It is designed to help operators find immediate assistance in the event of a breakdown, or any other situation where passengers need to be picked up and transported as soon as possible. It also makes it easy for operators to find another operator to cover a planned job they need to contract out.
Stephen MillarManaging Director, Dorgan’s Group (Dublin & Newry)
The Coach Manager software by Distinctive Systems is essential to run Dorgan’s Group Vehicles. We also use VMS to manage our own current fleet of 30 vehicles as well as 164 other vehicles which we look after for our Maintenance Management customers. Distinctive Systems software is probably the best available to the coach industry worldwide.

We have been using TBS to manage the tours and client base for our Travel Club. We have found the system to be invaluable in terms of productivity improvements, particularly in relation to the inbuilt reports. TBS has allowed our sales staff to spend more time selling our product, rather than spending valuable time on administrative tasks such as invoicing, receipting and preparing tour departure reports. The comprehensive client database and sales ledger have also proven to be a very useful marketing tool, allowing us to actively target specific segments of our client base.
Dennis LyonsVice President, DATTCO, Inc.
When DATTCO set out to replace our legacy system we knew we needed two things; a software solution that offered us the versatility to do things the way our business dictates and a partner that understood our needs. We found both in Distinctive Systems.

We have been using Distinctive Systems VMS for 3 years and have found a dramatic improvement in our ability to capture parts and labour costs. The system further provides us with an accurate prediction of when scheduled maintenance is required and ensures compliance to our regulatory authority.

Coach Manager has totally changed the way our operation runs and has made it much easier for us to manage our resources more efficiently and effectively by combining rostering, quoting, fleet & staff management and invoicing all into the one system.
