Closing date has passed.

Short description

Kolumbus organises school transport for approx. 16 000 school pupils. This is both for pupils using normal buses and for those who need special transport (mostly taxis). Kolumbus organises transport for all pupils in primary and secondary schools (1st to 10th years) in cases where the municipalities order and pay and for pupils in sixth form colleges in cases where Kolumbus itself orders and pays.

Kolumbus needs a central database for all users (pupils receiving transport and others). We believe that a database with a web based user interface will be the best system for such a database, which requires daily maintenance in the form of changes in the transport of pupils.

The database shall be a tool for case handling with a good overview and maintenance of information on each user/pupil and their transport requirements at all times. There are no requirements for planning functions, but the database shall have functions that support planning work. The system shall also produce reports that form the basis for invoices. Transport requirements is to be understood as planned journeys for a given period. This means practically year round for pupils. The system shall have interface with 2 other systems that Kolumbus has for planning trips with special transport and issuing electronic transport cards for ordinary bus transport.

Kolumbus would like a new system as soon as possible and will preferably procure a system that is in use and for which there is experience, c.f. the qualification requirement:
