Why Road XS is Better Than Using a Spreadsheet

Feb 19, 2022 | Product

While spreadsheet software like Microsoft Excel is widely used, it falls short when managing community transport services. Spreadsheets can expose your operations to inaccuracies, human errors, and security vulnerabilities.

Many transport operators still use a spreadsheet to manage their day-to-day operations.  A software like Road XS though, would transform the way these services are run, freeing up time, stress and worry.

Here are just some of the reasons why this is the case…

Tailored for Community Transport Providers

Road XS is specifically designed for community transport needs. We deeply understand your operational requirements and continuously improve our software based on feedback from our active online community. This ensures our solutions evolve with your services, helping you excel in service delivery.  Not only that, your volunteer drivers can access their journeys and real-time run sheets with ease via the Driver Portal.

Seamless Operations from Anywhere

Unlike static spreadsheets limited to one location and user, Road XS leverages cloud technology allowing you to operate securely from multiple locations. Access essential information like real-time reports and departure boards at your fingertips, simplifying your workflow and reducing stress.
