Fares Modelling

Manage complex ferry fares using our flexible modelling solution

PDMS have recently launched a new online system to help ferry operators model complex fares structures. Our easy to use software replaces complicated Excel spreadsheets with a more user friendly, secure and scalable solution. You can quickly create and store different versions of fares information, create new routes and fares and run “what if” scenario testing. The software is flexible to accommodate a wide range of standard and non-standard fare types.

The fares modelling system is provided on a fully managed basis which means you don’t need to worry about infrastructure, security or business continuity.

In 2015 we will also be launching our timetabling and scheduling system - making it easier for ferry operators to analyse the consequences of any timetable changes and manage the timetable change and roll out process. You will be able to create new routes, new timetables and new schedules, run “what if” scenarios and assign vessels to timetables for capacity planning purposes.

Easily handles complex fares and timetables

Our Compass ferry fares and timetable modelling software features the capacity to handle complex fares and timetables, including non-standard fare types, seasonal routes and multi-journeys.

Modelling tools

Using our Compass modelling tools, you can assess your business' risk using consequence analysis.

Performance Management

Our software allows you to use performance management data to monitor your businesses' performance - a key feature for improving your operations and profitability. 

'What if' scenario testing

Using our 'what if' scenario testing, you can easily and quickly analyse the impact of route changes and additions to timetables, drastically improving the roll out process of new timetables and schedules.  This feature also allows 'what if' testing for assigning new vessels to timetables, and calculating capacities for fares and planning purposes. 

Easy-to-use

Simplify complex fares and timetabling modelling for your staff with our easy-to-use software that replaces legacy software and complicated spreadsheets.

Fully managed

We provide Compass ferry fares and timetable modelling on a fully managed basis, so you don't need to worry about infrastructure, security or business continuity, giving you the time and resources to concentrate on what matters the most: your business. 

Saves time

Our ferry fares and timetable modelling software allows you to publish and share fares and timetable information both internally and externally much quicker, using 'what if' scenario testing for flexible route creation and adjustment, freeing up your resources and improving customer service. 

Secure and scalable

Regardless of how many routes or ferries you operate, and how many employees you have, our ferry fares and timetable software is fully scalable and unlike using other legacy software systems or spreadsheets, you can control who can and can't see and change specific data, with full audit trails on system data.
