Online Driver Portal Released
Distinctive Systems has released released a free of charge cloud based Driver Portal for our Coach Manager private hire and contract booking system.
The portal lets drivers log in securely to an intuitive desktop and mobile friendly website where they can view an online diary showing the bookings they have been allocated to. Clicking on a booking will immediately bring up the full details of its work ticket.
Drivers can print their work tickets directly from the website, or download them to a desktop, laptop or mobile device. If preferred, operators can still send work tickets directly to a driver’s smartphone, or print them for subsequent collection from the office.
In the Coach Manager allocations diary, the traffic office is able to see when a driver has looked at a booking and has printed or downloaded the work ticket. Optionally, drivers can be allowed to say whether or not they are able to take on a booking they have been allocated to.
The Driver Portal follows hot on the heels of our recently released Client Portal. This lets your clients request and accept quotations, list and check their bookings, view a statement of account and make secure online payments via the same desktop and mobile friendly interface. A third portal, which will open up online access to the operations side of Coach Manager, is currently under development.
The online portals can either be hosted on an operator’s own web server, or for those who prefer not to have to do this, they can be hosted remotely on a server operated by Distinctive Systems.
