Omnibus at Coach and Bus UK

All the usual Omnibus software will be on show at the newly re-named Coach and Bus UK at the NEC in October.

Members of the Omnibus team will be available to give demos and explain more about the software systems, such as OmniTIMES, OmniBASE, OmniROTA and OmniMAP.

The brand new OmniSTOPdesign is expected to attract a lot of interest from operators wanting to create flexible bus stop publicity in an instant. Its new features include total control over styles, fonts, graphics, colours and even paper size, giving the opportunity to fully incorporate any relevant branding.

Driver communication is also expected to be a key topic. With large numbers of drivers to manage it can become challenging for operators to manage all their requests for information. Omnibus’s new driver App, myDAS Touch, is an integral part of the OmniDAS driver self-service module, linking drivers directly with the Omnibus depot allocation system. It allows drivers to access all their own details, including rota and holiday details, from their phone whilst out and about, or from other devices when at home.

Training is another hot topic at the moment, and Omnibus is launching a new service to help schedulers to make the most of the software. There will be a regular programme of training courses on the entire range of Omnibus software. It is designed for operators that have had software in place for some time but need new training for new members of staff joining their team.

Peter Crichton, Managing Director of Omnibus, comments: “As usual we have a lot to talk about with visitors to CBUK this year. We are looking forward to sharing these new developments with customers and helping others to address scheduling or communication issues with our range of solutions.”

The Omnibus stand is C10 and is located next to the Seminar Theatre.
