Oct. 10, 2012 - PRLog -- SEPTEMBER 2012 — Bogotá, COLOMBIA. After exhaustive testing of the main software solutions available on the market by Bogotá's Integrated Public Transit System (SITP in Spanish), one of the companies that operates the city's system, CONSORTIO EXPRESS, has chosen GoalBus® and GoalDriver® as tools for optimal resource planning and shift assignments for personnel, respectively. This will give the company an advantaged technological and operational position within the system.

Acquisition and implementation of the GoalBus® and GoalDriver® software now ensures that the company will enjoy an excellent position within the SITP, since it will benefit from the highest level of optimization on the market, and therefore lower operating costs as well. The most advanced planning products available from GOAL SYSTEMS provide savings of over 10% on operational expenses, compared to companies using manual scheduling or using other systems.

CONSORCIO EXPRESS can now incorporate the services it was already receiving from the regulatory agency into GoalBus®, with the following additional benefits:

— Performance of all types of timetable and bus service simulations, taking into account driver services, ideal route distributions, and overall operating costs.
— Performance of optimized calculation of the driver services required to cover the bus routes that the Information Collection System (SIRCI in Spanish) includes on its planned schedules, while also taking labor regulations, operating rules, and each company's internal policies into consideration.
— Assignment of drivers to driver shifts, taking all types of labor, company, or individual regulations into account.
— Integration of the shifts and the drivers assigned to them into the SAE in the SIRCI, so that the information can be used automatically.
— Full access to the GOAL SYSTEMS support team, with 12 years of experience, and whose members are known by our clients for their high levels of qualification and commitment.
— Interfacing with the SIRCI using direct communication between GOAL SYSTEMS tools.

In April, GOAL SYSTEMS was already awarded the contract for the SITP's operational scheduling system for buses and for Phase III of its Transmilenio service, with approximately 14,000 buses included in the entire system.

The company Consorcio Express was awarded the contact for operating 2,700 buses in the San Cristóbal and Usaquén regions.

In the next few months, new contracting is also expected to take place with the rest of the companies that operate Bogotá's SITP.
