Software Training

Education and training are vital to every successful transportation management system implementation. Georef understands the challenges of keeping your staff’s skills and knowledge up to date. With Software Training from Georef, you can protect and enhance both your software and human resources investment. At Georef, we're known for our personal, hands-on approach to learning, with quality training materials and suitable technology. All of Georef’s standardized software training courses are developed and maintained by our knowledgeable staff.

Each Georef software training course is designed to support users of our GIS-based transportation solution. Our reputation for excellence in transportation management and education is built on a hands-on approach to professional learning. Students are provided with certificates of completion for each course taken.

Our training facility in Waterloo, Ontario is equipped with the latest technology, both hardware and software. Class sizes are restricted to maximize instructor-student interaction. Upon course completion, students receive a comprehensive training manual complete with lecture notes, exercises, and data.

Alternatively, to provide you with quality software and technology training at your convenience, we have created the BusPlanner Mobile Training Centre. This Mobile Training Centre is a set of current notebook computers loaded with Georef’s software and the course data required to deliver our training course at your location - with no setup required by those hosting the training. Georef instructors will travel to your site and provide standard (or customized) training courses for your organization, resulting in significant time and cost savings for you. Training courses available include both software usage and Administration topics. In addition, courses can be tailored to meet the specific business needs of your organization.

Georef currently offers 10 standardized training courses for new users, advanced users, administrators, and managers.   New training courses are being created in response to customer feedback.  To attend a training course, click here.

Planning

For users of our BusPlanner Suite, we offer consulting services to help you optimize your existing routes.  BusPlanner features a range of powerful optimization tools that are capable of dramatically streamlining and enhancing your routing solution.  Our team of BusPlanner experts will make sure these tools are working for you—to their full capacity.  We also provide policy and process consulting for student transportation managers.

For schools or districts looking to fully outsource their routing, Georef offers complete, top-to-bottom route planning services.  We’ll set up your routes, runs, and bus stops, and ensure that any new students are assigned to busing as needed.  And with our support staff only a phone call away, you'll know that you can always get in touch with us if need be.  Leaving the route planning to us means peace of mind for you.

Data Services

Keeping your street network up to date can be a challenge.  Fortunately, we offer on-demand map update services for all of our BusPlanner clients. Whether you need your map updated once a month or once a year, we can help.  Just send us your current street network and leave the heavy lifting up to us.

We also provide customized reporting and analysis services for a variety of functions, including state/provincial reporting.  We know how complex and time-consuming reporting can be for our clients - that's why we'll take your report requirements and data and produce the reports you need.  Let Georef take the stress out of your reporting process.

Finding room to store your GPS data can be difficult.  Through our partner company, GPS Hosting Inc., we offer secure, Canada-based hosting for transportation providers with GPS solutions.  With round-the-clock access to our server, GPS information will never be more than a few clicks away—and all without having to create or purchase additional space on your own server.  With our hosting services, you'll know your data is in good hands.
