Save on the time spent planning
Producing weekly schedules for your mobile workforce can be very difficult: it requires ad-hoc orders to be planned alongside fixed orders and cyclic appointments. Optimization cuts back the time spent planning drastically. Time for your planners will be freed up for them to focus on the most important matters.
Manage the complexity of hundred to thousands of stops
Your schedule usually requires a lot of complexity to manage: you need to balance frequent visits with ad hoc visits, inspections or recurring maintenance. Optimization manages this complexity for you: effortlessly prioritize relationships, jobs performed by multiple persons simultaneously, and cyclical appointments are incorporated into the schedule.
Reduce operational expenses
By optimizing your weekly schedules, you can reduce your operational costs by an average of 31%. Use your resources in the most efficient way: maximize the customers served and minimize overall costs. As a result, you can get more work done with fewer resources and save on fuel costs.
The workload of your employees is characterized by frequent or cyclical visits, fixed assignments, priority relationships and predetermined appointments or deadlines. Get the most out of your workforce by scheduling them weeks in advance.
Constraints for long-term planning
OnRoute takes into account several key elements when optimizing your week schedules. It assigns orders to your mobile workforce, managing the complexity of your multi-frequent visits while minimizing the total drivetime. A non-exhaustive list of such elements is given below:
- Specific technical requirements that match an order to (a part of) your fleet or operators
- Time windows and working hour restrictions
- Frequency of visits: visited each month/ week/ no more than .. weeks in between
- Already communicated deadlines/appointments for your customers
- Geographically dispersed operators/inspectors/workers
- Orders performed by multiple operators at the same time
