All these tasks generate valuable information that your business can report on such as:

- Price quotes presented to customers
- Sales revenue
- Sales taxes
- Time Management Information
- Dates and times of bookings
- Time taken for staff to complete services
- Response time requested by customers
- Customer Information
- Contact Information

With the TransitQuote API we give your transportation business website the ability to connect to any external application or system.
All the data above can be monitored, collated, reported on and used to improve your business.
