Getting Started

In NimBus, different types of interfaces are displayed for users who perform different roles, therefore, it is required to configure the hierarchy correctly before getting started. The possible role types are described below.

Service administrator. A top-level user with dealer rights in Wialon. The service administrator activates depots and controls access to them in the administrator interface.

Top dispatcher. The chief dispatcher of a transport company or an employee of a controlling organization. The role of the top dispatcher combines the functions of the service administrator and a dispatcher, therefore, the user interface with the Activation and Administration items in the main menu is available to them. On the one hand, this allows them to manage the depots of the subordinate users and give them access rights, on the other hand, they can control the execution of rides, run reports, and so on.

Dispatcher. A dispatcher or another specialist of a transport company. The dispatcher works with the user interface in accordance with their rights: creates schedules and operation patterns, assigns units to rides and monitors their execution, prepares reports, and so on.

Below, you can see a possible sequence of work in NimBus.

Working with Administrator Interface

The administrator interface is displayed for the service administrator.

  1. In NimBus, activate the depot for the required accounts.
  2. Grant access rights to the depot to the users who should work with it.

The top dispatcher can also perform these steps because the Activation and Administration items are available to them in the main menu.

Working with User Interface

The user interface is available to the users for whom a depot is activated (dispatchers).

  1. In NimBus, create stops on the same-name page.
  2. On the Routes page, create a route from the stops.
  3. On the Schedules tab of the route properties, create schedules for this route. If a schedule should operate only on certain days or in a certain season, create and apply an operation pattern to it.
  4. On the Units tab, associate a unit with the route.
  5. Using the switch, activate the automatic creation of rides for the route.
  6. In the user settings, configure the notifications you want to receive.
  7. Go to the Online page to monitor the execution of rides online.
  8. Run a report to see the history of the ride.

Instead of regular routes, you can use a collection of routes. To do this, create several routes with the same name in the second step of the algorithm above. Next, create schedules and blocks for them.
