Introducing: The University Transport Management Platform

Over the past six months, WeMove has been collaborating with Universities across the UK, to delve into the intricacies of their transport management processes and learn about their ambitious plans to improve transport sustainability.

These valuable insights set us on a mission to create a custom software solution to address the challenges Universities currently face and fast-track their sustainability goals:

The Challenges

  • Excessive admin time:  The manual nature of the booking process results in an excessive administrative burden on University staff, diverting valuable time and resources.
  • Finding trusted and vetted transport operators: Identifying reliable and vetted transport operators proves to be a cumbersome task for many universities.
  • Transport expenditure oversight: Universities struggle to maintain a comprehensive overview of their transportation expenditures, hindering effective financial management.
  • Invoicing and Payments: Keeping track of invoicing and ensuring timely payments is a constant challenge, contributing to financial inefficiencies.
  • Lack of Sustainability Reporting: Many universities lack a robust system for tracking and reporting on CO2 emissions, hindering progress towards sustainability goals.

Our Solution

In response to these challenges, WeMove proudly presents the University Transport Management Platform – a comprehensive solution designed to simplify and enhance the entire transport management process for universities.

  • Reducing Spending Through Competitive Bidding: The platform facilitates competitive bidding among vetted transport operators, ensuring that universities get the best value for their transportation needs.
  • Reducing Admin Time for Bookings: By centralising the booking process, the platform significantly reduces administrative overhead, allowing staff to focus on more critical tasks.
  • Centralised Invoicing and Payments: All purchase orders and invoice documents are stored securely on the platform, streamlining financial processes and providing easy access to relevant documents. The easy-to-use traffic light system gives simple oversight of the entire process.
  • Improved Student Experience: A smoother, more efficient transport system enhances the overall student experience, contributing to a positive university environment.

Going Above and Beyond: Sustainability Integration

But we didn’t stop there. WeMove is committed to advancing sustainability goals, and our platform reflects this commitment. With the WeMove University Transport Management Platform, universities can:

  • Make Informed Decisions Regarding CO2 Emissions: Access detailed reports on CO2 emissions associated with university transportation, enabling informed decision-making.
  • Offset All Transport Emissions in One Click: The platform offers a seamless way for universities to offset their carbon emissions for each trip, contributing to broader sustainability objectives.

The WeMove University Transport Management Platform is not just a software solution; it’s a catalyst for positive change in university transport management. Through addressing the specific challenges faced by universities and integrating sustainability into the core of our platform, we are empowering these institutions to enhance efficiency, reduce costs, and contribute to a greener future.
