BOSS is an authority in software solutions for campus parking management software. BOSSCARS is designed to directly integrate with Oracle® -based Campus Information Systems such as SunGard Banner® or PeopleSoft® .
BOSSCARS is a modular parking management system designed specifically for colleges and universities. Direct integration with Oracle® -based Campus Information Systems eliminates batch file processing or duplicate data entry. Information such as permits, vehicles, citation history, and VIP or Scofflaw status is readily available on a centralized customer screen. Unique campus needs and business rules are accommodated with 20 modules, nearly 100 adaptable reports, Institution-Specific Parameters and Validation Tables. With modular adaptability and direct integration with your campus information system, BOSSCARS maximizes your current investment in Oracle® and ensures that existing hardware and data remain in use.
Scheduled batch processes, normally necessary for software using an interface to communicate with a campus information system, are unnecessary when you invest in fully-integrated system software such as BOSSCARS. Direct integration with your Oracle® -based Campus Information System ensures that a single database remains your sole repository of customer information. Instead of needing to perform a batch process to implement updated student information or post citations to a student account, this information is automatically and seamlessly available because it exists in the same database. The ability of our software to be customized through modules allows our software system to meet your parking offices specific requirements, and you dont pay for functionality you won't use. Features that do not fit the needs of your campus now may be necessary in the future, and BOSSCARS modular capabilities cater to those changing needs characteristic of campus environments.
The tools you provide your field officers will benefit your efficiency, and more importantly, your revenue. Access to reliable customer information and a minimal margin for error are key focal points in the development of BOSSCARS. The Handheld Ticket Writing Module equips your officers with the information they need to make informed decisions in the field. The Handhelds are synced to the student information system and kept up to date with the latest customer information. The hassle of dealing with erroneous citations is eliminated for the customer and for the parking office.
Use of the Payroll Deduction and the Online Payments Modules automates the payment process. This expedites communication and payment collection for the parking office, and also saves your customers time by keeping them informed via the web. The Web Interface Module decreases your parking office's workload because it gives customers the opportunity to update information and manage their permits outside of the parking office, without duplicating data entry.
BOSSSOFTWARE starts with developers who bring over 65 combined years of experience working with Campus Information Systems. While we emphasize great importance in involving your campus IT staff from the beginning of any software implementation, our goal is to eliminate the need for campus IT to diligently import data and rewrite programs every time functionality is added or an update occurs. The idea of integrating rather than interfacing is to avoid IT headaches. With integrated software, you are not only removing the need for batch processing and inefficient information retrieval, but you are also giving yourself room to grow. Modules written for integrated software will already communicate with your campus system from the start, leaving no need to pay your IT staff or a vendor to develop a custom interface.
