One definition of “change management” is that it is the intentional route traveled by an organization – school district or transportation service providers, for example – from where you are to where you want to be. There are few surprises if the change is strategic. But it’s harder when software licensing holds you back.


Look for Change Management in School Bus Routing Software

When school districts ask what to look for in school bus routing software, one of the things we recommend is to avoid software providers that charge a per-user fee. You shouldn’t suffer penalties for progress; change and growth are ongoing in well-managed organizations.

Four benefits of unlimited users over per-user fees are:

  1. Collaboration – The key to student management software is the automated integration of information updates in real-time. This substantially lowers the margin of error.
  2. Cost savings – Per-user costs get expensive, especially as increased administrative personnel are required to manage large populations of students. Again, large and growing school districts shouldn’t pay more for efficient software than smaller areas.
  3. Inclusivity – Software management by a few, well-trained people is an obstacle to growth. It fosters division, segmentation, and wastes time when only a fraction of your team can manage daily changes to student data. Software should be simple and easy to use for personnel at every level of operations.
  4. Scalability – With unlimited licensing, you can add or reduce personnel where needed as well as move them from one school to another without worrying about restrictions (or retraining).
