SYSYTEM REQUIREMENTS
Sunray is Subscription based at $1,795 annually as a 100% SaaS Cloud Web-based Application, which only requires Internet Access and a Web Browser to use.
No Software to Install
No Server Hardware to Maintain

iShell
Masonlane has developed and programmed into the Sunray application a new technology feature that is called Independent Shells (iShells), which essentially provides the capabilities to build environments that are completely separate from each other.  

With iShells, schools and districts can create the current school year, forecast for next year, work on summer school, setup a simulation area, or build field trips and activities, all separate from one another, while remaining within the Sunray application.

Each iShell has its own Dashboard view which provides graphs, charts, and statistics, as well as, a very easy way to move from iShell to iShell simply by selecting from a list.  The iShell development allows for the creation of any desired work area, with no restrictions or additional costs.

 

Price: $1,795 yearly

Suitable for Large and Small Districts and Organizations

"Sunray from Masonlane has been a great program from day one.  We were up and running within a few hours, not days, with bus stops loaded into the program routing system.  Being able to use Excel to upload our information was a great time saver.  No special program to write the data into for Sunray to use and no huge IT meetings.  District staff were able to look up routing information within the first day of use and the public was able to find schools of attendance and busing information for their students within the first week.   Sunray’s support is great - just a quick phone call or email and our issues have been fixed within hours, not days."

"As a Transportation Supervisor, for Mapleton Local Schools in Ohio, we had been looking for a new program, my Superintendent got an email from Masonlane regarding the features of Sunray.  I immediately emailed Masonlane and got a response right back, with a  small example to try.  Shortly after evaluating Sunray we purchased the application, and have found that it is the most cost  reasonable and user friendly program that we have ever used.  Masonlane support has been very helpful, and any problems or issues that I may have had they were right on it, and I had the answer later that day or first thing in the morning.  They have just been wonderful to work with.  If your school is looking to purchase a routing system I would recommend Masonlane’s Sunray 100 percent.  It has made my life and job so much better."

This year, using Masonlane's Sunray application, Lake Local School District revamped and rerouted all of our bus routes without any problems. They continue to provide a high level of service with the lowest cost.” read more..

Using today's technology for tomorrow's work.

We've reduced the complex into a simple, user friendly, and low cost pupil logistics operations management web-based application. With Sunray you can spend more time on the things that count the most.

 

Innovative Integration.

Masonlane has developed and programmed into the Sunray application a new technology feature that is called Independent Shells (iShells), which essentially provides the capabilities to build environments that are completely separate from each other.   With iShells, schools and districts can create the current school year, forecast for next year, work on summer school, setup a simulation area, or build field trips and activities, all separate from one another, while remaining within the Sunray application.

Thanks to the mobile revolution, with Tablets and Smartphone devices, Masonlane has been able to leverage and integrate the technology involved to provide an easy and affordable solution to Pupil Transportation’s needs for GPS Tracking of School Buses.  We’ve iFramed the Followmee App under the Fleet Management section of the Sunray application.  In addition, the Followmee App is independent of Sunray, has it’s own management system, and can be used solely on it’s own, if desired.

GPS Tracker by FollowMee converts your smart phone or tablet into a GPS tracking device. Installing this app to a device that you want to track, it quietly records its locations (GPS, WiFi, or cellular triangulation) periodically and uploads to our secured server.

The Sunray application utilizes Maps and GeoCoding powered by MapQuest, including layers for Live Traffic and Weather.  The Mapping functions provided in Sunray are; Student Address Pin Locations, Bus Stop Management, District and School Zones with Distance Calculations, Safe Routes to School, Bus Route Assignment and Optimization with Turn-by-Turn Directions and “on-the-fly” Drag and Drop Route Modification, Live Traffic and Weather Layers.

MapQuest, Inc. offers online, mobile, business and developer solutions that help people discover and explore where they would like to go, how to get there and what to do along the way and at your destination.

Using Google Analytics and GeoCoding, the Sunray Dashboard displays numerous Charts and Graphs containing information gathered from the application, such as, Route Assignments, Counts, and Performance, Percentage of Students Assigned to Stops, Student Counts per Sub Accounts, Grade Counts, and Student Distances.

For convenience we’ve included the ability to access your Dropbox account and files directly from within the Sunray application.

"One place for all your stuff, wherever you are."  Dropbox is a home for all your photos, docs, videos, and files.
