Alivi's New Partnership with Trip Master

by Rachel Davis

Alivi is excited to announce it is now a Premier Partner with Trip Master, a software company that has established a state-of-the-art ATMS software to assist transportation providers manage the individuals they transport to and from their appointments.

 

Who is TripMaster?

TripMaster originated in 1982 as CTS Management Company, an East Coast-based company with a focus on transportation services. As the CTS Management team focused on solutions for the transportation industry, they quickly saw significant gaps in transportation-based technologies. 

As a result, in 1986, CTS Management evolved into CTS Software and shifted its focus from the broader industry to transportation management software exclusively.

For the past 35 years, CTS Software has built its experience and reputation as the leading provider of NEMT software for billing, dispatching, and scheduling in the United States. Today, TripMaster powers approximately 500 NEMT and paratransit providers—a list that is growing by the day—ensuring, regardless of how small or large the operation is, they are ever-more efficient and successful, while increasing rides and improving rider satisfaction.

 

TripMaster software helps transportation providers with a range of services including:

  • Automated scheduling that improves on-time performance (OTP) and eliminates manual scheduling challenges and errors
  • On-demand reservation management that facilitates same-day pick-up or future pick-ups as needed
  • Mobile data terminal solution, ParaScope, which facilitates real-time communication between dispatch and drivers, ensuring vehicles are safe, schedules are current, routes are accurate, and riders can complete transactions with secure electronic signatures
  • Automated vehicle location (AVL) so you always know where your fleet is and where it’s headed
  • Automated mapping to ensure your routes are always updated and accurate
  • Reporting and billing features that enable you to customize reports, meet billing and regulatory requirements, and facilitate Medicaid billing.
  • Rider ticketing for safe and efficient fare tracking and collections
  • TripPortal to enable riders to schedule trips at any time, freeing up your staff from reservation calls to handle other tasks
  • Vehicle maintenance to stay on top of your vehicle warranties and maintenance needs
  • Pre- and post-trip inspections allow for identification of potential vehicle issues to help keep drivers and riders safe on the road
  • Automated trip reminder calls to reduce the number of no-shows

Alivi and NEMT Providers

Alivi also provides unique opportunities for NEMT providers.
