Module Passenger Transport

Includes all functions in applications that you need for complex agenda keeping connected with the operation of regular and irregular passenger transport.

 

The Passenger Transport module includes the following applications

Timetables

The application is designed for the preparation and printing of timetables. The application is linked to the Tours application. The application allows for the allocation of all needed attributes to stops and lines and automated timetable preparation and printing. The lines may have time and trial variants and unused lines may be removed and archived. The application also uses a planning calendar. Timetables may be printed for inland and international (in a foreign language) variant on scanning and postscript printers. Timetables may be exported in JDF format for CIS and in LIK format for USV-C electronic machines. They also include fares and cost return monitoring sets using revenues uploaded from the transport cash register.

Tours

This application is designed for the management of regular passenger transport (RPT). The application allows for the preparation and automatic control of tour orders for OHS compliance and preparation of tour groups (allocation of drivers and vehicles for tour order implementation) which are the basic link for the use of automated planning. Lines for tour orders can be uploaded from the Timetables application. Lines and tour orders can be created with limited time applicability. The application further includes preparation of day plans of RPT with the option of additional editing (driver or vehicle drop out) and pre-print of the daily driver record (ZPVOD).

Irregular Passenger Transport

This application is designed for the management of irregular passenger transport. The application includes order entry and economic contract record keeping, day planning of irregular passenger transport and printing of the vehicle operation record (ZPVOD). The task for order entry and processing and economic contract record keeping allows for simple pre-calculation of the transport task, preparation of a day transport plan and viewing dispatcher logs. After preparation of the day transport plan the non-included and multiple-included staff and vehicles, drivers at training sessions, on holiday etc. may be displayed. Pre-calculation of packages is a separate part of the module. The calculation of the expected package price takes into consideration the covered distance, the waiting time, road tax and fees, driver per diem, fuel price and exchange rate differences.

Dispatching Office

The main function of the Dispatching Office is the display of the current vehicle position on the map. The localisation is performed by data collection from the electronic machines in the vehicles. On-line data from operation is compared to the plan, potential conflicts (delays, overtakes, vehicle inactivity etc.) are immediately signalled and evaluated. In addition to the current position the history of vehicle movement along the route may be viewed.

Economic Sheets of Vehicles

A combined plan of regular and irregular transport may be used. The application Economic Sheets of Vehicles (ESV) shows earnings per vehicle, vehicle group, fleet, centre or company. The set of values to be monitored by the ESV application is defined by the user of the PRYTANIS system. The individual ESV items can show any data from the applications Freight Transport, Conveyance, Passenger Transport, Orders, Wages and obviously also Accounting, where documents from the whole Economics module are archived. ESV can be monitored incrementally from any date including the option of comparison of the same periods between years.

ZPVOD processing

This application performs processing and corrections of day records of vehicle operation for regular and irregular passenger transport. After processing, either every day record is billed separately or a blanket invoice is prepared. Any entered handling or items of the day transport record may be billed separately. Advance payments for transport may be used. After ZPVOD processing or correction drivers’ gross wages are automatically calculated. In the case of tour ZPVOD processing the tour performances are uploaded automatically. It is possible to set adapted tours (tour parts) to the ZPVOD including entered performance from irregular passenger transport.

Transport Cash Register

This application is used for recording the revenues returned by the passenger transport drivers. The application allows:

  • Optional entry of the driver’s personal ID, return number, vehicle registration number
  • Breakdown of the revenues pursuant to the customised types (fare, luggage...)
  • Revenue record in any currency
  • Block ticket movement record (dispensing, sales, returns)
  • Previews and recapitulation of entered data
  • Revenue return to the main cash register with automatic generation of the cash receipt slip
  • The application provides documents for comparison of actually returned and read revenues (in the application Passenger Transport rate of return)

Passenger Transport rate of return

This application is built over the database as a superstructure over the PRYTANIS information system. To prevent data redundancies, the application draws to the maximum possible extent from data primarily stored in IS PRYTANIS, and its applications Timetables, Transport Cash Register, Human Resources, ZPVOD, Tours, Accounting. The application consists of three parts: Electronic machines, Analyses-outputs and Statements.

Connection to machines

Connection to in-vehicle machines is differentiated by the limitations of the electronic machine supplier. The options include either complex integration (IS PRYTANIS is used as the back office for the in-vehicle equipment, no back office of the machine supplier is used) or partial integration (data is prepared in IS PRYTANIS to the maximum possible extent and from there forwarded to the back office of the machine supplier in the defined format). The output data from the in-vehicle machines is processed in IS PRYTANIS in a unified data structure and so data from different machine suppliers can be integrated and presented to the user in a unified format.
