visualizing the profitability impact of your schedule.
The BusReporter is a strategic analysis tool, which combines both planning and financial processes. Making astute management decisions help to determine a bus operator’s profitability. While bus operations have traditionally been a rather static business, today’s increasing competition and market volatility call for rapid changes, requiring agile and proactive management decisions. An important key to profitability improvement for the bus operating company is the bridging of its planning and financial processes.
Having the ability to analyze cost and revenue data (from schedules) as well as fleet and passenger demand information (on a very detailed level), enables the user to determine from where the company is gaining or losing its income. A large variety of reports, using key figures, are available and can be shown on any level that the user defines. The ease with which MP² is able to make selections and report on many levels, and at varying degrees of detail, is what makes the system so extraordinarily useful.
Strategic decision support
It is not unusual for a transport company to make use of various systems in its planning process. The BusReporter gathers and presents facts and figures, obtained from different data sources and systems within the company, to provide reliable and detailed strategic decision support. The system dynamically recalculates and updates all costs and revenue, as changes are made along the planning chain.
Tools available from within the BusReporter enable the user to easily compare scenario outcomes with the original plan which, in turn, allows identification and analysis of both the planned and operated production. Any number of schedules can be loaded for analysis and comparison.
