Good planning is everything. With its versatile and user-friendly tools for the planning and optimisation of vehicle routes and duty rosters (PlanB) as well as for personnel scheduling (moveo Dispo), highQ enables efficient, cost-saving processes in transportation companies. Because our solutions are freely scalable, they are just as suitable for small, regional bus companies as they are for major metropolitan transport networks.
With PlanB, timetables become more attractive, vehicle capacity is better utilised and rosters can be flexibly adapted to the needs of your staff. It goes without saying that working and driving time regulations, as well as your own collective agreements, are taken into account in a legally compliant manner. If required, you can use mathematical optimisation tools to reveal additional efficiency reserves in your schedules.
PlanB can be installed on a USB stick as easily as in large IT infrastructures, and is also available as an SaaS application. The optimisation functions can be integrated as an additional module or – for occasional users – are also available as SaaS.
Regardless of the complexity of the installation, the software is characterised by its simple and intuitive operation. As a result, even users who only occasionally perform planning tasks will quickly get to grips with PlanB.
PlanB is a process-orientated system for transport companies of all sizes. Besides being used for municipal transport planning processes, it also takes into account and supports the needs of regional transport in particular.
PlanB provides you with a convenient solution, integrated into your work process, for planning and simulating new conditions. This allows you to optimise your systems and shape the future according to your goals.
Small shift = major effect: reducing your vehicle fleet through minimal changes in departure times.
Day-based planning of vehicle routes
Numerous export interfaces are available for supplying downstream systems such as ITCS, information systems or ticket printers. A major focus is on the VDV standard interfaces.
A large variety of different data can also be exported directly from the system via Microsoft Excel and as CSV files for further processing.
The moveo Dispo scheduling solution developed by Moveo Software GmbH can be seamlessly integrated into our PlanB planning system. It complements the scheduling of journeys, routes and duty rosters with the functions of duty roster planning and personnel dispatching. When used in combination, the tools offer you a scope of services comparable to that of the “big” planning systems – and with significantly lower demands on your own IT infrastructure. What is more, moveo Dispo is also available as an SaaS solution.
With PlanB’s Optimisation as a Service, you receive a customised set of results based on your own data and requirements. In this process, the optimisation is based on your individual goals. We determine your optimal vehicle requirements and create different variants of optimised duty rosters and routing schedules. Simply as a service. Uniquely and individually tailored to your company.
“highQ not only has the IT expertise, but also experts who really know something about public transport. PlanB provides proof that a powerful planning system can be a controllable, practice-orientated tool. We were able to implement the system in our company within just a few months and successfully went live on schedule. highQ has been a professional partner from the very beginning.”
Arno Demand, Managing Director, QNV Queichtal Nahverkehrsgesellschaft GmbH
“We have had excellent experiences with PlanB from highQ for timetable and duty roster scheduling and profahr from moveo. Both systems complement each other perfectly. Via an interface, services created in PlanB can be quickly and easily transferred to profahr for scheduling, even with frequent adjustments. By means of differential export, data transfer will take even less time in the future.”
