New Zealand company KernMobile has signed a reseller agreement with Germany's FLS to offer its route planning and field crew optimisation software in Australasia.
According to the company, the scheduling engine FLS Visitour combines multiple factors such as planned and emergency tasks, workers, vehicles, equipment, different road speeds, and trips to the depot, to automate the best possible arrangement of appointments and routes.
KernMobile’s client console integrates with the FLS solution to show an up-to-date visual picture of the jobs that are scheduled, completed and resolved. The firm states that the software can also calculate the effects of emergencies, employee absences, cancellations and postponements through the day. KernMobile delivers the updated job list to works management and to the crews’ mobile devices.
KernMobile’s works management software is being used by local government and utilities to capture real-time asset data in the field, for work on water pipes or roads for instance. FLS’s back-end systems will allow for efficient organisation of crews and resources in these industries, and for telecommunications.
KernMobile CEO Kerry Connors said the reseller agreement means that Australasian clients now have access to these scheduling functions.
“FLS software’s comprehensive route planning and task sequencing translates into more jobs in a day, with reduced fuel bills and vehicle wear.
“The transparency of each job’s status and resources means KernMobile customers can truly quantify their operational efficiency,” said Connors.
