"One of the best solutions we have and we are very happy with it"

“Swaidan trading co. is part of a well-diversified group, Al naboodah commercial group. Our company is into many segments and I am working for the commercial vehicle segment, we are the biggest suppliers of school buses in UAE and supply vehicles for public transport as well, Dubai RTA.

UAE is a smart country, especially Dubai is a smart city. The government insist on adapting a fully smart lifestyle. In our operations, we are on a stage of converting our school bus operations into a smart bus operations. All the aspect related to the vehicle, the students, technical data of the vehicle, and videos of the surroundings is connected to the operations of the parents, management of the firm or company who is in charge. The Galaxy 2021 platform is ideal in giving that support and we appreciate the service provided by Pacific Controls and their adaptability in changing their product portfolio according to the market requirements.

We are in association with Pacific Controls since the past 3 years. We are using their end to end IoT platform, Galaxy 2021. It’s a very convenient and good safety feature for public as well as private bus operators, especially our clients who are using this platform have given a very good feedback. The technical capabilities of this platform like live tracking, data of the vehicle, in case it’s over speeding, some kind of abuse or high engine parameters, we get all of this data in a live environment.

Regarding the School buses, the government of UAE is very strict on the school bus operations. All kind of safety aspects are considered very important. We have had incidents where the students have been sleeping in the vehicle and nobody took care of it, leading to unfortunate incidents. With this system we can track not only the vehicles but also the students of when they board and get off the bus. Over all, its one of the best solutions we have and we are very happy with it and with the support of Pacific Controls”
