Setting up a Ride is Easy
makes it easy to set up new ride requests. Drop-down listing of clients, drivers and destinations lets you
set up a new request in seconds.
You can track different kinds of rides you provide (medial appointments, grocery shopping, etc.), select the date from a pop-up
calendar, add notes and send notifications via email to both client and driver.
For those situations when the client will be several hours at an appointment, you can split the trip and assign two different drivers.
At a Glance Weekly Calendar of Schedule
Assisted Rides provides you with a color-coded weekly view of your scheduled rides and services. Hovering over an entry displays a detailed
information box about that request. It's fast and simple to use!
Monthly Calendar of Scheduled Request Helps Keep You on Top of Things
tracks how many rides given to each client, volunteered hours, miles and calculate your "in-kind dollars" so
critical for grants requiring matching funds. Also tracks "no shows" by client and driver and abondoned rides.
will also report rides by destination. Allows you to really show different organizations how much of an impact
your efforts are having in bringing individuals to their facilities.
If you have many clients that go to the same locations again and again, you can give the administrative staff of those locations their
own login so they can schedule new rides as needed. After all, if a client is scheduling their next appointment to a hospital, why not
let the same person schedule their ride? This avoids the client forgetting to call you and request the ride later, an important
consideration when helping senior citizens or people on disability.
