Cybit, the UK’s leading online Telematics Service Provider (TSP), has partnered with SPL World Group, to combine its Enterprise RealTime Scheduler and Cybit’s leading telematics solution, Fleetstar-MRM. This unique offering will use dynamic, company-specific vehicle data to underpin dynamic scheduling capabilities, so that organisations in the field service and home delivery sectors can achieve unprecedented accuracy in their business planning. The use of actual vehicle and road speeds in the scheduling process ensures that plans are neither over- nor under-stated and this calibration of data in the system will enable businesses to enhance productivity by as much as ten per cent.
The unique proposition moves away from previous approaches that used average road speeds to design schedules, so that businesses can now ensure their plans match reality. Previously, companies that under-stated the time taken for routes would have low productivity rates, while those that over-stated would struggle to meet their service agreements and also neglect many of their Duty of Care obligations. Closed loop planning using historic GPS-based travel times ensures accuracy within the schedules so that companies can clearly identify the resources they need and when they need them. These calibrations can be updated at regular intervals to ensure that they match the planned journey times.
“Vehicle scheduling is an essential part of business resource planning, yet a difference of up to 20 per cent between planned and actual activity is commonplace. This makes a massive impact on productivity,” commented Cybit’s Chief Executive Officer, Richard Horsman. “Cybit is now helping businesses to change that through its partnership with SPL. As a telematics company, our experience is built around the use of location information, and we feel that by using it dynamically in scheduling processes, this new proposition further extends the value organisations can get from their individual telematics data. This partnership is part of Cybit’s overall best of breed initiative, which aims to maximise the value of location information throughout the enterprise.”
“Our technology is leading the market in terms of exploring more effective ways to manage mobile resources. RealTime Enterprise Scheduler provides businesses with a genuine value-adding tool,” commented Scott Miller, Executive Vice President and General Manager EMEA for SPL World Group. “Partnering with Cybit combines the functionality of Europe’s leading telematics solution and our own optimisation tools, to enhance the operational benefits of both systems. Our collaboration opens more doors for businesses to streamline the costs associated with mobile resource management (MRM), while enhancing the service that they provide to their customers.”
The integration of the two systems is enabled through the use of the Navteq underlying map technology, which gives both solutions an identical database structure. This enables more effective integration and deployment and enhances the ease of use of the system. The integration enables businesses to input the actual historical journey times from Fleetstar-MRM into the SPL Enterprise RealTime Scheduler, so that the plans that are output are calibrated to company-specific information.
