Dynamic Reporting

Using Tripfinder, district administrators can easily generate invoices and run their transportation reports based on selected  criteria.  You also can add reports to the system to address the most common district requests.

The Field Trip Detail Report includes all of the information a driver needs, such as  pick up and drop-off times and locations, directions, numbers of students and adults, phone numbers and notes.

When the mileage, time, and expense  information is entered into Routefinder, the Cost Reports function breaks down and totals the various expenses incurred.

Built-in Billing Reports summarize costs by account code or by school, department or  activity and provide you with the fiscal  analysis tools you need.

View Field Trip Requests – The entire approval process is automated. Color-coded lists and grids make finding and sorting field trips easy. 


Scalable and Secure

With Tripfinder you can define requestor and approval levels and easily add more users as your needs change.  You also can enable or disable features, show or hide specific data, and allow or disallow access to particular reports.

Tripfinder is authenticated with Active Directory so personnel have the ease and convenience of a single login and can easily switch to other Transfinder solutions without needing to sign in additional times.
