Volaris Group Expands Passenger Transport Enterprise Offering with Acquisition of RFind Systems,Inc.
June 19, 2012 - TORONTO, ON
Volaris Group today announced that its Trapeze Group division has purchased the assets of RFind Systems, Inc. (“RFind”) of Kelowna, BC, Canada. The acquisition helps to expand Trapeze’s transit enterprise solution offering with real-time location systems (RTLS) for vehicles and moveable assets.
The solution developed by RFind enables passenger transport organizations to track their fleet in real-time – even in typical ‘blind spots’ such as terminals, parking and maintenance yards and along fixed routes that are underground. In addition the solution enables transit agencies to automate driver assignments, track pull-outs and monitor schedule adherence all while using that data to keep the travelling public informed with real time updates on vehicle arrival times.
RFind makes planning, control and monitoring easy with up-to-date knowledge of the location of tagged vehicles, buses, train cars, inventory and equipment, along with their usage and maintenance history. Maintenance scheduling and work-planning benefits from real-time knowledge of where assets and equipment are located, ensuring the right asset (bus, train car etc.) and required service equipment are in the right location at the right time for the scheduled maintenance job.
“We’re excited to have found a new home with Trapeze,” said Sharon Barnes one of RFind’s original founders. “Trapeze has an outstanding reputation for innovation and experience in passenger transport solutions. The combination of our product offering with the Trapeze enterprise makes this an all around win for our customers, our employees and the passenger transport industry.”
