RouteMatch TS(TM) will handle the City of Billings' computer-aided registration, scheduling, and dispatching needs. RouteMatch has also proposed its Automated Vehicle Location (AVL)/Mobile Data Computers (MDCs) module for integration with Mentor Engineering, a leading provider of wireless technology systems.
The City of Billings chose RouteMatch's state-of-the-art transit technologies to improve its daily schedules and routes with integrated Geographic Information Systems (GIS) mapping capabilities. In addition, the City of Billings was looking for a powerful data management tool that could provide easy and accurate reporting capabilities.

The AVL/MDC module will provide the ability to locate and track vehicles, perform optimal vehicle dispatching, and maximize routing and scheduling efficiency.
"RouteMatch will offer a solution that will reduce the City of Billings' total cost of ownership for its ITS technologies," said Brent Conley, Western regional sales director.
