Tanat Valley Coaches adopts Omnibus depot allocation solution

Tanat Valley Coaches on the Shropshire-Welsh border has chosen Omnibus’s cloud-based depot allocation software solution, OmniDAS, to improve efficiency and grow its business.

Tanat’s investment into OmniDAS follows the acquisition of bus services in and around Oswestry in September 2021.

OmniDAS will help Tanat Valley to “optimise resources and reduce administration costs” by providing control over drivers and vehicles in real-time, alongside data flows to human resources, payroll and operations. The software monitors and enforces drivers’ hours rules, while managing work and rest, overtime, enhanced payments and more duties.

Says Chris Chadd, Managing Director of Tanat Valley Coaches: “To ensure our bus services are delivered efficiently, we needed a complete depot allocation system which streamlined work processes from allocating resources through to performance reporting.

“OmniDAS completely meets our needs, being cloud-based and scalable while providing operational control of drivers’ hours, wage payment feeds into SAGE and a reduction of current administrative processes.

“As a company operating for 101 years, we wanted to bring the business forward to the 21st century with investment and start to work smarter by digitalising processes and expanding the business. To do this, we needed a partner with industry experience and a proven, scalable solution to support us as we grow the business.”

Adds Peter Crichton, Founder of Omnibus: “We are thrilled by this new partnership and look forward to supporting Tanat Valley Coaches. We are delighted that our software solutions continue to make Omnibus the partner of choice for bus operators of all sizes.”

Tanat Valley was founded in 1921 and provides public bus services and school transport across Mid Wales and Shropshire, with a fleet of 40 vehicles. It also offers excursions, tours and private hires.
