The transportation industry is more efficient this morning because of SubOut.com; a subscription-based communications exchange enabling transportation companies to source business, buy and sell parts, and streamline subcontracting via a secure, easy-to-use interface accessible from any web-enabled device.
"SubOut.com is an innovative web-based tool that streamlines the subcontracting process for the bus and limousine industry", said Thomas Howe, an award winning communications software architect and one of SubOut.com's founders. "This easy-to-use platform uses the most up-to-date technology to reduce the overhead produced from charter booking processes by allowing charters to be posted and accepted online, in real-time."
Subscribers can communicate and negotiate with a network of bus and limousine companies, agents, and charter services to post and bid on jobs. Dead head miles now show a profit for every mile that a vehicle is on the road, when availability is posted on the system.
SubOut.com subscribers may buy and sell vehicles and parts at a discount, and request emergency help 24/7; including asking other members for road-side service, locating a hard-to-find mechanical part, or just another bus to get their passengers to a safe destination.
All SubOut.com subscribers receive a free API – a piece of computer code – which integrates SubOut.com with virtually any internal booking and/or CRM system, resulting in a seamless bidding and fulfillment process.
SubOut.com is built to serve thousands of subscribers and process millions of transactions with the goal of becoming the communications hub of the entire industry. News of Subout.com is spreading quickly, interest is high and early subscribers are plentiful. US Coachways, the largest bus and limousine broker in the United States, is an early launch customer, committing to more $30 Million in charters on the system by the end of 2013. That commitment demonstrates the value of this service and illustrates the demand for technology solutions for the bus charter and limousine industry.
According to Anthony Vaccarello, of Transportation Partners of America (TPA), a transportation certification organization: "The timing for Subout.com is perfect – everything in this business is still done by word of mouth and over the phone – It's a challenge for charter companies to grow their network or reach contacts quickly, even with web-enabled mobile devices right in our hands! Subout.com changes everything – instant communication means buses are filled, charters are sold, idle time is reduced and revenue goes up. Everybody wins!"
Upon initial launch, SubOut.com will serve primarily the Charter Bus and Limousine industry – but will branch out quickly to embrace all types of transportation needs.
