Planning home to school transport is complicated and politically sensitive.

But often, expert teams spend valuable time processing simple, ‘open and shut’ cases and explaining those decisions to parents.

Of course, there will always be nuanced cases that need a person to evaluate them.

By automating processes, you can ensure consistency, transparency, and lighten the load so your team to focus their attention where it’s most needed.
