NimBus is the solution popular with partners from Sri Lanka and India to Colombia. This is another story of how it makes the lives of thousands of people easier and increases business performance. Find the details on the employee transportation project below.
SIBUR Tobolsk, a huge plant processing crude hydrocarbons and producing polymers, is located in a Siberian city Tobolsk. It is a part of SIBUR, the largest petrochemical company in Russia.
Many of its several thousand workers are out-of-towners. They don’t know the city well (especially just after arrival), and it’s difficult for them to navigate the city streets. What can be more stressful than being late on your first day? Besides, a lot of people come to the Tobolsk enterprises for business trips and are not familiar with the city logistics.
To avoid nerve-racking situations and make the working conditions as comfortable as possible for everyone, SIBUR management decided to create a tool helping to organize centralized transportation of people to their workplaces.
PK SKT, a Gurtam partner of 8 years with certified specialists on board, developed a suitable solution. The company specializes in vehicles, custom machinery, ships, and rolling stocks monitoring, as well as logistics.
PK SKT offered using NimBus, the Gurtam’s niche solution for public transportation tracking.
Together with SIBUR, PK SKT specialists built up 300 routes, set up schedules and stops, trained the dispatchers to edit routes and rides and reassign units if necessary. Now, roadworks or bus breakdowns could affect neither the quality of the services provided to passengers nor the monitoring quality significant for the company itself.
But what about passengers? How do they know where the bus is at the moment and when it arrives at the particular stop? For this, they can scan the QR code provided by the company, get the Locator link, click on it, and see the bus location on the map in real time.
There are hardly any projects that can do without difficulties, including the telematics ones. In our case, the approved schedule sometimes deviated from the real-life situation. So, the schedules were edited based on the data obtained after the routes were finished.
The project had been tested for over 6 months. As of now, more than a thousand employees of SIBUR Tobolsk can instantly find out the bus location thanks to NimBus and Locator. At the close of the test period the client got:
SIBUR buses take the workers to the plant
At the moment, the project is considered successful. It was implemented for SIBUR enterprises in Tomsk, Nizhnevartovsk, and ten other locations in Russia.
PK SKT promptly processed many passenger requests, and some of them were later included in the updated NimBus functionality:
We want to thank our partner for this feedback, as NimBus became more user-friendly not only for SIBUR employees, but for all its users.
