Synovia and Everyday Solutions Merge to Synovia Solutions, Deliver GPS Services for School Transportation
By Calvin Azuri, TMCnet Contributor
Synovia and Everyday Solutions, Inc. recently entered into an agreement to create a new entity called Synovia Solutions. The new entity will provide customers with an affordable and extensive range of GPS-driven solutions that focus on automating school transportation management for K-12 organizations and school districts operating their own vehicles.
These solutions can also be leveraged by other independent companies providing school districts with transportation services.
Synovia Solutions will be headquartered in Indianapolis, IN.
Together, the merged companies optimize transportation operations of close to 60,000 school buses and school services covering the North American region. Furthermore, the new entity will make use of a robust technology platform to serve both municipal and private management customer segments.
“The merger is expected to provide synergies in both product development and distribution by leveraging innovations formulated within each company,” said Jon King, CEO at Synovia Solutions (formerly CEO of Synovia). “It is remarkable what these two companies have created independently over the course of the last ten years. By combining products, resources, and talent we will provide electronic school transportation management for the K-12 marketplace with a comprehensive set of solutions that is unmatched in the industry.”
Synovia Solutions will combine the best attributes of both companies and focus on the development of an advanced range of electronic school transportation management solutions. In addition to providing simple GPS tracking and inspection, the new range of solutions will deliver a host of benefits, including real-time GPS tracking, along with essential performance indicators and a robust integration with route planning; driver and rider attendance applications; inspections before and after a trip; advanced engine diagnostics and bus navigation; and notification systems that keeps parents informed about bus stops and routes.
The advanced enterprise solutions can substantially bring down operational inefficiencies and ensure safe travel for students between their homes and their school. An optimized transportation system will also ensure better adherence to schedules, increase time available for learning, and reduce unnecessary costs on the part of educational institutions.
Synovia Solutions will expand its business operations by selling advanced applications to the combined customers of both companies and by capturing a new customer base.
