Frequently Asked Questions
How much does Accreditation Manager cost?
Accreditation Manager offers multiple packages to suit your business’ needs. For a complete compliance management system, you need our Compliance Essentials package.
The installation of Accreditation Manager’s Compliance Essentials involves a set-up fee. Then, based on your bus fleet size, a monthly fee is charged.
In addition to the Compliance Essentials, Accreditation Manager offers customisable Plus+ Features that make management of bus operations more efficient. Each Plus+ Feature is customisable meaning you only pay for what you need.
Each Plus+ Feature can be trialed free of charge for the first 2 months.
Can I buy the system outright rather than pay a monthly fee?
No. In order to constantly keep your bus compliance documents up to date, Accreditation Manager is constantly updated and upgraded to the latest bus compliance government regulations.
