Dutch transit agency deploys GIRO's <i>HASTUS</i> software

Posted on November 23, 2009

GIRO Inc. announced the successful deployment of its HASTUS software following an expeditious implementation of the solution at Netherlands-based Qbuzz. HASTUS has been delivering productivity gains since it went into production in Friesland and Rotterdam in November, five months after purchase.

GIRO's bus-stop timetable publication tool, HASTOP, will also be implemented by the Dec. 13 launch of Qbuzz's bus service in the provinces of Drenthe and Groningen.

The initial HASTUS solution purchased by Qbuzz in June 2009 included the software's main scheduling modules: Vehicle, Crew and CrewOpt. The results produced during the initial stages of implementation demonstrated the flexibility and stability of the scheduling suite and led to the addition of the Roster module for building theoretical driver rotations, as well as the DailyCrew module for managing day-to-day operations.

The DailyCrew module now allows Qbuzz to efficiently plan daily work and manage operations while taking into account factors such as employee absences, vacation time, training and duty exchanges. The module is also used to ensure compliance with work rules, automatically perform payroll calculations, and produce various reports such as daily statistics, payroll and monthly worksheets.

This fast-track installation was achieved through concerted efforts by GIRO and Qbuzz to implement the solution within a five-month timeframe. The project teams worked closely together to configure the application to meet Qbuzz's operational management requirements, which included modeling rules specific to the Dutch transit industry.
