INDUSTRY: PEST CONTROL
MORE EFFICIENCY AND BETTER SERVICE IN PEST CONTROL FIELD SERVICE THROUGH OPTIMISED SCHEDULING AND ROUTE PLANNING
The advantages of modern deployment planning in this industry:
Pest control companies continue to merge, acquire, and break away. The larger players are seeing results from new economies of scale, offering lower-priced, longer-term contracts in the commercial sector. New specialist entrants are created every year, and the industry has been growing at double-digit rates for the last decade. This was again highlighted with recent reported industry revenues in Germany of around 600 million euros. Smaller, domestic-focussed companies are supplementing their income with additional field services, including property care (such as window cleaning, insulation, and waterproofing).
This leads to a growing, highly regulated industry that has developed complex appointment data including a mix of skills, time on site, reactive appointments, and asset control. Modern pest control uses new technologies such as digital, sustainable, and non-toxic chemicals - yet these elements still require monitoring systems which create further delivery and collection schedules. Even new so-called 'smart traps' require regular location visits by service operatives.
