the system can allocate and manage resources, produce timesheet and payroll information and automate staff sign-in. This allows organisations to focus on service provision without having to worry about time consuming administration.

Dynamic configuration to each client’s unique working practices

OmniDAS is entirely dynamic, configured around each operator’s working practices and keeping users appraised of the real-time situation. With a wide range of definable features and multiple levels of security, it can be used effectively throughout an organisation. Used in conjunction with our other scheduling software, it offers a complete system from timetable and rota creation to on-the-day management.

Crew allocation

The Crew Allocation module provides comprehensive allocation utilities, significantly improving the process of forward planning and on-the-day allocation. All allocation events, planned or otherwise, are accurately recorded and form the basis for output to your resident payroll system. Within the real-time environment, control of drivers is continuously monitored against relevant drivers’ hours legislation and company rules offering and offers your staff assurances when making those quick decisions.

The clocking system and driver information screen allow control personnel to concentrate on the operation of services by providing alternatives to constant staff interaction. Each driver signs on with a swipe card, or by manual input, and is supplied with information specifying duty detail, vehicle information and essential communications. Lateness and ‘failure to report’ instances are registered for immediate attention by audible and visible warnings. To assist drivers, the drivers’ information screen is used to view future duties and holidays, and to volunteer for rest day working. This information can be requested as a text to a mobile phone.

Vehicle allocation

Vehicle Allocation facilitates the assignment of buses to specific trips with all available, used and out of service vehicles displayed in a realtime environment. Allocated and unallocated running boards are visibly identifiable with mismatched buses highlighted. Supplementary information regarding vehicle data, branding criteria and parking locations can be recorded.

Time and attendance

The accurate recording of employees’ worked hours and payments are essential for the smooth running of an operation. OmniDAS allows users to monitor attendance within an organisation and provide detailed information for use within payroll.

This module is kept up to date by both the Crew Allocation and Personnel modules with current information relating to employees’ attendance, holidays and pay information. It provides accurate payroll-ready information to a range of payroll systems. If our other scheduling software is available, the module will import any rota and duty changes automatically.


The OmniDAS Personnel module provides a comprehensive database of information relating to individual employees that goes beyond providing information for use in the other modules. As well as recording core data (personal details, holiday, absence, pay grade etc), it also stores other important data such as job history, inventory (ticket modules/packs, uniform etc.), accidents and disciplinary record that enables Human Resources to function alongside the operational system.

As a real time system, the platform alerts users to a variety of monitored information, such as licence, training and diary events. User definable report and letter writing features mean that OmniDAS is a powerful tool for Human Resources, as well as Payroll, Allocation and Management.
