CalAmp for Here Comes The Bus

2b. Best Mobile Service for the Connected Life

CalAmp submitted its Here Comes The Bus app in consideration for the Best Mobile Service for the Connected Life submission.

Here Comes the Bus (HCTB) ® mobile app uses powerful GPS and telematics data insights driven by CalAmp’s telematics gateways, cloud platform and customer-driven software to deliver a sleek user interface that solves a universal problem: the arrival time of the school bus. CalAmp’s gateways use highly accurate GPS to provide real-time location and geofencing to deliver departure and arrival alert notifications to the app. The app allows parents to view when their child scanned on and off the bus.

Judges Comments

“This is a simple concept that delivers a huge amount of value to its users, alleviates pain points, increases efficiency – and provides interesting ideas on how the service might develop.”
