POWEROPT / ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

CONNECTING THE DOTS: CLEVER REAL-TIME ROUTE OPTIMISATION WITH AI

PowerOpt Algorithm: Welcome to real time and the heart of
FLS VISITOUR.

In 2004, after more than 10 years of mathematical research, the FLS team succeeded in developing an algorithm that maps the complex requirements of field service operations with real-time scheduling and embedded route planning.

The advantages of PowerOpt:
  • Real-time appointments for your customers: 0.1 seconds to the perfect appointment
  • High flexibility in planning through real-time optimisation in the event of changes
  • Cost savings by driving fewer miles and spending less on dispatching
  • Green IT: Significant improvement in your company's CO2 footprint
 

How does the Algorithm work?

TRY IT YOURSELF AND DISCOVER THE PERFORMANCE OF THE POWEROPT

PowerOpt live:
The squares mark the locations of your employees, each of whom can process a maximum of five orders. Generate new orders by simply clicking on any point on the map. Within seconds PowerOpt calculates the best allocation of orders to your employees and displays the cost-optimal routes. Choose either direct routes as the crow flies or street-level views of the routes by selecting 'Show Routes'.

And now it's your turn:
Please note:
In order to enable full functionality and correct display of the PowerOpt demo, we recommend to use the latest version of the following browsers: Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari. The use of an older version may lead to performance problems and limitations.

UNBEATABLE FLS TECHNOLOGY FOR OPTIMAL DEPLOYMENT, SCHEDULING, AND EMBEDDED ROUTE PLANNING IN FIELD SERVICE

What is the difference between 5 and 5,000 field resources?

For FLS VISITOUR there is none. We guarantee real-time scheduling and route planning for high data volumes with no batch or overnight runs.

This allows you to schedule hundreds of orders within seconds and reschedule at lightning speed in the event of changes. Maximum performance for efficient field service management, even in extremely dynamic environments.
Would you like to find out more or experience PowerOpt performance for yourself - preferably with your own data?

In a demo discussion, we will show you how decision transparency will optimise your field service and achieve cost savings in a very short time. With a comparative calculation, we uncover completely new potential with regard to your service targets.

Simply contact us or book an appointment for your personal demo.

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

In order to further enhance your scheduling accuracy, we have implemented sophisticated predictive analysis methods that enable intelligent predictions about appointment durations and arrival times (ETA). Thanks to the self-learning approach, your appointment accuracy is continuously improved while taking your latest call data into account.

Your advantages:

  • ‘what if’ simulations for optimum capacity and resource scheduling
  • Increased up-to-the-minute appointment accuracy thanks to real-time traffic
  • Improved scheduling accuracy for all follow-up calls thanks to predictive analytics
  • Increased customer satisfaction

The fundamental challenge of route planning: The Multiple Travelling Salesman problem

SIMPLE SCENARIOS CREATE COMPLEX DATA STRINGS

The problem of the Multiple Travelling Salesman (MTSP) – in today's use cases of the service technician or delivery driver – is a classic problem of the service and logistics industry. If the problem of the shortest route between any number of points is extended to include, for example, real-time traffic data, desired appointments, predicted maintenance intervals and order processing times (predictive maintenance and predictive analytics) or restrictions such as hygiene measures and qualifications, AI is the target-oriented technology that makes the emerging data volumes manageable and exploits new potential.

If a service technician is stuck in a traffic jam, the routes of other technicians are optimised, the customer can be informed of a potential delay or the technician is suggested an alternative and thus time-saving route - and all this is done in real time, i.e. immediately. And using artificial intelligence.
