Crave InfoTech’s Asset Tracking Solution is a one package solution with hardware, software and implementation services. This application helps the client to track their movable and immovable assets geographically and enjoy tremendous cost savings due to greater efficiency. The Asset Tracking Solution will help track your vehicles, immovable assets (transformers, poles, hydrants, mains etc), show reports, track real-time current locations, addresses, and routes driven. You will have the opportunity to accurately monitor the driver, vehicle efficiency and productivity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, using real time or stored data.
This solution allows tracking your vehicle and the drivers in the field using GPS technology.
Traditionally utility workforce is a labor force with lot of challenges to implement the changes.
Vehicle tracking : This solution makes it easier to implement these changes on management, supervisor dispatches and field workers. Managers can obtain real time and historical report of the movement of vehicles, receive alerts for predefined warning conditions like speeding, excessive idling, route deviation, and excessive out of range. In addition this application can help maintaining the health of the vehicle if customer decides to track OBD II vehicle bus data. With the help of ODB II information we can predict the maintenance requirement using more advanced information and help fleet managers making decision of expensive repairs.
Job tracking and map based dispatch : Using this solution utility industry will be able to track all type of Jobs on the Map; Emergency leakage, Meter maintenance, Meter reads, Connections & Disconnections, Payments & Collections, customer complaints etc. Dispatchers & Supervisors will be able to see jobs and their real time statuses on the Map alongside the vehicles. This will simplify decision making process of assigning jobs on the map and eliminate contacting on radio and expensive phone calls. Once assigned system automatically send jobs to the mobile device of the assigned technician if he is equipped with the mobile application. This eliminates any manual delays and verbal miscommunication. Field technician will know urgency of the job based upon the priority assigned by dispatcher / supervisor. Dispatcher/Supervisor can simulate routes for specific technician for the jobs assigned.
Field routing : With the help of routing application field technician can obtain routing. Field routing application allow user to decide his own sequence of the jobs and then obtain driving directions. The application is equally capable of prioritizing optimized route based upon predefined criteria’s. (Specific to each mobile user) including avoiding toll roads, avoiding highways, priority of jobs, type of jobs.
Our proprietary algorithm will define most optimum route based upon these parameters and the appointment time for a technician. These factors ensure that high priority, and high delinquency customers are attended first without losing appointment time with optimized driving route. Routing application has out of the box integration with most of the mobile applications using predefined API’s.
We are partnered with several GPS hardware vendors to integrate the Asset tracking application with range of hardware choices for acquiring the location of the vehicle. We help you choosing the right hardware based upon your specific needs.
