Feedback: 16 : Add yours
Edward Mbogo : Good stuff guys.
Festus K : Excellent innovation with a distinct market, I wish you all the best Solo.
Solomon K. : Thank you Festus for the support
Timothy Njeru : I hate it when my son stands in the cold waiting for the school bus not knowing when its will arrive. Your idea will solution is good for me as a parent so keep going. You may need to think through the on boarding process. I think its better if you dont allow schools to self register for security reasons and to avoid double registration.
Solomon K. : Thank you for the feedback and we've received similar sentiments. We are changing the sign-up process. Should be resolved by Monday.
Licio Lentimo : Great service you have. I would definitely like to see this in action upon launch. Are the apps live yet?
Solomon K. : Should be live next week. Thank you for the vote of confidence.
DataNav IT Solutions : Product looks great!!!!! about the authentication, i do believe a phone number kind of authentication would work. However this is a great idea and as Sam says, "Launch IT!!".
Solomon K. : Thank you. The app had a phone number authentication though Sam was talking about email authentication once one registers the school from the site. Definitely on launch phase right now. Thank you once again
Sam Gichuru : This is very impressed, I like the UI, it's very neat, I got an error trying to sign-up, I noticed I can only add one school, a single client might have more than one school or more than one branch, you might want to add email authentication but other than that, you are definitely ready to launch. I would say, launch ASAP! and deal with the pressure of supporting customers, will help this grow fast.
Solomon K. : Hadn't factored that a school with more than one branch. Let me work on it and add it. What we havent added is the app button to the site to direct a parent to download the app. Should be adding that as soon as possible. Let me check on the sign-up error and have that fixed. Thank you for the vote of confidence. We've already started reaching out to the schools and we will continue adding more features from the feedback received.
Edwin Mbugua : Hi Solomon, Great product you have here. You can have a feature where parents can rate drivers . Incase the bus develops mechanical problem an alarm (have color codes based on how serious the issue is ) sent to both parents and teachers. After sometime the transport managers can map their students on common pickup and drop off points .
Solomon K. : Hi Edwin, + We are already adding that to the parents app and should be live soon. + A notification/messaging system is already added to the system and the parents and administration can be notified of any mechanical issues. + We are adding a route optimization API to it to optimize all routes being used. Continuous development is ongoing. Thank you for the insights
Johnstone Mwanzi : Does this app come with a tracker device or its independent?
Solomon K. : Kindly elaborate what you mean by tracker device? The Parents are able to know where the bus is at all times and also relays the speed of the bus (all these are tracked through the driver app on the bus) and get notifications on every pick up and drop off which is distance based. I hope I've answered your question.
