Easy Rides Basic
Designed for small to medium sized systems, Easy Rides Basic has all the features you’ll need in an affordable, easy to use package.
Easy Rides Basic has all of the features of Easy Rides Starter but with no limits how many vehicles or routes you can operate. Easy Rides Plus included extra customizable lists for recording extra data for clients and trip tickets. It also includes Trip Validation, an enhanced dispatch board with a staging area, Route Parameter Replication (RPR) for simplified scheduling and a Rides Analyzer tool to quickly get the data you need. Training is provided via GoToMeeting and an onsite visit.
Based on Microsoft SQL Server technology, the Easy Rides database is open for customers to develop their own analysis and reports using MS Access, Crystal Reports, etc. In addition, Easy Rides provides export capabilities to Excel, an enhanced Report Generator, and four standard reports.
Even without expensive Geographical Information Systems (GIS), Easy Rides provides three levels of geographical discrimination: neighborhoods (sites), zones, and jurisdictions. Grouping trips and reporting trip information is easier and much more powerful using this advanced technology.
Easy Rides can filter the types of tickets that can be assigned to specified vehicles and runs. Runs and vehicles may be reserved for certain funders, providers, and custom parameters specified by the user. You can also check to see if seats and/or wheelchair slots are available before assigning a requested trip.
