Inkster Public Schools - GPS solution tool
"As Inkster Public Schools begin to grow and offer a variety of new educational programs, we believe the safety of our student population is paramount. We are so proud in partnering with Sprint Nextel to help ensure student safety on the school district's bus transportation system," said Pete Lopez, director, Technology, Inkster Public School District. "This new GPS solution tool will allow administrators to know and locate in real time, the status of every school bus that's transporting our children. Furthermore, it will collect valuable information to help us maintain and operate a more efficient and effective bus transportation department on limited school funds. The Inkster School District puts the safety of all children as a number one priority with GPS!"
ActSoft Comet Tracker - Wireless data software
Developed by ActSoft, Inc., Comet Tracker is wireless data software that runs on Nextel GPS Java-enabled phones, and allows the Inkster Public Schools to track the location of their fleet of school buses real time. "The acceptance of this product by Michigan school districts has been incredible," said Jim Marshall, director, Public Sector Sales, Sprint Nextel. "The number one goal has been the safety of the students, followed by the efficiency of the transportation department. The ability to instantly locate buses or students with just the click of a button, has proven to be of great value to transportation departments, administrators, and parents."

The GPS system wirelessly transmits real-time location information to the dispatch center on the Nextel National Network to a server where data is monitored by the district's transportation department allowing transportation officials to monitor the location of the buses as they pick up and drop off students along their routes and improve safety. Bus locations are displayed on a map, allowing dispatchers to quickly recognize if a bus delayed or off course. Location information can be displayed on a computer screen or Sprint Nextel Blackberry device.

Location data can also be stored to mange the fleet more efficiently; minute-by-minute updates of bus locations offer the ability to view an exact bus route and can generate increased efficiencies and reduced operating costs over a period of time. "ActSoft is proud to have partnered with Sprint Nextel on this and hundreds of other similar school bus installations," said Tony Esposito, vice president Sales & Marketing, ActSoft. "The solution has allowed school districts like Inkster to manage and extend the life of expensive assets such as school buses, and help them do a better job of keeping their most valuable asset, the students, in a safe environment that provides peace of mind to administrators and parents."
