Asset utilization – using what you’ve got
Vehicles, trucks and other mobile equipment – it all represents a big investment for any mobile workforce. Asset utilization is simply making sure that you’re getting the best return possible. Our gps asset tracking software helps you do that in several ways.
Identify idle assets
Unused equipment is not just a poor investment – it can also be a symptom of an underutilized workforce. Monitored assets can easily be reported on to show current utilization, providing a good starting point for making improvements.
‘Just right’ your asset stock
Having more equipment than you need creates a lot of extra overhead for your business. Time spent maintaining, managing and repairing surplus assets is a massive drain on your productivity. With accurate job history reporting you’ll know what equipment you need for future work.
Big picture reporting
Your different locations might operate independently but being able to tap into company-wide reporting to check for available equipment could save time going out to buy or rent.
Minimize unproductive time
There’s unproductive time in every employee’s workday but there are ways to keep this to a minimum. Our solutions can help speed up the tasks that don’t directly contribute to your bottom line – compliance, regulatory paperwork, driving between jobs or scheduling maintenance.
Smarter routing saves miles of time
Help your team drive more efficiently between stops with optimized cloud-based routing that factors in the needs of your customers and matches it to your available resources.
Reduce compliance paperwork
Paperwork can slow down your business with a lot of unproductive administration. Go digital and have drivers complete their hours of service and vehicle inspections electronically.
Less downtime with improved maintenance scheduling
Stay on top of maintenance with automated alerts for future servicing, providing your repair shop or service provider enough time to order parts, schedule the work and provide replacements when needed.
Good productivity? Let’s make it better
There’s always room for improvement and even with optimized work order management you’ll see ways to fine-tune tomorrow’s plan to improve the team’s productivity. We provide you with the tools to easily compare the plan with what’s actually happened.
Plan vs. actual comparison
See how your mobile workforce is tracking, both in real time and historically, against the optimized plan. Identify deviations to make adjustments to the plan and avoid holdups.
Last minute or ad hoc jobs
Don’t let last-minute disruptions wreak havoc on the team’s productivity. Handle changes easily, reassigning or rescheduling work to accommodate new jobs as they come in.
Set your productivity goals and share with the team for some friendly competition as they compete to reach the top of the leaderboard.
Planning for productivity
It's easy to keep your teams productive with prioritized mobile job management and smart planning tools.
Work order management
Scheduled work orders can be sent direct to a worker’s mobile device at the start of their shift. Prioritize jobs based on location and specific customer requirements such as time windows.
Smart territory management
Build optimized territories for your drivers and provide better load balancing, less overtime and fewer miles to drive, while increasing customer satisfaction with more on-time deliveries.
Detailed job sheets
Mobile workers can benefit from detailed work orders that can be accessed using their mobile phone or tablet. Photos, customer notes and job history can be easily referenced to improve efficiency and avoid repeating mistakes.
Less paperwork, more productive.
If you can minimize time spent on paperwork, you can make every job more profitable. We can help you convert traditional paper forms to electronic versions, as well as automating the flow of information, saving time and improving accuracy.
