Use Cases

Encore is able to provide education organizations like yours with critical data that can help enhance workforce efficiency.

School Bus Fleet Tracking

A county school district needed a more efficient way to keep track of its more than 700 buses which altogether clocked around 42,000 miles each day. The district needed a way to monitor driver locations so they could warn parents of potential delays. Plus, they wanted to better keep tabs on speeds and route selection.

School Bus Maintenance

One school district was in need of a solution to assure they were staying on top of regular vehicle maintenance. Failing to do so was proving to be costly, as it made these vehicles more prone to breaking down. With Encore, there are regular alerts set up to make sure routine appointments were not overlooked, helping to keep buses running in much better shape.

Security

A school was looking for a way to track their nighttime security guard and make sure they were doing the necessary rounds at the right time. Management was able to take advantage of Encore’s Barcode Scanning feature in order to implement a series of check-in spots. Now, security guards must manually scan each checkpoint in order to verify that rounds were being completed as instructed.

Encore, the end-to-end solution for fleet and workforce management.
