"An EFFICIENT and ECO-FRIENDLY system that CONNECTS drivers and passengers
to save money, make new acquaintances and help the environment"

Scalable

It is already operating in a number of local government areas in Australia. Now also available in the United Kingdom.

This service was first commissioned to meet the needs of the NSW Ministry of Transport. But we are experts at hosting both corporate and government systems. We are highly skilled in deliverying stable, hosted solutions to hundreds of government and commerical clients in Australia and the world.  

Customisable

We want to give you complete control over information on the website, so we built it with effective management functions, including a content management system (CMS).

It is template based so we can brand the system easily with your logos and banners.

Sustainable, easy to use, efficient and fun!

Now it's your turn. You need no technology expertise to get going, just contact us. We can put your organisation online with your first carpool in days!

 

"Carpooling"

Two or more people making arrangements to travel together in one car


USER-FRIENDLY DESIGN

Implementation

- Drivers and passengers register their contact details and journey requirements on the site or app.
- The software automatically puts passengers and drivers with matching requirements in touch to discuss possible journey sharing arrangements.
- If agreed, they meet up en route and complete one or more journeys together.

Members of the community can opt for an initial "Test Drive" to try the service before signing up.


Take a Test Drive!

How Does It Work?

· The carpoolers from your community register on your free website
· They select their journey and search for others going in the same direction
(both drivers and passengers, or passengers with a licence)
· They meet up on route or at selected locations


Benefits for the Carpoolers

A commuter carpooling just one or two days a week can make all the difference:
· Saves money
· Reduces wear and tear on the car and you
· Helps reduce carbon gas emissions
· Makes roads safer by fewer cars
· Might end up doing new friends and connections



"It is a practical way of sharing transport costs and reducing road congestion and vehicle pollution."

Did you know?


An average person spends 40 hours each year stuck in traffic.

The average carpooler can cut out as much as $600 each month on the cost of their commuting drive.

By carpooling twice a week, 1,600 pounds of greenhouse gases can be kept out of the air each year.

If 100 people were to take advantage of the carpool option every day, more than of 1,320 pounds of carbon monoxide and 2,376,000 pounds of carbon dioxide could be removed from the air.

About 18% of a person’s monthly budget it taken up in car maintenance, repairs, and gas.

Carpooling means fewer cars on the road each day which means less oil usage, and this can help reduce the nation’s dependency on foreign oil.

If everyone opted to carpool just one day a week, the traffic on the nation’s major highways and roads would be reduced by as much as 20%.

Case Studies


Koha, Interdocs and GratisNet in Northern Territory Health

The Northern Territory’s Health Library Network signed up for Prosentient System’s document delivery system and were impressed with the after sales service.  “We found Edmund to be very good to work with” explained Resources Management Librarian, Ruby Lindberg.  “No matter how many times we rang he was always patient and helpful.  After sales service and support is very important to us because we don’t have the technical in-house knowledge of the applications to do it ourselves”.  Their good experience with Interdocs soon led the library to join GratisNet, and then to take up the hosted Koha Library Management System.

In this case study published by the Australian Open Access Support Group, Gemma Siemensma, Library Manager at Ballarat Health Services, describes the thinking and processes behind the introduction of their DSpace repository



Koha and DSpace in the NSW Parliamentary Library

When the Parliamentary Library of New South Wales began using Koha as its Library Management system and DSpace as its digital repository, the staff didn't do so to make a political statement about the viability of open source software. “This was just the software that fulfilled our requirements,” said Deborah Brown, Parliament’s chief librarian.

While having a physical collection, NSW Parliament library's lifeblood is digitized news media. Through their parliamentary copyright exemption they reproduce and store dozens of articles each day for the use of the Members of Parliament (and their staff) who make up their user base.
