FMS Nimbus

Partner with POLICE & TRANSPORT LICENSING BOARD, SCHOOLS, BUS COMPANY Associations

FMS NimBus solves the tasks of route planning and performance control, vehicle distribution and assignment, and scheduling management. Moreover, the web application enables efficient real-time tracking and detailed reporting on fleet activity. In practice, it’s simpler than expected:

  1. Add or import stops;
  2. Create routes and add schedules;
  3. Assign units to routes;
  4. Track unit movements in real time;
  5. Get event-based notifications for prompt reaction;
  6. Generate detailed reports.

Getting started with NimBus
To start working with the service, add the new app from the library and authorize in FMS NimBus. Activate a “Depot” for one of your lower-level accounts and continue working under the sub-account. Good luck!

Stops
Starting to manage an average bus fleet? Create stops in one click on the map or set its exact location in address search field. Made a switch to NimBus from another system and have a database ready to use? Import it from .kml/.kmz file and keep on working in the new service.

  • Create waypoints of any shape to ensure their visiting even on the most complicated junctions.
  • Specify transport vehicle type for advanced filtration and search in the list and on the map.
  • Add a detailed description to differentiate between stops in opposite directions.
  • Get quick access to the stop on the map while working with the list.

Routes
In NimBus a route is a sequence of stops. For their visiting, you need to add schedules, assign units and set operational patterns. The latter activate routes only in the specified days and allow to create individual working schedules for each route and fleet.

  • Use dynamic search and filtration by vehicle type.
  • Change waypoints order using drag&drop approach.
  • Fill in route description to differentiate between temporary, standard, direct, holiday, and return routes.
  • Add from one to several hundreds of schedules depending on weekdays, seasons, road works periods and other conditions.
  • Save dispatchers’ time by specifying the units traditionally following the route in advance.

The route is created. Quickly. Let’s proceed to the rides.

Rides
After adding schedules and activating routes we come over to rides planning. When the route is active, rides based on its schedules are created automatically. Rides can be grouped by a route/unit or filtered by vehicle types and assignments.

  • View planned rides for any date and manage rides within the following week.
  • Study the core information on the ride in a user-friendly style.
  • Use dynamic search and filtration to identify rides with no units assigned

Online tracking
Real-time ride performance control is simple.
Despite the specifics of dispatcher operations we never abandon unit tracking on the map. At the moment there’re three GIS sources available in NimBus.
Specifically for dispatchers, we implemented a handy timeline and quick notifications to control late/early arrivals, deviations from the route and other circumstances demanding the immediate reaction.

  • Avoid clusters of vehicles on the route by ensuring the uniformity of their distribution.
  • View detailed information on stops and units when pointing at the corresponding elements.
  • Make use of color identification when analyzing late/early arrivals.
  • Check geographically correct unit locations on the map.

Moreover, we added an option to replace a vehicle on the already started ride. That way you’ll continue tracking in the shortest possible time even if there was a breakdown on the route.

Reports
Reports ensure access to rides history and performance quality assessment in terms of routes and units. The analytics allow to further optimize the operations of passenger transportation services.

  • Generate basic and detailed reports.
  • Execute reports for the intervals of up to 100 days.
  • Export reports in .xlsx.
