Frequently Asked Questions

 

What kind of transit providers use your software?

Our clients include public and private paratransit providers, NEMT agencies, taxi and limo companies, PACE/adult day programs, livery services, and everything in between. Trip Master supports on-demand and small-scale fixed-route capabilities, an array of funding sources, and operations with anywhere from 1 vehicle to hundreds of vehicles.

 

How do free trials and demos work?

After a live demo to show you Trip Master’s features and functionality, we set up your own database for a 30-day free trial. During this period, you can ask as many questions as you need–it’s often a convenient jumping-off point for the comprehensive training that happens after you choose to purchase Trip Master.

 

How do we learn to use Trip Master?

CTS offers on-site and online training options, including easy-to-follow manuals and online videos. Throughout our 30+ years of training new users, we have a fine-tuned but customizable process that starts at the bottom and results in your staff and drivers confidently using our software.

 

What if we have questions after going live?

Our 24/7 tech support is second to none; we know you by name, and you will always talk to a real person if you have a question or concern. Our team approach includes your trainers and account executive, who are in it for the long haul, too.

 

Can I import data from external sources, like brokers?

Yes, we can import from a variety of existing formats for major brokers like LogistiCare, Access2Care, and MTM, and many others, and can build customized import templates for new brokers.

 

Does the system include a way to track users’ actions?

Yes. Our Event Tracking feature stores information about actions performed by dispatchers, administrators, and drivers using ParaScope, giving you detailed information about changes made to trips, rides, accounts, and more.

 

I don’t need things like IVR or a vehicle maintenance module. Do I have to pay for those?

No, you only pay for what you need. This modular approach lets you build your own program!

 

How much does the software cost?

The million-dollar question! CTS Software offers an array of pricing options based on your budget, feature and module requirements, fleet size, and the number of office staff who will use the software. In general, we can say that relative to similar software products, customers find our pricing to be very competitive, with no surprise add-on costs for personalized support, custom reports, map functionality, or software updates.

 

Do you have a pay-as-you-go pricing model?

Yes, our software-as-a-service model is month-to-month, with no upfront costs besides the initial training fee. We also offer standard pricing, often used by organizations funded by grants and annual budget disbursements.

 

How do we pay?

You can send us a check, pay by credit card, or set up a bank autodraft–easy!
