Do you run a community transport fleet and are looking for aggregation as well as optimisation?

In today’s rapidly evolving business landscape, digital transformation is no longer a luxury but a necessity for organisations across various industries. One sector that is embracing this transformation is community transport, which aims to provide safe, secure, and personalised transportation services to assist the elderly, socially isolated individuals, and younger people living with disabilities. With the goal of enabling independence and fostering connections within communities, community transport providers are leveraging digital technologies to revolutionise their transport operations and enhance the quality of the transportation service they deliver.

Aggregation is the Key: Do More With Less

In the realm of community transport, the ability to optimise resources and assets plays a critical role in ensuring that no trips are turned away. Aggregation through optimisation is the key to getting the most out of existing resources and assets, allowing providers to do more with less. ORCODA, a leader in community transport technology, has developed innovative solutions that significantly increase the utilisation of fleet resources. Through their intelligent transport management system, ORCODA has enabled TransitCare, a renowned community transport provider, to deliver 25% more trips per vehicle per day without expanding their resources.

Our long term clients agree

Terry O’Toole, the CEO of TransitCare, expresses enthusiasm about the impact of ORCODA’s optimisation allocation solution on their transport operations. As the 2023 winner of the National and Global Community Transport Provider award, TransitCare handles a substantial volume of trips annually in Queensland – within Brisbane South, Logan and Redlands, Townsville, Charters Towers, Ingham and Cairns. The implementation of ORCODA’s solution promises to bring immediate and practical benefits to community members who rely on their services, allowing TransitCare to grow more efficiently and make a positive difference in the lives of their customers.

Better Customer Care with Automated Notifications

To enhance customer care and streamline operations, ORCODA has introduced the NOTIFY APP, a mobile application that automates notifications to customers, carers, and family members. By providing real-time alerts, the app keeps customers informed about their booked community transport trips. Automated notifications include updates on scheduling, next job details, and trip completion. The ORCODA NOTIFY APP can be downloaded for free from the Apple Store or Google Play, ensuring that customers have easy access to real-time updates right at their fingertips.

The adoption of the ORCODA NOTIFY APP brings benefits beyond improved customer care. By providing customers with real-time automated alerts, your call centre’s demand is significantly reduced. Customers no longer need to call to enquire about their driver’s whereabouts or confirm their bookings, as they receive timely updates through the app. This reduction in call centre demand allows community transport providers to allocate their resources more efficiently, focusing on delivering exceptional service rather than managing a high volume of inquiries.
