OmniSTOPdesign, the software package for creating attractive and accurate passenger transport stop or station information displays, has been completely updated, making it even easier to use. Now that the frequency of services is changing almost daily and other services are restarting, often with fewer staff to manage services, it is more important than ever for operators to communicate service changes quickly, easily and efficiently without taking up too many office hours.
Another update is the ability to power information screens with live departure data. This means that live video displays, such as at bus stations, can also receive continuously updated real time departure information to display alongside video adverts within the OmniSTOPdesign template.
The software from Omnibus gives operators and local authorities freedom to create bespoke displays themselves. OmniSTOPdesign makes creating bus stop displays easier, faster and much more flexible. Users have total control over styles, fonts, graphics, colours and paper size, giving them the opportunity to fully incorporate any relevant branding and graphics.
Displays can be set in advance, so that new data can be imported whenever it is needed. The design can be specified right down to individual bus stop level so every display can be tailored.
Omnibus customers using OmniSTOPdesign have been giving their feedback and their suggestions for software enhancements have contributed to the changes in the new release from Omnibus developers.
Peter Crichton, Managing Director, Omnibus, comments: “Informing passengers of changes to services in a clear and concise way is vitally important right now. The increased need for publicity, along with the ever-changing situation, means that having the ability to make those changes inhouse, quickly and easily, is a huge benefit.”
The team of Omnibus developers has worked hard to incorporate more than twenty individual changes to the software to enable operators to continue to update their publicity as things change over the coming weeks and months.
