Albany, NY — July 31, 2007 — VersaTrans Solutions, Inc. announced today the upcoming release of a new variation of its industry-leading school bus routing software. VersaTrans RP Limited Edition is a version of VersaTrans RP that is designed to fit the routing needs and budgets of school districts with limited enrollment. This exclusive software solution will be made available in September 2007 to only select school districts.
The announcement marks the beginning of a new era in school bus routing software. Vendors in the school bus software market either specialize in geographic regions, address only specific district sizes, fit only some budgets, or some combination of all three of these. With the announcement of VersaTrans RP Limited Edition, VersaTrans Solutions cements its position as the industry leader by offering solutions to districts of all sizes across North America at appropriate pricing levels. Says Ted Thien, VersaTrans Vice President of Sales, "VersaTrans RP Limited Edition rounds out our product offering: we have a full suite of products that address the needs and the budget of all districts: from the smallest school bus operation up to the largest metropolitan schools. No other software vendor today offers such flexibility."
VersaTrans RP Limited Edition has the same routing functionality as VersaTrans RP, currently in use in nearly 1,100 operations across North America. Most importantly, it is accompanied by the same turn-key implementation service package that has earned the company its 97% client retention rate. "VersaTrans RP Limited Edition customers will benefit from our outstanding implementation service model, which will find them quickly operational with the software," notes Doug Hamlin, VersaTrans Solutions´ President and CEO. "At the end of implementation, VersaTrans RP Limited Edition customers will have a map that has been well-honed by our mapping specialists including initial student location, they will be fully trained, and they will enjoy the same top-notch technical support assistance that has made our company name synonymous with ´terrific customer service´."
Part of that service includes listening to the desires and needs of the school bus market and responding accordingly. "Small school bus operations managers made it clear that they wanted to work with VersaTrans Solutions because of our outstanding service, but they told us they didn´t necessarily need all the functionality that VersaTrans RP provides," informs Terri Fallon, VersaTrans´ Marketing and Client Relations Director. "By listening, we learned that districts in this segment have unique needs which could easily be met by making certain features of VersaTrans RP optional."
