GPS SAFETY, MONITORING AND TRACKING CASE STUDIES
Discover how NorthStar's customers reduce their costs and improve their safety by implementing our school bus and child tracking, monitoring and attendance system.
NorthStar features in many areas, including GPS tracking, Web monitoring, safety, Webcam security and automatic attendance.
A Renowned Academy
An renowned academy located in Bangalore implemented NorthStar to improve the safety and security of their buses and
school children. Using NorthStar's GPS devices, they were able to track the location of their school buses to optimize fleet
management and prevent unauthorized usage. NorthStar's instant alerting system and MIS reports allowed them to reduce the
number of rash driving incidents by 99.76%. Their transport department and their bus drivers' performance improved dramatically
using NorthStar's "Driver Merit System" which ranks and rewards the best drivers.
A Group of World Schools
A group of world schools headquartered in the north of India implemented NorthStar to automatically track and monitor the
attendance of their schools' children. Using NorthStar's RFID and GPS devices, they were able to track the location of their children
to monitor their safety, and automatically mark their attendance or absenteeism when they enter/exit the school bus, and
when they enter/exit the school gates. Using NorthStar's super-critical SMS alerts, schools and parents are instantly alerted
if the child misses school.
An Elite Chain of Schools
An elite chain of schools headquartered in the Mumbai implemented NorthStar to automatically SMS parents of the precise
time that their child's school bus will arrive at their stop to pick-up or drop off their children. Accurate to within 2
minutes, the information helps parents plan their time better, spend less time at bus stops, and have worry-free mornings and
afternoons, knowing that they'll be waiting there exactly when their child's bus arrives at their stop. No longer do the
children and parents miss their buses or have to wait indefinitely at stops, not knowing whether the bus is late or has already left.
An ISO-certified International School
An ISO-certified international school in Bangalore implemented NorthStar to help optimize their bus routes to save them time
and money. Their bus fleet had not been optimally planned, which caused their drivers to spend an average of 20 additional minutes
on the road per route, through densely populated areas and high-traffic zones. This had forced them to extend their bus routes and timings,
spend much more on fuel and pay their drivers extra for overtime on the road. NorthStar helped optimize not only their bus routes, but also
saved fuel and insurance; after that, buses went completely full, stopped at the fewest number of locations and traveled the shorted
distances in the lowest amount of time.
An Large School Bus Fleet Owner
A large transport owner with a fleet of school buses is using NorthStar to lower their fuel costs, stop fuel pilferage and monitor their monthly fuel-related expenses, all of which to improve their profitability and efficiency. With over 100 school buses running hundreds of kilometers every day, their fuel costs run into crores of rupees every year. This includes a 10%-15% cost of diesel theft. They are looking to save those costs and raise profits by lowering their yearly fuel expenses.
