Growth Fueled by Software That Helps School Districts Save on Transportation Costs
SCHENECTADY, NY - August 20, 2008 - Inc Magazine announced today that Transfinder Corporation, based in Schenectady, NY, has been included on their list of America’s fastest-growing private companies for the 2nd year in a row.
A leader in the school transportation software industry, Transfinder ranked #3790 on the list after achieving 80.9% revenue growth from 2004 to 2007.
Antonio Civitella, President and CEO, attributes Transfinder’s success to two key factors. “Our Transfinder Pro routing software is so user-friendly that districts can easily find efficiencies by consolidating stops and eliminating overlapping routes.”
In this era of sky-rocketing fuel costs, those efficiencies can mean big savings. “In some cases that means teachers’ jobs can be saved and important field trips don’t need to be cut.”
Transfinder software is used in over 950 districts nationwide, with the highest saturation in Texas and New York State. “The second reason we’ve been so successful is that our existing clients consistently refer us to other districts. They love the level of customer support they get after they buy. We’re always looking for ways to help them save.”
