TRANSnet now has Automated SMS Reporting to mobile devices

The TRANSnet Public Transport Priority System for SCATS now has a new SMS reporting sub-system that can automatically send an SMS alert to up to three mobile devices if a vehicle update alert is received.  Settings are managed through the Preferences dialog.

This allows unexpected outages of field communications devices to be instantly reported for attention/action by support staff, thus keeping the system operating effectively and efficiently.

A test button is also provided that sends a Test Text Message to the phone. This is provided to check that the system is configured correctly.
